Cepheid...a growing experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

Pros-Benefits are 'OK' for the valley: 3 weeks off, healthcare is good and cost to employees is cheap, employee stock options are provided.

Cons-Middle mangers at the company are poorly trained. They don't know how to manage people and can be very political.
-They don't promote / develop from within; they would rather hire someone off the street.
-Pay less than other comparable companies.
-People aren't very social. Everyone goes to work and then goes home. Most people have families that work here.
-CEO is extremely cheap hence why the pay is less than comparable companies.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut in place training programs to train middle managers - they need it!

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