    Current Employee - Scientist in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at Wildcat Discovery Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You can learn new things while working on different company projects.

    Cons

    High pressure environment (as usual for startup)! Company generates some IP in partnering with big companies and provide service. The business model does not allow it to grow beyond certain point! Looks like it is saturated!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Go beyond high throughput testing and generate products!
    - Going fast does not help! Need to think about product and strategy to enter the market!

    Company is growing. Taleneted engineering & scientific team.

    Cons

    Management tries to extract more from emloyees, but returns less salary, bonus or stock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to recongize employee contribution.

    I worked at Wildcat Discovery Technologies full-time

    Pros

    _You get to work with amazing scientific minds
    _You help develop truly cutting edge battery technologies
    _There is always a wide variety of projects which keeps the science interesting and helps you grow
    _Employees on the scientific and engineering side are friendly
    _Opportunities to get name on patents
    _Company has a hot reputation in the battery field. Good company to work for if you are a scientist trying to make a name for yourself in the field.

    Cons

    _Employee management in this company is disorganized
    _Keep extracting more and more work out of employees without reciprocating in bonuses or increase in salary
    _Not much future if you do not have a PhD or are not in management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to work the employees as hard as you do, reciprocate in some way. Company morale would greatly improve if there was some financial incentive for the amount of hours and work put in.
