    I worked at Omnilytics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good product with potential. Lab manager is laid back and easy going! Fellow lab techs were delightful to work with, and they allow radio to be played during work.

    Cons

    Yearly layoffs. Poor business ethics. Low pay. Small company, >20 employees. Location is terrible. No incentives to employees yet upper management owns luxury cars.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to budget your business to reduce turnover of your employees. It costs a lot to hire and train people. Also, people depend on reliable jobs, this job is the opposite of reliable.

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

    Pros

    1. The natural bacterial control idea is nice.

    2. Pay is comparable to, or exceeding, other places in the valley.

    Cons

    1. It's a family owned business so don't be surprised to see family and friends make appearances for periods of time and get paid more than you but not be as good.

    2. Executive management doesn't know much about the science. There's an insurance salesman as the CEO and an electrical engineer as the COO of a biotechnology company. The VP of R&D was a Ph.D. but he didn't have experience with bacteriophages.

    3. The ethics of management is shady.

    4. Yearly layoffs. Either mid 4th quarter or early 1st quarter they fire people but they switch it up. They seem to think having employees in fear of being fired is a good motivator to work hard.

    5. No 401k.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Take some biology classes from SLCC or the U.

    I worked at Omnilytics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They do something novel and interesting

    Cons

    They expect all salary employees to work 40/week slow times and 45-55/hour weeks busy times without any additional compensation. (and this is entry level salary, 30,000)
    They had multiple mass firing and nothing was every clearly explained as to why.

    Advice to Management

    What goes around comes around. If you expect to succeed in the long run don't treat employees like dirt.

    I worked at Omnilytics full-time

    Pros

    They were good people as long as you were willing to have them looking over your shoulder even if they had half the experience if any in what they were attempting to micromanage you for. The good side was when things were good you didn't have to worry about them making sure you were going to have more work that day because they would all ways dump more on you and wonder why you were getting an attitude about having to do 8 or 10 different jobs and get them done in 10 minutes each.

    Cons

    They were sure to take advantage of you if management made a bad decision and changed processes that resulted in bad product. Most of the time blame was never placed or pointed where it belonged.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you find that when something is not broken, don't try and fix it. Improvements are made through group effort and mistakes are made by one or two people taking control and making changes for them selves.
