    I have been working at Genomic Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Genomic Health is the first company I worked for after college and it's been a wonderful stepping stone in my career. I'm surrounded by colleagues I can learn from and have a boss that cares about my personal development. The company is always evolving that work isn't redundant and there is always new challenges. Excellent company culture and execs/management are welcoming and kind.

    Cons

    There is a wish for more perks - better carpool options, free meals, more team offsides.
    Five buildings makes it hard to travel from meeting to meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep having faith in your employees and trust them to do good work.
