    I worked at eBioscience full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good experience to learn new skills not necessarily part of a job function, anyone is able to "lend a hand" to do work outside their responsibilities, gain experience.

    Cons

    Unprofessional leadership, potentially legally liable if one chose to pursue it, situations ignored if leader holds stock or is deemed "untouchable". Rewards of title and promotion to the bullies in the company.

    I have been working at eBioscience

    Pros

    The people are warm and in research at least, very smart and helpful. The company has allowed an entry-level like myself back then, to get a lot of great experience as a newcomer. Casual environment with lots of free food events. Get to know workings of a biotech company. Easy to speak with supervisors since it's a small company and if you wish, you can get experience in almost all of the departments. Most people I met had worked for at least 5-7 years showing they are very comfortable in the environment, have established friends in the company's friendly groups and the fact that you can move around and even advance over time in the company.
    I owe this company for giving me a chance to learn and even though I had other offers from a bigger company, I chose this for the amount of experience I would gain.

    Cons

    Con to above: if you work very very long and long enough, some of the most underqualified and unprofessional people can get promoted to higher positions. The company needs to establish firm educational grounds on which a certain person can be chosen as the lead of a certain group. HR is quite useless and most of the time seems like doing work as a favor to you when in fact it is his job. Low pay for the industry, good for entry-level but it is a guaranteed factor in why anyone leaves this company, otherwise the culture is very comfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees more! qualified employees! And find prevention methods to weed out unqualified individuals from advancing to higher positions where they create problems for other departments with their disregard and also give an otherwise hardworking company a bad name in the public eye. The company has a reputation of sucking up to people for jobs and lazy workers. To be honest, I feel that is FALSE for 90% of the employees but these people that enter due to negligence by the management, give the company a bad name. those working hard need a competitive salary otherwise expect any ambitious, intelligent employee to leave. Preserve the chickens instead of gobbling up all their golden eggs.

    Working for eBioscience could be a lot better if Management would increase our Salaries to Market Rate!

    Pros

    Flexibility, friendly environment, benefits ok.

    Cons

    Pay is BELOW MARKET, and because of this many people are leaving and have left.
    Also, the Moral is Very Low because of Low Wages!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to retain people and Talent, you should pay them what there WORTH based on Market Rate for San Diego. Pay them in at least the 50%-75% Percentile!

    Pros

    This really depends on who you're working with and for...a lot of the people here are very friendly and courteous, but there are clicks, so boohoo. Just from looking around, a lot of the managres and supervisers try to maintain a good balance between life and work. Some make you work more, and some are way more relaxed. There is room for growth for sure because this is a small business, and so you can move around departments and gather different skills. You also get noticed for doing a good job too. Casual environment, and there's a basketball court across the parking lot. You get a free lunch at the end of every month.

    Cons

    the pay isnt competitive at all! More like pennies,probably why some people don't do much work, or perform badly for what they're hired for. There is definitely favoritism here. Kiss butt and you will most likely get promoted, even if your not qualified for the position. Some people "in charge" aren't professional at all, such as cussing in front of their group. Relaxed environment, but if you like a more professional setting, you're better off somewhere else. IT takes forever to respond. This place needs a lot of work on itself. They need to invest more in their employees. And even though the people are nice, some people like to play the blame game here when things go wrong, just some people. I have seen some who take ownership for their mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your employees, who cares about a lunch if the wages are bad. New equipment too, please. And please give appropriate raises according to the person's performance, a compliment isn't going to work, show appreciation. We work hard to make you a lot of money, so please share some of it.

    I have been working at eBioscience

    Pros

    They have many products to sell to the public and are doing financially o.k.
    There is flexibility with your work schedule depending on your boss and position.
    Monthly lunches.

    Cons

    Basically they hire people below what there really worth and it is very difficult to get Promoted or Recognized. They also hire a lot of young people (cheap pay). Many people don't care and just do their job half--- because there paid cheap! The building and used equipment always has PROBLEMS! Difficult to get I.T help!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your People by paying them a "Competitive Wage". Promote more people and offer your Employees Incentives like Stock Options. Invest in new Equipment!
    Be approachable and friendly! Have an Anonymous Suggestion Box and an Open Door Policy!
