    "Former Employee"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    It was a small knit company and those who got along, got along like family.

    Cons

    The new CEO is terrible and is a glorified sales person who doesn't care about the well being of the company or the employees. Greed wins for this company.

    I worked at TearLab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In 2014 the company was great! They promoted from within and had great leadership at the top. The technology was cutting edge.

    Cons

    In 2015 the company culture took a turn for the worst when new upper management was put into place. We began to loose valuable people at all levels because of one person. I also believe that this person was responsible for the huge layoff that took place in 2016. This used to be a wonderful place to work but not anymore. I feel bad for those who are still left to carry the heavy burden now and have to continue working for someone who has an evil spirit.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck to you that are good people. I hope you can see who the Cancer is before its too late.

    Pros

    Casual dress code, free coffee

    Cons

    They promote values that they do not honor. They let tenured employees go and others are terminated for no reason and without documentation. HR is definitely there for the company and not the employee. Don't listen to the recruiter, they are in it to get you hired. Once hired treated poorly. Really bad sales department.

    Advice to Management

    Train management, including VPs and above how to have relationships with their employees.

    I worked at TearLab full-time

    Pros

    Some of the original executives had best intentions - unfortunately they were often the reason things didn't get done.

    Cons

    There were some but nothing to intense. Some employees there should have never been hired.
