- 5.0Aug 7, 2023Business Development AssociateFormer Intern, less than 1 yearHouston, TX
I wanted to work for a company changing the world, and Cemvita offered me the opportunity.
Unfortunately, their business development team was fairly built out, so I was not offered a full-time position at the end of my internship.

They have a lot of different projects, and they focus a lot on unusual bacterial physiology (extremophiles, archaea, etc.), which gives opportunities to microbiologists who don't work with E. coli. Their pay schedule is very competitive with other companies.
Their projects have little to no overlap so they cannot easily share many resources. Sometimes it means they all need separate very expensive equipment. It also often means that projects are somewhat siloed and generally people on one project have no idea what's going on with other projects and there's very little communication with upper management to correct this or be more transparent. They undershot their Series B funding goal by about 80%. Because of this, they've been laying a lot of people off. Projects have to fight with each other for resources and personnel. It results in a very competitive and tense environment. There is a lot of infighting. And experiments are often rushed, poorly planned or communicated, and disorganized, leading to mistakes and having to repeat experiments.
