    Noble mission and talented team, but plenty of challenges and not enough resources to overcome them.

    I have been working at Volcano Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    From the top down, the employees here are really talented, nice, hard-working, and care about the company's success. Everyone seems committed to the company's goal of helping patients live better lives.

    Cons

    Working here leaves me with more questions than answers about how senior management is running the company. If we are making almost 400 million dollars each year, we should have enough money to do things right like competitive compensation, training opportunities, or more career growth. The promotion process is mysterious. I wish the rewards would match the efforts and care given.

    Pros

    This company has growing pains like all mid-size companies. But, all things considered, it's a solid team who strive to improve the lives of patients.

    Cons

    Workloads can be intense, as resources are tight. Difficulty in prioritizing projects over the long term. Lots of juggling required to be successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing and evolving as we transition from a small company to a big company.

    I worked at Volcano Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Volcano work environment was energetic and fast paced.
    Strong and aggressive sales & marketing organization consistently grew revenue.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities depended on which product you worked.
    Volcano had poor track record of commercializing acquired technologies in part because of under-resourcing product development teams.
    Many middle managers added little value to Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moderate increased staffing levels of product development teams would lead to more commercialization wins. Improved training of middle management would lead to higher retention and better engaged workforce.

    Could find better leadership than the ones who were at B.S. during the under-reported fatalities being investigated by the FDA.
