Pros

Nice new building in Carlsbad. Above average compensation.

Cons

Business Development, Finance, and IT have a long history of high turnover and low morale. Isis is a small company, so there's little opportunity for learning new things. Isis values style over substance, so incompetent employees have a legitimate shot at success as long as they schmooze properly. If you're not politically savvy, you'll hit the ceiling quickly or be fired outright.

Advice to Management

Look in the mirror and you'll find the reason for many of your problems. Advice to BOD: it's time to refresh some VP talent.

    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
