Pros

Not much. Greatbatch is an American based company with domestic manufacturing. Their core strength is the pacemaker business and they have woefully tried to diversify themsleves from it.

Cons

Greatbatch is driven by an executive team which is focused on maximizing their compensation by disregarding the impact their decisions will have on their customers and employees. Their organization is a conglomeration of dissaparate entities which function poorly together. They close factories without any consideration of the implications it will have on their customers or employess for the sole sake of improving the bottom line. Their quality and delivery are suspect. Their management and sales team turnover is excessive due to poor leadership and short sighted behavior. Working here is a nightmarish scenario you should steer clear of.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seek guidance from your customers and employees instead of making decisions in a vacuum based solely on financial considerations. Focus on your core competency and stop the diversification strategy.

    The building and the location in Cleveland are not the best.
    Team is split across to many locations to easily collaborate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a more modern building in a better area. Look into combining all 3 locations into a single location.
