Pros

Sr Management respects employees and encourages a work/life balance. The products and services offered by Asuragen are top notch. Employees are incredibly talented and driven. The president is incredibly involved with the operation, and has a good handle on how things are running.

Cons

Some if not most of the departments are short staffed, and to be a truly successful company, Asuragen needs to hire more personnel.

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

    Pros

    The people / team of people at Asuragen are a great group, dedicated, hardworking, engaged, friendly and helpful. Management is accessible and make an effort to implement business and employee friendly policies and decisions

    Cons

    As the sayings go, keep it simple stupid and if it ain't broke don't fix it. The strong knowledge base of the employees can and is stymied at times by the implementation of 'the next great thing'. There is a tendency towards constant innovation, which is not always driven by best practices / research and is instead seems more driven by the desire to change things. More trust in what employee's are saying are the best ideas or what is most useful / needed, and less belief that this 'new idea' will revolutionize or improve the business / culture. Needless and frequent changes and overbearing policies create an sense of distrust and instability and in turn lowers productivity and an employee's sense of security.

    Advice to Management

    Clear communication is necessary, which is often done, but not always. Input from employees about issues that directly affect them should have the highest priority when making decisions, rather then dependence on the greatest ' new idea'; meaning there should be a preponderance of evidence / reasons for implementing the 'new idea' over voiced objections. Streamlining meetings, or making them much more regular and thus predictable (if company wide meetings or trainings occur, only on Fri mornings, meeting free Tuesdays to allow for uninterrupted work days).

    I worked at Asuragen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. Learn a lot of things and challenging work.

    Cons

    You're responsible for your own career progression and finding the places and teams that are doing the stuff you want to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Make more employee friendly policies, I know you guys have started in this direction but there is a long way to go still.
