    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Algenol Biofuels full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Smart, driven colleagues who are passionate about their work - Most employees re-located to the area to work at Algenol, so there is a strong friendship community at work - Not a lot of bureaucracy/red tape - easy to get answers quickly - Generous salary/benefits - Necessary resources (personnel, equipment) are always made available. - Corporate efforts are made to foster positive culture - The potential of... this company is extraordinary

    Cons

    - Because the company is a private R&D company, there is no revenue and the operating budget is dependent upon fundraising. While the company has always been successful in this regard, it can be unsettling to not know from year to year how this is going to work out. - Some Managers are strong and some are weak; the employee experience with Management is inconsistent depending on which dept you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate all the way down the chain. Sometimes communication seems to stop at the Director level.

    Pros

    some managers are great and work hard.

    Cons

    The company will be lucky to be open in 6months with how it’s being executively managed. The single investor they have is an unstable emotional wreck who changes his mind about how much money he’s offering and who will be employed every week. They are laying people off because of “money issues” yet the investor turned CEO is offering to higher outside people or give more money to select few people staying.. They are... paying for an exec member to fly back and forth from NC every week and paying for their accommodations here during the week. There’s no chance of career development, no bonuses or inflation increases in 4+ years. Plus Fort Myers is not a great area to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! You’re losing really great people and the ones left are way overburdened.
