    I have been working at Biosense Webster full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Involved in important work/surgeries -Ability to become an expert at your craft and earn respect from your peers -Highly recommended for recent Biomedical Engineering grads looking to find a job halfway between Medicine and Industry

    Cons

    -Long/Inconsistent hours -Harder/better you work, more likely to be asked to cover more procedures with tougher physicians -Some imbalance in team responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    Overall, management does a pretty good job of recognizing talent and rewarding strong work. Weakness in any individual on the team can put a staring on the rest. Recognition of this weakness and willingness to address this with proper training needs to improve.

    I worked at Biosense Webster full-time

    Pros

    Salaries and bonuses are excellent. Benefits and perks are excellent. I had a great boss. Wasn't a micromanager but can't speak for all management.

    Cons

    Lots of stress related to work. Interview process didn't give an accurate picture of what the day to day job was going to look like.

    Pros

    Great technology, talented R&D & Ops engineers, great benefits thru J&J, decent salaries.

    Cons

    zero collaboration among departments, gripped with politics, everyone's territorial, inconsistent work distribution (some are overworked while others are starved), worst regulatory department (supposedly comes in at 5 and leaves at 1 when they are needed),

    Advice to Management

    IMPROVE Collaboration among departments.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable team members, good culture encouraging individual contributions as well as team initiatives. One of the fastest growing companies in its sector.

    Cons

    Don't recall if there was a decent company cafeteria. No onsite gym or games facilities. Used to be a bit of problem finding conference rooms.

    Pros

    Good experience, training, relationships, pay.

    Cons

    No quality of life, revolving door so that our local team was always short-handed, un-supportive management, compensation not related to the amount of work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that money isn't everything, that people need some quality of life, recognition for hard work, and clear developmental plans and opportunities.

    Pros

    Huge value to the customers. High paced environment.

    Cons

    Need to have the right mindset to work for this company. As with any company, some will thrive but many will perish. Understand where you are, decide where you want to be and have the courage to make the right decision.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the changes required to bring the company to the next level and be explicit on what we are doing and what we are not.

    I have been working at Biosense Webster full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Standard issue company car, phone, health benefits, pension. The product pipeline is good. The marketing department is clinically driven. Coworkers in the field are highly competent.

    Cons

    Leadership is all about the money, not about the people. Unfair performance review criteria that favors larger, more resource-heavy regions. Now they expect us to be selling Xarelto as well. Again, everything is about the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Your commercial effectiveness manager is not very effective. There is more to the job than numbers and data. Half of the stuff we do for our customers is not recorded. Travel times are not recorded. And why is achieving 115% of quota only a "meets expectations" and not an "exceeds expectations" rating? You should strongly consider giving your employees the option to have normal 8 hour days and hire enough staff to support the case load accordingly.
