    Enjoyed my position

    Consultant, Implentation (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat work life balance, great benefits, though salary could be higher.

    ConsManagement sometimes seems "stuck in their ways" and seems to be at the lower end of the industry as far as advancing products (compared to other device companies). If you are not in San Diego, where corporate headquarters is, there is limited room to move to other positions without relocating.

    Overall good company to work for. Extraordinary amount of data collection but too much attention given to wrong details

    Undisclosed (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsGood stability. Strong hierarchical management structure limits upward mobility. Everyone is very busy, but effectiveness is questionable. Overall, bureaucratic and sluggish management style is traditionally resistant to change, but could use a very strong dose of entrepreneurial problem solving infusion.

    ConsCross-organizational culture is stagnant at best with little synergy. Most teams are too large to actually solve critical problems.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider using hands-on evangelists with authority to select small effective laser focused teams for problem solving. Otherwise, there are generally too many team players working the same problems with little or no effect. Additionally, there is too much wash, rinse and reuse of routine documentation for effective management tools and guidelines. A 360 degree process between design, supply-chain and manufacturing to invoke true continual improvement will go a long way.

    Good place to work, just need to like what you do.

    Field Service Technician Lead (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsBenefits are good, other employees work as a team with you, local management does care but there hands re usually tied.

    ConsVP level and above has no clue what is happening on daily basis and who the ones are that are a actually keeping the customer as customers, hint it's not sales or implementation...... CareFusion has been doing a stock buy back which is great but the stock is raising and it's not because sales are increasing. Does engineering have a clue of the costs they are causing the company in OT for support staff because someone reversed a 1 and 0 in the code somewhere??? Just saying......

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the office and talk with end users, not directors or CEO's of the hospitals but the actual users that deal with the crap that is made in San Diego on a daily basis.

    Great Company, Sad to Leave

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Leawood, KS

    ProsGreat products, life-saving products to believe in, a company where you can really help people and be proud of the work you are doing

    ConsManagement makes bad choices, IT dept was less than stellar

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you have a good thing going, like a crack team, don't dissolve their entire office just because it's not in the ideal location. That hurt your company and the people you laid off for no reason.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management team leaves much to be desired

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsGood benefits, day-to-day work culture is trending up (some of the improvements put in place earlier are coming to fruition)

    ConsManagement team is weak, mostly due to reporting structure being in a constant state of flux. There are reorgs for reorgs, and the company can't seem to find a hierarchy it likes. Senior management seem to prefer their direct reports to be spineless yes-people.
