Pros

Honorable company mission, Very nice facility, many temporary jobs available.

Cons

Still recovering from critical mistakes made by management which caused FDA consent decree lasting 2 years, and from narrowing of company focus by Medtronic, acquisition of company by Bain

Advice to Management

Do what you say you do. The develop new technologies. Too many employees do not share knowledge for personal reasons. Do something about it.

    Pros

    Good work and life balance. You will get time to spend with your work as work is not so strenuous.

    Cons

    The company is run by some jugheads who have no idea what to do. The managers are non-technical and merely understand the requirements of a technical person. There is no management and some simple projects took lot more than the required time.
    Its amazing that the company is still running.

    Advice to Management

    Read cons and you will understand what the Management should do.
