    I worked at Genomic Health full-time

    Pros

    Pay was ok. Benefits were average.

    Cons

    There may have been some Execs who didn't listen to the employees' concerns. There had been some history of employees with cancer being pushed out. It was the subject of an article in Forbes Magazine online and i heard about it from fellow employees.

    I worked at Genomic Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are decent and management do seem to care about employees' well-being. The domain (genomic diagnostics) is very interesting (and difficult). Co-workers are generally pretty nice people.

    Cons

    Quality of employees vary significantly. Too many dead weights. Poor management of IT initiatives resulted in resources wasted. IT department is too large for a non-software company. IT managers seem to be more interested in building fiefdoms than delivering great services. Professional advancements often are not based on quality of work, competence and merit but on who's better politically. As mentioned... above, management do seem to care about employees, but not very efficient (see dead weights above). R&D lack true scientific leadership and that resulted in failure in launching new products.

    Advice to Management

    To CEO: Your company has a great mission and is an industry leading company. Great job! For the next step, hire truly great scientific folks to lead your R&D and product development. In my opinion, the current R&D and product development top team is too insecure to hire truly great people to achieve major scientific and product breakthrough.

    Pros

    Lots of good people I enjoyed working with. Products help patients while saving insurance companies money!

    Cons

    Trying to sell the business, so it's about numbers. Laid off 10% of the staff, which is a moral killer. Made a bad bet which hurt the bottom line.

    Thanks for being part of our journey over the last 8 years. It's always been about the patient and that will never change. Prioritizing growth in IVD is a strategic move helps the company to thrive long-term and help patients with cancer. While some employees were impacted by this ...

    Pros

    The culture was great. The product is very useful and the company cares about its patients. Overall, I enjoyed working at GHI.

    Promotions are not merit based but instead they are given due to favoritism. The company is losing great talent due to the lack of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Promote accordingly and listen to your employees.

    Great cancer products -breast, colon and prostate cancer assay

    Cons

    Politics everywhere; flat organization- promotions in some of the teams is based on how well you socialize with your manager and not how ell you do your job

    Advice to Management

    The C suite is out of touch with the business.
