    Pros

    Great people to work with and close sense of teamwork and shared responsibility.

    Cons

    Value of the company was not appreciated by new (large) corporate owners -- as is too often the case with acquisitions.

    I have been working at Berkeley Heartlab full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is some serious dedication at BHL with only a handful of fellow colleagues that have left in the past several years. Those that have left were either 1.) laid off or 2.) were executive level and looking to grow career.

    Cons

    Executive level management has had high turn-over so corporate direction is not always clear to those in other levels of management or in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain communication with employees.
