    Pros

    There are plenty of friendly people at Metabolix. I loved the culture and how majority of the people are friends with each other outside of work. Many social opportunities with the people you work with: lunch groups after work drinks at bars nearby. Occasional celebrations like monthly birthday, small in-office parties make employees happy. It's a very innovative company.

    Cons

    Projects tend to change very often. So many ideas, but not enough people to perform all of the ideas.
