    Pros

    A strong culture of accountability and ownership exists at Ventana Medical Systems. Speaking up and making suggestions are encouraged and rewarded. With the recent acquisition by Roche there was some anxiousness about what the future would hold for us, but almost a year latter is seems apparent that Roche likes what we do and is taking a more hands off approach to our business. I have regular and frequent access to my manager and can express concerns or ask questions as they arise.

    Combined with all this, the other people I work with enjoy being there too, so I look forward to going to work each day.

    Cons

    I have no major complaints with working at Ventana. The compensation package is fair and the environment is great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open communication and transparency with all growth that is/will be happening in the coming years.

    Pros

    The impact to the practice of medicine and the focus on the benefit to the patient. There are many dedicated, driven and passionate professionals that are focused on advancing the diagnosis of treatment. Overall in the working ranks of the company, there is a good level of professional respect. There is definitely a feeling of an up and coming company that is poised for great growth. With the acquisition by Roche, Ventana should be able to leverage Roche's reputation and commitment to science to increase their product offering. I think that Chris Gleeson's personality and leadership are big plus for Ventana.

    Cons

    While I was there the Sales departments where the leaders of the organization. This was troubling for the R&D department's commitment to deliver science that delivered clinical benefit. The sales sole focus on the quarter's numbers dominated all decisions and lead to short-sighted gains at the expense of long term strategy. The sales force were very aware of the position in the company and frequently "threw their weight around". Interdepartmental effectiveness was limited due their compensation being tied to competing factors that were not strategically aligned. Their were a lot of pet projects that received the departments first attention instead the projects that were consistent with the strategy of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that everyone is aligned with the strategic goals
