Pros

Most of the people are fun to work with. Due to the types of devices they produce, there is a high level of satisfaction with helping patients improve their lives.

Cons

AMS is Currently going through reorganization although they don't openly admit it. They should be more open about this. There is limited opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

There is a need for more transparency around changes made in personnel. They are almost secretive about the organizational chart.

    Pros

    It's not a tiny medical device company so there is more stability in that they will be around for awhile and yet not too large so that you are completely lost "in the monster" where you are just a number.

    Cons

    Given the size of the company, you wouldn't expect as many "silos" as there are. Different departments are treated very differently. Also, each department utilizes systems, many of which we need, but doesn't communicate or corrdinate them with the departments they interact with. This can produce problems as many are not completely comapatible with each other as they are, creating many difficulties in implementation and allowing projects to move along.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest and sincere in your communcation as to what is going on with the company and how it is doing. Given the ecomony, most people expected some changes and such but the reason for doing so has not come across to anyone as geniune. And given the timing of some of the changes and the effect that it had on many, this is not too much to ask. In essence, there needs to be more transparency so employees trust senior management when they say how we are doing and this is why we are doing these things.
