    I worked at Martek Biosciences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job with a pay check.
    They have lots of money to spend on equipment.
    New ownership may improve things.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs.
    Goals change every 3 months.
    Ulterior motives by those looking to get a corner office.
    Not team oriented, promotion driven workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on results rather than individual accomplishments.
    If goals are constantly changing then they aren't being set right to begin with.

    Pros

    Martek provides the opportunity and resources for employees to do their best work. Upper management sets reasonable expectations and goals.

    Cons

    Since DSM has taken over, the company has been slower to meet the research requirements for a growing company. However, it now seems that they are on the right track.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management must continue to develop a deep pipeline of new products. One opportunity is to look at other opportunities like medical foods.
