Highly frustrating experience because of entrenched roadblocks and lack of conviction to really execute on vision

Pros

Potential to revitalize an entrenched and spectacularly flawed internal process.
Company is mostly financially stable.
Some very sincere and intelligent people.

Cons

No singular vision and lack of team cohesiveness.
Company is process bound and real innovation suffers because of severe legacy penalty.
Parent company sucks money, but does little more than talk about making changes.
Investment in employees is non-existent even after promises to change, nothing does.
Multiple legacy systems that have significant flaws keeps development fighting fires instead of innovating.
A large number of people at the company are just in it for a paycheck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to give more than lip service to moving the company into the next generation.
The people that are trying to effect this change are not really supported by the company.
Company should seriously consider what it says about belief in senior management when a large number of people decide to leave.
Real change comes from within.
Lack of true talent will continue to derail any positive changes.

    Pros

    It's a job. That's about all one can say.

    You are held responsible for managements horrid decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Spacelabs Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Ability to work on life saving products.

    Cons

    Non-competitive salary and lack of upward career growth. Management delivery date focus drives all product development activities to the detriment of product quality. Parent company (OSI) forces Spacelabs to require all decision approvals to go through finance. Unfortunately, this results in a penny wise, pound foolish culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about quarterly numbers and start focusing on a long term product development strategy for the company.
