    Pros

    Great culture, decent pay and benefits, good work/life balance, stable revenues

    Cons

    Out of control IT department that thinks we're blessed to be in their presence. Always talking back, creating 10 hurdles for every little task, and never knowing their part.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the IT department

    Pros

    Good culture, reasonable work-life balance, intelligent group of people, good benefits (401k, health, stock grants)

    Cons

    highly dependent on a single product which could be worrisome if they lose market share. Though they may have developed new technologies and products since my departure

    I have been working at Genomic Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Intelligent coworkers Strong mission and core values Interesting and challenging work Good work-life balance Very competitive pay and vacation/holiday benefits Friendly culture and management makes you feel valued Good mix of some executives who have been with the company for 10+ years, for continuity, and some great new hires who can bring in fresh ideas and perspectives.

    Cons

    No place is perfect. There are a few annoyances, but the pros far outweigh the cons. 401K match is minimal Very few perks, e.g. poor food choices, low travel and recognition expense budgets . Decision making at the top can be slow and decisions are sometimes poorly communicated. IT group is severely bloated and ineffective and has been for years.

    Advice to Management

    More timely decision-making and stronger communication of decisions. Better understand the IT organization and its issues and do something about it. Employees have been talking about these two issues for years. .

    Pros

    The company has a product that truly impacts patients' lives for the better. Employees are smart, dedicated and believe in the company mission. Benefits are great. There's a healthy work-life balance.

    Cons

    401k match needs improving. Cafeteria catering is really bad. There is poor modeling on the part of some managers when it comes to demonstrating the company's values we hear about in trainings.

    Advice to Management

    Always speak to your direct reports like you want your supervisor to speak to you. Improve the 401k match. Do something to improve the on-site lunch choices.
