    Pros

    Great company name, diverse line of products, great amenities: basketball, gym, cafe, locker room/showers, and always enough work to keep you mentally stimulated

    Cons

    Welcome to the 50/60 hour work week and barely competitive pay. Edwards grew too quickly and was not able to support such growth with capable management.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the culture does not foster/encourage work-life balance

    Pros

    I was paid a good wage considering the work I did. They offered good benefits. They have a gym at the work place.

    Cons

    If you work in a call center of any sort, you know that calls handled matters but it doesn't seem to at Edwards. Management doesn't seem to know how to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Employee moral programs are only effective if performed at all locations. "Fair" should also be uniform across all locations.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and lots of fun, educated co-workers. Ability to travel and be involved with global operations. Clean work environment.

    Cons

    Corporate politics at play - it's more about who you know and winning them over vs. demonstrating solid performance. Overwhelming amount of procedures are in force given it is a regulated industry.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach - attract and retain key talent!

    Pros

    It a great company if you are contract directly with them. Because I am working there thru a temporary agency we are not allow to have benefits with them even including Christmas celebrations.

    Cons

    To get all department to work as a team is a big challenge there. If they understand that then I am sure will be the best environment there and successful company. Because we all are the company quality.

    Advice to Management

    The best thing is to educate all personnel to understand that their job is part of a puzzle and if we do this in a safe and happy understanding environment then all employee groups or areas will have same positive results.
