    Pros

    Good group of engineers to work with. Collaborative and supportive, relaxed, productive work environment. Lots of interesting products to work on. Every aspect of development located in one area so you are able to work with everyone locally involved in product development.

    Cons

    Could manage projects better and more effectively. Try to complete multiple products at the same time so competing demands aren't coordinated as well as they could be.

    Advice to Management

    Work on better coordination of product development and improve efficiency with realistic product introduction timelines.

    Pros

    Company offers good wages, benefits and transition from temp to FTE

    Cons

    Micro-management, focus, communication skills, lack of strategies, personal development or investment

    Advice to Management

    Single minded management focuses on Wall Street's quarterly review and bottom line will only take you so far. It's continued focus on outsourcing to overseas is about to seriously impact its ability to ensure contract renewals and satisfaction. People truly want to strive to provide the best possible end result for both the company it used to trust and its faceless patients who use to the company's foundation. Post spin off CareFusion from Cardinal Health it has yet to find its driving force and focus on how to resume it's place as the first in class it use to be. So many employees are holding out to see if it can be turned around but are ready for the possible layoff that seems to be inevitable

    Pros

    Generous vacation package.
    Nice industry - working with clinical workers is an honor for me.

    Cons

    Utterly chaotic environment. Extremely high turnover. Too many managers managing roles they don't have the knowledge, skills, or aptitude to manage. Too many promotions based purely on personality. Skills do not earn promotions. Extremely political environment. Lot's of BS going around and the managers all seem to have forgotten how to spot it. People who make empty promises and deliver nothing get promoted as long as they know the right people. Those who actually produce are often forgotten and receive no recognition.

    All the new (post Cardinal Health) senior management is overly motivated by money and nothing else. All the people who actually cared about anything and had any depth to their experience have been replaced by fast talking MBAs with salesman personalities. These guys could really care less about the state of things they manage. They're just thinking about their next bonus and many of them don't last long at all.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking for jobs. BD is probably not as stupid and gullible as the CF board of directors.

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits, PTO decent. Fellow employees do care about the work they do making lives better for patients and clinicians

    Cons

    Wall Street and stock price has become the focus of how business is done. Therefore budgets for face to face work with customers are slashed. Each engineer has accountability for 3 to 4 projects generally due at the same time so there is not enough time to adequately focus on the objectives for each team. Employees are never sure what has priority which has lowered morale tremendously.

    Advice to Management

    When this company was at its peak, there were 3 & only 3 objectives that every employee was focused. This created an arrow sharp trajectory that brought all employees together (across functions and shared departments) for common goals. EVERYONE was awarded for meeting these priorities & morale was always high.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, easy bank hours. Work wasn't too bad and most people there were great to work with.

    Cons

    Inefficient management at director and VP levels. People are more concerned with office politics and playing games to see how people will react instead of actually taking care of their employees and trying to get results. I don't have a lot of tolerance for bs, I'd rather be direct and get the work done. Not a lot of growth unless you're willing to play the games and part of the 'in crowd'. View their employees as numbers vs. actual people

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing games and actually do your work and try to work collectively with one another.
