    Pros

    Pay... Was ok but was the only thing they could compete on.
    Middle mgmt was still trying... Staff too, but too many Directors and VP's promoted for political reasons rather than ability.

    Cons

    Career development is limited to the two weeks before your review where managers exchange barbs in a race to define the bottom 15%.
    HR is a joke. Completely outsourced and incompetent. Payroll errors, benefits errors that went on for months with little care for the impact to the employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You pretend you have a culture that values the employee but you have cut everything the employee cares about in order to keep Wall Street from seeing the truth... the emperor has no clothes.

    Pros

    Paid well, facilities were very nice, many opportunities if you wanted to change departments

    Cons

    having issues determining where they want to go and who should lead - bit surprosed by adoption of Guidant processes - didnt appear completely thought out and appeared to be the goal of only a few middle/upper management (most of whom left the company during and immediately following the changes)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    may need to look for more input that one or two VPs -
