  1. Led by a CEO who has a huge ego and has problems trusting people and this culture percolates thru out the company.

    Pros

    The antisense technology is novel and unique with lots of potential.

    Cons

    Company doesn't care about their people, extremely negative environment, people are expected to slave on low salary, promotion tactics used by management are awful. no one seemed to be happy working there, culture is not progressive but dictatorial.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to take care of your people first , get over your trust issues and give people a fair chance. Your culture doesn't promote innovation, it is to be made humans into slaves and it's time to change!

  2. A great company to work for!

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, 401k, health, life, stock options and bonuses.
    Friendly co-workers and a family oriented atmosphere.
    Progressive thinking and environmentally sensitive

    Cons

    It really depends on the department you are working in - in regards to organization. Some teams work really well together and some do not - it happens in all companies.

    Advice to Management

    None
