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

Pros

Its an amazing product. If the company could move forward with how they treat employees than amazing things could happen for the company and product.

Cons

Management does not care about its employees. They are very nice to the level above them and try to sugar coat everything in order to make themselves look better. Rather then fixing problems and being honest the middle managers are only after advancing their own careers. Upper management is completely out of touch because middle management hides everything. Departments are becoming Silos rather then working together towards a common goal. Morale extremely low and the talented people are looking/leaving for companies that balance a hard work ethic with modern employee perks.

Advice to Management

If you were us would you really want to work here.... oh wait you have no idea whats happening and its unfortunately going to be the companies downfall which is such a shame.. If you have no real talented employees left then the monkeys take over.

Come on please realize there is a bunch of middle management with no experience in managing people and they are not actually doing well at managing people. If you have employees that are not encourages to ask questions then you never hear the simple resolutions to make your product and the company better.

    I have been working at Insulet Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Product is very differentiated. It will get selected even if nobody is selling it b/c of this differentiation. You can make decent money here if you just need a job. Good benefits. Product is what attracted me.

    Cons

    Now: Old School type management; 83% field management turnover; pharma-type management; A very toxic place to be. I'm looking to get out soon; everyone I know who is worth anything is trying to do the same. If you're thinking about applying, talk to someone who's been here longer than a year. It's a churn-and-burn company in a market dependent on long term relationships (doesn't match). The only hope is that treating people this way will catch up with them. Literally, if you try to voice an opinion, you'll be let go. If you're a good puppet or enforcer, this is the place for you because you will not be allowed to run your own business. Enforcing the countless new metrics is more important than thinking. No trust from the top down and between departments.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not writing this because I think mgmt will listen; I'm writing this as a warning to anybody thinking about coming over here. This place will not last long. Why would everyone from the same former company be hired when the former upper-management was replaced? Answer: because they brought people over who they know they can trust to fall in line and not question anything and for CYA. No morals; no values; you'll feel dirty. EVERYBODY is afraid to speak up even as they see the iceberg ahead. No diversity (especially absent is cognitive diversity). If you speak up or question, you're gone. Your merits as a manager will be based on how many people you can fire so you'll have an excuse for inevitable poor performance. No amount of money is worth treating people the way they want you to treat them. They put zero value on people. Everybody is replaceable, even if your #'s are good. More important to fit in and play the game. Toxic.

    Pros

    Life changing product; relaxed work environment;

    Cons

    Upper management phased out Inside Sales and added that work to Omnipod Specialist. The amount of work has increased significantly but compensation is unchanged. Bonus is determined by metrics that are often unattainable.

    Advice to Management

    Make compensation a priority instead of an afterthought. Inside Sales/Omnipod Specialist compensation should be closer to that of your outside field team.
