Pros

Some of the brightest people I've met who've take 30-read technology farther than most thought it could go. Most people operate in an environment of mutual respect and without letting egos interfere with the work at hand.

Cons

Senior leadership needs representation from the industry they're in. High tech guys are bright, but they don't speak the same language as biotech customers. Also, an Affy-dominated commercial team that suffers as a result of the singular perspective.

Advice to Management

Hire straight shooters from within industry.

    Pros

    The technology is amazing
    The company is working to cure cancer and Alzheimer's!
    Generally the office culture seemed great, I really liked the CEO, and I liked my boss

    Cons

    The health biotech industry in general is a bit of a crapshoot, with all the insane patent fights, challenges in getting sufficient funding, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Need some sort of "carrot & stick" to better reward the areas that function well and re-align those that keep missing targets. The "stick" should not be punishment, IMHO, but either more employees or different leaders in those areas.
