    Pros

    Great product. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    I do have sincere feelings about there being severe "Favoritism" on site as well. I can't help but see it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More teambuilding exercises should be added. Please listen to the advice of your subordinates. We all come from somewhere and have some decent things to add.

    Avoid "TEMP TO HIRE" status

    I worked at DexCom as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Growing company, very busy. Ideal product.

    Cons

    SHADY hiring process. Legal I suppose? ... but non-the-less very shady. I have worked at other tech companies that state hiring position to be "temporary staffing", "contractor", or even "part-time" jobs. As you can see these give you a solid understanding that they are NOT offering a permanent job position. DexCom on the other hand have various positions offering "TEMP-TO-HIRE" jobs. This is misleading due to the fact that people who apply for this job THINK this is actually a real temp job waiting to be hired if they performed successfully. Yet in reality, DexCom's strategy to label the job as "temp-to-hire" is actually just a way to attract highly qualified people to apply and perform work during DexCom's busy time frame and then at the end of the "temp-to-hire" time frame... let them go (aka layoff). Why is this shady? Because, during the time frame the person works at DexCom as a "temp-to-hire" employee, he/she would receive several PERMANENT position offerings from other companies. Due to the belief that the "temp-to-hire" would become a permanent employee at DexCom, the employee would naturally reject any other job offerings from other companies and lose that opportunity. By the way, if you are a higher paid "temp-to-hire" employee, DexCom WILL let you go right at the end of the "temp-to-hire" job period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop the false advertisement "temp-to-hire" process. If you just need temporary work, just label it plainly as that, you will receive sufficient enough people who will apply for this position. Stop misleading high quality people into accepting this job position who could otherwise accept other PERMANENT job offerings from another company. Great product, NEGATIVE work environment. Hope DexCom's high turnover ratio bites them where it hurts.

    Lack of organizational skills - unhappy employees

    Pros

    Decent salary and bonus's. Insurance is relatively decent. Company is growing fast. They feed you at the end of the month.

    Cons

    Employees are overworked and there is a high turnover rate. Management leans towards favoritism. Many unhappy employees who are over worked, which causes burnout. Employees are constantly stressed out and work under a big microscope. Lack of training and organizational skills. Temps are cut loose and taken advantage of. Many unhappy customers complaining. This company has a blacked out month, where employees cannot take anytime off! Holidays are made for family, not your dollar amount! Some sale assistants are not very polite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stray away from favoritism within the company. Respect your employees. Stop the gossiping! Not healthy and very unprofessional! Perhaps management should be the one who is micromanaged. How would they like that?

    Pros

    The people are friendly and willing to help. The upper management are willing to help in improving your career. You learn so much experience that will advance you in your next position. The work is fast paced but keeps you busy and the day goes by fast. The company's R&D department are relentless in improving the product so there is always something new happening. I have learned so much in such a little time.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast that there are not enough parking spaces for the employee's.
    The 401K plan doesn't match any contributions.
    There are not that many perks for being an employee.
