    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Cobalt Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Small biotech company with few employees, so each could wear may hats and get involved in range of roles within each project.

    Cons

    Garage chemistry. Bad equipment. Extremely unsafe conditions. No formal SOP review. Virtually no change control or QA/QC. Business side very opaque to scientists and engineers.

    Advice to Management

    See "cons". Fix all of them. Safety was awful. Overnight lab techs never had meetings with teams in pilot plant to talk about project and expectations.
