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

    Pros

    Some great people here at solugenix. Everyone cares about their work and do their best to get the job done. It's an agile environment where things constantly shift, but very few companies can shift focus and still complete the task at hand. This company puts in 110% with limited resources, but what makes this place thrive are the people who work here. My direct report VP is the hardest working women I've ever met and is often in the thick of things alongside everyone, understanding the business and needs.

    Cons

    If you need strong structure this is not the place for you. It's consulting, so you have to learn as you go with little guidance and pray you don't make any mistakes. Benefits are not the best although I hear things are changing for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the workload of management and continue to get new business with clients that treat you like a partner.

    Pros

    Good people to work with make coming to work easy. Feels like you're making a difference for your customers. Company provides good tools to work with and is growing in a positive direction, so there is room for advancement. If you're not favored you'll quickly feel like an outsider.

    Cons

    While management makes an effort not make you feel like a cog in a machine, they only care about the their bonuses at the end of the year. Instead of matching 401k or giving those bonuses back to the employees that helped the company. They provide no specific job descriptions so they can simply add more to your workload without a justified pay raise. With no job description, there are no official evaluations, resulting in no annual raise--not even cost of living raise. It's very inconsistent. You could put in tons of effort and get nothing in return. I'm sure they'll read this and justify their actions or simply dismiss these comments.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your people, not just your clients. Give back to your employees based on their overall performance. Provide them goals and write job descriptions so they know your expectations. Matching 401k and a cost of living raise would be a start. Even fast-food and retail companies do this, Solugenix should be able to do the same. Reward them with something tangible, an occasional lunch is fleeting.

    Pros

    There are mostly no politics, the management tries to recognize employees for their efforts. For some teams, there are a lot of fun activities that keep the job interesting and engaging.

    Cons

    The on-boarding process could be significantly improved.

    Advice to Management

    While it is important that clients are a primary focus, making employees feel sincerely valued for their skills and trusted to their jobs could make a substantial impact on the overall company performance. When you treat employees well, they will treat the customers well as a result. Implementing a better defined process before each and EVERY new hire would highly improve their initial experience and increase their likelihood of success. Additionally, individuals should be given clearly defined roles and given the time to focus on these roles. This would enable them to perfect their jobs and be more successful at them.

    Pros

    Good pay
    Reasonable hours
    They pretty much leave you alone as long as the client is happy with your work

    Cons

    General approach is to be order takers for clients.
    Suggestions for process improvement are given lip service but are never taken seriously or acted on.

    Advice to Management

    Work toward more of a consultant relationship than an order-taking one. The interesting work tends to go to other firms that act more like consultants and less like a temporary agency

    Solugeix is an awesome company to work for! There are lots of opportunities for growth and advancement. I have been working for Solugenix for nearly 2 years and my experience has been amazing.

    Pros

    Lots of new business and projects coming in, which means more opportunities for advancement.
    Promotions have come from within the team since I've been here.
    Nice people to work with, minimal office politics.
    Good training program; It has a mix of classroom, shadowing, and hands on work.

    Cons

    Management is protective of the culture here and tries to make sure they find the right fit when it comes to new employees. That's led to some under-staffing for the past few months.

    I have been working at Solugenix Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solugenix has been a great company to work for. Benefits are good, leadership is very good and work very hard to continue the success of a company that has been around for 40+ years. In my time at Solugenix they have been very open to suggestions and new ideas. Solugenix has an internal process which allows any employee to suggest new lines of business for consideration. I've had many opportunities here to grow my skills and abilities (Note: These weren't "given" to me, I earned them through hard work and my own ability to "deliver" on my job assignments. Which is what I would hope any employee would expect. Politics aren't even in the vocabulary of the leadership team here. We are a flat organization, which is nice compared to some other very large companies I've worked for where decisions can take forever. Overall I'm very happy I came to work for Solugenix. Compensation over the years has been good, risen and fallen with the tide of the economy (as you would expect) but when the company is doing well I have been compensated well for my efforts. This has been one of the most rewarding jobs in my career! I would strongly recommend Solugenix to anyone in my network!

    Cons

    401k match would be nice to have.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace the growth of our company in the coming years and seek new opportunities to help Solugenix grow! Never lose the family oriented nature of the business we have today!
