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.

    Do Not Work For or With This Company. Go Find Lorax Compliance Instead.

    Pros

    -After employees got evicted from the Santa Clara office due to failure to pay rent they were asked to work from home full time, so the commute was great.
    -Wonderful horror stories to entertain friends and family.
    -Strong bond with fellow employees. Nothing like trauma to bring people together.

    Cons

    - Paychecks were consistently late. Some employees were 6 months behind on pay at one point.
    - Healthcare was cancelled for 20 days due to lack of payment forcing employees to go almost a month without vital prescriptions and health care.
    - Sexual harassment. One employee was asked by the CEO if she was ticklish. Another employee displayed a photo of a partially nude woman on his phone with the explanation "It's a guy thing." Want to discuss these behaviors with HR? The head of HR quit almost a year ago and was never replaced. Employees were told to go to the CEO with any issues.
    - Low compensation especially for silicon valley. My position paid $10,000 more at other companies.
    - Customers are told our systems are automatic when in fact much of the work is done manually thanks to ridiculously buggy software nobody seems to have time to fix. We were asked repeatedly to lie to customers about this and other aspects of our work. Obviously this results in unhappy customers and a thoroughly unpleasant work environment.
    - Crazy work load. No one is replaced, when someone quits the cheapskate CEO just shuffles work onto remaining employees until they are all doing the work of 4 employees. (Except the CEO and his boys club who seem to spend a lot of their time getting drunk presumably at strip clubs.)
    - Company is constantly being served with lawsuit papers. Tax reps were in the office regularly (when we had an office) looking for the CEO. Immigration came looking for another employee who was subsequently deported.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't matter they don't act on input.
