    Great Science Below Average Executive Management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat exciting work in cutting edge science. Free coffee and plenty of snacks stocked all the time. Company Gatherings each season. Employees are passionate. Everybody is friendly and helpful. Benefits are strong perk

    ConsCompany focus changes radically. CEO changes radically. Can feel very unstable at times. Promotions are few and far between. Lacking direction at times

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of current employees. Provide better direction

    Great Technology, unfortunate economic externalities.

    Scientist (Former Employee) South San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood working environment with plenty of resources, high quality instrumentation, and a past-paced atmosphere. Management worked closely with technical staff to lay out expectations and goals. Good communication from business development side. Promising technology.

    ConsWas having growing pains moving from small R&D shop to larger integrated matrix project structure.

    Good Opportunities to Work on High Impact Technology

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) South San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe Company is very motivated and has a serious commitment on commercialization of their sustainable chemicals pipeline. Has a good sense of community and values employee satisfaction. The IP position is strong and upper management is knowledgeable.

    ConsLS9 the matrix project structure was still in development, but in its early stages seemed to lack backing and buy-in from everybody, including competency group leaders.

    Very exciteing place to work but has all the downsides of a start up company

    Scientist (Current Employee) South San Francisco, CA

    ProsFun and dynamic place to work. Very cool coworkers always ready to help.

    ConsIt is a start up company so they don't match the 401K plan. No sick days. Only 3 weeks of PTO. Very crowded.

    Great smart people, lack of vision

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople are super smart and motivated. Colleagues are great to work with. Lots of little perks, such as free snacks, coffee, fun parties. Good equipment and quick to bring on board new technology.

    ConsLack of focus and vision by management makes company slow to adapt to changing conditions. Rewards to high performers are not clear. Company very slow to cut work that is not delivering results.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
