    Pros

    - Interesting field
    - Nice office

    Cons

    - Worst place to work for internationals, Don't even think about sponsorship
    - Some words that come to my mind when I think of CEO and management team : Abusive, immoral, inexperienced, rude.
    - There is no good engineer there anymore
    - No transparency in stocks
    - Salaries are not even comparable to other companies
    - All the good reviews are coming from HR and CEO

    Advice to Management

    You don't get anywhere by immorality and lies

    Pros

    some nice, smart people
    not much else, free lunches but pretty average benefits
    interesting field with lots of opportunities

    Cons

    very, very bad ceo who lies about lots of things like status of technology, size of company, and fundraising
    ceo screams and criticizes everyone even though he is unethical and incompetent
    no one is working together so progress is slow
    awful culture where everyone at fault except ceo and no one trust each other

    Advice to Management

    stop lying to employees and outside vendors. tell them the truth about where we are.
    treat employees better and get more leadership. what happened to all the promises at the retreat about new coo.

    Pros

    This company has a very interesting approach for a new revolutionary product. If all goes well, it's going to be REALLY BIG....And employees options will be worth a ton in the process. I like that a lot :-) I also like to program, work with fellow geeks, play ping pong with them during breaks, eat yummy food at lunch, and enjoy the casual dress code. I have worked in other start-ups before, and what sets Genapsys apart is the first thing I've talked about -- the enormous market opportunity...Cause at the end of the day, I'd love to retire when I'm still young and I believe these guys can help me do this

    Cons

    My other companies also offered free dinners, but I guess if you make me millions on options, I'm OK :-)

    Advice to Management

    Don't agree to be acquired unless it's Billions...Or may-be we just go IPO...

    Pros

    You will learn a lot at GenapSys, It's fun working there, you will work with super smart scientists and engineers.

    Cons

    Appreciation doesn't mean anything, and sometimes you don't understand what's going on in future.

    Pros

    GenapSys is one of those companies who has the opportunity to be a game-changer. Working there, you know you're working on one of the most cutting-edge products in the world that could change the way the world works - that makes it a very exciting place to be. Also the people are some of the smartest and most innovative I've had the chance to work with in my career - by getting into the company, you already have a huge stamp of intelligence, dedication, and passion... and that makes it fun and motivating as a workplace. Colleagues are not only super intelligent, but also very helpful and collaborative.

    Cons

    By nature of it being a very fast paced and fast-growing company, the dedication that is required is high - so work life balance isn't always there, but if you love what you do you'll never think of it as work.

    Advice to Management

    The opportunity in front of you is immense - go for it!
