Love the founders, excessive growth and middle management destroyed the culture.

Pros

Benefits, Compensation, cash to burn, pockets of innovation remain in the company. The founders are strong and are genuine.

Cons

Poor middle management, inexperience and arrogance made life very difficult. Too much time playing and not enough time delivering. Academic prejudice runs deep, politics and back-stabbing is the norm.

Advice to Management

Read the Googlegeist and Management feedback carefully, eliminate the Politicians!

    Pros

    You receive mentoring from researchers who are at the top of their field. Your perspective on research will radically develop. The perks make life easy so you can focus on working. The people are the kindest.

    Cons

    Things move very fast and can be ambiguous. It's a tough job but the rewards from successful performance greatly outweigh anything.
