    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities for success. Good people. Very interesting products on the cutting edge of health care technology. Pay for performance culture, with lots of recognition programs. If you are willing to work hard this is a great place to work. The management team really gets what needs to be done to grow the business. Lots of room for growth and unlimited opportunities for people who like to work hard. There is strong culture of continuous improvement, and there has been lots of change for the batter over the last couple of years.

    Cons

    There are lots of systems, and sometimes data is hard to find or not avaliable. There are some legacy employees that are resistant to change and give the management team a hard time.

    Pros

    The new people really get what needs to change and are trying their best despite all the people who have been there 15+ years and want to do everything the same way. There are a lot of changes and if you are creative, ambitious and motivated there are many challenges to take on. The products are very interesting and need lots of work. Great for an engineer with guts.

    Cons

    Management is frustrated with a bunch of people who are trying to keep the company stuck in the past. There are a lot of new processes and things that need to change and the oldtimers complain, complain, complain. They make sweeping generalizations about one or two really tough managers (see other comments here) that are trying to make the company grow. If you work here, expect to work with some really great new employees and some really stubborn oldtimers. When they finally turn the corner, this company will rock.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on perfecting one major change at a time. Retrain the people who are not going along with the changes and see if they will improve -- otherwise they should go.
