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.

    I have been working at Dexcom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting technology.
    Can learn a lot with initiative.
    Reasonable life/work balance.

    Cons

    If you are in the favored clique there is no accountability, you can fail miserably and never suffer any consequences.
    If you are outside the favored clique, no matter how much you produce, you will never get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for them to change. They are managing the company to sell it. The hand writing is on the wall.

    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.
