    Pros

    The staff are generally a great group of people. Very healthy bonus program if you're willing to work long hours. Free lunches Mon-Thurs.

    Cons

    Long hours are pretty much expected. Very little bonus opportunity if you can't work long hours due to family commitments. Senior management is totally unrealistic about progress goals and essentially ignores feedback from staff and middle management. Company founder, while brilliant, has only an email presence and contributes nothing but inflammatory propaganda.

    Advice to Management

    Listen! Substitute great products for ridiculous timelines.

  2. Fast-paced, friendly work environment.

    Pros

    Most of the positions are entry-level for young scientists, BS, MS, PhD. I worked as an intern for a summer during college and was treated very well. Pretty outgoing group, very friendly. Higher-ups are accessible and seem to like their work.

    Cons

    Can be a bit crazy at times, but I worked in the early start-up days when we were trying to make deadlines. A lot of us put in extra hours, but they were incentivized appropriately with bonuses and food.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose that early culture that rewarded risk-taking and encouraged collaboration across all levels of the company. Employees that are happy to come to work produce better results.
