I worked at Invacare

Pros

Pros: Stable company, market leader, good product, competitive pricing, good people who you can learn from and be inspired by, opportunity for advancement, tuition reimbursement, major medical, 401K, sense of "helping" people due to the nature of the products.

Cons

Cons: Old boy network, but HR is actively trying to change that, if you're strong, smart and network right, you can break through, favoritism, heavy politics, a lot of peer pressure to drink and party with the executives, can be a "peyton place", Medicare drives a lot of the business - can be good or bad depending on your perspective

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Address the issues that are brought to your attention, the intent is to make the company better for everyone involved.

    Overall I view it as a positive experience.

    Favoritism
    Lack of opportunity for advancement
    Fear that management is going to outsource your job (if they can, they will)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there were more opportunity for advancement, I may have hung around for a while longer. This was my biggest reason for leaving: it was a dead end.
