    I have been working at Proteus Digital Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From day one, I felt my opinion mattered and when I want to learn more or take on other projects I am allowed to, which is very important to me personally and professionally. I’ve participated in growth development classes offered here at Proteus and truly feel I have learned from these pieces of training and have expanded my skills.

    The work-life balance at Proteus is practiced. Recognition is a huge part of our culture and I believe this fosters retention, promotions, as well as employees, simply rising to the occasion.

    I appreciate working with people from all different backgrounds because that brings tremendous diversity when it comes to ideas, innovation, and perspective. People at Proteus, as a whole, are humble, egoless, brilliant and welcoming.

    The vision and product of Proteus are one that I feel is going to change lives as well as how we view medicine, and I am proud to be a part of this company.

    Cons

    Like all companies, they go through growing pains which are inevitable. I would rather go through those growing pains with Proteus than any other company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster growth, recognition and learning for it is much appreciated.

    Pros

    The PEOPLE. This was told to me multiple times in my interview process, but now living in it I wholeheartedly agree. Environment was a huge factor for me making the move and the recruiting team's ability to gauge if I'd be a good fit with the people I'd be working with was on point! Everyone continues to be very helpful as well even 3 months into the job and I have really enjoyed every day I've come into the office thus far.

    Cons

    No deal breakers. I think just to continue the momentum of bridging the two Hayward and Redwood City offices so they're more unified and to continue to be inclusive of all employees whether they are contractors, full-time, part-time, etc.

    Corporate management structure, lack of quality decision making, uninspiring office, too much process

    Advice to Management

    Execute to a strategic time plan that doesn't change every 12 months, empower people to do their jobs/fulfil their roles, accept you don't know the detail and be happy that other people do/can make the right decisions, realize that a well designed product offering is more than aligning to a regulatory strategy, understand the value of your business is the quality and commitment of your staff

    Pros

    The only reason to work here if you live locally and don’t like to deal with the crappy traffic.

    Cons

    Shift supervision are a joke all they do is speak their languages and backstab people daily. The products work sometimes and most of the time is test test test and no results. Turnovers are more than selling the product....

    Advice to Management

    Sell it so a larger company can make something out of it.
    You try that with a large Japanese firm and they laugh at you.

    The company is not only working on a very innovative and futuristic product but if successful has potential to save and enhance life quality for humankind. The mood in the company is very upbeat due to the recent FDA approval. And who doesnt like free lunches and snacks :)

    Cons

    The startup like culture can make work chaotic sometimes.

    Pros

    The company can raise nearly limitless money. The company was incorporated 17 years ago and is still able to raise hundreds of millions easily.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of turnover in the company. Teams fight each other often and there is a lot of backstabbing while teams try to look better than other parts of the company. HR often has to get involved.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many directors who can't deliver results. They try to make themselves look good by belittling other teams. If the culture continues in this direction, you will lose everyone who is actually delivering.
