    I have been working at Elysium Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Elysium's been a fascinating place to work. The company's mission (to help people live healthier, for longer) is a daily inspiration and everyone on the team from the CEO on down is incredibly smart and passionate. Because the company is small, you're free to contribute in all areas of the business – there's really no dumb ideas.

    Cons

    None really. There's some long hours here and there, but everyone's striving towards the same vision and it's actually quite rewarding to see your efforts make an impact.

    I have been working at Elysium Health full-time

    Pros

    Coming to Elysium has been such a welcome career move. I'm relatively new and have had a very positive experience thus far, beginning with the hiring process which was very transparent throughout. Learning more about the company and meeting employees moved me from skeptical to fully committed to the opportunity. Now that I'm here I know this was the right decision. Everyone is very mission-driven and the culture is somehow relaxed yet serious at the same time. Such a positive change for me after working in a few stuffy and restrictive environments. To address something I saw in another review, I don't feel it is a toxic boys club and that's coming from a woman used to working with probably 90% women. Maybe there's been more of an effort to recruit women since then. Overall I'm thrilled and loving it.

    Cons

    Expectations for some roles could be clearer, which might just be par for the course with brand new positions at a startup.

    I have been working at Elysium Health full-time

    Pros

    Mission-driven and science-focused company that is dedicated to translating the latest scientific developments in healthcare to effective consumer products. The leadership team are incredible, highly talented individuals that bring so much experience and expertise to enable the company to grow. All staff are super-friendly and willing to get stuck into new challenges outside their comfort zones. Also most employees have a science background, and there is genuine interest and passion about the latest scientific developments within human health. The CEO and COO have big ambitions for the company, which is very inspiring! They also recognize hard work, which is rewarded with promotions and the opportunity to move up the ranks. Also some great perks, like wellness reimbursements (gym, etc) and good healthcare coverage.

    Cons

    Honestly find it difficult to identify any cons - hours can be a little long at times, so if you are looking for a strict 9 to 5 this is probably not for you.

    I worked at Elysium Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a learning experience.

    Cons

    Certain members of the team at Elysium have led to the development of a toxic culture. There is very much a boys' club and if you are not part of that, good luck to you. You will be forced to work long hours, late nights and weekends are expected.

    I worked at Elysium Health full-time

    Pros

    I loved every second at Elysium. My husband was relocated to L.A. and I tried the remote thing for a few months, but I felt like I was holding back the organization. Very accommodating, lovely people, and I think I am a better person for working at Elysium.

    Cons

    I can not think of one. They put up with my move and working remote. Great people doing great things.

    - Small team doing incredible things to impact human lives
    - No idea or goal is too grand

    I have been working at Elysium Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's rare that personal passions are a central part of your work life, but that's not true at Elysium Health. I am so fulfilled by and excited about the work that the company is doing for human health that I always look forward to going to work. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to tackle these challenges.

    Cons

    It's a common pitfall of work that you have to prioritize tasks and projects and be okay with leaving things undone or in-progress as part of the day-to-day, but that is especially hard at Elysium Health. The work is so important that you always want to be doing more and never leave anything to wait.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay grounded in your mission.
