The company is very inefficient. The functional group in the core team are all telling how the other group should do their job but never able to deliver their deliverables. And they do not know how to do product development at all..... There is a DBS group that try to implement continuous improvement process in place but the middle management don't understand y so they never implemented it right.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Work can be suck if you are in a bad team

There are unique times in ones career that you come up on a company that does amazing work with a purpose as well as invests in your personal & professional growth, Cepheid has that. Over the last 4 years I've seen Cepheid evolve from a good to great workplace. I trust my team mates, leadership at the top walk the talk, and there are tons of opportunity for learning and development. Oh and of course, our products are AMAZING!!! :)
Pros
High growth, great culture
Cons
Work hard, play hard (maybe not such a bad thing)

As a former employee, all I can say is that it's good to work for this company just like any other company out there. Similar good benefits. You can earn to increase your rate of pay every other year depending on your performance to the department I was. Great co workers and just like I said this company is BIG and still growing.

Through out my years working in Accounting, this is the only company that has a very strong team-work culture. I learned a lot from my team-mates. The management is supportive to the regular employees ONLY. If you are a contractor, you're invisible to them and they don't acknowledge your hard work.

Fact growing company needs more investment in infrastructure. The management provides advancement opportunities but needs to pay more attention to team building and reduce favoritism in general

Cepheid Inc is a good place to work so far. It used to have ESPP before Danaher. It has very good culture to work with and management listens to ideas and suggestions. Open door policy is in all departments. Pretty much work/life balance and fixable schedule to work.

Great products and business strategy. I was proud to work for a company that made a difference in patient healthcare. There is definitely an expectation to work long hours and be available at all hours of the day/night.

Testing and paperwork can become overwhelming, don't be afraid to ask for help. If there is someone who can help, they will.
Always plan ahead of time or you will fall behind with production testing.

Rotating schedule when I was there, did not get to see family much due schedules. Ok if you live in town. Benefits are good though. Pay is so-so. Might be better now.
