    I have been working at Acist Medical Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is very down to earth and transparent with sharing information to employees. The executive leaders are real, inviting, and empowering. Culture is very much so focused on, and all leaders are rated bi-annually on how they instill a positive culture with their teams. The company strives on hiring the best talent, nothing less, and elevating employees to grow within their roles. The days are filled with hard work, collaboration, and lots of laughter. Truly a fun and welcoming organization. Excellent work life balance too whether it be the ability to work remotely or having flexible and encouraged days off. The company promotes from within more than any other organization I've worked for.

    Cons

    Only con would be the benefits. The benefits are great for those located in MN, but not as appealing to those in the field or other states.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. The EC team is strong and dependable and employees enjoy having an EC team that is so available, open, and engaged.

    I worked at Acist Medical Systems

    Pros

    Paid time of between Christmas and New Years is a major plus. The majority of the employees are great to work with. If you ever need a day brightener, walk to Production, someone down there will know how to cheer you up and put a smile on your face.

    Cons

    There are very few managers that actually have their employees' best interest in mind. Hidden agendas run through the building. From personal experience, I spoke with my direct manager, in confidence, and after I left, I had an employee approach me and informed me details of my conversation with my manager, and even more hurtful, discussions I had in a confidential setting with various Human Resources Personnel. The only way this employee would have found out, was getting the information directly those I spoke with in Confidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one likes untrustworthy management. Please spend more time developing the people at the bottom. Those are the people that make the Company. While Management makes the decisions, if you don't support the bottom more, you will lose them.

    I worked at Acist Medical Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice coworkers and nice workout area. The area the company was located in was nice too. It was next to a large shopping mall and restaurants.

    Cons

    Any kind of confidentiality or even the pretense of it does not exist. It wasn't unusual for several others at the company to know who was getting let go AND why long before the actual person was called in and walked out. Any kind of training at this company does not exist either. My training consisted of me getting signed up to read and get quizzed on several SOPs. That was it. My boss never sat down with me for training at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the year 2014 and not 1964. The company is ran like you'd expect to find one being ran in 1964.

    Pros

    Decent products, potential in pipeline, rewarding market space.

    Cons

    Seemingly clueless exec management. HR thrives on politics and gossip and cannot be trusted. Toxic environment. Unwilling to put necessary dollars behind execution of plan. Ability to advance your career there is nearly impossible unless you're part of the club and willing to play the politics game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember why you hired your employees - because of their expertise - NOT to cover your butts.

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, Small Company, Nice Gym, Great People, Great pay and benefits, free week of during Christmas. Flexibility.

    Cons

    Poor management, Micro managers, They don't want to hear it. Every manager is so busy that they do not have time to lead, Upper management is not really aware of the work load that most employees have to put up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are on the right path by adding additional head count. However, SAP is going to kill everyone's productivity and you may loose people.

    Show leadership and a vision to the company employees. Work with employees to understand and communicate the needs of the company, products, and customers in stead of assuming these are already known to management.
