    Good company unfortunately being swallowed up by a larger rival.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with your employees. They are the backbone of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent place to work, but won't be around long.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Austin, TX

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

    ConsCompany 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 Senior ManagementMost 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A progressive company on the forefront of Medical Technology

    Regional Sales (Former Employee) Las Cruces, NM

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

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros- supportive environment where creativity is fostered and respect dolled out
