If you're in, you're in

Marketing (Former Employee) Boulder, CO

ProsMedical devices is an interesting industry; compensation is good, strong financial performance; great products.

ConsToxic work environment where only certain highly-valued employees will advance; opinions of others are not valued or desired. If you don't fit "the mold" eventually you will be made to want to leave. People get ahead by making sure others look bad and other highly-political moves. The organizational dysfunction is the worst I have ever seen. Somehow out of this great products are born.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't take everything so seriously...life is too short to not have fun.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
