Pros

Great place to work! The technology is cutting edge and always seem to stay ahead of the curve. Work and home life are important and had always been accommodating to changes in personal life

Cons

Working with engineering when identifies issues and finding solutions. There needs to be more accountability and collaboration from engineering if the company is to continue to be successful.

    Pros

    You will get paid on time. Thats the only pro that I can think of.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. No focus on quality of life. No Structure. Theory X management style. (Micromanagers) Finger pointing is the primary focus rather than actually getting the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jump in front of traffic on the highway.

    Pros

    - Salary doubled in 6 years.
     - Believe strongly in our mission for being an agent of change in the health sciences industry.
    - Get to play with some exciting cutting edge technology and get recognized for innovations which help the company and/or clients.

    Cons

    - Senior management may suffer from extreme optimism which can lead to difficulty in facing uglier truths about organizational problems from time to time. But the seasonal house cleanings suggest when pushed they do face them.
     - HR doesn't mediate issues with direct managers, giving far too much authority to line-managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep firing the directors who don't get the vision. Give a greater pool of proven employees discretionary expense accounts/budgets which they can use to fund improvements they believe valuable to the company.
