There may be some speed bumps, but nothing is going to stop this company.

ProsIf you are into being "Green", you would love working for Verenium. The attitude and drive to make Cellulosic Ethanol and free us from foreign oil is incredible. This is a new technology and has plenty of challenges, but the mindset of management, the employees and even the partners we work with is not just "we can do it", but that "we will do it." The best part is that they have committed to doing everything safely and in a way that not only doesn't hurt the environment, but actually helps the environment. I couldn't be more proud to work for a company.

ConsWorking in an industry that is new makes each day a challenge. This is a positive thing most of the time, but can be draining once in a while. The saying, "the only thing that doesn't change is change itself" has never been more true that here. Working here definitely keeps you on your toes.

Advice to Senior ManagementSetting goals and deadlines is a good thing, but if they are always overly optimistic and can barely ever be met on time, moral suffers. Be aggressive, set goals, but be realistic and make sure they are achievable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
