The team I work on gets along really well. They offer remote positions and will supply you with your computer, etc.
They do not pay their employees nearly enough to live in this financial climate, yet boast about record profit/revenue at every meeting. Currently $320 million in revenue for the company but most employees are paid less than $22/hour. The CEO and higher ups blatantly disregard employees attempts to ask about better pay at Town Hall meetings. They roll their eyes and basically tell us if moral is low "there's the door." They do not provide acceptable annual raises to make up for inflation. They conduct lay-offs and then the next meeting are about "making processes more efficient" and how to get more work out of less employees. The insurance packages they provide are not competitive compared to most other companies. They only work with UHC insurance which horrible. PTO accrual rate is not competitvie, and does not change until you've been at the company 5 years or more, yet some of the staff was grandfathered in at a way higher PTO rate and accrue much more pto than other employees, although they've only been there 6-8 months longer.12

Work from home…unless you’re traveling for work
Bad pay, no diversity in science department, no clear goal for company, “family” culture. No clear defined metrics, HR not around1

PTO, remote for most positions and benefits. Within my department it was great working with my peers...minus anyone above managers.
I miss the old ambry before it became a place run by a sales mindset. The CEO is a joke and so are most of the VPs of most departments. No wonder so many people have left and you might have actually done many of the people you laid off last year a favor. Many have found great opportunities with companies that actually value their hard work. C levels and Directors are so disconnected with their teams that it's mind-boggling. It sad to see how much this company has fallen and completely turned. There was a time where employees actually were proud of saying they worked for Ambry but now not so much! If you are looking to develop your career in any field, this is not a place for you.14

Ambry is great, they help patients with a cancer diagnosis or those who are at risk to get cancer with a lot of family members diagnosed. It tests for many other diseases, which makes you feel proud that you are working for a company that changes the world and helps those in need.
Managers and executives boast about high numbers in revenues and cost cutting techniques, yet it seems staff doesn’t get raises and are told to look elsewhere if they do not feel they are being fairly compensated. The CEO is very disconnected and they way he talks to staff, is not how leaders behave. There is very little room for growth, and only when someone leaves for a better company is there a chance for advancement.8

Some coworkers are pleasant to engage with
- Unreasonable workloads, planned by executives you will never meet - Incredibly understaffed - you will need to work on weekends to try and keep up. Many employees work six or seven days a week and are still falling behind. - High stress environment - A lot of meetings - During my long career, I have never seen someone get fired or laid off at any of my previous employers, however it's a regular occurrence here. If you can't keep up with the unreasonable workload, your job is not safe. Many smart and hard-working employees are laid off at Ambry. If you value job security, do not work here.6

Employment? However, it's at the risk of layoffs constantly due to bad decisions from higher ups.
Beware. Unorganized. Chaotic. Irrational decision-making at every turn. People without skill set making rash detrimental decisions to save money (which half the time costs them more because they were bad decisions). Under CEO Tom, the company has been run into the ground. Salesman Tom and everyone hired under his direction have destroyed what used to be a innovative place that was patient and science driven.6
