I worked at Masimo full-time

Pros

-POTENTIAL of really great products.
-Most people in HR are very helpful and caring

Cons

-extremely high turn over: it seems most departments don't do enough to retain bright people and great talent- except if you are an Engineer. Furthermore, most people do not grow with the company, normal to have people in your group with less than one year experience in the role at Masimo.
-Be prepared for micro management: this style of management trickles down, so if this is not how you like to be managed, seek employment elsewhere
-very few processes that are actually followed which leads to some things that may be done in a questionable way
-no formal training to use any of the devices (with the exception if you are an Engineer for that specific product), due to proprietary technology; therefore, difficult to communicate 'expertise' knowledge on any of the products.
-company is very task oriented; therefore, one's own personal objectives is neglected
-compensation for certain departments fare less than 20% for some positions compared to market value

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to care about your employees. Realize those outside of Engineering are still crucial to the success of the company. Joe, take time to know the names of people outside of Sales and Engineering.

    I have been working at Masimo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people "in the trenches".
    Amazing products and market potential.
    Great benefits and company (not personal) growth potential.

    Cons

    Too many VPs, Sr Directors, Directors (many with no reports) and most lack leadership.
    Title envy runs wild.
    Low level managers often have to run the show with little to no direction or authority, look out if you have an idea that your director doesn't like or can't claim was theirs.
    Too many temps and interns (who have no skin in the game and are hard to manage).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually talk to and LISTEN to your folks in the trenches, those "nobody" supervisors and managers, they have great ideas!
    Some real leadership would be nice...
    Less weekend work

    I have been working at Masimo full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    good "worker bees" at the entry-level
    location is convenient
    HR group supportive of employees with events, etc.

    Cons

    ~too many chiefs - all white guys - some asian folks in IT tho.... If you're a highly educated, skilled woman, this is not the company for you.
    ~Jr-college corp - two years, and you're ready to graduate to a real company. turn-over is high.
    ~Sr. mangement and corporate org. suffers from title inflation. Too many Sr. VPs, Sr. Executive VPs, Sr. Directors, Sr. director, bla, bla. Most of these guys (guys) are not managing or directing anyone or anything -- in a regular company -- these men would be analysts or supervisors at most. Title in lieu of pay? No, title to set yourself up for your next job.
    ~infrastructure - systems, processes, project management, documentation, intranet, methods, practices are all old, badly implemented, the business technology is old. They have the money to make it better, but Sr. mgmt suffers from the "I'm good" syndrome when it comes them actually using technology, many actively resisting anything that would force them to learn something new, do something themselves, or move their butts out of their comfortable chair. (Can't we get one of the GIRLS to enter it in Agile???) Why would my MBA waste time with a company or an executive who thinks an MS project schedule or sharepoint site is too complicated?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ~time tracking - too many people waste money (aka: time) on pet projects for thier "boss" These are projects that no one knows about, or CYA efforts that don't coincide with enterprise objectives. haven't seen anything like it since the '90s. Time is money, boys. Don't believe me? See: your P/E ratio.
    ~ lose the 1950 mentality, and hire women for real jobs - you know, the jobs with the offices with windows? The executives who manage budget? It'll cut down on the hookers and blow and pissing contests at the off-sites, but you might get stuff done.
    Spend real money on systems, accept that technologists costs more than $45 an hour. Unless you're a guy, hired as an executive, everyone else is "Jr."
