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 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.
