I worked at Codexis full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great place to learn and advance.Very nice people,great lunch room,clean and modern buildings.Campus is in good location and safe.

Cons

Can't tell who's calling the shots. Supervisor tells you one thing and the manager tells you another and in the end your gone.They all should practice what they preach( coming in late and leaving early).A lot of back stabbing by managers.Can't fire you face to face but passes the buck.Facilities manager will have you digging thru garbage to save the planet but every light is always on,heat to high and nobody ever turns off a computer.Lot of waste by tossing perfectly good stuff in dumpster.Don't get injured on the job here because once you hit their clinic your days will be numbered right up to the day you get a release from the Doctor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit making everyone VP's and give them what they need.Bring back "BUBBA" and let him sort you guys out.He'd know who would have to shape up or ship out.

    Pros

    It is great place to work and grow. You constantly learn new things. There is tight deadlines, but the management empowers employees to have good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Managers not really trained. It will really improve efficiency and communication if some efforts are put to assess managers.

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for. They had a worthy vision, great technology, strong partners and wonderful people.

    Cons

    I'm not sure the company has any vision or plan of how to regroup after the lay-offs. The lay-offs were also handled abysmally.
