    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at U.S. Genomics

    Pros

    Good starting salaries for a variety of positions. Benefits are average but they offer good medical and dental services. Job positions are challenging, always on your toes. Must be smart and think ahead.

    Cons

    When I first joined, I liked and respected what USG potentially had to offer to the scientific community. I was disappointed as the months went on though. There is an extremely poor work/life balance. Looking back, I would NEVER recommend this job to someone who has children they must look after as this job has poor "core" hours. You have a lucky job if you can leave at 5 or 6 in the afternoon. Most do not. The projects are extremely challenging and though this may be nice sometimes, there is high discontent here as simple issues takes days or weeks to be resolved. I also got the impression many people are hard to just basically get along with in the workplace. Behind the scenes, there is a gossip mill and backstabbing between research associates, though this has slightly improved this past year with newer hires. I have also noticed this workplace has a lot more cliques than other places which basically degrades the morale of the workplace in general as these cliques are not for the best of the company.

    I have been working at U.S. Genomics

    Pros

    Working at U.S. Genomics gives me a sense of personal accomplishment. As a small company everyone contributes directly to our ultimate goal of a biodefense and human diagnostic product - definitely cutting edge science!! We each have the opportunity to contribute to something that will make our world a safer and healthier place to live.

    Cons

    My workload is manageable and dominated by time sensitive tasks.
