    I worked at Ambry Genetics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great work life balance.
    People actually care about their work. Very motivating!

    Cons

    As with every workplace, there are a few people whose attitude can cause minor irritation but nothing to be worried about!

    I worked at Ambry Genetics

    Pros

    The company is very willing to take aggressive risks (this could also be considered a con). Great work life balance as well.

    Cons

    Salaries are on the bottom end of the spectrum. Some people have positions that they shouldn't have.

    I have been working at Ambry Genetics full-time

    Pros

    Ambry Genetics has been an amazing place to work, as a whole the company is a very warm and friendly place. All the employees are passionate about the work that they do here. The patient is always the most important thing here. It's the kind of place where people actually care about the work they do rather than just punching a clock. Ambry feels more like a family than a company. I love this place.

    Cons

    The pay could be a little better. But the bottom line is i would rather work for Ambry Genetics than another company even if the pay were better. This is the kind of place where everyone contributes to the company, and comes together in a way that i have never seen before at any other company i have worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few more holidays off would be nice, but thats about it.

    I have been working at Ambry Genetics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fast paced, high tech, your voice is heard, fun people, rewarding. This is a great company not just because the science and technolgies are exciting, but there is also a feel that we are doing something good for the clients and patients. People care about their work and the people it affects. Great atmosphere. Ambry is a team environment.

    Cons

    Miscommunication, some caddiness, could use more employee incentive programs, occassional long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more room for advancment. Work on communicating with employees and not changing our schedules too much.

    I have been working at Ambry Genetics full-time

    Pros

    Best company I've had the opportunity to work for. Creative, Entrepreneurial work environment. Company provides you all the tools and resources you need to get work accomplished. Great employee's + enjoyable work environment + enjoying what I do & what company stands for = me putting in many more hours than I realize, as do most who work here

    Cons

    slightly below average payscale. I suppose it's a trade off for working for a great company you enjoy working for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to focus on quality science and launching of new nextgen panels, while also continuing to improve on TAT's and communication as well.
    good job in filling communication gaps with some former management

    I have been working at Ambry Genetics

    Pros

    Type of work, really cool people, location is awesome, vibe is UP, laid back culture, respectable people, and respectable job. Doing something worthwhile, not just punching a clock. Like my work hours, like my boss and like my co-workers. Like knowing we are doing something new or in half the time it used to be done. Feel like this place is going to be around a long time.

    Cons

    Hoping to make more money in the next year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's not go through any lay-offs tthe rest of the year. Looks like we're on the right track.

    Interact more with individual team members - allow occasional work from home opps for everyone, not just a selected few
