Asuragen is a nice place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Asuragen

ProsThere are some great people at Asuragen. The work/life balance is nice to see. The Management is very approachable.

ConsThe technology being delivered is based on providers commonly available. Delivering a commodity can be a challenge. The Diagnostic division and Genomic Services division don't maximize the synergy of a one company approach. Each division is independent. Training of the staff is under appreciated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Asuragen needs tune up

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Asuragen

ProsVery innovative company. Proud with its ancestry (Ambion - The RNA company).

ConsThe management is somewhat confused and communication among management members is very weird. This reflects on all interactions within the company. The desire is there but the execution is lame. Thanks God they are not army commanders leading the troops out there in the mountains of wherever you want to choose it.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to people and look them in the eye. Try to be a coach and not a dictator.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great small business

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Asuragen

ProsSr Management respects employees and encourages a work/life balance. The products and services offered by Asuragen are top notch. Employees are incredibly talented and driven. The president is incredibly involved with the operation, and has a good handle on how things are running.

ConsSome if not most of the departments are short staffed, and to be a truly successful company, Asuragen needs to hire more personnel.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
