I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences

Pros

- Great benefits.
- Stock is doing great!
- New CIO – hopefully things will change for the best.
- Schedule is somewhat flexible, as long as you work your 10 hours a day.

Cons

- Lack of career development plans.
- Hard to find balance work and life.
- Very political.
- Lack of project management specialists – anyone can be appointed to manage a project, regardless of project management experience.
- Employee recognition varies for which business unit/project you work in, not necessarily on performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Hire project management specialists, or invest in training.
- New project requests should be handled, or at least overseen, by management.

    I worked at Edwards Lifesciences

    Pros

    In the Industry Edwards is a Market Leader , Benefits are good , as with anywhere there are quality people working at this Company

    Cons

    Managment in CC has been around for so many years it is very Political - There are some dishonest Directors that rule the roost and unless there is a change I don't know how the business will survive in this environment. Work life balance is non-existent if you are on vacation it is expected that you will pick up your voicemails , emails and complete reports on demand. This was not the case here many years ago this has become standard practice - Integrity is an issue in this division as well - If you don't get drunk and stay out late partying you will not be seen in a positive light if you are in Sales . In this decade most companys don't stand for this type of behaviour. The THV side of the business is completely different and if you work for them you have great Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrity , honesty, work life balance - all of these should be looked at. See where the turnover is occuring stop listening to excuses and make changes. Learn from the THV group - they have happy employees - Happy employees are great employees (dedication should be valued)
