    I enjoyed my work at Ambit and coworkers were very friendly.

    Senior Research Associate (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsFriendly 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 Senior ManagementSomething 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    From GREAT to OK

    Scientist (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecent 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Used to be great, then it all went downhill...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall 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 Senior ManagementBe honest, and communicate what is going on to the rest of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
