Former Employee - Production Supervisor in Rancho Cordova, CA
Former Employee - Production Supervisor in Rancho Cordova, CA

I worked at Volcano Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Loved working for Vickie Wilson, she is extremely intelligent, patient, kind, understanding and yet has is able to take a strong stand when needed. They build medical products that save lives everyday and it is wonderful to be a part of those events. Many other employees and managers will be missed, with a very good group to work with.

Cons

The company is moving its manufacturing to Costa Rica, therefore eliminating my position. Promotions were very slow in coming, but it was a small company as far as the manufacturing portion of it goes. They are going in Costa Rica with lots of opportunity for the Costa Ricans but not here.

    Pros

    Company employees in Ranch Cordova care and provide expertise and knowledge of system. They are ones who really know how it all works

    Cons

    Ranch Cordova is getting strangled - parking lots are 1/3 full and at a time the same work effort from several years back is needed to address technological obsolescence issues and increasing market competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May be too late but this business is not a growth business. Its a revenue generating business which makes just enough revenue to support sustaining and maintenance. There doesn't seem to be enough market revenue to support growth and still staff up well enough to maintain the products Between that and new healthcare world it is no surprise things are taking forever.

    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Cleveland, OH
    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at Volcano Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Volcano work environment was energetic and fast paced.
    Strong and aggressive sales & marketing organization consistently grew revenue.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities depended on which product you worked.
    Volcano had poor track record of commercializing acquired technologies in part because of under-resourcing product development teams.
    Many middle managers added little value to Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moderate increased staffing levels of product development teams would lead to more commercialization wins. Improved training of middle management would lead to higher retention and better engaged workforce.
