    Pros

    Onboarding was very professionally done and painless. On the job training was provided so that I was not felt guessing was my expectations are going to be and I feel like job responsibilities have been well defined.

    Cons

    Large corporation may simply mean that you may be supporting users who you will never build a personal professional relationship with.

    Great Company - Lots of change - Not all is positive

    Jul 28, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Its a great company with lots of opportunities. You can gain a lot of knowledge across many STEM disciplines. The company is willing invest in your personal and career growth. This is a great company for someone new to the workforce that is looking to expand on their studies.

    Cons

    Attrition is at an all time high, fringe benefits have been reduced, and the health plan is average. They are not as 'remote - friendly' as other companies in 2022. As headcount become available, the supporting roles are typically overlooked. This can lead to large backlogs of day to day work without any opportunity to focus on innovation.

    Change is good when you have leaders that care

    Aug 6, 2022 - Director 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Amazing scientific community. Focus on customer.

    Cons

    Leadership says something but does something else. Lots of talk around having an indomitable spirit and leading with compassion. I guess you are indomitable when you have a driver take you to work, therefore having the company pay for your gas. The rest of the employees have to pay for their cars and gas, yet they don’t make over a million dollars in salary and compensation. You are compassionate when you work from home to make sure your father in law is healthy during the pandemic, but you want employees back in the office 5 days a week. You are compassionate when you stop 401k contributions during the pandemic but get your full bonus paid. When you are all about data, let the company attrition rate tell the story. When over 60% of your HR leadership team leaves that is a leading indicator about working here.
