    Pros

    Friendly environment, collaborations, unique technology, exciting developments

    Cons

    - Few opportunities for promotion or career growth in my department - Company is frequently restructuring - Infrequent communication with senior management regarding important issues that affect employees

    Advice to Management

    Something as simple as quarterly updates as to the companies standing, progress/achievements, and corporate plans wold be appreciated by employees. A short newletter would suffice, just to keep unity of outlook for the company between management and scientists.


  2. Postive introduction to biotech

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn different aspects of the work. Management is very willing to share information (this began to change as the company grew).

    Cons

    Although there are great opportunities to learn different aspects of the job, there was very little chance for promotions and financial compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Recent changes in management resulted in change in the feel of the company. Celebrations used to be shared with the entire company and everyone felt as if they had a reason to celebrate company accomplishments, large and small. Employees now feel isolated from others within the company. The family feeling is lost.

    Pros

    Small company with a lot of friendly people. There is also great IT support.

    Cons

    -Financial reward for high performance was extremely lacking/absent. -Management is hard to trust. -Seemingly high turnover, and frequent restructuring of company. -Burnout due to expected high level of output (with subsequent little reward).

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, and communicate what is going on to the rest of the company.
