    I have been working at AngioDynamics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The employees that actually add value for the organization (operators and front line technical personnel) are a pleasure to work with. A team environment exists that these two levels.

    Cons

    Complete lack of LEADERSHIP. Director and VP levels do not function as a team. Resource management does not exist. Directors and VPs "write checks that simply cannot be cashed". The organization has been "Covidienized" with a distinct and separate set of expectations and consequences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Almost too late for advice. Instead, statement: "Iceberg dead ahead".

    I have been working at AngioDynamics full-time

    Pros

    Most of the time, and for most of the professional functions, work is pretty low-key. Not many are spending late nights at work, and the general atmosphere in the rank-and-file areas is mostly pleasant, not stressful. Getting time off when you need or want it is not a battle. Employee Stock Purchase Program can be lucrative if you have the cash buffer to work with.

    Cons

    There are very few worthwhile perks outside of the standard salary and bonus (which has never been the full amount possible since I've been here). Virtually all professional levels are understaffed, with the exception of HR. Little attention is paid to employee development or overall company culture. Some companies have a "this is the way WE do things here" attitude (which is sometimes good, sometimes bad). This company has no corporate identity that could be identified by an objective observer. Senior leadership is completely disconnected with everyday operations and has implemented several recent "improvements" that have been detrimental to actual operational efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is much too concerned about doing things that sound good in shareholder meetings. Take some time (and some talent) and develop a realistic approach to solve the operational problems you've created. There is no canned program to follow for this, but put some real, long-term, sustained effort into developing a company culture and instilling a sense of belonging to something. This requires senior leadership to actually, sincerely care about the people that work for them.

    I worked at AngioDynamics full-time

    Pros

    Most of the employees are in the same boat, so there are a lot of understanding workers who are down to earth.

    Cons

    Upper management sets unrealistic and non-viable goals for progress. This creates lots of organization issues and morale and work culture imbalance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do things the right way.

    Pros

    Working for an industry that saves lives

    Cons

    Leadership refusal to set real expectation and vision that can effectively be communicated and executed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    “Leadership is more often than not about “soft skills” rather than hard skills. Yes, a leader who understands what drives the bottom line is valuable. Yet it’s the leader who can get others to perform at their best who ultimately creates winning organizations.” This aspect of leadership is critical for Angiodynamics to discover in order to put the company back on track. Without it, the company will continue to lose its most valuable assets, its human capital.

    I have been working at AngioDynamics full-time

    Pros

    You can find a few good people who care still working there. The main reason for this is the economic condition of the area. The time off policy is good and the rest of the benefits are decent.

    Cons

    I have worked for some major fortune 500 companies in the past. The politics here is the worst I have ever seen. Most Managers are more concerned with looking good rather than addressing problems, and they have a lot of problems. Turn over is high because people get very frustrated with the lack of respect Management shows their employee's. If you don't have a Management title , you can't have a good idea. Some seem to ignore problem employee's who should not be in their current role but have been there for some time so they look the other way. Many of the key players lack the social skills needed to be a good leader or mentor. Like many companies, communication is an issue. Chanes to proceedures are "blown through", then employees are held accountable for any errors made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What does it say to your employee's when the CEO of the company freezes wages and hiring then stands up in front of the entire company and announces (in his first sentence) "I just got a big fat raise".

    Pros

    Good for entry level candidates. Health insurance. Starting you'll get 3 Weeks vacation for exempt employees and for non-exempt employees you'll get 3 weeks vacation + 6 personal days.

    Cons

    Salaries do not match the roles and responsibilities. Sales are usually bad. Turn over rate is high. Moral is always down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come into the office more often and actually observe what is going on. Perhaps take a few finance courses. Have facility picnics to increase moral.

    Pros

    AngioDynamics still as that small company feel, and you, can get lots of experience if you are looking to grow. Also, all of the employees are friendly, which makes it a better environment, even with somewhat poor management.

    Cons

    The new CEO seems to be very separated from the manufacturing facilities, and recent lay offs as well as a poorly managed merger has resulted in very low morale and everybody worrying about their jobs.

    I have been working at AngioDynamics

    Pros

    Current employees are a joy to work. Despite poor morale, everyone has a strong work ethic and is dedicated to doing their best given their circumstances.

    Cons

    There is a disconect between senior leadership and the rest of the employees. This fissure in that relationship seems to be growing larger instead of smaller.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to understand current state of employee morale. Acknowledge what it is and its potential effects within the workplace and detail a plan going foward to address critical deficiencies.

    I havent found any pros

    Cons

    Massive turn over of staff. 7 people left the company and I have been here 6 months.Amateur managers and directors. No leadership. A lot of faking and lying on all levels. Long hours for a basic salary.They hire you for a position and within the next 3 months the position is redefined. Company grows by acquisition only therefore there is no knowledge retained anywhere and no loyalty.Company without values and morale. Ugly offices.
