    Has been good, but at a tipping point now - will either be a great place to work in a year or far below average.

    Pros

    There are many great managers working here.

    Many smart, capable, friendly coworkers.

    Medical devices - a chance to create something to help someone.

    Very respected company, with a lot of growth.

    Most parts of the benefits package are great.

    Cons

    Upper management, at this location, handles anxiety with micromanaging and constant redirection of resources - trying to put out fires.

    Little acknowledgement, in practice, of the "Quality, Time, Cost - pick two" concept.

    Overburdening procedures (even for a Medical company)

    Outdated vacation policy - fewer days than most places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and communicate that direction to _everyone_.
    Trust that your team can complete if you give them direction and don't change the finish line.
    Every project can't be "number one priority."
