    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Sales, If you exceed plan; which is very difficult, you can make good money.

    Cons

    My sales increase in goal was 80% year over year. Sales Management pressures and threaten reps that cannot hit the an absurd goal. If you enjoy lots of pressure and having your job constantly threatened this is the job for you.

    I worked at Cepheid full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a company where you can grow and change your position. I worked there 10 year with good and bad moment but when you take a look on the entire period my evolution inside was great. Salary are not too bad but not always aligned on the market and hard to negociate in a second time : remember to negociate hardly when you arrive after it will be too late.

    Cons

    Management decisions often seems to be out of reality, and not enough explain to employees, then not agreed and it generate tension.
    Company grow fast then it take time to complete human ressources and when they arrive it's already too late.
    Too much and complicated procedures kills efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, listen to them, consider them as human and not only working tools. Thanks them and achieve their expectations they will thank you by giving more and achieve YOUR expectations faster, better, and with pleasure.
