    I worked at Crescendo Bioscience full-time

    Pros

    One of the best places I have worked for, very professional people, lack of politics, exemplary leadership by CEO and the leadership team. Very approachable.

    Cons

    Other than the commute with the Bay Area traffic for folks in the East Bay and South Bay, no other negatives.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Crescendo Bioscience full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits were great, the pay was okay.

    Cons

    Terrible low-mid management and HR department. I have never, ever worked for less competent, mean-spirited people in my life. If you miss your middle school days, then this place might be right for you. The billing group is "managed" by Myriad and are so far removed from what went on in our little corner (on a different floor, different building) that they should be grateful lawsuits were not brought on. I would hate to see an outside audit of claims...

    I worked at Crescendo Bioscience full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good management, good company culture, free food.

    Cons

    I don't really have much to say. I guess the only thing missing is more food options around there.

    I worked at Crescendo Bioscience

    Pros

    Great people. Great mission. Leadership is responsive to employee concerns. Good training for people in leadership positions. Note that reviews prior to Jan 2015 reflect another management regime and style.

    Cons

    It's not perfect - some departments are more happy than others but I think the new leadership is doing the right things to rectify all the challenges.
