Fair at best. Feels like a failing enterprise.

Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager  in  Natick, MA
Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Natick, MA

Pros

Cutting edge technology. Being a part of healthcare. Supporting physicians and nurses. Decent work/life balance. Good pay. Generally good people working there.

Cons

Senior management doesn't seem to care much about employees, except salesforce. Marketing definitely takes a back seat to sales. While medical technology is cutting edge, everything else moves at a snail's pace. Bad location.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Exit interviews would provide so much insight. Have staff assess management anonymously. Take a look at the lifers who are in Sr Mgmt who are not respected and make some changes!

    Current Employee - Programmer Analyst II in Natick, MA

    Pros

    good family work balance. Professional atmosphere. Good work experience to put on a resume. Good for a first job. Nice people.

    Cons

    Low pay. Very little internal promotions. Recently cut bonus from 15 to 10%. Impossible to get full bonus. They expect you to "volunteer" and offer to do extra work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they're worth. Promote from within. Pay attention! Your employees want out! They are just lining up at the door waiting for the economy to get better.

    No opinion of CEO

    Former Employee - Quality Engineer  in  Marlborough, MA
    Former Employee - Quality Engineer in Marlborough, MA

    Pros

    Great place to learn about medical device industry and FDA regulations

    Cons

    You're expected to work at least 60 hours/week at a minimum, work/life balance is non-existent, managers are looking out only for themselves, they will mistreat you just to make themselves look good and macho. Not much in terms of new products in pipeline, a stagnating environment overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in internal, organic R&D, instead of buying up other companies. Invest in developing internal talent.
