    I have been working at Genomic Health

    Pros

    Many external collaborators, auditors and vendors have basically summed it up, "Everyone here is so cheerful!"

    As corny as it sounds, it's true. The workplace is comprised of friendly, hard-working, intelligent individuals who cooperate and innovate to contribute to a product we stand by: providing personalized medicine to patients with cancer. At every quarterly all-hands meeting we get to meet and learn the story behind an actual patient whose life was changed as a result of using Genomic Health's ODX Breast product.

    By all other standard performance metrics, Genomic Health does just as well. Career advancement and development opportunities are encouraged. Clear, honest communication and a surprising amount of corporate visibility is the example set by upper management that serves as a template for interpersonal exchanges. Compensation is seriously deliberated upon, with emphasis on remaining competitive within the industry and equitable inside the organization. Along these lines, recognition, feedback and bonuses are linked to applaud the commitment employees have to meeting challenges with enthusiasm.

    Cons

    As Genomic Health continues to grow, typical business growing pains surface: new organizational structures, increased documentation requirements, and a dilution of communication. Given these challenges, Genomic Health is taking a proactive approach by maintaining a culture of truth seeking and honest feedback and a willingness to be flexible in how the organization grows while continuing to progress toward clear, short- and long-term goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new employee breakfast with Randy was a great experience. I appreciated the opportunity to learn first-hand about his vision and motivations behind starting the company. Maintaining the connection between upper management and task-based employees is a challenge as companies grow, but I'd encourage Randy and the executive team to keep in touch with everyone. There's a lot to be said about feeling visible (and accountable) in an organization.
