    I have been working at NantWorks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company mission to cure cancer-major pro.
    If you work hard, you get noticed and rewarded. Company is certainly trying to increase the perks by adding an equity plan, performance management review with bonus, food trucks, on site carwash and dry cleaning.
    Medical benefits are excellent
    You get to work amongst some of the smartest scientist and doctors
    Modern office space
    Room for growth in most positions

    Cons

    Start ups aren't perfect and turn over is high, but company and HR acknowledge this and are working hard to fix.

    Pros

    Some of the things on here might ring true, big company, crazy atmosphere, no perks, etc. But what you have to remember is to look at the mission, to cure and fight cancer. If all you worry about are the small things, you should not be working here. Look at the big picture and know that what you do is going to impact millions of people and their families. At our current headcount of over 1,000 you have to remember we were all part of something smaller and now part of the Nant family to fight cancer. I like the mission, we have the right pieces, let's get on board and get moving. Lots of things ahead of us.

    Cons

    Lots of construction since we are building lots of new buildings

    Advice to Management

    Keep salaries competitive, hire top talent, fire fast, hire fast, move fast

    As a scientist, I'm truly excited by the type, quantity, and quality of data being generated here for research and for doctors and patients. The company supports a good work/life balance, and is protective of their employees. We have a daily impact on the care of people with cancer.

    Cons

    Not all infrastructure seems to be in place yet; this makes some projects feel a bit hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Increase hiring and get the proper infrastructure in place.
