    Beware... things are not as they seem

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgreat pay, gym, cafeteria. Most employees are very nice

    ConsAbsolutely zero work life balance. Certain directors (well... just one) are bullies and are condescending and rude beyond words. They have no life and expect others to be the same. Management is unaware or does not care. They are willing to let a smart and skilled director destroy an entire department. They assign managerial responsibilities to someone with no management or people skills. cancerous

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes. It does not matter how smart someone is... if she cannot lead people then it is a waste. When a department jumps ship, that's a big sign. Your reputation is at stake! You cannot bully your way to success!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible upper management - wrong people in the wrong positions making bad business decisions

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgood benefits and some good perks

    ConsThe lack of communication between departments is disgusting creating more unnecessary work for all. I question their corporate ethical code as it appears to be very lacking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people in the trenches doing the work and share information between departments in a pro active manner. ResMed as a whole is very reactive and this makes for poor work flow for all. The house cleaning that is taking place should have started at the top. If asked what happened with ResMed I'd say there was money mismanagement that had to be addressed and in typical ResMed fashion flying by the seat of their pants they are laying people off, forcing others out, and going out of their way to make things difficult for those who have been with the company for many years. Unfortunatly, this used to be a great company to work for. However, do to money mismanagement all hell has broke loose and it has only just started.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No work life balance, no training, no room for growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsBeautiful facilty in Kearney Mesa, excellent benefits, and a nice parking garage. Sleep apnea can be a serious health condition, it was fulfilling to know you might be helping someone.

    ConsNo work/life balance, expected to work 10-12 hour days. Management act like drill sergeants, demeaning and belittling the staff. Very unprofessional: men making obscene gestures, oogling the women and acting like 12 year olds. HR tends to have 'deer in headlights' look when you ask a question.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up and behave according to your own Corporate Values. Any relationship between the written corporate values and the behaviour is totally coincidental.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Equal opportunity White Male Employer.

    Wouldnt You Want to Know (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsEmployee benefits, physical work environment

    ConsPoor advancement of women in management from within, women are almost never promoted into management positions or any form of broader responsibility. There is not a single woman area manager and above, although they are happy employing women in sales positions, simply because they outperform most men, and you have to be attractive.. better yet... be able to smoke cigars and drink.. lots.. to be accepted into the exclusive circles. ( oh they promote women into management in europe.. almost forgot all 3 of them)

    It is noticed also that the good old boys club poke fun of women at work as well as in social functions, objectifying almost every one of them, openly... sexual banter is expected at every company function, at times with your significant other present... so be prepared to have ugly men use innuendos non stop for as long as you work there, including week long sales meetings where you will be . Most women have gotten used to that and it seems to be a well accepted fact. The yearly sales meetings are really a reality show after 6 pm..the woman at the bar still holding by 2 am will have a continuing career... almost guaranteed.

    human Resources know... but they are useless...

    It is a good old 50 year old boys club who promote from within their own, at times at the expense of good candidates who could be promoted and could perform much better.

    If you are a woman hoping to have a progressing career and climbing the ranks in mid level management, your career will hit the brakes with this company. You will go nowhere, your best hope is a lateral move and that is it.

    Also the company does not employ minorities unless it is for customer service, warehouse operations etc... with a few exceptions. The company also makes their political leanings very public and almost implying everyone should vote republican....

    Advice to Senior Management- Women are really your best asset in that company.
    - Philips-respironics will eclipse resmed in about 2 years flat.
