    I have been working at 10x Genomics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Brilliant coworkers who care about their work. - Growth environment, both for the organization as a whole, and individuals. - Focused on making real impact in scientific communities. - Interested only in quality work, have not seen decisions driven by politics, etc. - Compensation is good.

    Cons

    Can be a little bit hard to navigate the organization to onboard, but mostly due to the unprecedented time (started remotely during coronavirus lockdown).

    I have been working at 10x Genomics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The single cell expertise at this company is amazing. Culture is hard-working and collaborative. Leadership has routine town halls for updates and open dialogue. Reverse commute to Pleasanton. Great facilities with free lunch every other day. Plenty of opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    No 401k match, which is disappointing given that much lesser companies offer this. Company-sponsored paid parental leave would also be in line with leading employers in the region.

    Pros

    Leaders in the Single Cell Sequencing technology, great people, great work environment, great benefits. Very optimistic future

    Cons

    Very fast paced innovation, can be good or bad, depends on how you cope. Current stock price is already very high for new employees, but then the company expects it to grow 10x...

    I worked at 10x Genomics full-time

    Pros

    + Stock options. + Easy commute. + Celebrations and free food. + Friendship via survival.

    Cons

    - Toxic work environment because the CEO is a scientist, not a leader. - Very low level of respect between employees; no respect between employees and management. - They have the resources to protect employees and the environment, but they don’t because regulatory oversight is minimal. - At-will employment means you can be terminated for any reason, so you may have to buy the stock options in which you have been vested. - Social Darwinism. If management/leadership don’t like you, they will indirectly show it and push you out. - Passive-aggression is common. - Unqualified personnel move up quickly if they keep quiet and/or enable poor behavior.

    Pros

    Good pay Growing company Some good people

    Cons

    Dirty politics, harrasment, blame games were part of the culture in my team. I even complained to the management but nothing was done and inturn they targetted me back. Hope higher management listens to lower level employees than just goine with made up stories from middle management. I am so glad I am out of this company and very happy where I am at right now being back to normal working environment and away from this toxic/hostile environment. My advice to new applicants: You deserve much better than working in this hostile environment
