Used to be very good, buy out strategy is devaluing people

Pros

Meaningful work, mostly solid people.

Cons

Continuous string of acquiring software companies seems like dubious strategy - they aren't a software company and don;t know how to be one, at least not yet. Only time, and more layoffs, will tell if this can work.

    Decent place to work, but aggresive about the bottom line

    Pros

    Haemonetics has a good set of benefits, decent pay, decent vacation standards, and generally treats employees well. There is a very strong focus on the bottom line and meeting quarterly and especially annual revenue expectations, which makes it difficult to spent money for training or other uses late in the fiscal year, but also makes getting a bonus more likely.

    Management is generally good, and very approachable, and employees are respected and treated well.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, Haemonetics has an extreme focus on the bottom line, and will not hesitate to remove staff and close or combine offices when it deems that necessary. This is probably good for Wall Street and general business, but it can be hard on the staff; even experienced staff are cut.

    Valuable customer relationships, useful for long-term business relationships, are sometimes trumped by short-term concerns for meeting quarterly or annual objectives, which strikes me as somewhat penny-wise and pound-foolish.

    Another concern is that processes and 'goals' are a constantly moving target, and makes trying to build long-term systems for running and managing indivdual product lines within the business challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus a little less on quarterly results, value existing relationships with customers, and give more priority to longer-term results for both customers and employees.
