    I have been working at Veracyte full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is working hard and supporting each other, it's the kind of place where you want to go to work in the morning! It's not always easy in healthcare to find research and products you really believe in, but Veracyte has that and has employees that care about patient impact. Management is relaxed but supportive when you need resources. Pay is competitive. Company maintains intimate feel while still expanding a lot. All around great!

    Cons

    PTO and benefits are reasonable, but could be better as compared to other biotech companies nearby.

    Pros

    Veracyte is a great place to work! Everyone works extremely well as a team and the environment is not stressful at all and and there is no pressure to perform. Everyone takes great pride in the work that we do and doing our best to get the patient the proper care and treatment. Management provides you with everything you need to do well at this job , and they make sure that they are at your disposal when it comes to it. Overall I enjoy working at this lab and!

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Great product, excellent executive managements,

    Cons

    Terrible operations team, not very good at executing the idea in an efficient manner. tough industry to make money, regulation restricts most of the growth.

    Advice to Management

    The operations team is not well managed. Especially with an inefficient manager. Do not know what he should be doing most of the time. Has no clue how to fix the issue present, and does not execute any urgent agenda due to lack of ability or some lame excuse.

    I worked at Veracyte full-time

    Pros

    Good working environment and team.

    Cons

    Management needs to grow up, understand the employees and get to know the technical aspect of work instead of making unnecessary rules that affect efficiency. Management attitude towards employees needs to change.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to improve their technical skills and attitude prior to leading a team. Otherwise, this hurts the team culture and in turn the company itself,

    I have been working at Veracyte full-time

    Pros

    Culture here at Veracyte is wonderful. Upper management truly cares about your well-being, thoughts and ideas (stemming all the way up to the CEO Bonnie). Every single person in the company helps one another and no task or idea is too big or too small. Managers do not "micro-manage" from my experience, but are still actively engaged with their employees. The company is full of intelligent minds who truly want to make a difference in medicine. This company cares about patients and cares about its Employees.

    Cons

    Company is small so territories can be pretty big, which means a bit of travel.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    - Small company with a lot of talented and motivated employees
    - Great products that really make a difference and save patients from expensive, invasive diagnostic procedures
    - Good work/life balance
    - Management is supportive and receptive

    Cons

    Professional development and career advancement are the responsibility of the employee. Your manager is your coach but the employee is responsible for identifying their career path and utilizing their manager as a resource. This is not necessarily a con, but may not be the right fit for all job seekers.
