      I worked at Counsyl full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      the people WERE great, but the great people have left or will leave

      Cons

      everything changed once acquired by Myriad. Myriad lied about their experience in integration and had zero respect for what made Counsyl successful, they have zero interest in open feedback and retaliate against those that give open feedback.

        I worked at Counsyl full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Lots of different projects to work on. Ability to contribute in a meaningful way if you wanted to contribute.

        Cons

        Limited business resources. Lack of engagement with business processes - too many people on computers during meetings. Many spectators but little useful action sometimes.

        Pros

        Great coworkers. Everyone is very supportive of each other. Free catered lunches and salad bar daily. Free snacks, drinks, and breakfast foods available all the time. We have a beer fridge and cold brew coffee on tap. Matching 401K (4%). This company used to have a very strong culture and happy employees. However, since the acquisition by Myriad Genetics in August 2018, the future of the company remains unclear...

        Advice to Management
