Pros

There's a feeling that you're in on the beginning of something that could be big, with a lot of potential.

Cons

Potential remains unrealized after many years. They have some income from contract manufacturing and patents, but no successful product or their own. Consistent failure to become profitable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Evaluate what the company is good at and build on it. Don't try to become the next big biotech sensation in a rented plant.

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    incredibly talented scientists and inventors. Everyone seems to be driven to achieve getting a product on the market, and everyone is really hard working. It's nice to be surrounded with people who have a good work ethic. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, there may not be a great deal of flexibility in relation to your schedule. Stock prices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more options for career advancement and promotions for your employees. Some managers need to recognize their employees more for "jobs well done."
