    I worked at Calera full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The initial vision managed to pull together amazingly skilled scientists, some of which are still there Cool research, young team, closely stick together Management has got a clear view on challenges and speaks to it openly

    Cons

    Tough to motivate new hires on changed vision Long-term cycle - so nothing close to completion Raised a lot of capital, potential returns will be low if any for employees

    Advice to Management

    Close one commercial deal ASAP


  2. Lots of work

    Good work/life balance as long as you meet your deliverables Good co-workers that helped out

    Cons

    Company is going through growing stages so was constantly in flux. Never know when it will change.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    fast paced environment, technology oriented, Carbon dioxide related work, good employees, great location, potential for obtaining patents, opportunity to meet with investors. Some of the senior management were really good. Unfortunately, they left / forced to leave.

    Cons

    promotions have no meaning here. Only the senior management seems to be getting promoted. Management is not willing to listen to criticism.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees (not only yourselves), be open to criticism, maintain an open culture - recognize that this is a start-up company. Will Roach was a very good CEO.
