Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Cool challenging projects. Success is rewarding knowing you are creating good things for patients and caregivers. Good dsign and analytical tools.

    Cons

    Too many people to please, proceedures, and project constraints are cosistantly unreasonable, unless you are on a project that is favored by management. Favortism, and nepitism creates an almost maddening toxic enviroment that will eventually burn you out. They favor new engineers for new hires. Management will progressively make it harder and harder on you. Computers are outdated. Award systems for good work are broken or nonexistant.

    Advice to Management

    Fair treatment is needed. Need to listen more to employees. A few managers need to be let go for their demoralizing treatment of their employees.
