    Pros

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

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Prometheus Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Prometheus Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Company is in the second year of not making goal, because they are unrealistic and do not understand the healthcare environment. Have over priced good tests, so it is not available to a lot of patients and has reduced clinical utility because of high costs. No manage care leverage with products. Do not care about employees. No strategic plan.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce cost of tests, get realistic goals, and care about your employees and patients. Get a good direction and stick to it, feels like upper management has not plan.
