    Pros

    Great company overall. Employee oriented management. Classes and courses are constantly offered to improve the competitiveness of their employees.

    Cons

    Bad management decisions for past couple of years reflected some antagonism on mgmt level. It was much better 3 years ago.

    Pros

    I worked on a really strong technical team that taught me a lot. Overall it was a really friendly work environment.

    Cons

    There seemed to be very limited room for career advancement. Most of the managers and senior engineers had been there quite some time and I wasn't able to see a clear growth path.

    Advice to Management

    Highlight area for career advancement for more junior employees. Potentially lay out a possible career path at the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice people, committment to excellence, nice working conditions,.Highly ethical

    Cons

    The company is constantly in a state of change. Always trying to re-invent themselves. Good intentions, few real sucesses. When they have a real success, they tend to rest on their laurals.

    Advice to Management

    Give the customers what they want. Don't make products first and then tell the customer this is what they need.

    Pros

    Rewarding job making imaging equipment to help patients. Opportunity for travel and working with international colleagues/vendors.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganizations, company losing business share to GE and other healthcare leaders. Faced with hiring freeze a few times.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core products instead of diversifying to meet all markets. While trying to build the best product, budget was not considered and we priced ourselves out of interested customers' range.

    Pros

    Good benifits better than average pay

    Cons

    Not much room for upward mobility career wise. Manament tends to be more paperwork focused than on the actual job. Hard to cross into other modalities once your hired system seems to be structured to keep you doing the same job same work until you retirement or you leave for other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Development of your current employees we can do more than just turn a wrench.
