Current Employee - Management in Irvine, CA

I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time for 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.

    I worked at Edwards Lifesciences full-time

    Pros

    Great people. They definitely attract some of the best talent in the industry. Great products. Most product are first in class or best in class. Strong senior leadership. Dynamic CEO. Great perks, stock, 401k, benefits, company car.

    Cons

    Old boys network. Definite favoritism to consistent top performers. Inconsistent, middle of the road or struggling representatives will not have as many opportunities here. Poor talent development. Limitied room for advancement.

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

    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!
