I worked at Insulet Corporation (More than 3 years)

Pros

The product is a great innovation.
Salary and bonus are good until you decide to play the game or not, then it can e sweet or sour, depending on choice.

Cons

Prepare for a Poisonous atmosphere where most middle-management and all the senior management plays the CYA game while back-stabbing, finger pointing, and blaming each other. Morale suffers, and the only happy people are the headhunters who supply the next round of cannon-fodder for the Insulet shredder. The turnover rate, especially in Quality, is stupendous. The product isn't the only thing that Insulet considers to be disposable - so are the employees!

The product has a 5% out-of-box failure rate and their solution is to send a new box to anyone who complains, cover up the complaint, and then wonder why they aren't making any money. Hence the "Blame Game" and all the periodic layoffs.

The product is made in China so all defects can be handled locally without "Federal" knowledge. Distribute the defects evenly so there's an average 5% failure rate and nobody's the wiser. Play along and you'll get a nice bonus. Don't play and get "laid off."

Research their profit and loss before signing on!

Advice to Management

No amount of advice or type of advice will help - the senior management is either playing the game or being paid to keep quiet.

    I have been working at Insulet Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good product
    Fairly flexible with schedules
    Good benefits (with some room for improvement)

    Cons

    Lots of upper management (2 VPs of HR at the time of writing this, in a company that isn't that big)
    Little to no room for growth
    Manufacturing overseas is very frustrating
    Very little training about how the device actually works.

    Advice to Management

    Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. That's really it other than train people better about the function of the device itself.
