    I worked at Cynosure full-time

    Pros

    Cynosure has a great overall work energy, and everyone seems genuinely interested in not only the work they do but also the people they work with. A very open setting where the sharing of ideas and concerns feels natural and welcomed.

    Cons

    Upper management does not value the teeth of the gears, only the gears as a whole. You'll be given a handful of pep rallies throughout the fiscal year to make you think they care, but remember, the shareholders always come first, and if they need to cut costs, the axe could come down on just about anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the relationship between the employees lowest on the totem pole and your global initiatives, because right now, to everybody working under you, you seem a bit clueless to what the company actually needs to grow and expand.

    I worked at Cynosure full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The water from the water fountain is free.......

    Cons

    No money spent, everyone lies, low wages, 70 hour work weeks, mandated you carry a cell phone and be on call, and that is for everyone in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Cynosure full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There seems to be good team work among the Cynosure employees. They seem to work well with little and older technology. Flexible with hours.

    Cons

    Very high expectations and somewhat unrealistic without understanding what is going on within a department. Don't value an employee enough. They feel you are replaceable and no consideration to the hard work you are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at each employee and what they bring to the table. Consider when making transitions talking to the people who do the work and what will help them get the job done better. Don't just make changes and expect people to adapt easily.Sitting in an office and making decisions without consulting your team is unfair. Especially when we are the ones answering questions that we are not informed of our selves.

    I have been working at Cynosure full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Focused, driven and highly efficient departmental teams. Very fast paced, superb leadership. Plenty of opportunities for A-game players. If you are not type-A personality and are willing to meet challenges head-on, this company is not for you.

    Cons

    Extremely high pressure to perform, very little margin for error. Due to the small (yet very efficient) departments you need to bring your best effort to work every single day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive Management - Keep up the phenomenal work.

    I worked at Cynosure full-time

    Pros

    Cutting edge technogies, staying up to date with the latest demands in aesthetic practice. Great commissions. Good for advancement. Extremely high pressure. Selling lasers not for everyone.

    Cons

    There are large territories in a saturated marketplace. Lots and lots of cold calling and little to no account management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No issues with upper management.

    I worked at Cynosure full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people, everyone I worked prior to the merge with PMTI in were amazing

    Cons

    Stop spending on big buildings, prime locations and spend money on people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring mediocre employees that contribute very little. Also, seriously evaluate the remaining employees, look at their actual responsibilities, specially at management level.
    Treat people as persons not as furniture. Comunication is very poor
