Pros

The senior management is very open and accessible. The culture is fun with a young active vibe. I feel like what I do makes a difference in the companies success. In general I feel valued as an employee. Great flexibility for work life balance.

Cons

As the company is growing there is a a lot of change and constant re-org. Lots of layoffs recently especially in non San Diego locations are bad for morale.

    Pros

    - Despite being severely understaffed, QA dept. works hard and upholds overall positive attitude under high pressure and stringent requirements - Interesting technology - Lots of work to go around and more often than not you will find yourself thrown in the deep end to learn quickly - Compensation is acceptable

    Cons

    - No clear display of employee appreciation; annual raise caps at 2% for "high performers" & promotional raises are nothing to shout about. Definitely room for improvement considering growth of company (where does the profit go?). - Lots of flattering words to temporarily appease employee dissatisfaction, but no action - Movement of manufacturing to Costa Rica caused low employee morale - Few opportunities to move within the organization - Management needs to better understand work and set realistic expectations for understaffed departments

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your #1 asset. Treat them that way and you will reap the rewards. Listen to your people, take the time to understand the work they are doing, and realize that tasks are not as easy as they seem when you are discussing them at a higher level.

    Pros

    People have a great sense of humor. Solid vision to impact patients worldwide. Many opportunities to the stronger performers. Financially sound and strong.

    Cons

    The Company is working towards building infrastructure and alignment throughout the organization. This is counterintuitive to the "autonomy" Volcano claims for its different sites. Working through a lot of transition and change.
