    I worked at Ventana Medical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to begin a career. Good learning opportunity.

    Cons

    All the good talent has left or is in the process of leaving. Roche and management has killed any innovation left in this company. Downsizing and centralizing of departments to Roche headquarters will limit your advancement if you plan on staying in Tucson.

    Pros

    Products provide superior staining, making for fast and reliable patient diagnosis. Produts are considered "top of the line". Impressive technical apptitude from the support staff.

    Cons

    Poor managment. Technicians are are given all the responsibilities with none of the authority for most situations. Expected to put company before family. Employees are asked to provide ways to improve operations, but when they do, thery are chastised and reprimanded for not being a "team player". In short, the company structure is a "Comedy of Contradictions".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees manage themselves. Trust that the people who are doing the work, know how to do it best (that is why you hired them in the first place, right?).

    Pros

    Product line in a important and growing area of healthcare. Strong competitive position.

    Cons

    Culture of undermining others as a way of getting ahead. A zero sum game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk.
