    I have been working at IMDx full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people at the sub-executive level - most are highly talented and motivated. Some new additions to the executive management over the past couple years have made great improvements to the company culture and working conditions/expectations.

    Cons

    Definite improvement has been made at the executive level in some cases, however the long-time executives remain a roadblock to a good working environment and impede progress and the otherwise top-notch performance from the rest of the company. As you'll find in most companies, some employees take advantage of the system by not contributing their fair share of the workload.

    Pros

    Very little. The people I worked with were terrific. The Management team turned over often, but the team was great.

    Cons

    I can't believe this company just vanished off the face of the earth. The CEO always promised huge success and now they closed their doors and skipped out on their lease. I can't believe they just left people hanging.

    Advice to Management

    Alice Jacobs should be honest with her employees and investors. All she's done is lied and cheated people.

    Pros

    Salary was competitive, employees were knowledgeable and hard working. Benefits for a start up were very competitive. There was not trust between employees and Executive Management.

    Cons

    Executive Management was extremely difficult to work with, turn over was very high and moral very low. Decisions at the executive level were made in a vacuum and changed often.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employees, treat them fairly.

    Pros

    If you are unemployed,definitely apply because they seem to hire most people who walk through the door.They pay higher than the market value.

    Cons

    This job may not last long enough for you to put on your resume.The turnover rate is very high especially for people who work in the lab.
    The software people are treated like they are a class above others while most of the software is based on a third party software for thermodynamics.
    The higher management act like a bunch of kids where each is trying to vie for the CEO's attention.

    Advice to Management

    Trust people,Be open and get out of your office and talk to the employees!

    Pros

    What the company does sounds honorable, promising, forward thinking. If you like technology and want to save lives, you might get sold on the idea. They will pay you a good market rate.

    Cons

    If you're technically skilled, you will probably be working in an isolated vacuum. The management sets expectations, but has little to no understanding of how they are met. Everyone works in their own little bubble, there is very little for real collaboration or team spirit.

    Turnover is really high for this, and other reasons.

    There are a few long-term employees who are comfortable with the setup, keep their heads down and churn along.

    If you really want to work with breakthrough technologies in the biomedical field and feel rewarded emotionally as well, go work somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Management has hired and fired all sorts of good, talented folks. Good managers themselves have been hired and fired too. There is no HBS graduate that could analyze their way out of this mess without completely removing the current leadership.

    I worked at IMDx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people that worked at IMDx were some of the most talented and hard working individuals I ever had the privilage of working with. A collabrative enviorment spawned great success and it was truely a pleasure to go to work each day. The new location in Waltham was fantastic and the building was well designed and open.

    Cons

    The most obvious con is decision making that led to IMDx closing it's doors which was just as hard on the CEO as it was for the 40+ employees. The MGMT team had gifted people but perhaps a true bussiness person should have been on staff. The next partner should have been on board and funding us before trying new things

    Advice to Management

    To most of the MGMT team I would work for/with any of you in a heartbeat as i truely believed in the company mission. I would say from my perspective to lock down the business that keeps the lights on before chasing your dreams for the future of the company.

    Pros

    The people at IMDx have made this company what it is. Staff are ready and willing to work as a team to ensure success, either in the development of products, or in the manufacture and ensuring quality of the product. All staff repeatedly state that it is the great people at the company that have contributed to the company.

    Cons

    Poor management and communication from senior executives. Good health initiatives, yoga and fresh fruit brought in twice a week. Bagels on Fridays. Efforts in past year to improve communication and company culture
