Pros

The impact to the practice of medicine and the focus on the benefit to the patient. There are many dedicated, driven and passionate professionals that are focused on advancing the diagnosis of treatment. Overall in the working ranks of the company, there is a good level of professional respect. There is definitely a feeling of an up and coming company that is poised for great growth. With the acquisition by Roche, Ventana should be able to leverage Roche's reputation and commitment to science to increase their product offering. I think that Chris Gleeson's personality and leadership are big plus for Ventana.

Cons

While I was there the Sales departments where the leaders of the organization. This was troubling for the R&D department's commitment to deliver science that delivered clinical benefit. The sales sole focus on the quarter's numbers dominated all decisions and lead to short-sighted gains at the expense of long term strategy. The sales force were very aware of the position in the company and frequently "threw their weight around". Interdepartmental effectiveness was limited due their compensation being tied to competing factors that were not strategically aligned. Their were a lot of pet projects that received the departments first attention instead the projects that were consistent with the strategy of the company.

Advice to Management

Ensure that everyone is aligned with the strategic goals
