    Pros

    Great co-workers and ok pay.

    Cons

    An entire department got their working hours changed to match the busiest traffic times in San Diego. All that, so people quit and they don't have to lay more people off, so they can outsource to NON AMERICAN, bad English speaking workers somewhere in another country. Daily bullying from the management, again, to make people quit. All that, for a big fat bonus for management and above. What about the customers?

    Advice to Management

    Please leave and let somebody take charge that knows what they are doing.

    Pros

    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 Management

    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

    Good people (mostly) working there.

    Cons

    They had stealth terminations; every couple of weeks you'd hear of some more people you know being laid off. Never knew when or if you'd be next.

    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 Management

    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
