Pros

It is in Michigan where I live. Pleasant office environment.

Cons

Horrible incompetent backstabbing management. Trivial product - hospital beds and heating pads. No technical future for engineers. Incompetent do-nothing engineering staff. They hire gobs of foreign workers who will work for cheap but who have no skill. Boss is a weak man unable to give face-to-face honest feedback or direction - has to communicate only through formal memos. Gallup driven personality cult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of Gallup. Focus on hiring real engineers, not suck ups. It is not the great place to work that you all think it is. The SWEET team is a sucking blach hole of mismanagement. It shouldn't take five years to put wifi on a hospital bed, or two years to fix an air mattress. Stop outsourcning everything. Stop buying companies and then close theme down and layoff their employees.

    Pros

    The people that you work with are very driven to succeed.

    Cons

    The company claims to be more flexible in comparison to other fortune 500 companies, but its not that fluid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the sales force. They live off the economics of healthcare.
