    I worked at Synthetic Genomics full-time

    Pros

    Good people to work with, enough budget to get equipment, interesting work.

    Cons

    Lack of company focus. Too many directions, projects and initiatives to excel. Infrastructure functions (finance/accounting, IT, marketing) have had recent turnover and/or are recent additions to the core science teams. Burnout is an issue in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the vision.
