Growing pains for a company that grew too quick

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsVolcano has great ideas of the future of the intravascular therapy, so there are a lot of interesting projects to work on. Most of the people genuinely want to help make patients lives better and are good people to work with. The CEO has a lot of energy, and has a good vision of the future of the company.

ConsVolcano struggles greatly on execution. The company has suffered from their acquisition strategy, which has led to factions within the organization competing against each other rather than working together. The office politics take away from the product development. Some people care much more about making a name for themselves rather than making great products.

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate the acquisition strategy and work to make the company more cohesive as a whole. There is a disconnect between the executive team and management, that is constantly causing projects to slip. The company's mission is getting lost because of the competition between groups.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Should be Acquired to achieve full potential and dedicated workforce

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Volcano Corporation

    Pros: Friendly workforce and good engineers. Cons: Executive staff and pay is terrible. The company is controlled by the CFO. Executives reject miniscule raises for the workforce yet find plenty… Advice to Senior Management: Volcano has not positioned itself to retain the best people. Stop thinking about your own bank… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
