    Exciting culture with a side of growing pains

    Pros

    You do interesting work.
    There are many opportunities to grow and learn.
    Mathematics ("Network Biology") is used in some innovative ways at the company.

    Cons

    While I was with Merrimack there seemed to be some growing pains. The company is undergoing growth (great), but is not yet sure how to be bigger than 200 or so people (less great).

    Work/life balance could use some improvement as people are often stretched thin. I heard more than once that "everything is a priority." That's not conducive to work being an enjoyable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kill the "everything is a priority" culture.
