    I have been working at LifeOmic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The organization is focused on changing how we think about healthcare, cybersecurity and wellness (and more to come). It's a clear and consistent vision. The transparency is refreshing, honest and motivating. There is always alignment on priorities. Also, the organization is dogmatic about not being dogmatic. People are genuine and speak with honesty, which means internal politics and jockeying doesn't exist. The focus is on getting things done. It's tremendous.

    Cons

    As with all startups, there is a lot going on. You can get pulled into multiple directions if you are not focused and organized every day. It's a reality but easily combatted if you stay focused on the goals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    - Private Offices
    - Great Equipment (5K thunderbolt monitor, fully-loaded macbook, Steelcase desk & chair)
    - Very nice office space
    - As a remote-first company (offices in Indianapolis, SLC, and Raleigh-Durham) the work from home policy is very flexible.

    - Great pay
    - Great stock options
    - The company is keen on leveraging the latest technologies.
    - The CEO, Don Brown, has had multiple successful exits, so I trust in his vision and leadership.

    Cons

    - Not necessarily a con, but working with geographically distributed teams can have it's challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in your efforts in making employees feel valued, because it's working.

    I have been working at LifeOmic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -First and foremost, the company cares about you (the employee), and it shows
    -Some of the smartest (but humble) people I have ever worked with
    -Work environment that challenges you to do/be your best - bring your A-game
    -Flexible working environment
    -Great workspace: the best tech and equipment, standing desks, snacks, great office location

    Cons

    -Startup nature challenges you to say "no" and focus on core products and value prop - not necessarily a bad thing, just stretches you if you are a "yes" person!

    Advice to Management

    The culture is amazing, work hard to guard against a drift away from it, as tends to happen with growth.

    I have been working at LifeOmic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Remote friendly, teams span across the country with locations in Indiana, Utah and North Carolina. Personal offices for every employee as a quiet space to concentrate, and avoid the open-floorplan distractions. Highly skilled peers and mentors that are humble and willing to help each other to push the envelope further. Access to brilliant scientists and engineers who are eager to share wisdom. Fully stocked refrigerator with healthy snacks and drinks. Interesting business market, ripe for innovative solutions and urgently important outcomes.

    Cons

    Haven't thought of anything specific yet, I am still fairly fresh into the team and glowing in the honey-moon phase. However, because of the nature of being in a start-up, and wanting to deliver awesome solutions quickly, some others may feel like they are not cut-out for the level of quality we are aiming for, and rather find a monolithic corporation to hide in the cracks of, and coast by on the least amount of effort. LifeOmic has impressive an impressive mission, and the passion behind it to deliver on its goals ahead of schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, and thanks for welcoming me into the team.
