    Great work/life/family balance. They treat staff with respect and great communication. Benefits and vacation are very good. Management know what they are doing

    It is diffcult to move or change positions. They are not the best when they purchase a company and need better integration skills.

    Pros

    Exposure to everyday medical technology and working on important projects for a company that has large market share.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with the work force. No trust between business units, and in some cases, there's actual turf wars that have been raging for years. Quality processes are bureaucratic and ineffective. Managers turn a deaf ear to quality concerns from their engineering subordinates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more credence to technical experts.

    Pros

    Traveling. Lots and lots of it. From within the US and to Canada and other countries when we are needed.

    Cons

    The chances of getting a permanent position for contractors are very slim. There are contractors that have been with the company for more than 5 years and have not been offered a permanent position within the company.

    Pros

    Some of the best coworkers I could ever ask for! If managment cared half as much about putting out a good product and taking care of our customers as the typical worker the companys share price would easily be double of what it is.

    Cons

    Terrible upper managment destroying long term success for short term earnings.
    products pushed out before they are ready.
    benifits have slowly been cut over the years.
    No respect for work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the company and less about your bonus the people under you know how to achieve great things get out of there way and let them do it.

    People are solid, well meaning, caring. Management wants micro-managing, punitive management style.

    Pros

    Broad product set with lots of opportunities for growth by moving roles within teams / business units. Strong focus on patient safety and helping to improve the safety of caregivers and patients.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation - lots of lip service but most projects are evolutionary extensions of sacred cow projects.
    Too much focus on short term revenue opportunities and not enough long term strategic planning / execution.
    Management promotes those who micro-manage and are punitive. Lip service about collaboration and employee satisfaction when what they really want is results at any cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the long term sustainable competitive advantages
    Cultivate true innovation by starting new projects and investing in new technologies / opportunities
    Stop micro managing - believe in your teams, give them freedom to be responsible

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
