    Pros

    They treat their employees with respect. This is a business run mostly by women and I sense the interpersonal relationship climate focused towards women and their relationship culture.

    Cons

    I was hired to meet a particular need with little or know though about after wards. The hiring job description did not in my opinion match reality. What I brought to Medela to meet their needs conflicted with the management style of engineering and new product development. Yet I was hired to develop new product and was only allow to work in that area. Their solution was to place me in a silo, (not in the job description or their ISO9000 product development procedure).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The founder has retired and management staff is not professional. That means not in balance between production and creativity. The above actions follow good production standards. Risk is the result of change so lower risk by minimizing change and only after 50 meeting to squeeze out all risk and creativity because the reviewer are not creative.

    Their cause, their customers, the people, the compensation.

    Tail wagging the dog with US division driving the majority of sales while Swiss headquarters dictates.
