    I have been working at Proteus Digital Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The digital medicine product is right out of a Sci-Fi novel, and the recent FDA approval is a big deal to the future of the company. Great people, and broad mix of smart technology old-timers, and fresh young faces too. Still small enough to make an impact in your own way on the success of the company, and plenty to learn since all of this is brand new.

    I've referred two friends here and one is now working here.

    Cons

    Some of the onsite snacks are a bit too healthy to be tasty, and parking near the building is impossible if you arrive after 9am (additional parking is available, but not as convenient).

    There are also a lot of three letter acronyms (TLA's) to get used to in the first months on board - but not really a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Continue improving communication between the two locations (Hayward and Redwood City), and keep doing the all-hands meetings and public recognitions to highlight employee milestones and achievements. Finally, don't fall into the same traps other start-ups do: scale too quickly, lose focus of who the customer is, and reward bad behaviors with promotions or rewards.

    flexible working, innovative technology, supportive peers

    Cons

    Corporate management structure, lack of quality decision making, uninspiring office, too much process

    Advice to Management

    Execute to a strategic time plan that doesn't change every 12 months, empower people to do their jobs/fulfil their roles, accept you don't know the detail and be happy that other people do/can make the right decisions, realize that a well designed product offering is more than aligning to a regulatory strategy, understand the value of your business is the quality and commitment of your staff

    Pros

    The only reason to work here if you live locally and don’t like to deal with the crappy traffic.

    Cons

    Shift supervision are a joke all they do is speak their languages and backstab people daily. The products work sometimes and most of the time is test test test and no results. Turnovers are more than selling the product....

    Advice to Management

    Sell it so a larger company can make something out of it.
    You try that with a large Japanese firm and they laugh at you.

    They have flexible work schedule, but it also depends on the team, nice and smart coworkers. They have free snack bars.

    I have been working at Proteus Digital Health full-time

    Pros

    The company can raise nearly limitless money. The company was incorporated 17 years ago and is still able to raise hundreds of millions easily.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of turnover in the company. Teams fight each other often and there is a lot of backstabbing while teams try to look better than other parts of the company. HR often has to get involved.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many directors who can't deliver results. They try to make themselves look good by belittling other teams. If the culture continues in this direction, you will lose everyone who is actually delivering.

    Great people, very interesting product/technology

    Cons

    Despite being a small company, there are some 'devotion to process' growing pains

    Advice to Management

    Allow more 'breaking glass' and don't sit on process for process' sake
