    Pros

    Great paid time off available & paid holidays. Good place to get experience.

    Cons

    On the job training only. No formal training offered. Procedures are terrible and unclear at best. High level management has no clue what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Invest money in hiring quality workers. Offer better pay increases and bonuses to retain valuable employees instead of always hiring entry level people. Implement better documentation and offer some formal training for ALL departments!

    Pros

    Good work-life. Able to work from home when necessary. Employee medical benefit deducted prior to taxes being calculated.

    Cons

    Medical benefits just ok - employee portion based on yearly salary. Medical benefits spread across several companies - dental with one, prescriptions with another and you must use mail order. Eye- good if your use Walmart, American Vision, etc. Not a position for one who likes to be able to control their work day.

    Pros

    Overall the company is a good place to work with products that save lives. There is a strong pride in what you do and knowing the importance the customers have in the products you develop. The work/life balance is good and the people are dedicated to what they do.

    Cons

    Sometimes with a large global company, the processes can be overwhelming which cause the product development cycle to be slow to react to customer needs.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, adequate environment, decent facility. There are people who try to improve things and they are great to work with individually or on a team.

    Cons

    For the creative, open minded, proactive, enthusiastic, high spirited, think outside the box types; run! For those willing to accept mediocrity, who thrive on doing non-value added work, accept orders (right or wrong) without question, don't care about loosing market share, accept poor management decisions without debate; this is the place for you. Draeger Germany is clueless and if there were one more competitor out there, other than Philips, Draeger would cease to exist. "Clueless" is the only term adequate to describe the management team in Draeger, Germany.

    Advice to Management

    Draeger sits on the reputation of Siemens Medical because Siemens Engineering developed all of the products sold by Draeger in the patient monitoring business. Draeger severly lack any semblance of innovation, has not developed any new products since the Siemens-Draeger partnership in 2003. They would be best advised to turn over their management team to competent managers, but I think its too late.

    Pros

    The medical devices manufactured improve patient outcomes, my commute is excellent, the people I work directly with are qualified, capable and enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Absence of vision, inveterate systemic problems, company culture lacks professionalism, lacks a Leader of R&D who garners trust, respect and admiration.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit and appoint a transformational Country Manager that can run Draeger in Andover, a leader with business integrity, confidence and direction. One who serves to enhance motivation, morale, vision and change. A Transformational leader who demonstrates genuine concern for the needs of the organization.
