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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Laid back manufacturing environment, good people, helping patients.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, no lead by example. Executives are rewarded by the performance of the company but do not pass it on to their employees. CFO carries around a Louisville Slugger and destroys office equipment. Poor handling of moving operations to Costa Rica and San Diego where the CEO lives. Many people are leaving this sinking ship. One way quarterly all-hands meetings are a joke with no open forum for Q&A.
