    Pros

    Team work among colleagues is great, especially to get things done. Lots of training to get you to appreciate and understand your part in a project.

    Cons

    Work load can be too extreme at times. Lack of appreciation for work-life balance concept, to the extent of non-existence at times. Pay wise, not competitve enough

    I worked at Edwards Lifesciences

    Pros

    Benefits, flexible work hours, in-house cafeteria and workout facilities.

    Cons

    No recognition for good work performed. Promotions are mostly political appointments. Communication and leadership from middle management is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage by walking around and talking to the people in the trenches, not middle management, (directors and above).
