    Great experience most of the time I was there except the last 2 years

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
    Irvine, CA

    ProsGood benefits, Good place to work if you are starting out or want to get experience in the medical industry then move to another company in 2 to 3 years to make more money, Opportunities to learn

    ConsPoor Advancements potential-tend to promote from the out side; Pay- lower than industry average; Treatment of people and Security- demoted at least 7 managers in the last 3 years, they give poor reviews out of no where

    Advice to Senior ManagementChanges don't seem tied to an overall strategy. Don't change something for the sake of changing. Help your people understand how changes fit in an overall strategy to improve the business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Micro managed to death

    Quality (Former Employee)
    Irvine, CA

    ProsLower level people are hard working and need their jobs

    ConsSenior leaders have no clue what is going on. They only care about their numbers, with no respect for quality or for patient safety. Preach cultural change but have no interactions with line staff.
    Cheap, too cheap to fix machines

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire anyone who has been there too long. Dinosaurs are killing the company. Keep the COO out of the business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Knee-jerk changes

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Irvine, CA

    ProsGood, knowledgeable people
    Neat projects

    ConsDysfunctional management that overreacts and makes changes on a whim without fully understanding the consequences. Preach to do the right thing first time around, and practice pharmaceutical elegance, yet hardly see that enforced or is conveniently forgotten when the pressure is on. You spend more time watching your back then focusing on getting tasks completed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop working your people to death. Appreciate their input and contributions. Reward the star performers rather than treat them like garbage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good, Relaxed place to work ...but that comes at cost of ok Salary and Career Growth

    Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
    Irvine, CA

    ProsRelaxed environment, very informal (most of times), good work-life balance specially if you going to school (part time) like me. very good people to work with. sometime works get crazy, as we are in production but mostly not bad at all.

    Conslow career growth, lower salary compared to equivalent firms, no sense of pride

    Advice to Senior Managementlook through in your organization as who wants to grow, select a strategy and stick to it rather than changing it all the time. work for employees and they will work for you !!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
