A confused place to work. Too many products, too many goals. No set direction/path.

I have been working at Amyris full-time for less than a year

Pros

Some people are nice to work with. Great perks for employees.

Cons

I have never seen any Company except Amyris that has so many Managers and Directors, and most of these people are not even appropriate for the roles. Management lacks communication, projects lack execution. Unnecessary tight deadlines, and inefficiency created by the management, requires people to work long hours, holidays and weekend. Poor and sad place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher managers is not the solution to every problem. The key is to retain staff, and people hard working people happy.

    Great people but VC-led with no market experience

    I worked at Amyris full-time

    Pros

    Culture and people are awesome. Great perks and supportive colleagues that you can talk turkey with and have a few beers

    Cons

    Classic example of VC-led company. Low in operations experience/execution and understanding of product verticals. Some people are VERY political

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has already been shaken up a bunch. VCs (John Doerr) are trying to maintain their reputation so I presume they'll just keep financing their way to a John Doerr exit that's not too much of a blemish
