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

    Pros

    Genocea management from lower to higher truly cares about their employees. Major restructuring last year resulted in no job losses, an impressive feat for a small focused company. True excitement in the organization about the potential for the future. So many opportunities to grow within individuals roles and the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Leaving employees lack professionalism and air too many grievances, most of which are the result of lack of experience and maturity about the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to voice enthusiasm and build an effective and cohesive team. Make sure voices are heard, new employees bring a wealth of industry experience which will ensure we succeed !

    I have been working at Genocea Biosciences full-time

    Pros

    CSO is a world champion scientist

    Cons

    Terrible mid managers
    Too many directors and vice presidents-head heavy
    Horrible HR; Should get an award for "company with highest employee turnover rate in Boston" and HR doesn't care
    ~50 people left in the last 6 months including 2 VPs, 3 directors and whole clinical team, never a good sign.
    Small lab spaces
    poor pipeline and very low on cash

    Advice to Management

    Change should come from the top
