      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at TearLab

      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 for more than 4 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...

      I worked at TearLab

      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.

      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.
