I worked at Nanosphere

Pros

To get a pay check

Cons

No communication from upper management.
No one really knows what's going on except for upper management.
People's perception of you becomes reality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Turnover the reigns to someone else

    Too much opacity and micro-management for a medium-size company.

    I have been working at Nanosphere full-time

    Pros

    Some employees/managers care very much about the scientific process and producing the best products possible.

    Cons

    Micro-managing, loss of productivity due to middle management problems, too many people there to draw a paycheck or to lord power over others. Lots of time wasted on communication issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of interpersonal relationships of middle management. Foster more career advancement opportunities and peer-review of management.

    I have been working at Nanosphere full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great co-workers, good health insurance. Requesting time off has never been an issue.

    Cons

    Facility is terrible, cannot keep talent, QA/QC doesn't understand how to design good quality systems, very minimal focus on improving the technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some good talent into the company and really try to make them happy enough to stay on for more than a year or two.
