    The Promised Land

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsScale up actually works & future capacity expansion on target as promised

    ConsThe initial optimism of solving global challenges quickly fades as you realize its all marketing with little independence or transparency to useful data

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should apply this awesome technology toward systemic solutions for generations to come, instead of actively participating in a colossal waste of energy to sell superficial and ultimately empty cosmetics, cheaper chemicals, and food with a long shelf-life.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
