    I worked at Insulet Corporation for 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 for more than a year

    Pros

    Good opportunity to help providers help their patients.

    Cons

    No worklife balance. Stock price is most important. “Just ship it” and “rents due” is company motto. Monthly goals make job a rat race. Huge disconnect from senior leadership and field.

    Advice to Management

    Consider leadership decisions to cultivate environment that makes people want to stay. Also make up your mind, are we a device company or a pharma company. We can’t be both.
