    I have been working at Thoratec Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great life saving products. Due to super specialized field, we get to become very close with customers, distributors and patients and we can directly and very quickly see how our products have saved the lives of many Heart Failure patients.

    Cons

    Very conservative with Business expansion in emerging markets which is slowing down the progress of market penetration and therapy acceptance in these areas.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in emerging markets with more supports from marketing. Hopefully, Thoratec can keep its' unique company culture with existing specialized team after the acquisition by SJM.
