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

    Pros

    Good benefits, convenient location, generous holidays.

    Cons

    The business model of the company is inherently outdated and relies on a panel for its research that has been so mismanaged over the years that it is essentially useless..

    Pros

    New office is nice and

    Cons

    More and more people left since the new CEO only cares about bringing in more investors and doesn't want to hire people, just put on more work on old people. Seeing the company is going down, people left. Some people work so hard, stay late at the office everyday, some people just go to the gym at noon, play with phones all day, WFH a lot but still get approved by managers.

    I have been working at BioInformatics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people at BioInfo are amazing coworkers who help me learn. I do not have a science degree so it can be daunting but we work well as a team with many of my colleagues having an MBA or PhD

    Cons

    Some late nights when clients need their results but everyone is working together to pull the data and write the report to deliver for the client

    I have been working at BioInformatics full-time

    Pros

    Brand new 16th floor Office in Ballston. New CEO who is fixing, innovating, growing and nurturing the Company. Super smart people who are passionate and nice. Well stocked drink cooler and monthly chair massages. The best part is the work. Interesting and helping lead other businesses make good decisions.

    Cons

    A little construction around the area of the new Office but should be done in a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Thanks for treating people with professionalism, respect and humor!

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

    Pros

    Good work-life balance and very flexible in terms of work hours, working from home, and taking time off.

    Cons

    Most of the staff is under paid, especially the the junior staff. The company also lacks clear focus and future strategic direction.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation for employees and implement a proper bonus structure when appropriate.

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

    Pros

    Some staff are nice people, who, unfortunately are overworked, under-resourced and grossly underpaid.

    Cons

    The executive leadership, and it is anything but leadership, is back-biting, in-fighting and openly fighting amongst the staff, ridiculing and trashing each other constantly. There is no vision or strategy for the company. There is no philosophy of employee retention and the company has become a revolving door of young, inexperienced employees because they come cheap. The C-Suite Executive is an addict, AWOL most of the...

    I worked at BioInformatics full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, some folks are nice to work with, nice location near the metro and generally a solid commute for most people.

    Cons

    Extremely underpaid. Benefits are mediocre. The management are self-important blowhards with very limited ability to lead, create any kind of actual revenue, or even connect to the industry as a whole. Data gathering and dissemination is borderline laughable and put together clumsily by a young staff that really does not have a clue and can't learn since management are so incompetent. New CEO is a joke and has poisoned...
