    I worked at Biosense Webster as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work that you do makes a difference. If this position did not exist, Sr. Financial Analysts would be doing the work that you will be involved in. You will have meaningful work with intelligent people. People are very supportive of your career development, as well.

    Cons

    The team can be a little clique-ish, is split between two separate buildings, and is constantly changing. Not a lot of room to move around in different positions.

    Shlomi still runs company even though David Shepherd is President.

    Pros

    The GMB has been revamped and most of them are great. People are very smart here...great qualifications.

    Cons

    Runs way too lean, people feel overworked and resources are lacking. This is Shlomi's management style and it's horrible for morale. I know too many people across different functions looking for a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to reel Shlomi in as he established a horrible culture and he's now leading 7 companies. It's painful and he's just all about profit not people.

    Extremely cold and cliquish. You feel like just a "body" here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start interacting with your staff, instead of treating them like a cog on a wheel.

    I have been working at Biosense Webster full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being a market leader has made working at BWI an enjoyable place to work. Decisions and the working environment here really embody the credo that is plastered everywhere in DB and IRW. The people really make this place - and there are quality individuals here and in the field.

    Cons

    We don't have a single campus and that slows down communication and collaboration (especially with time zone differences). It's the nature of a global business though. It'd be nice if Irwindale and Diamond Bar were combined. We have been hearing about a new building for about 10 years.

    Thank you

    People, working environment, Southern California, purpose

    Cons

    Traffic on the 57/60 is pretty awful in the evening

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More headcount please! Also, it would be nice to have organized lunch delivery like in the EU.

    Former Employee - NPD Engineer in Irwindale, CA
    Former Employee - NPD Engineer in Irwindale, CA

    I worked at Biosense Webster full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    High pay, great name that comes with incredible benefits, some freedom in work. Some knowledgeable people, at least for their very narrow specialties. Surprisingly innovative in the engineering I was doing. Growing at an incredible rate.

    Cons

    Collaboration lacks between between departments in the same company, credo seems nonexistent here (it seems like just a bunch of words), people are very cocky when they really don't deserve to be. Design decisions seems to be more rooted in past historical decisions rather than manufacturability or performance. Engineers not knowing about the heart after working on it for 10 years is shocking. Very typical corporate, in contrast to other J and J companies. Accepting that job was the biggest mistake of my life. It's not even close. In addition, I was told I'd be working or certain things, but did not. They seriously lied to me about the scope of my work and the company. I hated it and within 2 weeks began looking for new jobs even though I had to repay relocation. Now in with a competitor and couldn't be happier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start following the credo. Pay attention to your employees. Not one person I knew could imagine retiring with the company. Consider putting teams in collaboration instead of competition. The decentralized attitude will burn you in the end.
