    Isis values creativity - as long as it fits in the box

    ProsNice new building in Carlsbad. Above average compensation.

    ConsBusiness Development, Finance, and IT have a long history of high turnover and low morale. Isis is a small company, so there's little opportunity for learning new things. Isis values style over substance, so incompetent employees have a legitimate shot at success as long as they schmooze properly. If you're not politically savvy, you'll hit the ceiling quickly or be fired outright.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook in the mirror and you'll find the reason for many of your problems.
    Advice to BOD: it's time to refresh some VP talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
