      I worked at Veracyte full-time

      Pros

      Benefits. Flexible scheduling. Coffee. Good location for walking.

      Cons

      Gossip between management and subordinates with obvious favoritism. People that do not work and are not held accountable and even promoted. Management does NOT listen or make changes based on employee recommendations -- even though that is what they purport themselves to be. Two managers have absolutely NO IDEA what is going on, and keep on being managers. (Picture George Costanza as a molecular scientist....) Management...

      Advice to Management

      Get rid of the inept management. LISTEN to the employees that are doing the work and watching their co-workers NOT WORK and spend all day on their phones. Don't just take one side with office issues - there are two sides to every story. Remember there are TWO offices and acknowledge the TX office equally. If people don't perform - get rid of them. Negativity SOLVED. :)

      I have been working at Veracyte full-time

      Pros

      Quite a few really hard working people working here, but for the most part, everyone knows how to have fun. People are also always willing to help you, and as long as you speak up, your concerns are generally heard.

      Cons

      This is both a pro and a con: managers tend to be hired internally, but without proper management training. It leads to people who are good at the job being unable to handle personnel issues, and they end up being escalated further up than they should be. Some of the more entry level employees are also severely underpaid. Ex: lab assistants are hired at $5-$8 less per hour when compared to clinical labs in the area,...

      Advice to Management

      Focus on training managers before they’re promoted, and PLEASE do some hard work to increase the pay of entry level employees. The Bay Area is not a cheap place to live, and a good work culture isn’t always enough to keep our best employees when they’re rent is over half of their paycheck.

      I have been working at Veracyte full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great work enviornment - casual dress code, congenial coworkers , upbeat energetic FUN culture - they get you involved, not too hard for entry level work,

      Cons

      No real flexibility with schedule, easy to learn processes - can be boring to those who dispise doing the same thing over and over

      Advice to Management

      Keep it up. The management is attentive to your needs at work and are understanding of the changes that your life outside of work takes you through. Working with them has been incredible

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Veracyte full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Work with some great people. Some not so great. Half the Austin lab are great and the other half don't do any work

      Cons

      Management are very narcissistic, especially the Lab supervisor and Assistant supervisor. Always micromanagement when they don't even go into the lab. Drove a lot of great people away from this place. Love dramas. Always point out the negative instead of positive.

      Advice to Management

      Find new management. Stop hiring idiots with no qualifications.

      Cons

      Rapid growth results in slight disorganization, R&D needs more bandwidth

      Advice to Management

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Veracyte full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The benefits offered were ok. Free food was provided every now and then. Nice team to work with.

      Cons

      Unprofessional, Uncaring and Narcissistic behavior from the manager and supervisor is this labs downfall. There is quite a bit of favoritism going on in this department. If you’re not an expert at playing “ the game” then don’t work in this lab.

      Advice to Management

      Commit to the job and Not “ the game”. If you will not stop lying to the employees and creating negative experiences, then consider going somewhere else because making your team members upset on a regular basis was not on the job description
