Pros

Knowing what you do saves lives. Good work for good pay. Most of the management team is understanding and reasonable to work with. Not a lot of politics.

Cons

In some departments, the work load is heavier than others and people are required to work 60-70 hours per week every week. Some of the executive team are micro-managers and haven't learned to trust their teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide what you want done and guidelines and then let your teams execute.

    Pros

    Fantastic product, critical cardiac care device, easy to explain to other people and it really gets their attention. Looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Management by FEAR.
    High turnover rate.
    Unrealistic timelines ,i.e., my project loading was technically over 300%, but this was artificially lowered to look better, realistic loading was closer to 500%.
    No support from management.
    Departments are too lean to be able to effectively manufacture or improve the product.
    With the management philosophy in place people will stab you in the back so as not to be blamed for any delays or errors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use realistic timelines, and hire enough people to be able to truly improve the product.
