    I have been working at bioTheranostics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and nice co-workers that are knowledgeable and helpful.

    Cons

    Management need to change. They are not supportive of their team, more of a dictatorship. No room for growth in the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, pretty flexible on the scheduling. Very lenient on time off requests.

    Cons

    The Client Services department is mostly comprised of people who worked together or knew each other from other jobs. Very cliquish.

    Advice to Management

    It's never a good idea to have friends answering to friends. Creates conflict of interest.

    Pros

    The concept of helping people with cancer is fantastic.

    The way management treats its employees as disposable is not.

    Treat your people like people

    Pros

    Small company feel, exposure to many areas of the business. Benefits are so-so, but better than expected for a small company. Nice, clean office setting.

    Cons

    Poor compensation, poor leadership, no hiring skills. Zero investment in the people hired. Very high turnover. Lots of office politics and whispering. Most employees have a very negative attitude and seem that they do not want to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in HR-type training for middle managers to teach them how to manage, hire and advise. Invest in Human Resources training sessions to improve the office culture.

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

    Pros

    Smart, hard working people. You will get a lot of responsibility here and gain a lot of experience quickly but will not have the authority to make things happen. Products are interesting to customers but need a lot more evidence before wider adoption.

    Cons

    Competitive ability is questionable: the CEO lacks business acumen and the leadership skills required to drive bioTheranostics forward. He's also volatile, demotivates employees and doesn't trust anyone to do what they were hired to do. Senior management lives in a bubble and lacks experience compared to peer group companies. HR is worst-in-class (seriously, I've never met an HR department of one that's as tone deaf, inexperienced and as obtuse as HR at bioTheranostics). Salaries run 10-20% below comparators at other similar San Diego-based companies. Benefits got worse and worse every year. 401k was good, however, as the parent company matched up to 6% and you are invested right away. Turnover is very high with key personnel leaving for better opportunities on a regular basis--within last 24 months, the chief scientific officer left and wasn't replaced, the sales leadership changed three times, the chief medical officer left and many, many sales representatives have left/quit/been fired. It's a negative culture and environment.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to do a lot of work to build confidence with employees. More experienced and capable leadership required here.

    Pros

    Good product improving patients' lives

    Cons

    Poor senior management resulting in a poor culture. Most people do not want to be there and it is obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Have one vision and stick to it. Lead by example when it comes to raising the level of employee engagement and work quality.
