    Great Products! Greater Mission! The best is yet to come!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany and the commitment team members have is the reason people stay for a long time. Best group of people I have found to work with in my over 40 years of working. Company is changing the culture somewhat to attract early/mid career talent which seems to be working. Engineering has a great leader and a good management team. Love the fact the Bain is making such an investment in products and their people.

    ConsThe problems that the company has are easily solved with time, patience and some money to solve them. Leadership seems to be embracing change that will benefit the company and moving it forward.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be open to change, as you listen to your people. Keep the faith, large ships turn slowly.

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

    Great Outlook for this Medical Technology Company.

    (Current Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsGreat HR department and work life balance. The company has a cafeteria, a gym, and many other amenities. Company is going through some additional growing pains, so as long as they continue to hire quality, team members with good positive attitude, they should be fine ( a few rotten apples can ruin the whole tree).

    ConsTypical things associated with a company thats growing and making positive changes. But positive outlook outweighs the temporary growing pains.

    Advice to Senior Management-Continue to hire only quality, positive, educated personel through university intermship programs & other quality channel specific means (avoiding channels such as Monster.com and Careerbuilder.com types). Continue to strengthen compliance/reputation through training of team members and a strong LEGAL department thats proactive.

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

    Mission and Products Make You Proud of the Company You Work For

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsHelping to make life-saving products is very rewarding in and of itself. The company itself has good benefits and there are departments in the company that are great to work for.

    ConsSame challenges as most companies. Lack of communication between the departments, lack of clear overall product direction and synergy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProduct direction should have similarities between the different lines that needs to be directed from the top down.

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

    Great Products and People

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsProducts that help people and save lives.

    ConsProjects move slow, but are getting better

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake things happen in months, not years. If its a good project don't nickle and dime it to death, put in a realistic budget and GET IT DONE

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

    Overall a good place to work, shipping products that save lives is very rewarding.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLife saving products
    Positive culture and values
    Reasonable work/life balance

    ConsFDA has made it a very tough environment with a lot of overhead
    Now owned by BAIN capital so will likely be sold again. Not necessarily bad just uncertain.
    Unrealistic expectation for outsourced resources
    Management sometimes places blame rather than solving the problems

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic about the overhead when outsourcing project work. Hold whoever makes the decision accountable for results.

    One of the better companies I've worked at.

    Service Department (Former Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsThe work is always very interesting. The people are pleasant to be co workers along side. Compensation was good. Health Benefits were good.

    ConsNo all management conveyed direction well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare the overall direction of the company better. Give direction to individual departments better so their responsibilites and goals are better mapped out.

    Internship experience

    Operations Intern (Current Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsGreat internship program with an emphasis on a summer long project

    ConsTough for a graduated senior to get hired on right after your internship. Its best if you have a few more quarters of school left so they can get a position lined up for you.

    Best if it is Physio-Control

    Senior Quality Assurance (Current Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsFriendly, Feel like family, Senior Managements are very open. If you have Physio-Control on your resume, it is very easy to move to other companies. (Including Boeing)

    ConsSmall Raise. Some first level Managers are very stupid. If the company stay independent, it is a very good company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe independent again as Physio-Control

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    feed good about the work you do, despite the chaos

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsMaking a life-saving product makes you feel good at the end of the day, every day. The health care benefits are the best I've ever had - since the company makes medical devices, they have paid 100% for various medical devices needed by my family (custom orthotics, etc.). Salary and bonuses are more than adequate, especially in today's market. Immediate management makes sure team members are adequately compensated, and the need for personal time and family life is recognized.

    ConsThere is no clear organizational structure. The senior management seems to be out of touch with the many challenges faced daily by those doing the work. There are too many products to manage well. The processes are constantly changing and there is no way to find out what process you are expected to follow on any given day. You can spend a lot of time just trying to find out who is responsible for making a decision, only to find out that no one will take responsibility.

    Advice to Senior Managementsimplify, simplify, simplify - pick one thing and do it well

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
