    Pros

    I have experienced a great team environment where my opinion matters. I have a great management team and look forward to my work day.

    Cons

    We are adding a lot of people so just going through some growing pains. There is room for some improvement in communication between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the best job I have had in a long time. Just continue with the training programs for management but invest in the employees also.

    I worked at Cepheid full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Put in place training programs to train middle managers - they need it!
