    I have been working at Solazyme full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Scale up actually works & future capacity expansion on target as promised

    Cons

    The initial optimism of solving global challenges quickly fades as you realize its all marketing with little independence or transparency to useful data

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should apply this awesome technology toward systemic solutions for generations to come, instead of actively participating in a colossal waste of energy to sell superficial and ultimately empty cosmetics, cheaper chemicals, and food with a long shelf-life.
