Pros

Passionate Billionaire shines brightly, nice new digs.

Cons

No infrastructure below owner to catch mere mortals.
Too many companies trying to come together feeding off the center for funding and attention with little if any revenue goals or plans of how to create synergies amongst themselves.
A general state of confusion and insecurity prevails amongst management and staff.

Advice to Management

Act like management, enact basic business practice as an organization, communicate a thoughtful plan, support and enable leaders to achieve a shared direction.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at NantWorks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location and opportunities in certain groups

    Cons

    Minimal to nil communication between management and employees. Negative employee feedback is looked as not being a team player. Negative feed back to employee from supervisor is done in the ofrm of termination. There is never any warning. Decisions made and carried out by decree. They love you as you arrive and your are chewed up and spot out when they are done.
    This is usually done on the last day of the month so you have zero benefits.

    Advice to Management

    TALK to your employees.

    Pros

    Strong funding, wonderful vision of a highly-driven owner, LA Billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong. Vision is of a vast portfolio of portable digital eMedicine solutions to enable many 21st century opportunities for technology to empower a revolution in patient-centric healthcare.

    Cons

    Eccentric, unpredictable, irregular, quixotic, overly centralized, resulting in damage to lateral leadership teamwork, and inconsistent and undeveloped business culture. Beware of easy first investment, then slow strangle, then swift slaughter.

    Advice to Management

    After turbulent 2011, settle down and keep a steady and strong investment policy in the constituent companies. Support and empower your senior leadership, that is a huge step to building the new organization. Don't be so suspicious. Most of the scientists and leaders are working round-the-clock and totally dedicated and deeply and genuinely devoted. So don't spit them on, rather give them sturdy budgets and empower them to make decisions on how that is deployed, for the swift advance of the enterprise. Best wishes.
