    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at GeneDx full-time

    Pros

    It was a learning experience.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive. Unlimited pto just means you don't have leverage now when you want to take time off. It is likely your department is struggling to keep people from quitting so you're doing the work of two people. Expect pettiness at the highest levels. No annual performance reviews, no promotions, no bonuses, no climate surveys, nothing to indicate GeneDx cares about their employees.

    I have been working at GeneDx part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Flexible hours - Co-workers - Middle management

    Cons

    - PAY- not at all competitive for the market -The lower your salary, the more you will be micromanaged. - Lower payed employees often can only afford the lowest tier benefits package, which does not cover the very same genetic testing that they work on processing (i.e., they don't receive free testing from GeneDx) - Opko
