    Pros

    Nice coworkers who are all searching for positions at other companies. Commute to Germantown is better than having to go farther south on 270. Good restuarants for lunch nearby.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment. No direction, priorities change every day. Directors/VPs have no clue about science and even less about gene therapy. Maybe some of them should read the primary literature from 20 years ago so Intrexon would not continue to repeat past mistakes and waste unbelievable amounts of money. Layoffs happen every several months, at the same time new employees are being hired. There is such high turnover that no one there knows what studies have been done in the last year, let alone from company inception. Employees are running scared and the inept management has no clue why the morale is so bad. Worst place I have ever worked and I have been in biotech for over 25 years!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shut down and cut your losses. There is no way to fix the horrible mess you have caused.

    Pros

    This is a very good place for politician. Some people on director level can get high salary by working on the technician's job.

    Cons

    Some director loved to work on technician's job to make easy money. It was weird that the director competed with technician.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The director skilled on technician's job is not a manager, but a senior technician. Hire a senior technician is much cheaper than hire a so called "director" with high salary.
