    Assembler (Current Employee)
    Rancho Cordova, CA

    Prossince I am working in clean room, there was never a heavy lifting jobs; nice people on the lline

    Conscompany moving to oversea soon, there's no hope for all of us in manufacturing.

    Advice to Senior Managementproduction manager needs to get training on production processes instead of sitting in the office, and find the way firing people.

    Not a bad place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are great and so is middle management. Great product too!

    ConsSome members of upper management need to have a reality check; you can't treat your employees like kids and then expect adult reactions. We are all adults, let's behave accordingly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally look at your teams, not just take the word of the manager that reports to you. Improve the over-all benefits for employees.

    It was OK. A bit crazy & unorganized at times....

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsGreat technology. And the people are decent human beings.

    ConsI think "crazy & unorganized" says it all. I don't have an opinion "why" that is, or "what they need to do to fix it". It just is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee my "C & U" comments above.

    Not a bad company, but has problems

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsVery nice group of people, good work environment, generally a good place to work.

    Generally a good group of employees. Better than average in my opinion. Seems that the hiring screen is better than average.

    ConsI can only speak of the software development effort. Big problems here

    (Overly?)Ambitious product concept.

    Delivery (really, really) long overdue.

    The comments here from software engineers suggest that the management interference is the source of all the problems. Sorry guys, if the project were delivered more or less on time and met expectations, management wouldn't feel so inclined to interfere. Basically, the software development team has failed to deliver and the company has suffered accordingly.

    Advice to Senior Managementa) recognize that the software development team has failed to deliver.
    b) revisit all original assumptions - project scope, development practices, etc, etc.
    c) be willing to re-assign responsibilities to different people.
    d) actually, be willing to assign responsibilities. Most code doesn't have a copyright nor programmers name. It's unclear who's responsible for what, etc. etc. Basically business management 101 - blocking and tackling.

    Management is trying to do this, but they're two high level so their sort of flailing away. If they keep it up they might get lucky though - or maybe not.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast Pace environment

    (Current Employee)
    Rancho Cordova, CA

    ProsSome good people, helping patients, generally understanding of project delays / screw ups. Some departments are better than others. Salary is decent for Sacramento area.

    ConsTransfer of manufacturing to Costa Rica means limited future opportunity for most operations employees at the site.

    QA is more difficult to work with than similar sized medical device companies, lots of unwritten rules and processes which are more complicated than they need to be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvesting the millions spent on Costa Rica facility and process improvements before moving (to Costa Rica) into Rancho Cordova could have yielded similar profit if given the chance.
