    I worked at Theranos full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It was an ambitious and noble goal; true challenges but good freedom to learn and deliver sub-systems...good coworkers, culture and compensation.

    Cons

    The number one rule was keep your head down and do what you're told - don't talk to anyone else nor try to learn how the product is performing; little did we know this is because they didn't want anybody to know the challenges or failures that the product as a system was experiencing... Marketing and upper management was overly optimistic about the state of the system, but had no sense of the reality of the product; Town halls touted the greatness of our data, and how the world is out to get us. Little did we know we were just drinking the cool-aid. This is what you get when you load management with yes-men and product management is run by a fraternity. Despite doing some of our best work, many of us are doomed to be associated with this con-job for the rest of our careers...
