    CEO is visionary, but doesn't see the internal issues

    Pros

    CEO has a great vision and wants to improve healthcare.
    Talented engineering team with great proprietary technology in noninvasive monitoring.
    Lots of talented and driven people wanting to make a difference.

    Cons

    Company still operates like a startup, everything is subject to change at the last minute and best practices are rarely gleaned and implemented...there is little time for reflection and learning because the company is so fast-paced. Many decisions, down to smaller details are funneled up to the CEO because he is the founder and still wants to be involved. This can sometimes stifle creativity, because everyone will ask themselves "What does Joe want?"

    Company recently announced a 1 week mandatory shutdown period, which will come out of employee vacation days. This is not industry practice. My perception is that this policy was implemented to make it culturally acceptable to take vacation days. That should tell you something about the culture here and how hard people are working.

    Engineering runs the show here, and will bully the other departments into submission. They don't play well with others, and they (unfortunately) have the full support of the CEO.

    Engineering seems well supported, while other departments struggle with available resources to stay afloat. Too many supervisors, not enough resources to get work done. Thus, many work on weekends and late nights (and sometimes during vacation). Work life balance is difficult to achieve here so turnover in some departments tends to be high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change needs to come from the top, departments need to work together more effectively. Perhaps the only way to accomplish this is by CEO intervention and letting go of the bullies to set an example (no matter how talented they may be).

    If the above advice cannot or will not happen, new (impartial) senior leadership is needed to see the big picture and to improve organizational effectiveness. This company can achieve so much more if people outside of Engineering are valued and if a stern message is sent that Engineering needs to play nice with others.
