I worked at FUJIFILM SonoSite full-time for more than a year

Pros

SonoSite has competitive pay and good employee travel opportunities.

Cons

SonoSite has a top down management style that loses sight of its people in order to move additional product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look toward starting 360 reviews. Allow employees to contribute more than just tactics.

    I worked at FUJIFILM SonoSite full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Decent work-life balance
    Small company size means that your work can have an impact
    Decent benefits, especially for part-timers
    Interesting products

    Cons

    Some good managers but some real lemons who are driving the best employees away. HR and upper management make excuses instead of addressing the problem.
    Unrealistic schedules that lead to burnout.
    Problems with design and implementation process result in the same work being revisited and redone over and over again. Many months wasted. No accountability.
    Management's drive to move individual contributors into open workspaces (no cubes or offices) will work well for some disciplines and personalities but will be stressful and counterproductive for others. A "one size fits all" approach shows a detachment and lack of understanding on the part of management.
    Salaries have fallen well behind the market.
    Low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace CEO, replace problem managers, fix design process
