I worked at NextBio

Pros

Free lunch and snacks
Good leadership
Looking to ride the next big wave

Cons

The code is a mess, poorly documented and in one massive project
Scrums can sometimes feel unproductive

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Love the direction of the company, it can make a great impact on healthcare. So keep it up.
Consider reorganizing the code. In the rush to get fast iterations, the project is just too big and difficult for anyone to wrap their head around.

  1. Competent team, but tedious work

    I worked at NextBio as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The managers were approachable and relatively flexible. (Upon request, I was able to work from home with relative frequency.) The scientific team was competent and knowledgable.

    Cons

    The structured training was minimal, though questions were answered when asked. The work was tedious, but this was the nature of the work (basically data entry, but requiring a high level of scientific literacy and understanding.)

  2. Great Product, bad management
