Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Cepheid full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Cant think of any that would be of use or help.

Cons

To much work and overtime with no or very little support from management. Pay was weak. Much to complacent regarding DOT and dangerous goods training with new hires. Not hiring quality and experienced staff.

Advice to Management

Cannot give advice to management, they will disregard it for years.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cepheid full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has good benefits and offers stock options, if your good at negotiating it into your offer. Company stock is growing, so very beneficial for people granted stock options.

    Cons

    Company probably facing an exit strategy of a possible take over. Also several court cases in Santa Clara, CA filed against company for wrongful termination. Which concurs with this review and the bad management described in critiques given below. Almost everyone in 2013 given 1%-2% bonus, thus why I left there for better opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Leave while its good.
