Pros

Intelligent co-workers, great history of products to be associated with, medical device industry has weathered the economic malaise better than many other industries

Cons

Promotions tend to be more political than they should be - it's who you know, and not so much what your results have been.
Frequency of RIF's is too much a part of the corporate culture and has a long term negative effect on those who continue to "survive" these all too frequent bloodlettings to hit the quarterly numbers for the "Street"
Executive management team is too disconnected with what is going on in the enterprise

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just churn your "most valuable resources" - you are losing too many good people who truly care
Walk the talk - allow for some risk taking - don't shoot the messengers, or you risk losing the ability to innovate.

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to work independently and try new things. The current leadership has a big vision for the company which can be exiting. There are also many chances to win increasing levels of responsibility.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to advance in a career without having to leave the company, since most open positions are filled by external candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to invest in your people.
