Pros

Good pay structure and they want to be a place that values employees. Nice offices and good location in Plymouth.

Cons

Market for peripheral vascular interventions seems to be a little bit edgy right now. Growth expectations under current market conditions are a challenge.

    Pros

    Working on medical devices that save lives is a joy

    Cons

    Large scale change initiatives as the company globalizes resulting in job losses in the US

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your US R&D employees are best of class...don't drop them in favor of your new India and China operations, both of which are very green.
