    Pros

    Fast paced, great place to learn a lot quickly! The experience gained at Compugen helped me land my dream job 2 years later.

    Cons

    Work life balance was terrible and it was a very stressful job. Compensation is only so so, certain positions are definitely better than others. Benefits are a joke! No RRSP match and you pay 25% of the premiums for your group health etc. (They didn't tell me that at time of hire). Keep a close eye on your pay stub! Mistakes happened frequently, both under and over paid. Vacation entitlement is also lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Identify, reward and promote your key contributors: even if they don't reside in Richmond Hill! You might also want to step up compensation & benefits! If you want to attract and retain the best and brightest you need to offer at least as much as the employer up the street.

    Pros

    Compugen's culture is open and warm. Everyone goes out of their way to get to know who you are and offer assistance when called upon. Sure there are some challenges but the challenges are manageable and get turned into opportunities, personal growth and advanced learning.

    Cons

    The leadership team should find more ways to communicate down to their employees about the projected growth, strategic alignments, company values and how the individual and department goals tie into the company goals. This is not clearly understood and people tend to just come in, do their job and go home. More communication would allow employees insight into how their jobs have a direct impact on the company goals, service enhancement and client experience.

    Advice to Management

    Share the company vision - Have regular quarterly town halls - Offer more training to mid-level Managers - Invest in Technology and Enterprise tools.

    Pros

    Stable paycheque, never threatened anyone with termination, when you got to see management they sometimes bought lunch. I honestly have no fond memories of Compugen.

    Cons

    Nearly zero contact with any management, no opportunities for advancement, no opportunities for raises. I'm not sure which was worse, knowing that you punched in and out for a company that doesn't care about its employees, or knowing that no matter what you did, that's all you would ever do there. After working for this company, I can safely say that I would never return. It is a disappointment across the board. There was no opportunity for working from home, or any flexibility from the management when you got to see them.
