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

    Pros

    Good reasons to work here are company's mission and its impact around the world. Company is in the midst of big strategic/execution changes (R&D, global organization) based on recent ownership change. Beautiful site/campus at HQ with tons of renovation going on.

    Cons

    Commute to the main site can be problematic unless you live nearby (cross-bridge commute from Seattle is a bear and getting worse - not the company's doing, but a factor.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up a satellte west side (Seattle) hoteling office for project teams to use from time to time and to recruit new talent from the NW biotech 'reactor core' neighborhood.

    Pros

    Making lifesaving tools, robust quality system in place, adequately staffed, good pay, bonus, onsite gym, onsite cafeteria, free beer on Thursday, etc...

    Cons

    A lot of paperwork to make changes, however, its similar to any medical device company.

    Big enough to create opportunity, yet small enough to create community.
