I worked at Biotronik

Pros

Flexibility, great salary, work long days sometimes, great teams you work with, fast paced environment that you have to think on your feet.

Cons

Independent vs. Direct Employees, talking to your actual boss, having a central management or one boss, getting information from one employee who controls a large department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Everyone needs to know what other employees or departments are doing. Very redundant things within management or could be simplified rather than having multiple people working on the same thing.

    Pros

    Some very smart, talented people who are open, communicative and then leave

    Cons

    Senior management is in some departments (not in all) sub-standard, poor communication skills and poor knowledge of people who work for them. Instead of relying on the skilled people in the department, there is a tendency to promote the "yes sayers" and to leave those who know what they're doing at the job where they started (best case scenario). Enormous lack of people skills in Senior Management, and the worst HR department I've ever experienced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be intimitated by smart employees. When you don't know what you're doing, you still look good if you have good people work for you.

    Pros

    Generally good and friendly people to work with. Working to save lives with pacemakers is pretty cool, and lots of people willing to help you with the medical stuff you might not know. Health benefits pretty darn good.

    Cons

    Biotronik seems to be a hardware-oriented company and doesn't quite get the software side of things. Too many schedules are squeezed in order to attempt making a desire into reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that there is a tradeoff between time, features, resources, and quality. Know that you can't get all of them, and if you refuse to choose, quality is what often gets short shrift.
