    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Hurry up and do the current thing mentality
    In other words, not strategic thinking - how to get this assignment done rather than how to win
    Inexperienced management at mid- and senior-levels
    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.

    I worked at Omnyx (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Omnyx were incredible.

    Cons

    Lack of focus by SLT led to many issues including the eventual shuttering of the organization and it's subsequent absorption into GE HealthCare

    Advice to Management

    The time for advice has passed.

    The people. Healthcare and Cancer diagnostics focused; this product was going to save lives

    I have been working at Omnyx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You won't find a team of more highly skilled individuals. Great benefits, really great people, and at least in the ranks of R&D a really great, nurturing culture.

    Cons

    If you're not much of a debater look elsewhere. The team is highly skilled and everyone has a relevant opinion. Unfortunately, we've never found a way to effectively cut that off. In addition, there continues to be turnover at the management level which makes it difficult to understand the message.

    Advice to Management

    First and foremost, stabilize the management structure. Establish a cadence for all employee updates and stick to it, 2x per year is not sufficient.

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

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, I felt free to express my ideas in Omnyx. Nice colleagues there. Not a very large company, so that you can easily get to anyone in the company.

    Cons

    Omnyx is kind of a new company, relatively small scale. This could be a con for some people but a pro for some others. It depends.

    Advice to Management

    Omnyx may need to hire more really brilliant engineers. As a tech company, Omnyx's culture is not quite engineering, people are not quite excited about their works.

    Pros

    Products that impact patient lives and outcomes

    Cons

    From early 2014, the company has gone downhill. Lots of turnover in Sr.Management. The strong culture that existed prior to 2014 has faded away. There is no communication about the future of the company

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better across the entire organization.

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

    Pros

    I have enjoyed my time with Omnyx for the most part. What makes this place special is the people I work with. Everyone is great and fun to work with and it has definitely been the main reason I have stayed with Omnyx during all the turnover.

    Cons

    There has been a ton of turnover at Omnyx, including a lot of the Senior management staff. This has resulted in heavy changes to the Omnyx fun culture. Gone are the days of the easy going, fun having culture and in are the days with more strict rules. We can still play games like foosball and ping pong, but it is more discouraged and regulated now.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees. The previous senior management team was very open with employees about the companies goals, future projects, and future outlooks. The new senior management teams holds everything close to the vest and a lot of the employees do not know what the future of Omnyx holds.
