I have been working at Cepheid full-time (Less than a year)
I've been with Cepheid less than a year, but thus far I love it. The work that's being done at this company truly makes a difference in healthcare around the world. I am surrounded by really brilliant people and that's inspiring. They are committed far more to continual innovation than to lining people's pockets. Even though the company has been around for a long time, there's a lot of new changes happening and so it sort of has a start-up feel as we're trying to catch up to everything. The work is challenging and rewarding. I am given a runway to do what I feel is best for my role without having someone look over my shoulder - they trust their employees to succeed.
The combination of quick growth and integrating with a parent company can make it hard for a company to find and develop it's "culture" or it's rhythm. There are a lot of things we're all figuring out as we go, but I think once we get there it will be great!
Advice to Management
Interact with your teams all the way down to the entry-level. That will help keep everyone on board!
I applied online. I interviewed at Cepheid.
Applied online, after two weeks got an email from the hr for scheduling a phone interview. The phone interview was just a walk through the resume. after a week got an onsite scheduled, again rescheduled by the interviewer. The onsite interview was bit tough.
