Pros

Their vacation time/sick time benefits are great. In addition, there was always a good chance of getting recognition and credit for your work.

Cons

Limited mobility at Foresite Systems as there is not much room to get promoted. The learning curve is not very steep and one will struggle to add new skills to their current skill set after a short period of time. There is also increased workload on the individual with a small number of employees. The pay is not very good and the bonuses/raises/promotions are poor, and if you got lucky it was minimal. There is also not much job security as the company struggles to pay current employees (a small number) on time - yes, pay is late on several occasions. Despite being a small company where you would expect more flexibility, Foresite seems to have more uptight/ red tape atmosphere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should focus on creating more transparency especially involving all levels within the organization. Human resources policies should be fair and exercised across the whole company. Management should trust their employees more fully, which in turn will boost productivity. Managers and supervisor should receive better training so they are able to maintain good relationships with team members. Management should also look into delegating more responsibility within the team.

    Pros

    The company is an open book that is defining a brand new market sector. If you like to be in a cutting edge place, you'll fit in well here.

    Cons

    Foresite is not a place for folks who don't come with a solution oriented mindset. They won't tell you what to do and you won't progress if you don't innovate and excel beyond your function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful who you hire. In such a fast growing business, the hiring process can be shortcut for expedience. However, as the reviews show a bad apple can spoil the bunch.

    Pros

    Above average pay-scale for the area, "team building-events", small group feel, free coffee, pinball and video games in the lobby. Pretty killer fish tank in the main lobby

    Cons

    * "Start-up Mentality" means no one can make a decision or hold leadership accountable.
    *Repeatedly instructed to intentionally deceive clients about deliverable dates, development efforts and software patches.
    *Extreme micro-management feel.
    *Pay Day was never pay day.... always late, always an excuse, never the truth.
    *No communication between leadership members among themselves and limited discussions from leadership to the workforce.
    *Old Boy's Club - all the Brits were taken care of.
    *Expectation to work 12-16 hours days to interact with UK Software Dev Team and my US Based clients.
    *Let's not forget changing Medical Providers 4 times in 9 months. That is horrible leadership. Lost my co-pay three times. If you are going to take that approach, fund an HSA for every employee.
    *Significant amount of employee turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Be transparent. Take ownership. Make your employees the priority.
    *Bring some Development resources to the US instead of keeping it all offshore in the UK.
    *Pay people on time, every time, no matter what.
    *Have a corporate roadmap and share that map with clients and employees alike
    *Start a retention compensation plan for employees who want to stay....
