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

    Pros

    -Company mission is great for anyone who is looking to make a difference
    -Great learning opportunity
    -Personal and professional development
    -Introduction to industry
    -Strong scientific advisory
    -Freedom to innovate and champion ideas

    -Compensation/Health and Wellness benefits
    -Work/life balance
    -Flexibility in work hours
    -Incredibly talented, accomplished and friendly colleagues- there is so much to learn from everyone around you
    -Coffee/snacks
    -Convenient location - public transportation nearby

    Cons

    Less of a "Con" but a difference from other companies:

    The company is smaller so roles are not completely defined- dealing with ambiguity and being able to shift gears on a dime are a must. If you like a routine schedule and knowing exactly what project/task you will be working on day to day basis then you might go through an adjustment period

    Pros

    Elysium Health has an INCREDIBLE culture. I really appreciate transparency from different teams, and I always feel as though I am in the know (to the extent that I could be). Everyone is always willing to help, and I never feel discouraged asking questions. Elysium Health is a company that truly cares about their employees.

    Cons

    None I could think of!

    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.

    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.
