Smart, capable and accessible co-workers. The new headquarters is beautiful with stunning views of Lake Union and the Space Needle (though I wish there were more conference rooms). Decent work life balance and flexible work options for non-lab staff.
The company is not profitable and does not have a clear path to profitability. Recently, the company underwent a significant organizational restructuring where 12% of the workforce (100 employees) were laid off suddenly. Unless senior leadership learns to better manage costs, anyone hired this year will likely be a candidate for lay offs next year. The company has a lot of potential but senior leadership struggles with what to do with that potential and lacks decisiveness. It's not uncommon for senior leadership to make a strategic decision and then completely reverse that decision a few months later. Salaries are not competitive especially for Seattle. 401k match is low. Turnover is high.12

some people have work life balance, good for new grads to get some experience to start out their careers with but get paid little, new hires get stock options but.......(see 'Cons')
low salaries (Seattle is expensive!), difficult for minorities (non-white women) to get recognition/promotion, no career growth , bad work politics, executives continue to sell their stocks but no one is buying (what does that say about the future of this company), some managers play favoritism so you can move up the ladder if your manager like you (sounds fair?), senior management lacks transparency, most new people don't stay here long (less than 2 years) so very high employee turn-over rates, some managers will do whatever it takes to climb up the ladder and don't care about their direct reports (or maybe pretend to care sometimes)8
