Enjoyed working with the various teams. Good pay, for most roles unless you are a technician or deskside support staff person.

Unfortunately, Management is very clique-oriented and if you are not in the clique, you won't be treated well. There is only advancement if you are connected to the right people, so just keep this in-mind when you take a position.


The Sales Management are great but don't know how to estimate 'project work' - so that particular area is quite often underestimated and as a result staff have to work far too hard on projects to keep the customers happy.


Great for a newbie looking to get in to a trade, or a parent looking for a stable job. And, really, if you are just looking for work, then it's an ok place to work.
Pros
Ok pay, stability, great co-workers, some training dollars, great Xmas parties & other events for staff
Cons
Long hours, little to no recognition, no advancement, lots of favouritism

Compugen makes very little to invest in their employees. Management seems not to care about employees. You are micromanaged and there's no recognition for those hard working folks who do work overtime. Nepotism is also rampant in this company which creates a lot of unnecessary drama.

The management has very high expectations on employees, but they don't communicate well. Though you are being watched over all the time, they don't discuss what they exactly want to the employees. There's no clear communication and it affects the productivity and efficiency of the employees.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits are offered even to those without working experience.

- So much physical work.
- Under paid.

- Management not cooperative.

- Holidays are paid. Overtime is not mandatory; however, we have option to decline which is good in case you're tired.

- So much politics in company. If you have good relationship in the upper management than you have a chance to change department.
Pros
Holidays are paid
Cons
So much politics.

I didn't see a safe future here. The management was very reserved and didn't open up to employees. The pay increases were promised but never happened. I also didn't see any growth further. I had no choice but to look for another job.
Pros
They had adequate technological tools.

Enjoyed the work and the team, but no advancement and many false promises led me to leave the company. More than once management left the team out to dry when it came to replacing those who left or were let go, leading to overwork at times.
Pros
Relatively relaxed, good people working there
Cons
Low pay, management above supervisor level is barely around.

There were never any fixed processes in place to conduct work. Management ran on a complete trail and error process to determine if a new project or process will work.

Too much work for a very low pay. I quit working here because this place takes advantage of employees who can't easily find a better-paying job so they just stay and suffer from working here for a very little pay.They promise pay raises but those were just blank promises. Stay away from this place if you don't want to be stuck doing work of 3 people but getting paid for just one.

One of the sales director is very impatient and regularly shows his coarseness and disrespects his colleagues. He creates a negative environment in the workplace but expects everyone to always be enthusiastic with their work. No one likes him, and only shows respect to him because he's the boss.
Pros
Lots of tech to learn, fast paced and good coffee.

Unless you work directly on the company site, resources are limited and often met with a lot of resistance and barriers. They expect you to bend over backwards for the client without putting their company at risk of losing the contract.

the workday is quite structured but chaotic at the same time, everyone just wants to get the work off their shoulders, there is a lot of politics, managers send ahead people who they prefer and who bow down to them, anyone who tries to do the right thing or stands up for their rights is shunned and indirectly shadow banned. The management will be very open and friendly to your face but will basically back stab you as soon as they get their chance.

On-site Tier1 support where being proactively helpful in a slow-paced office environment was pulled back in faviour of funnelling everything through the Helpdesk and only then allowing local support to go and help the user.

DO NOT WORK HERE
New management does not now how to treat staff. They will change your contract and add things without your knowledge. They release confidential information about employees as well. Avoid at all costs.

Working at Compugen can be fun but it takes some time to change a process that is outdated. They are a progressive company using all types of new technology but some processes are followed because of the "that's how it has always been done" mentality. Good, open culture, flexible environment, ability to work from home for certain positions and decent growth opportunities.
Pros
remote work, summer bbq's, free parking, electric car charging stations
Cons
below average pay and benefits
