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

    Pros

    Some of the best people I've ever worked with. Management committed to agile practices. Great product - really had a chance to change healthcare.

    Cons

    Strategic planning and hardware management fell short and the product never really got off the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Bake FDA requirements in from the beginning instead of treating them as an afterthought.

    Poor effort and lack of professional from too many, heavy sense of entitlement, absence of performance management, overspent time and resources to launch product

    Lots of great people
    Good offices / environment / tech / computing capabilities

    Lack of investor oversight

    I worked at Omnyx (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best Team I've ever worked with, Great Culture, Great food, Great facial hair! Very motivated and passionate to be contributing to better and faster cancer diagnosis.

    Cons

    Poor communicator between Senior Management towards the end. Appeared to be a gap between Strategic goals, what the market itself demanded, the marketing department, and internal engineering. Made some poor choices on the hardware engineering side earlier in the company's life and never recovered from it.

    Advice to Management

    When going up again an established competitor sometimes aiming for 90% of the feature set at 50% of the price is much earlier than targeting 120% of the feature set at 250% of the price of your competitor's product.
