    Serious morale issues have developed recently

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Menlo Park, CA

    ProsGreat science. Was a tight-knit team until fairly recently.

    ConsA group of individuals who all worked together before has been hired in, and has a very rigid view of the world and how it should operate. They are not open to alternate opinions and do not seek out or listen to (when offered unsolicited) the input of those who are not members of the "inner circle"

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork hard to develop a culture that values input of all employees, and is willing to have more flexibility of thoughts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConsPoor business decisions, low stock value, very little reward for hard work, and poor communication from the top down.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
