Everyone helps each other out.
People are excited because the company is growing.
My friends that are still there think the new space is really good.
Employees are respected and treated well.
Not enough fun events to blow off steam
Advice to Management
Remember the things that got you where you are--don't grow too fast.
Dynamic workplace with congenial colleagues. People were focused, but still willing to answer questions when needed. The company was small enough for you to know everyone.
The biggest "con" was poor management. The company was small yet there were still competing projects, which led to unnecessary tension among the employees. The "visionaries" of the company appeared to be only barely cognizant of the goings on of the company and fixated on profit.
Great projects--anyone can make a major contribution from Day 1. People are treated fairly, with no game-playing. Everyone has a clear understanding of how they fit in to the companies goals. Management is accessible and easy to talk to. The building and location are great.
Almost everyone really works hard, but a few people don't--others have to pick up the slack. Lots of traffic in the morning.
Advice to Management
With all the activity going on, it is sure that the company will be growing alot--make sure you keep the company culture. Don't become bean counters!

I suppose this could be a good bridge-job if you can't find anything else. They do pay you, which is better than being unemployed.
The company is micro-managed to the extreme. Successful people at Net Bio are those who do not rock the boat with any creativity. It is expected that you will work 6 - 7 days a week, 10 - 12 hours a day, doing exactly what you are told. No more and no less. If that sounds appealing, you've found your home.
