I Love Cyberonics

Senior Manager, Human Resources Business Partner (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Cyberonics full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPlenty of camaraderie, paid time off, fun activities, a state-of-the art gym with a company paid trainer and evening workout activities often led by employees. We work hard and play hard. Many accolades. Plenty of projects and rewarding work to be done in every department. Great leadership including emerging leaders who are absolutely amazing us with their diversity projects each month. There is lots of growth opportunity if you want it and you are willing to work for it.

ConsWith so many talented and innovative people it's hard to do decide which direction we are going to go and keep everyone happy. It's a great problem to have, but keep the ideas coming anyway! There will always be more ideas than time or money to do them all. Our senior leadership has a lot of responsibility in selecting the right course for the company but they are doing an outstanding job.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course. I have been here 16 years and each year keeps getting better for the company and employees with more seasoned management and an energized and optimistic workforce. Every year VPs are stretched to expand their own skills and knowledge and they expect the same from employees so that everyone is growing together. Continue to keep us all challenged. Continue to good work.

Cyberonics Review

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Cyberonics full-time

ProsCyberonics has a lot going for them, executive management knows what they are doing. they have a great product and have the knowledge needed for future developments.

ConsMiddle management struggles with older philosophy management - too many still in the "silo." Bonus system encourages this with departmental goals, and not enough Team goals. Need cross-functional rewards to align the department goals with the company goals.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower employees, rather than micromanaging. Encourage cross-functiong project teams.
