    I worked at BioNano Genomics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers.
    Friendly work environment.
    Good fundamental technology (but poor execution).

    Cons

    Poor execution of core technology.
    Direction from upper management is not well focused.
    Middle management has problems executing, so they cut corners constantly at the expense of the product and customers.
    Lots of feuding among upper management.
    Very limited room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Set a clear, focused direction for the company and communicate that direction to your employees before the media does. Take time to truly understand the customers' needs (i.e., their scientific goals) and build a product around that.

    I have been working at BioNano Genomics full-time

    Pros

    There is a very welcoming atmosphere. It is a very "brainy" company. There are abundant opportunities to cross-train between Biology, Engineering, Informatics, etc. Benefits are very competitive.

    Cons

    The company faces obstacles to exemplary market performance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hustling.
