Pros

Be able to work for an organization that contributes somehow to life science technologies.

Cons

No work-life balance, lack of team work, lack of recognition from management, and an organization that needs to restructure it's management with more experience to align/support with company growth.

Advice to Management

Management needs to create a team working environment and be able to incorporate work-life balance for working families.

    Pros

    Incredibly fast paced company, which is to be expected of a new world leader in a specific field. This could be a good thing or a bad thing. People here are extremely friendly though and love to cross train.

    Cons

    Expect a lot of you... Sometimes too much out of you. You're going to work your butt off and your manager will think it's normal.

    Advice to Management

    Notice how hard work is for the lower level employees. Don't just throw a weeks work in our face and expect results tomorrow.

  2. Great company!

    Pros

    Awesome team. The products are doing really well in the market.

    Cons

    Pathetic senior management, Hayward doesn't get its due!!

    Advice to Management

    The company is doing so well - there's no reason to make employee's life miserable by creating so much stress (stretch targets)
