    Pros

    Direct quote from me to a friend who recently applied for (and was hired) for a data scientist job: "I absolutely love it here. Smart people, great work, fantastically progressive and supportive culture."

    Cons

    Currently in the process of being purchased by Bayer, which has bred some uncertainty and is distracting for jobs which focus on strategy and long-term strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing transparency and timely updates to employees about changes associated with the acquisition. Counter employee anxiety over uncertainty with increased bonuses and PTO.
