    Onsite cafe, great stock purchase options

    Cons

    Its like highschool all over again. If you are not in the popular crowd you are bound to lose your job if one of them doesn't like you. Very political and inexperienced managers that will leave you out to dry to save their job.

    Pros

    A good opportunity for learning. Great products and clinical reach.

    Cons

    Company still unsure how to fully implement and engage this role - inefficient use of resources & expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Engage your clinical experts in evolving this role - do not have it driven by non-clinical & inexperienced Marketing personnel. This role has so much potential - it's much more than a hand-maiden role for Sales & Marketing.

    Pros

    Edwards is willing to put in the time and money required to train employees in new areas. Everyone in my area is very friendly and willing to help each other.

    Cons

    I can't think of any major cons. They have a few minor negative tendencies just like most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but always strive to make a better family and community in the company.

    Pros

    great company with great product. excellent employee stock purchase program and good overall benefits. i enjoyed the quarterly meetings.

    Cons

    my manager was a huge micro manager so that was my biggest complaint. i would have wished there was more mobility within the company.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of low level managers who micromanage if you want to retain young employees. offer rotational programs to help newly employed find what they are interested in.

    Pros

    Fast paced and creative environment with good work life balance. The company and management value its employees and look to provide good growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Larger corporation and can be difficult to quickly iterate new ideas or designs. This can be very business unit dependent though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with technology development and new device design as a mainstay but continue to work at bringing down internal product cost and overhead.
