Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Company makes a product, and only has 1 competitor. This means it's not going anywhere, anytime soon, i.e. stable job. Benefits are also good, pay was decent.

Cons

Silo'd environment, very difficult to communicate with other departments, and very difficult to communicate up the ladder as well. Understaffed and overworked in some departments, leading to high burnout and turnover. Poor management. It would've been nice to at least get a cost of living raise in the 3 years that I was there. No room for upward movement.

Advice to Management

Good culture starts from the top down...if you want your employees to be happy, you need to make that part of the multitude of other priorities that you're responsible for. Yes it is an additional load to ask for, but much needed. It's probably too late though, since Dexcom has been public for several years now and is responsible to the board and shareholders.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Dexcom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits for entry level work.

    Cons

    No accountability. No teamwork. Everyone just passes the buck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on side jobs. Promote from within rather than only promoting temps. Make changes rather than saying it's a work in progress. Stop allowing people to get away without pulling their own weight.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dexcom as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company produces a great product with great intentions and I believe they have a bright future ahead of them if they can stay ahead of the curve.

    Cons

    Bigger Incentives for employees would promote a better morale and stronger work ethic. There was a mild sense of complacency when I interned there primarily because the expectation was to meet expectation not to exceed them. There was no incentive for excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Offer incentives for meeting deadlines earlier, improving cohesion between work groups, and demonstrating excellence. The CEO and Senior Management need to connect with their staff to understand the current problems with work group cohesion (from one group to another)
