    Pros

    Used to be a familiar business where the owner created the company with his study peers. Most of them have gone as Harry has become too greedy.

    Cons

    People rotates too frequently.
    There is no stability.
    Salaries are below industry average.
    New hires have commented that during the interview more responsibilities are added and even lane night shifts added.

    Don't just buy the industry, investigate it and make Compugen as good as it was when it was at Leek Crescent.
