    I have been working at GN ReSound full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Human resources very proactive, and receptive to individual needs of employees. Tries very hard to mediate and establish a proactive repair plan for issue (s) at hand.

    Cons

    Employee moral is very low due to ongoing and pervasive petty and trivial treatment towards employees. Rampant favoritism abounds and negative verbal treatment from some supervisors unaddressed. Management will not address the concerns of thier employees. This ongoing dysfunction seems to catch on with newly promoted leads and supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating great employees like children at daycare. Stop patronizing and Listen and act on employee concerns..they are legit.

    Pros

    Work/family balance is important to this company. Coworkers are fantastic and with a few exceptions there is a lot of teamwork within and between different departments. The company is strong, growing, and makes excellent products.

    Cons

    Management doesn't tend to listen to suggestions or complaints made by employees. There seems to be quite a bit of distance between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You may want to keep in mind that those in direct contact with the customer are the ones who truly know what the customer wants. It would be worthwhile to listen to their suggestions a bit more closely.

    I have been working at GN ReSound full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Well compensated, very empowered to make decisions, extensive training. Great location, wonderful people to work with. The hours were normal business hours. After putting in 3 years the pto goes up which was generous.

    Cons

    politics. customer service department as a whole was looked down upon. No where to move up within the company. The position was very mundane, same thing everyday over and over, not very much variety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you get more out of employees with praise then with punishment. Sit with Customer Care at least once a year to find out what callers are calling in about.

    Good company dong good things, questionable management

    I have been working at GN ReSound full-time

    Pros

    The product helps improve the quality of life for many people with hearing loss. The people are generally competent and easy to work with. There is a tendency to push the envelope on technology, which is a good thing, since some of those technologies become a significant competitive advantage.

    Cons

    Management of certain aspects of the company are questionable with negative outcomes proving out bad decisions. As a Danish owned company there is a cultural bias towards group think. There are also some significant differences in how people are treated. There's a general sense of inequity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand and properly handle risk. Recognize and reward talent.

    I have been working at GN ReSound full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    people are generally loyal to the company and so is the company to the employees. There is a good company culture and relationship between the employees (at least in R&D). All this makes it a good place to work.

    Cons

    Salaries are fair but not among the highest. Yearly increase is rather modest and has not been following the increase in cost (buying food etc.). The ordinary employee does not have any extras like free car phone or anything like that. It might be different at manager and VP levels (and up). There is often a significant workload In R&D and you feel that more employees are needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put in more people so that they and the skilled people already in the company can develop their skills and thus continue the good job.

    Poor US Management

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at GN ReSound

    Pros

    Good pay relative to industry. Decent work / life balance. Good benefits and 401 K matching. Competent co workers (however see cons)

    Cons

    High turn over of the best staff. Not much room to grow or room for new ideas. Spirits of new staff crushed quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change entire US Sr Management staff. If that's not possible, at least eliminate the COO position as most of the US negativity comes form there.

    Keep in mind that competition is strong in the market and that a solid strategy is the only way to overcome that. Don't play catch up, lead
