Cultish

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsIf you're a young person trying to get a start in medtech, it's a good spot. The lower and middle management ranks are reasonably competent and care about the well-being of their reports.

ConsThe place is a cult. Way too much time is spent worrying about "the culture", while not nearly enough is spent actually managing the business. Upper management is strong at brand marketing and raising capital. At building and maintaining a corporate infrastructure, hiring practices, IT systems, and the other nuts-and-bolts aspects of running a medtech business, they are the least competent group I have encountered in my career.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has grown stale, and it shows in the quarterly results. It's time to reinvent yourselves. Probably doesn't hurt to encourage some upper execs to retire to board seats and bring in some fresh blood to reinvigorate the company.
