    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Volcano Corporation (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was a nice work balance for the most part and at first. Not much more to say, although I did meet some good people here (that are looking for other positions). I really liked the CEO- he was very outgoing and personable and it wasn't uncommon to chat with him on a regular basis. He was very involved.

    Cons

    Benefits were good at first, but then in 2015 their benefits turned HORRIBLE, offering only very expensive health plans with huge out of pocket expenses. The office is very "clique-y" like high school and you will notice that many people you "report" to are nothing more than the manager's buddy (even when it comes to not even having a degree but doing clinical engineering work). Salaries are soooo low compared to rival companies. I left and found almost the exact same job but made an extra $30k a year just by switching companies (and that isn't an exaggeration either). Maybe a good place to start but not to stay. Also- overall there is very little feeling of being part of a "team." If a project you're working on is a success, upper management takes credit, gives very little recognition to those below, but if it is a failure, their idea of accountability is to blame whoever they can try and pin it on. Personal accountability is important but there is a lot of pointing fingers going on in their engineering/ coronary/ peripheral group. Upper management actually seems to know about leading, but their supervisors below them absolutely do not- My supervisor was one of the clique people and from day one, I felt uncomfortable even going to ask a question. Also, based on their "advancement criteria" they make it very hard to move up the ladder, so to speak. You will most likely go from level I, II and maybe III if they like you, but senior and princ levels are hired outside.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone is actually qualified for their "promotions" and end the clique-y and high school vibe that is spreading.
