    Pros

    There are plenty good people there, if utilized properly, and not used, Pay is alright, medical, and dental, vision benefits, and 401k available. Tuition Reimbursement available.

    Cons

    Not always given the information or resources to perform effectively in your role. A lot of subcultures exist, some people do not share information that can help you in your job, many people feel management doesn't care about them (though not the case with all managers). Bad behavior is rewarded, and protected, abusive behavior goes unchecked. Your Rights are not always upheld.

    Advice to Management

    There are good people at all levels in the company, many could most likely perform the duties of the toxic ones more effectively (given the chance). Treat your employees better, good talent can be lost when people would rather be else where. Do not allow people in authority to abuse people without authority, I have no opinion for current CEO, he was not there when I was.

  2. A very corporate environment but positive people and rewarding work

    Pros

    - Making a difference in medical technology that positively impacts patient health
    - Career development opportunities

    Cons

    - Corporate environment does suck some of the fun out of work
    - Constantly shifting organizational structure can create "protective" mentality and suppress collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees and stay focused on being the leading medical device manufacturer.
