Pros

Edwards is a real progressive company in recent years after losing edges to competitors like Medtronics, StJude. The company willing to spend money for their employees to have fun (lunches, snacks, holiday parties) in many meetings. The company frequently invites doctors, clients, elected officials come over for big parties in the evenings. I have never seen company that has as many parties like EW.

Cons

The upper management really get lost when it comes to promoting people. They promoted the ones who did the least work & screamed the most. They left the unsung heros in the dust. Even when they promoted those ppl, they joined the bad gang of upper mgmnt. When things falling through the drain, these management looked for scape goats & scrapped the projects & forced out the scape goats. A lot of red tapes & accomplishments are excessively slow. Too many procecedures to deal with. Politics are very excessive here. If you want to survive here, shut your mouth.

Advice to Management

A lot of good people working here. Money can't buy everything. Reducing politics should be #1 priority then reducing red tapes & bureaucracy,

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

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