    Pros

    like title says manager was responsive some of my coworkers were very helpful compensation wasn't bad

    Cons

    because I was in the field as opposed to be being at headquarters, it not easy to get news of the latest development or easily answer customer complaints that are not in my control

    Just another late pase zombie startup now

    Aug 23, 2018 - Senior Manager in San Diego, CA
    Recommend

    Pros

    Flexible hours and dress code Decent pay and benefits Some very smart co-workers A few very cool people These are all good things, but you can find them at any startup

    Cons

    Career advancement opportunities only arise when the company is worried about retention (every other yr adjacent to a layoff/money crunch) Toxic executive team. "manage up" dominates mid management decisions due to executive rivalry. Executives do not delegate well, engage randomly, heavily on projects, marginalize worker skills and efforts. Bad news heavily frowned upon (especially when true). Go/no-go meetings pointless, strong preference to abandoned after launch vs no-go in case of failed dev projects. Most finish lines limped across after over-spending on deliverables that are too late or insufficient for market to care about. BioNano technology can now sort of do what BioNano said it would do years ago, but competing companies have caught up with products customers prefer (better performance and experience). Money mostly spent (on dev) to cover up flaws BioNano is afraid it can’t properly solve (perceived as disruptive advancement by BioNano). BioNano is 10yrs old with 50ppl in dev and 0ppl in marketing…. Company fixated on core tech being stand alone tool but can't figure out how to be meaningful on it's own. Useful when used with others, but BioNano can't accept this and misses out. Many startups also fail to execute during window of opportunity but maintain ability to raise money and turn into zombie companies like BioNano. If you are a serial startup type, it's not a bad place to be for a couple years before moving on to the next one.

    Pros

    The company offers a lot of opportunities for growth and learning. Tasks are provided with enough direction yet enough room for growth. I have only been working here for a week and I have learned so much, not only in my department, but about the business world in general. Employees are very welcoming and the environment and culture of the company is very positive.

    Cons

    I have no cons for this company.
