    I worked at Caris Life Sciences full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the reasons I have enjoyed working at Caris, is that they value their employees, the pay very well and encourage healthy lifestyle, i.e. incentive programs for active life in form of discounts on monthly medical ins. premiums. They have good benefits.

    Cons

    They are too strict on how you take time off, i.e. they won't let an employee take time off with out pay unless its a family emergency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it would be ok to let the employee decide how much unpaid time off they can take (within reason).

    I have been working at Caris Life Sciences

    Pros

    Medical benefits were good and the culture is business casual but laid back. Teams are small and you have a chance to work on multiple projects.

    Cons

    Management isn't clear or seem experienced in really leading. Although benefits are good the company is hurting for money which affects everything else.

    Pros

    People are friendly, that's about it.

    Cons

    Some of the senior management is disconnected from reality. This company is a good prototype for "The Office Space" movie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry less about office sizes and iPads and more about fixing the very real core problems.

    Pros

    The pay is good. The coworkers are the ones that keep you going.

    Cons

    Supervisors and managers do not listen to their employees. The run employees into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.. they know more about what is going on with the company then the ones that help run it and even own it.

    Pros

    I think that there is Great pay. There are always lots of opportunity to move up and pay raises are always good.

    Cons

    I think that there are corporate politics. Sometimes in management you may have to make some decisions that are difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that there are equal opportunities if you work hard and look for advancement. Things are fair if you work hard.

    Pros

    Tons of growth, numerous opportunities for advancement, great pay, encouraging community & culture. It's an exciting time to be working for this company with so much coming down the pike.

    Cons

    Honestly, there might be some mild corporate politics what with recent changes (a portion of our company being purchased by another corporation), but what company doesn't have any political issues?
