    Pros

    high level of intellect amongst employees, independent work environment, minimal meetings, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    large territories, gossipy management, not a good environment for working moms, too many reports

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reps talk to each other, even once they leave the company, so be careful talking behind people's backs. Don't discriminate against working moms or moms-to-be.

    Changes Coming - New CEO is Here (Lisa A Miller)

    Pros

    The new CEO started last year and is looking to push more responsibility at the Executive and upper management levels which is sorely needed. In addition, the home company is pushing the project management systems that make sense.

    My hope is that these changes will improve the culture and send the company in the right direction. I am hopeful.

    With all the changes, there will be opportunities to learn and contribute.

    Cons

    Headcount is tight so anyone working in the busier departments can expect pressure. Previously company objectives were set without any assessment of the bodies needed to ro complete it on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent with what you say you are going to do.

    May have good things in the pipeline.
    Have some great employees, although a lot are leaving!!

    Company is in the second year of not making goal, because they are unrealistic and do not understand the healthcare environment.

    Reduce cost of tests, get realistic goals, and care about your employees and patients.

    Searching for the common goal

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Location.
    Benefits continually upgraded based on employee input.
    Flexible work hours and generous overtime policy.

    Cons

    The lack of a company wide feeling of working towards a common goal. There is no mission statement, at least that can be easily found. Many employees seem to be there just putting in their time to get paid. I don't see a lot of enthusiasm or excitement about being a Prometheus employee.
    The company is growing and getting more people hired to cope with increased workload doesn't seem to be keeping up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To work together more cohesively as a team since there's a perception that two-way communicating isn't happening.

    Unprofessional, ruthless for the most part. The good people don't last there.

    Pros

    There are some very talented, seasoned professionals onboard. Unforunately, they don't stay around very long. The executive leadership changes often, making the entire organization unstable. On the positive side, a brilliant group of scientists are onboard, and with the recent acquisition by Hershey, great things are sure to come.

    Cons

    As with many companies these days, there just isn't tme or money to invest in employee development, conitnued education and career growth. That is very much the case here, making this company, for many people, a dead end job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest time, effort and resources into the employees to build a stronger company from the roots and up. Efforts put forth to develop the team will pay off and build an organization of inspired team players.
