Pros

Products are well-regarded. Many excellent employees. Memphis culture is generally cooperative, productive, and knowledgeable. International scope of company can be invigorating.

Cons

Company doesn't always make the most of opportunities to focus. As a result, energy, enthusiasm, and effectiveness can sometimes be dissipated by too many initiatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time to focus and prioritize, give employees a strong change for success. This will help motivate employees while the company transforms itself for the future.

    Pros

    Very good salaries and bonuses. Good environment in the healthcare area. It is a global business, which allows employees to get global exposure.

    Cons

    Terrible management and steps of reorganization. By Q1 2012, the internal environment is a disaster. Might recover by the end of 2012.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management must stop laying to the employees. Structure needs to be more horizontal (it is too vertical, lot's of employees as managers and directors with no body reporting).
