    Pros

    The company vision is truly amazing.

    Cons

    The way they treat layoffs are incredibly cold and cheap.

    Advice to Management

    To HR (and Ronald Louks): please develop a better way to execute mass layoffs. The heartless way that you toss dozens of employees out will come back around to bite you, i.e. make recruitment much harder.
    Keep in mind all those 'little people' have families, and cutting off medical benefits has a huge impact.

    I worked at NantHealth full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Working from home.

    Cons

    The CEO needs to realize that his school boy projects impact people's lives in a big way. Yes you've got the money in the bank to try your experiments and walk away if they fail. The other people in your "team" don't have the billions in the bank to do the same.

    The CEO has made all the promises in the world to investors and the media. Only to have a mediocre company behind the scenes with no idea where it is going. Lying to people is not a good thing.

    Hiring incompetent senior management because they are your friends is the biggest mistake anyone can do. How on earth do you hire a COO whose every other word is "f'ing this" and "f'ing that", show to the world you know what you are doing?

    If anyone out there get's offered a job with any of Dr. Pat's companies, don't walk away, run away as fast as you can. All his companies are going bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO. Surrounding yourself with yes men to boost your insecure ego has shown you are clueless. Your businesses are going down the pan. Grow up and learn to make decisions like a man, not a little boy.

    Discrimination is rife here. If I could give zero stars, I would.

    Pros

    They had a great group of talented and hardworking people.

    Cons

    The upper management only cares about the bottom line. They have lost sight of the true vision of the company. They continue to close business units or sell them, and layoff people.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are human beings who deserve to be treated better. Your new COO has no soul.

    Pros

    There aren't really to many Pro's at this point in time they have continued to spiral down.

    Cons

    Disorganized, CEO and executive team are uncommunicative, in general don't have a plan, don't meet their own goal setting.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized. Communicate consistently. Don't do mass layoffs just because you don't have a plan.

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

    Pros

    There really was nothing more then a promise to help the clinical side of the business promote selling DNA sequencing to solve cancer. The hi-tech focus was thrown aside.

    Cons

    Most of the Engineering leadership really have no hi-tech experience. They came from defense industries with outdated management skills or hardware backgrounds. The separation of the deployment cloud with a sister Nant company will never work due to lack of common goals and power plays.

    Advice to Management

    The cons are addressable and not ignoble.

    I have been working at NantHealth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    "Promise" of working on something that may make a difference to mankind, such as Cancer Moonshot. When considered through a different lens, the organization dysfunction and chaos presents real opportunities, especially with regard to process improvement. Given the relatively high attrition and turnover, there may be opportunity for more rapid advancement and additional responsibility.
    A lot of smart people work in this company, but unfortunately, the management strategy (or lack of) and overall organizational dysfunction interfere with smart people doing great things.
    Focus on revenue is starting to drive business clarity and strategy.

    Cons

    Overall, lacks a cohesive and truly collaborative and positive culture. NantHealth acquired several tech companies within a relatively short window of time (~18-24 mos.) and has lacked vision, commitment and leadership to truly integrate these disparate organizations. In fairness, there has been some small progress recently, but all in all, very slow and painful. This contributed significantly to Sr Mgmt turf wars and an overall inability to establish clear priorities and plans to execute against. The local culture (and morale) will vary by geographic location but many locations have been negatively effected.
    This company really doesn't care about it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leaders need to align and work together in support of a strategy and plan - get them all in the (proverbial) boat together and pulling in the same direction
    Site and Tech VPs need to stop protecting their own turf and self interests, be crystal clear about Product development priorities and make decisions that support them.
    Actually care about your people and culture; don't just pay lip service to it. The little and big things all count.
    Fire NantCloud...expect more

    I have been working at NantHealth full-time

    Pros

    There were a LOT prior to NantHealth turning over the reins to Harris Health people.

    Cons

    Sales management – “Leadership” – How did these Harris people get their positions? NONE of them have actual management (of PEOPLE) experience … wouldn’t know how to motivate anyone if they were given an instruction manual … Putting these people in positions of management or “leadership” is like hiring a bartender who doesn’t know how to open a beer … We were all convinced Ron was going to make the required changes in order to be a successful company … nope … not happening … guess he would rather stick with idiocracy mediocrity than we all thought . Total bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair ... get NIX the Harris Health "Leadership/Management" ... PLEASE.

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

    Pros

    The company has a great vision and has hired a lot of great talent. Healthcare coverage is some of the best I've seen short of 100% covered.

    Cons

    Organization keeps acquiring new companies and then doesn't do anything to merge them in with the other companies. Executive team is severely lacking vision and consistently doesn't do what they say they will. The environment is very political and nothing gets done because of executive politics. There's a lot of potential here but unfortunately it will never be realized with the team currently in charge. A lot of promises were made during hiring process and none were kept. Most companies are some what dysfunctional but this one brings it to a new level. I wanted to love this place and believe in the vision, but lost all trust in executive team.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is simple. If you're going to make promises, keep them. There are a lot of hard working, intelligent employees here who believe in the company but don't believe in the leaderships ability to execute for justified reasons.
