Good place to work, they expect a lot, not much encouragement for moving between functions

Pros

Good pay, benefits for the area. You can be proud to work for a company whose product saves lives. Opportunities to travel. The EndoVascular division is uniquely innovative and open to fresh perspectives while actively encouraging people to move around and bring their ideas to the business. Recent upgrades to the facilities really helped freshen up the old buildings. Depending on position and your particular supervisor, they can be very open to working from home when needed and also have some opportunities for full-time work-from-home positions. Great people, and you come into contact with people from all over the world.

Cons

For certain functions, you must be willing to relocate in order to move up to certain levels. Highly regulated environment (for good reason), but this requires a great deal of documentation and keeps things somewhat conservative and slow moving. Except for EndoVascular, it's a pretty conservative environment. Often, the place seems empty as people travel a great deal...don't look for an overall vibrant, exciting place to work.

Advice to Management

Walk around the facility once in a while and talk to the people doing the work. Value the generalists and let them pollenate the site with fresh ideas. Don't focus so much on credentials.

    I was told this would be inside sales, while there is indeed selling- it is more paper pushing- somewhat deceptive.
