Good potential for product- just wish it was a better place to work.

Pros

-Had a noble mission about extending human life.
-Very smart co-workers
-A lot seemed to get done with minimal number of workers. They were efficient at squeezing out every last once of effort from the team.

Cons

-Management could be at times very condescending, interrupting people, dismissing ideas out of hand;
-As an intern, expect to get mindless assignments for which you are overqualified. Expect to get complicated/confusing instructions for assignments you spend days on, only to find out it was a useless assignment to begin with and not needed. They do not care about wasting your time. And they will likely not pay you.
-People keep leaving! Employee turnover is high. It's demoralizing.

    Pros

    - Exciting mission to 'measurably prolong the life expectancy of humankind and improve people’s quality of life'
    - Fun people in the office
    - Great office location
    - Catered lunch and dinner
    - Free chocolate

    Cons

    - Culture of fear and intimidation
    - They will give you stock options but won't tell you how many are outstanding so you can't value them
    - Extremely high turnover. Great people leaving all the time
    - Everyone is scared of the CEO. He's often yelling at someone in the back room and doesn't seem to listen to people when they try to speak
    - Messy code base
    - Little to no transparency
    - Exhausting hours. People are in the office from 9AM - 2AM many days and in on Sundays too
    - 'Agile' processes are not followed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop yelling, listen to your team, and be honest with them

    Pros

    Finally a startup that is actually changing the world for the better!!! Great people. Fast paced innovation. Lots of collaboration. Fun events. Great office location. Free lunch every day!

    Cons

    Can't stop talking about what you're doing and the company (friends, family and even strangers may get tired of the excitement) :-) People are busy, so you may need to ask for needed support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More awesome team activities! Assign a mentor to each new person.
