    Pros

    Great to see that your work helps in saving lives.
    Not too much politics.
    Friendly people.
    You learn a lot.
    Talented people.

    Cons

    Priorities change too often.
    Main reason for people leaving is they get burnt out from too much work.
    Management is a little disconnected.
    Insurance premium keeps going up.
    Annual salary increase is 2% of you meet expectation (hard to keep up with inflation).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more engineers.
    Connect with employees.
    Stop treating every project like an emergency.

    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Danvers, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Danvers, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ABIOMED in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position and then LinkedIn with the recruiter, sent him an email. Received an email shortly thereafter about scheduling a phone screen. I responded with several days of available times. No response. Several days go by and I email respond again. The following day I receive an email from someone else saying they'd like to skip the phone and do an on site. I go to the on site and first meet with their admin to find out she is the one leaving At this point I'm thinking why am I here? This is not the position I applied for. I then met w/ the VP of HR who I really enjoyed, followed up by the HR Mgr. It quickly became apparent to me that I could run circles around her and they have no idea what level a HRBP is in most markets. If you're hiring an admin or junior level rep, say so. Needless to say, I was not offered the position. However, it took them more than 2 months to notify me - via SNAIL MAIL. Who does that? Most candidates want to know ASSP that they're not selected and this was really poor on their part.
    *Interview questions were not difficult but they're still very old school in their techniques and yes, interviews are held in the lobby conference room.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions asked were related to a much lower position than what I thought I was applying for.   View Answer

ABIOMED is no heartless company -- on the contrary, it helps troubled hearts regain their vigor. Its FDA-approved BVS 5000 and AB5000 ventricular assist devices products temporarily take over the heart's pumping function and improve circulatory flow in patients with acute heart failure, thus allowing their hearts to rest and recover. The company's Impella catheters and mini-heart pumps are used by interventional cardiologists to maintain circulation on patients with less severe heart disease. ABIOMED markets its products through both a direct sales force and distributors.
