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.

    I worked at NextBio full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Collaborate with knowledgeable junior and senior scientists in an industry that has an impact on human health.

    Enjoy going to work. The environment is energetic and easy going.

    Gain skill that will help you find career opportunities in the genomics industry.

    Research clinical genetic studies and sometimes learn about exciting rapid developments in a variety of human disease.

    Work independently with a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    If you don't have a masters or P.H.D. (and in some cases even if you do) the very rare, longterm career opportunities tend to pay salaries that are below average for the required degree. If you only have a B.S. see this job as a paid internship (if you see it that way this is actually not a con).

    Though senior management is very friendly and easy going they are rarely straight forward. It is uncomfortable discuss performance reviews and compensation. There is no schedule for payroll for non-employees so you will be pleasantly surprised every 2-4 weeks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is inspiring, energetic, intelligent, friendly and fun!

    Make sure each individual knows where they stand and what to expect throughout their entire experience at NextBio no matter how long or short it is.

    I worked at NextBio as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a smart group of people providing a needed service for the research community. Management is friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    Some of the work is not very exciting. Better tools were needed when I was there, and hopefully those have since been implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire full time staff instead of contract workers. It's a better way to keep employees happy and retain good people.
