Pros

Edwards Lifesciences offers a competitive salary with great health insurance and bonus programs. They also support employees through a wellness program that emphasizes financial, nutritional, and physical wellness. They offer a wide range of positions ranging from hourly production and documentation associates to director-level and above. Edwards Lifesciences is also focused on making products with the patient in mind, and this is mentioned in most employee meetings. This focus helps everyone see the big picture of the work they do.

Cons

There are few downsides to working at Edwards Lifesciences. One of the main downsides that you'll find at other companies as well is their focus of resources. Certain departments can afford holiday parties at luxury hotels while others make do with pot luck meals. Certain areas receive high praise while others who do work that is just as good don't receive the same recognition. This is something you'll find in any company, though.

    I worked at Edwards Lifesciences full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent senior leadership that has demonstrated a lot of smarts by getting onboard with TAVI way ahead of the curve and greatly strengthening the company as a whole. Generous with stock grants and the stock purchase program to all employees, so that they really feel like owners. A lot of millionaires next door created due to stock accumulation over the last 10 years.

    Cons

    The surgical valve sales force is like the lumberjack trying to use an axe when the chainsaw (TAVI) is bring used more and more. Previous high market share with the surgical valves is now being eaten away by competitors with hemodynamically superior valves (Trifecta) and a number of disgruntled surgeons/cardiologists that were also-rans for TAVI site selection using competitive products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't shoot your wounded. Survey the landscape and look at what's going on and do something to retain your good surgical valve reps that have demonstrated excellence when they had an even playing field. Mid-level management needs to do more to protect their good employees rather than just protecting their arse.

    I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The salary is great , the projects are innovative

    Cons

    Managment is egocentric. I see a lot of incompetence and it seems those employees are favoreded by other managers and they are able to rise through the ranks. At this point I'm just here for the paycheck and don't see this company as its managed today a normal environment for me to work in. I work in a group with a lot of incompetence and nothing seems to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage employees more and look past the BS.
