    I have been working at Insulet Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Insulet is a fast paced and growing company with products that really save lives for both Type 1 and 2 Diabetics and cancer patients as well. The senior management team genuinely care about patients and employees. Employees at all levels of the company are motivated to do their best for the products and the patients we serve. I truly think it's a great place and a wonderful opportunity for anyone wanting to join a company...

    Cons

    I maybe stating the obvious, but it's a fast growing company and that means things change, evolve, and hopefully improve. People who don't like change need not apply. But... if you want to work somewhere that you can make a huge positive impact to both patients and the organization- come aboard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working on training leaders to be receptive to changing and evolving processes.

      Pros

      Helping diabetics understand their situation.

      Cons

      Discriminatory management. They put the cart before the horse all the time and expect lower level staff to “figure it out” while micromanaging them. They have forced the entire inside sales staff to work in non-OSHA compliant headquarters. Their headquarters, that was non OSHA compliant, actually had feces and urine pouring up through the sales floor and expected the team to continue working there. Their inside sales...

      Advice to Management

      Stop putting the cart before the horse. Stop “building the plane while flying it”. Stop discriminating against those with disabilities and diverse backgrounds. Hire someone to train and motivate your staff. Stop putting 23 year old children in management positions. Their brains have not finished developing. What makes you think they will have any idea how to manage?

      Pros

      The product is great to sell and you really feel like you’re helping patients and customers in a great way

      Cons

      The leadership team is founded on nepotism. They’ve created a pretty toxic sales environment.

      Advice to Management

      Your field sales employees wouldn’t leave every 18 months if you treated them like people.

      Strong team based environment. Excellent facilities. Effective Management.

      Cons

      Sometimes ask too much of employees. Very risk adverse. Needs better long term focus.

      I have been working at Insulet Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The product makes such a huge difference in so many lives, with potential to impact many more. There are many projects going on at any one time, so there’s plenty of opportunity to learn.

      Cons

      The company is experiencing growing pains, which is not unusual. As I’ve learned over the years, every company (as do most relationships) has their own version of dysfunction, it’s just a matter of whether or not you can live with your company’s particular dysfunction, and, hopefully, be an agent for positive change. From my perspective, there is some truth in all of the recent reviews, both the positive and negative...

      Advice to Management

      Do more to keep your talented and passionate employees from leaving. Many high potential employees in my department have left the company recently for well-deserved promotions.

      Pros

      As a whole, the team of people from the senior executive team down is truly a great team of people. Approachable, friendly, fair, but with high expectations. The brand new, state-of-the-art facility is beautiful with room to expand. The location in Acton is super convenient and near eateries, gas stations, shopping, activities and living. And finally, the product is unique and truly live-saving and makes coming to work...

      I worked at Insulet Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Excellent product and currently the only real tubeless pump on the market. The clinical advantages far outweigh the higher ongoing price. Nice new office in Acton. Bright spot is the Re-Order team if you are lucky enough to get a position there (strong director, strong senior management, well trained/competent Supervisors).

      Cons

      Unfortunately a lot of cons. Favoritism is rampant in most departments. You don't get promoted on merit, you get promoted by kissing the right butt. Good and tenured people are leaving because they don't want to lessen themselves and follow that route. Because of this, the wrong people get promoted into roles they aren't ready for and don't understand. Leads to a lot of unnecessary micro managing and frustrated...

      Advice to Management

      Stop being terrible? Hold yourself accountable to the same standards you hold your reps (show up on time, avoiding blocked days off, caring about your job and other human beings besides yourselves). This used to be such a good company, people really liked coming to work and interacting with the patients and their peers. Now everyone is dead eyed and afraid to speak up . The Senior Team (CEO, CFO, COO) really needs...
