I have been working at Volcano Corporation full-time

Pros

The company has a solid vision and seems to have a solid plan to execute that vision. In many offices the people are hard working, friendly and want to add value. The CEO seems to know many people by name and really care.

Cons

There is just too much to do and not nearly enough people or other resources to do it. The work - life balance does not exist. Salary increases are very low, de-motivating many people contributing greatly to the company. At the corporate office in SD people seem very entitled.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are a company growing about 20% a year ... reward those helping that growth a bit more!

    I have been working at Volcano Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Interesting projects. Great technology and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Management by sloganeering. Atrocious communication. Company is attempting to grow by accretion and is chasing away their best people. The CEO is completely out of touch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending that you care about quality or that you care about the people who work for you. We all know better.

    I worked at Volcano Corporation as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Has potential, but with the move of manufacturing to Costa Rica, employee morale and confidence is very low.

    Cons

    Senior management sends out regular emails announcing quarterly profits, but provides employees 0 merit increases. The Go, Go, Go mantra is viewed by employees as unprofessional, overly simplistic, obnoxious, and insulting. The good old boy network is alive and well here. Rentention rates of VP managers is overlooked and they are not held accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the employees and clean house of the elitist managers that are not adding value to the company.
