    I have been working at ArthroCare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loads of experience. More good people than hard to work with types. Most people fun to be around.

    Cons

    No celebration after product launches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send your underlings to shows, product launches etc. after they worked so hard to get the product out. They should be able to attend the shows etc. as well and take in some of the celebration that only the management get to indulge in. Yes, everyone feels the same way.

    I have been working at ArthroCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology that improves people's lives. It feels good working for a company whose products can improve outcomes in surgery. I've been able to move up and feel like I'm making a difference to the company.

    Cons

    FDA issues (now behind us) and now being bought out by Smith & Nephew leaves everyone wondering what is going to happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees. They are the backbone of the company.

    I have been working at ArthroCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for not difficult work. Mostly good people. Only some nepotism and cronyism. Management as a whole is probably a little clueless.

    Cons

    Company is being bought out and most everyone in Austin will lose their jobs. It's a pity, because as jobs go, it wasn't that bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of my advice would fall on deaf ears - I'm not even sure anyone in management is aware of what Glassdoor does or is for.

    I worked at ArthroCare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Superior R&D Department, Involved Management, Cutting edge research and technology

    Cons

    Slow to respond or even listen to the field sales force, errant pre-conceived notions about marketing and implementation of new devices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more closely to the fallout that sales tries to share with management to avoid future identical problems for the other associates.
