Pros

They have many products to sell to the public and are doing financially o.k. There is flexibility with your work schedule depending on your boss and position. Monthly lunches.

Cons

Basically they hire people below what there really worth and it is very difficult to get Promoted or Recognized. They also hire a lot of young people (cheap pay). Many people don't care and just do their job half--- because there paid cheap! The building and used equipment always has PROBLEMS! Difficult to get I.T help!

Advice to Management

Invest in your People by paying them a "Competitive Wage". Promote more people and offer your Employees Incentives like Stock Options. Invest in new Equipment! Be approachable and friendly! Have an Anonymous Suggestion Box and an Open Door Policy!

    I have been working at eBioscience full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    eBioscience is a good company. The leaders are strong, and are very helpful. The company has gone through some changes, and through these changes the company is on the rise.

    Cons

    No real issues to report. As part of a larger company, there are always issues that come up and that are out of anyone's control, also being part of a larger company, it is hard to feel connected. The small company feel has faded.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the employees. The Focus Groups are a great idea, it allows employees to voice their opinions and concerns with the company. Great Job!

    Pros

    eBio is a great place to get your foot in the door. The work environment is very friendly and the company, since it's acquisition by Affymetrix, has pretty good benefits including occasional stock offers. They frequently budgets set aside for groups to just go out and do team building. The work environment is mostly laid back, but like all companies there tends to be moments of stress when critical projects need to be finished. The R&D department is also filled with many talented and knowledge people who are always approachable when you want to learn something.

    Cons

    The biggest con here is the pay. eBio ranks consistently with the lowest percentile of pay among the biotech companies in San Diego. The high amount of profit the company is producing for Affymetrix is not translating to increase nor normalize wages and thus is the biggest factor, beside worker dissatisfaction, in employee turnover. eBio knows this, but refuses to address the problem, leading to many people leaving for directly competing companies. Expect to see your yearly raises not keep up with inflation and a meager bonus that is taxed at an extremely high percentage. Your experience at eBio will also vary within departments. R&D tends to be a lot more laid back and allow workers to do the work they need to do without too much micromanagement. Manufacturing on the other hand has huge issues with communication. Often make decisions made are more reactionary than addressing issues at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your lowest level employees and enable them to excel in what they believe would help the group in doing their job. Get rid of supervisors that are incompetent. Find better ways/metrics to measure productivity other than telling people their numbers are too low. At the very least pay people a normal wage so that turnover isn't high. We'd almost get paid more bagging groceries than working at eBio.

    Thank you for your post. As with most companies, salaries are an active topic, and those same salary challenges continue to be an issue here as well. Because we value our employees, and because this ... More
