      Pros

      The videos are genuinely helpful for the scientists.

      Cons

      Too many to list. Here are a few. 1)The CEO is toxic. 2) Even though the colleagues can be nice, some even intelligent, there is no scope for development because the policies are implemented on the CEO's whim. 3) The CEO is awful.4)There is often no logic in the workflows and counter-intuitive workflows are created on the CEO's whim. 5) The CEO is arrogant and often ignorant. 6)There is no job security. 7)The CEO is indifferent to any personnel development often firing and hiring at whim. 7)Terrible work environment as your presence is policed. 8)The CEO is completely paranoid in his mistrust. 9)Gossip and cliques abound. 10)The HR could enter a competition to be the most incompetent in the world.

      Cons outweigh the Pros

      Pros

      Some great people work here, they pay for your T pass. There are 1/2 managers that are outstanding at their job but unfortunately cannot flourish the company to greater heights due to restraints from the CEO.

      Cons

      The bad reviews are here for a reason and I'd bet my house that the most recent reviews with one or two generic sentences, are written in house to boost the approval score. CEO is problematic and does not lead by example or empathy, he is a very intelligent man but that does not mean that he can lead a company. HR is a disaster and nothing is private which is troublesome.

      Pros

      You can make your schedule more flexible and work with friendly colleagues. From time to time you can work from home and your manager monitors your work activity online.

      Cons

      1. Ignorant CEO. His decision-making process is falling behind the latest one and this will ruin his company in the future. 2. There is no communication at all with the management, you just have to follow their orders and directions. This company is finished.

      Pros

      Met some really nice folks that became good friends. I did come out of JoVE mentally stronger.

      Cons

      From having male chauvinistic leaders, siloed groups gossiping about each other, to unprofessional HR amongst many other stuff - it was an interesting environment to call that place a workplace.
