    Pros

    The top management is great and there are many opportunities to learn and get involved. Excellent work-life balance.

    Cons

    There is turn-over in the entry level positions, but that is to be expected.

    I have been working at DiscoveRx full-time

    Pros

    Great employees, close knit, friendly, supportive environment at BioSeek. People passionate about their jobs. People stay many years and make a career of working in the biotech industry and BioSeek attracts dedicated people.

    Cons

    There are very limited resources for employee training and peer recognition. There are no bonuses and the salary raise does not cover inflation. Vacation time is limited also and the benefits are very expensive for a poor health plan.

    I have been working at DiscoveRx full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours, work is straight forward. Casual environment. Not overly stressful.

    Cons

    Poor compensation. Lack of growth options. CEO cares more about money than his employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good management that can guide the employees. Also think about rewarding the work people put in with better raises and bonuses.

    I have been working at DiscoveRx full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of things to learn.
    Many brilliant co-workers.
    Interaction with diverse people, from the people in Fremont, to the new BioSeek group, the people down in San Diego and colleagues in Japan and across Europe.

    Cons

    Almost no upward movement for nearly all.
    Stagnant career and professional growth.
    Feeling burned out, and seeing many of your colleagues the same way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the employees to grow along with the company.

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

    Pros

    There are some wonderful, dynamic, and passionate people working at this company. It was fun to talk to them l, and to bounce ideas off of them. I got along with most people, and most were willing to help when requested. My colleagues were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes, management in the department I worked in could be somewhat unorganized. There weren't many opportunities at my time of employment to move up in the company. I felt stuck in my position.
