    I worked at Zyomyx

    Pros

    Exciting product and mission, for the most part great collaborative and dedicated team to make a challenging program a reality. Fast paced company, everyone made a significant contribution.

    Cons

    Financing was a struggle. Underfunding made it hard to achieve not always realistic deadlines and stretched resources thin to the brink.
    Company shutdown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Next time, walk the talk and be more realistic about what can be done.

    I have been working at Zyomyx full-time

    Pros

    Good technology and good benefit

    Cons

    Discrimination and bully happened in the workplace. The management was so bad, that's why even the technology was very good but the company had to shut down.

    I worked at Zyomyx as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Casual work setting and friendly coworkers

    Cons

    a few bad seeds can ruin it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the guy at the top of manufacturing management should stay out of the business of the day to day and focus on whatever he does in his office.

    I worked at Zyomyx

    Pros

    Overall I was very satisfied with my job time at Zyomyx. The people were friendly and there was a spirit of team and cooperation. The company took risks with a challenging technology and gave meaningful opportunities to employees to have a voice in meetings. The team spirit i felt was exampled by the friday get togethers for an hour to meet and snack and enjoy get to know colleagues . I has a satifying experience and it much my biology degree to an exciting application at a nice time just after school.

    Cons

    Funding was often an issue and sad to say not many employees get to stay after a certain time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hang on
