    Pros

    I like the core team aspect as well as the operators. It can depend on where you work though. There are several business units from CSS, to HVT, to THV. Great benefits!

    Cons

    The pay for the operators is atrocious considering they're making life saving devices and only starting at $10.76. I was in THV and it was a crappy place to work based on upper management, specifically Nathan Tenzer. Do not work for this guy.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding someone who is more personable than Tenzer.

    Pros

    Wonderful mission that Edwards employees live and breath. State of the art products that made me really proud to be a part of the overall plan.

    Cons

    Employees are extremely clickish and very competitive - kinda like high school (and HS life was awhile ago). Glad that I worked there wouldn't want to work there again! High pressure.

    Pros

    Awesome products that saving a lot of lives.

    Cons

    Long hours. Terrible environment in Draper. No possible advancement. Managers know everything and won't promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Tenzer and reshape THV management. They did an OK job at getting THV Draper running but their medling will rear it's ugly head in a few years. No regard for humans; employees or otherwise. You think you have problems with the FDA now... They offer no mentorship because that would take time away from shipping product. Does Mussalim know that Draper THV managemet is doing the exact opposite of everything that preaches and believes in?

    Manager thought he was very intelligent, but many would like to tell him otherwise.

    Pros

    Company does a great job taking care of their people. Benefits are very good and if you move into a management position the pay is great also. The R&D folks work hard, from what I observed and innovation is fostered.

    Cons

    There are many inexperienced people promoted at this company. With this, there are many directors, but not enough worker bees to get everything done. The company is heavily populated with engineers, but many of them are contracted. The company has a tendency to have good sized layoffs starting every fall, this includes contracted workers and permanent employees. As with many companies, there are way too many repetitive meetings and people who are afraid to make a decision. Most likely due to the inexperience.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more Business Minded people and those who are intimate with the FDA for Regulatory/Quality positions.

    Pros

    Love how the company is trying to be conservative and environmental-friendly... the park, gym, basketball court, volleyball, cafeteria! Everyone is nice and helpful, never have I seen rude employees, good job HR!

    Cons

    Company uses third party hiring firm for which they take a percentage off the paycheck.. I could've made more with direct-hire by Edwards than be contracted through this firm, but I know there's a hiring limit per department.

    Advice to Management

    In my department, it's kind of disorganized in terms of files, both hard copy and digital. There needs to be better management of placing files into proper folders on the network.

    Culture is counterproductive leading to in-fighting, posturing and job dissatisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at BU leadership. Create a culture of fostering a positive environment where there is true collaboration and not one of internal competition.
