Current Employee - Research Scientist in Wilmington, DE
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Does not demand very many hours per week if not in management. Many research projects are intellectually stimulating. Many great colleagues.

Cons

Uncompetitive pay and benefits. Uncompetitive compared with more agile and focused competitors. VERY slow to execute. Can be stifling environment for true innovators and entrepreneurial types.

Advice to Management

Make a commitment to be the best again. Go back to the culture of the heyday years. Let the scientists run wild. Put them at the center. Be more like Google or Amyris.
