    I worked at Solazyme full-time

    Pros

    Nice and friendly people. Lots of products. Might need to scale them back. Free food on Tuesday. Casual environment.

    Cons

    Need to develop your employees to what you want. That means training, developing process and procedures, making sure you have a timeline developed on where you want the people to be at. The process and procedures all need to be documented. There is an attitude that I have this tribal knowledge and I will not share it with anyone. Need to get away from blaming people if something happens. If they do not succeed in the short term they are not to blame. They need to look at the process and if it is broken then it needs to be fix it. How is anyone going to be successful. It was very chaotic and you asked someone for help and they were not sure. You were left to figure it out yourself. Then you start to realize that this might not be for me. Really sad. There is no work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Develop process and procedures. Do not over promise and under deliver. Be honest. The truth will eventually come out and the employee might just move on.
