Pros

Competitive compensation. Good health/vision/dental/401K options (and more) for you and your family, plus life insurance provided by the company at no charge. Free meals served 3x per week, 7 days a week. Unlimited snack bars all the time and always very stocked. Can call security if you want take-out in the middle of the night. Fast-paced, highly productive, upbeat attitude throughout. Very personal because it's a startup. Can see the company growing each week, which is highly encouraging.

Cons

Hours can be long, but that's the story with any lab position. It goes by so quickly, I hardly ever notice. It's still a startup, which means there can be lack of organization. However, there are so many bright minds that the issue is noticed and resolved as quickly as it came up. It's exciting to watch things fall into place and be a part of the company solidifying.

Advice to Management

None that I can think of. I'm very excited about the future of this company. It is headed in a good directions because upper management has such good motives.

    Pros

    Not a lot to really say other than a pay check. Mu co workers are great, but here only because they need their job.

    Cons

    No priorities. No decisions. No clear communication of where we are going. HR department is a mess. No support to hire open requisitions / resources.

    Advice to Management

    BOD needs to replace all founders and executive management!
