Featured Review
"US Genomics"2 Oct 2017

Former Employee - Director

I worked at U.S. Genomics full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Really revolutionary technology. A wonderful team. Great laboratories. Focused, highly qualified team focused to the final result and supported by the federal government.

Cons

A startup; hence, all the uncertainties related with future funding, future topics, future fields. The board of directors poorly versed in technology aspects of the company and nursing ungrounded... expectations.

Advice to Management

Be more realistic. Keep the Board in bay and force them to understand the company technology, its limits, its real performance. Learn to understand the difference between real results and Power Point... presentations.
