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

Pros

great product and company---with so many different career paths to follow; the campus offers amenities such as on site cafe, workout facility, bb court; there are lots of fabulous people you will encounter on a daily basis.

Cons

culture is very political; general consensus with colleagues is the right person or good fit for a position is overlooked, told not to apply, etc. and the person hired/promoted comes onboard ultimately to satisfy "political needs"

driven highly by formal education, not competencies, almost to a fault; employees hired as early as 2 years back and are in current demanding roles (including directors, mgmt., etc.), exceeding expectations, would not be hired based on Edwards' standard today. These employees are in a "no room to grow" situation unless they gain a higher degree. As such, Edwards' is losing valuable employees as they have been demoralized. .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

take all backgrounds into consideration and do not undervalue those with strong skills and competencies to do the job---and have been excelling at the job.

look at the culture and the message you are sending to those in the workplace; basically, practice our "core competencies".

    Pros

    Great CEO and well managed overall.

    Cons

    Critical Care Business unit is poorly managed and needs a new leader. Lots of promises about products and new businesses but it always seems to fall flat.

    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.
