    Current Employee - Principal Engineer in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Nothing more than you have a job.

    Cons

    Too much stress, Quality VP and Mfg VP has no faith on their own appointed Directors. Micro management at highest extent . Too much pressure on Dir, Mgr and Engineers. MFG maintains a score card for operators if they make mistakes to scare employees they can be fired if they do mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other than Quality and Ops VPs other, CEO and other VPs are excellent.
    Quality and Ops VPs needs to learn from other Sr mgmt. CEO Dan Moore needs work towards taking good initiatives to improve this Quality and Ops leadership.

    a company to watch out for...

    Current Employee - Therapeutic Consultant (Sales Representative )
    Current Employee - Therapeutic Consultant (Sales Representative )

    I have been working at Cyberonics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    salary for sales reps can be very high

    Cons

    company is shady. sales reps are always worried they will lose their jobs, they stay because they make good money and they put up with the culture of fear. The reps who stay take part in shady practices to hit their loft goals(read the Hargarty Lawsuit). The company says in their annual report that majority of their business is from PRIVATE pay pts; that is NOT true. Majority of business(80% plus) comes from medicare/medicaid. Company is corrupt.... higher management needs to be scrutin

    Pros

    Good benefits and ok salary.

    Cons

    The Clinical Engineer position is advertised as a core development position. In reality, the people in this position will NOT get promoted and are continuously under stress due to high workload. The management ask employee to participate in "outside" projects on top off working 50+ hours. Many people with high hope and positive attitude will take on more projects (now working 60+ hours); however, when it comes to transferring, the CTS management opposes such a move. This is partly due to very high turn over of the team. In the past 2 years alone, 11 people have quit, 2 managed to transfer to clinical quality engineer (after being with cyberonics for 3+ years), and 1 person (after 2.5 years) transferred to quality engineering group. This position may be "ok" for a new desperate BME graduate but I highly recommend looking for another position immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the development plan (which is done annually) happen for the CTS members within 12 to 16 months. Also, increase the number of workforce so that the team doesn't hurt when one person quits.

    I worked at Cyberonics full-time

    Pros

    good salary.
    good benefits.
    Helping people with one terrible disease to get their life back.

    Cons

    Everyone is terrified of loosing their job; this leads to the most stressed atmosphere anywhere. Everyone is very overworked so *no* team work.
    Managers that change their orders so often, they can always report, "I told him..."
