Pros

You can work at a company that is marketing a novel consumer-focused product in an exciting and new industry of personal genetic testing. People are bright and passionate about what they do. Flexible work schedule.

Cons

Extremely poor management that completely ignores the customer as well as employee needs. Major legal threats to the very existence of the business. Poor pay and complete lack of communication. Lack of focus and direction in management decisions.

Advice to Management

Get your act together and focus on the product development. Stop being elitist and pay attention to your employees as well as customers.

    Pros

    Fast paced
    Super hot, high profile company
    Attracts top talent
    FDA progress
    Great compensation and pre IPO options
    Fun, collaborative environment

    Cons

    Current office is cramped and worn
    Growing very fast so lots zigs and zags in short terms plans
    Cutting edge business, selling genetic information directly to consumers, so still carries start up risks

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the path, you are leading huge change
    Try to limit distractions and stay focused on priorities
