    I have been working at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salary bc u work nonstop. Benefits are acceptable. We had new management that was awesome but they all were let go.

    Cons

    Blame game and unexperienced employees. All new management who were positive left bc the negative management outnumbered them. The more you work the and try the more they find fault.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within and promote the hard workers who care. Stop promoting your best friends and promoting a narcissistic environment. Pretty soon you won't have anyone working for you. There will be no Diosynth!

    I have been working at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Medical benefits are pretty good. Great paid holiday schedule. There are plenty of nice, intelligent people employed here. Sometimes you may get free lunch.

    Cons

    No room for career advancement or promotion. Depending on your department, reviews are skewed and based off what senior management thinks you deserve (a popularity contest not focused on work performance). Evaluation by your peers and immediate manager are promptly thrown out at calibration.

    Advice to Management

    Upper/senior management need training on how to manage/direct. Do away with calibrations and take the word of direct mangers on employee performance. Send employees to training. Encourage growth and exceptional performance within your department instead of rewarding mediocrity and doing ones job.

    I have been working at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Positive benefit package, Good 401K and health benefits package. Addition of fitness and life balance programs are a plus. Building a campus environment should be a good move.

    Cons

    The new food service is nice but the prices are a bit high and will not entice the employees to utilize it as much as if they were slightly subsidized.

    I have been working at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent place to get experience and learn the corporate world.

    Cons

    Management is pretty awful and only looks out for themselves. They always talk about making changes or breaking down silos to make the place more encompassing, but management never EVER carries through with these changes and continues to have the same attitudes and opinions toward policies, people, and other departments. You can learn and maybe get some opportunities, but it depends on what department you work, your...

    I have been working at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, able to pursue my own projects, my immediate boss treats me well and with respect

    Cons

    Managers are all pretty much awful with people and don't really care to keep up with people. A culture of good ol' boys that are or of touch with reality. Hard work gets minimal rewards and improving technology gets scoffed at. People don't seem to be interested in the work or improving themselves or the company. The complacency is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to interact with people and reward the talent.

    Pros

    There are many learning opportunities, management is not going to help you find them but if you are proactive, take part in them.

    Cons

    The company is barely profitable even 5+ years after acquisition by FujiFilm. They are oversold start-up companies who are also filled with incompetent management. Promotion only occurs through an entitlement program. The company at all three sites suffers from so many deviations and failures that I would take my business elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Tokyo should sell off the business of contract manufacturing.

    Pros

    I love the opportunities to train and gain skill sets... Great place to build your resume for future employers...

    Cons

    Upward mobility is going to be extremely limited.. Wish movement between department's were more fluid. Seems as the company could benefit from this tactic...

    Advice to Management

    No Advice....
