In need of updates.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fremont, CA

I have been working at BioGenex full-time

ProsThey are willing to provide the training for most skills required for the job. Bagels on Friday mornings.

ConsNot compensating staff for their effort and contribution. The management team needs to be reworked for better management skills. Company is ran via dictatorship.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to value your employees because they are also the heart of the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

One of the worst biotech firms in bay area

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at BioGenex

ProsNone, could have given a negative star if possible,

ConsThe founder of the company is unprofessional and doesn't value talent/people working for him. Get everything in writing before you work here, as they can change terms once you start working and could treat you like slaves. Low pay, bad work culture, no work life balance too many negatives to count. Would not recommend this company to even my enemies.

Advice to Senior ManagementFounders are not worth working for, work here if you have no other place in world and you are running out of food.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

An okay experience

Chemist (Former Employee)
San Ramon, CA

I worked at BioGenex full-time for more than a year

ProsA great job for people entering the work force. They celebrate birthdays, free bagels on Friday.

ConsI see people leave and join the company very often. A lot of lifers, but they have low moral.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have the feeling that the company is wishing to get bought out by a larger company. The company has been private for so long.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Horrible place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Ramon, CA

I worked at BioGenex full-time for more than a year

ProsHardly any. They are trying to compete with the biggies with literally no lab equipments for R&D. If you don't have a job, try this one

ConsBad work environment, terrible and unreasonable management, high attrition rate and long work hours. Bad compensation package.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to learn how to respect employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lots of technolgy and challenge, but not applied in the right places.

Sales (Former Employee)
San Ramon, CA

I worked at BioGenex full-time for more than a year

ProsThis is not a unique company in that many of the workers are the best I had the pleasure to work with.

ConsFor all its technology, at times management gets involved and the emotional stress and push-back to get things done can be frustrating. The company has come a long way, but still has some to go.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower employees more often.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Worst company to join and work for even if one does not have any job or any other alternative.

Applications Specialist (Former Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I worked at BioGenex full-time for more than a year

ProsReally nothing positive worth mentioning .

ConsWorst leadership which is better caller dictatorship by the CEO.
Most unprofessional, disorganized, unethical organization.
Employee unfriendly, never honors committment even on salary. You can forget about everything other than monthly salary credited to your bank.
Over selling and false information regarding revenue, profit, number of employee, role and every thing else during recruitment.
Unfair and unstated expectations and unreasonable demands/pressure on employees.
Utopian ideas to get the best free of cost.
Not conducive to discharge ones role and deliver anything due to politics promoted by the CEO himself.
No employee is trusted and so asked to leave immediatley once the employee gathers little information/knowhow of the technology/market.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange your attitude towards your employees or you will perish.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
