I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Leadership really cares about patients. Long term thinkers, senior management has been in place and doesn't rotate so you are not getting radical changes of direction every two years like other places. Nice campus, good pay and benefits, lots of smart people.

Cons

You have to be committed which often means long hours. If it is just a job, you may not fit in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay the course, keep the culture while the company grows.

    Pros

    Company has found new money and growth
    Use its new money on R&D, capital and facilities
    CEO is good

    Cons

    Use its new found money to hire Directors at high salaries from outside
    Does not promote within its employees
    Only promotes new hires and Directors, kind of forget about the middle management where the actual work and decisions happen
    Does not value hard work and does not reward actual results
    Value employees who are the loudest and make drama and have their way with senior leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When was the last time you have evaluated one of your employees career growth without judging him/her based on quick impressions or what you heard!

    I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent talent, a large percentage of fellow engineers are extremely competent. Well-established culture of recruiting and developing entry-level engineers from top schools results in a significant pool of young and eager talent. Great opportunities for growth, hard work is well-recognized. Exciting new technologies and industry-leading innovation. Ample opportunities to share in the success of the stock price.

    Cons

    Relatively long hours are expected when nearing major goals, but nothing crazy. Goals are set quite aggressively, making the aforementioned time crunch unavoidable. Significant differences in culture between business units. Relationship-oriented culture can be a pro or a con, depending on your personality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in young talent.
