    Pros

    The work is nothing hard or difficult at all.

    Cons

    Could be an excellent place to work but there is a large amount of "southern problems" and the buddy buddy system runs rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Look after you employees that actually do the work and don't burn them out because of your buddy that does nothing......

    Pros

    Tools, training, vehical provided to do the work

    Cons

    Low pay, advancement to next pay grade was a joke. Manufacturing moved to Mexico, every new piece I worked on from there was junk a call almost once a week. My area was left without a tech for several months so needless to say none of the PM's got done and if you don't do the PM's on steris equip you're f'ed.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being so greedy. Let Americans know when you bring our jobs back

    Pros

    Excellent Work-Life Balance with great hours

    Cons

    Very old fashioned organization with males in all key roles. Good old boy system with executives choosing their successors decades in advance of their retirement. Selections are relationship based versus performance based. Poor performing employees are kept around.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your workers. Diversify your executive team. Top-grade poor performers.

    It's a good job to have, and would be a great job if it were with a competent company with competent management.

    Pros

    Good field to work in, great customer base, good job in spite of company, several decent perks, pay is adequate, plenty of time off available in theory

    Cons

    Ever-increasing stress primarily comes from company, not from job/customers, company constantly at cross purposes with actual job, constant bad decisions made by bean counters or other non-field workers, continually more irrelevant additional requirements given even though job itself has always been the same, never-ending grief from all levels of management and/or general bureaucracy for a myriad of perceived compliance failures, time off very difficult to actually take without hoops to jump through and major stress, understaffed, ever-changing and usually contradictory goals/rules/priorities

    Advice to Management

    SIMPLIFY, back off, provide real incentives, find out what job actually is in the field, be realistic, get out of bed with the government, and make products that sales and techs can be proud to present and service.
