Not very fulfilling.

Scientist (Former Employee)
Columbia, MD

I worked at Martek Biosciences full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt's a job with a pay check.
They have lots of money to spend on equipment.
New ownership may improve things.

ConsToo many chiefs.
Goals change every 3 months.
Ulterior motives by those looking to get a corner office.
Not team oriented, promotion driven workforce.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on results rather than individual accomplishments.
If goals are constantly changing then they aren't being set right to begin with.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Martek is an excellent company with great products.

I have been working at Martek Biosciences

ProsMartek provides the opportunity and resources for employees to do their best work. Upper management sets reasonable expectations and goals.

ConsSince DSM has taken over, the company has been slower to meet the research requirements for a growing company. However, it now seems that they are on the right track.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management must continue to develop a deep pipeline of new products. One opportunity is to look at other opportunities like medical foods.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
