Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"1st: NO TRANSPARENCY 2nd: HIERARCHY 3rd: POOR MANAGEMENT 4th: MANAGERS MADE MANY EMPTY PROMISES TO MAKE YOU STAY AT THE COMPANY 5th: Management has given themselves countless of raises and promotions for 0 notable accomplishments. 6th: Expect to deal with a lot of politics 7th: they hold others accountable while not holding themselves accountable"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"No one listens to one another, everyone just talks at each other. You can't solve problems this way! Lack of transparency amongst everyone; within the department and between departments. Management is a joke all around with no self-accountability. Stop passing the blame and own it. Food sucks."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"New management is struggling due to lack of vision and experience."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"No transparency, questionable practices and decisions. No accountability for actions, inefficient use of time and resources and unrealistic timelines. Some employees get by with doing just the bare minimum if even that much."
says"Poor communication with employees, not to mention backers who have initially funded the company. Disorganized. Their offices are old and not air conditioned. Good luck getting paid on time as an hourly employee."
Former Employee - Engineer says"Stagnant, detached management that doesn't have a start-up mentally. - No cohesive company culture or goals. - Lower management has no coaching or accountability to evaluate and improve their performance. - Upper management and HR seem to be on a different planet to regular team members. All feedback from employees seems to be ignored. - The agile methodologies which usually help startup teams move quickly and stay in sync are absent. - Aditionally, many of the longer term employees seem resistant to trying new methodologie. They prefer the slack work environment and getting by doing the minimum..which is great if that's what you want in a job but is frustrating if you want to help build an amazing company. - Deadlines were often vague or totally absent. Combined with poor communication from management about priorities, it often felt like we had no momentum. - Ideas from motivated employees were repeatedly ignored and eventually each lead to each formerly enthusiastic employee getting frustrated and moving on. - Really high employee turnover and frequent rounds of layoffs. for example. Scanadu has hired, used and then laid off 3 separate clinical data collection teams over 3-4 years! - I would really advise anyone considering a position here to speak to former employees on LinkedIn about their experiences before accepting an offer."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"The CEO gets away with exorbitant spending and misogynistic comments. Management has given themselves countless of raises and promotions for 0 notable accomplishments. The company still does not have a FDA approved product on the market."
says"The company has a poor financial history (ask them how many millions they raised, spent, and earned), highly politicized environment, some questionable promotion choices, no visible raises or even performance reviews, weak management, and then there is the erratic CEO who puts employees up on a pedestal only to later cast them aside. Bottom line: despite the pluses, this employer’s instability and minefield of politics make it too risky. There are so many tech. companies in the Bay Area that surely you can find a better company to work for."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Unfortunately, politics corrupt this company from the top down. The CEO and VPs often make promises to investors, board members, and the public to gain funding and company hype. The technical feasibility is an after thought, and a burden placed on the manager and employees of the team. When things are going well, expect that the VPs and CEO will be there to take credit; if things are going poorly, expect them to maneuver themselves out of the path of destruction and let their employees take the fall. I strongly advise future candidates to talk to people on their team before making any decision."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Questionable hirings, all levels. It is a very small company, with thick layer of management. Very small company, with big-company behaviors, and politics. Little teamwork; me-first attitudes, and siloes. The "fun" culture seems more like a night-club atmosphere sometimes Very old building, slow wifi More good people leaving than coming in No 401k"
Employee (Former Employee) says"The company had a good start, however, politics and poor planning has led to one avoidable problem after another. Lack of results led to lack of funding and the layoffs of good people. Other star employees left in frustration. I would not recommend working here, there are other opportunities in the Bay Area with companies that have more stability and better management.Nice peopleFinger pointing culture, no real HR"
Scientist (Current Employee) says"Strong engineering teams, weak business/marketing/management. The whole organization is overly stovepiped and inefficient as fast as startups go, it behaves like a big company."
