    I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Always a party or happy hour. Just when you think you hate your job, there's a party or some free schwag to bring you back up. A company that takes care of you, true to motto of Patients first, extremely dedicated employees especially at assembler/operator level in Operations.

    Cons

    Engineers spend majority of time on paperwork. Poor planning/strategy causes priorities to change daily. Marketing input valued more than best manufacturing practices. Rush for regulatory submissions often results in not the best solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VPs, what do your Directors actually do all day?
