Pros

Some good people, helping patients, generally understanding of project delays / screw ups. Some departments are better than others. Salary is decent for Sacramento area.

Cons

Transfer of manufacturing to Costa Rica means limited future opportunity for most operations employees at the site. QA is more difficult to work with than similar sized medical device companies, lots of unwritten rules and processes which are more complicated than they need to be.

Advice to Management

Investing the millions spent on Costa Rica facility and process improvements before moving (to Costa Rica) into Rancho Cordova could have yielded similar profit if given the chance.

    Great co-workers, unrealistic upper management, middle management layer trapped in the middle.

    Pros

    High level of technical expertise with peers. Good social interaction.

    Cons

    Upper management believes that projects are not delivered as quickly as they could be, due to the incompetence of the technical people. Unrealistic schedule expectations are not considered to be the issue. IWhile salary rates are presented as "competitive", the fact remains that those who leave for greener pastures will often make far more than their rate at Volcano.

    Pros

    Great products with State of the Art Technology embeded on them, Awesome working environment at my location.

    Cons

    Corporate seemed not to be handling realistic numbers on business growth back then. Also, sometimes some C-suite executives just wanted to hear what they wanted and not what they needed to.

    Advice to Management

    There's lot of potential with this site and the local employees. The Co. that recently acquired VOLC should acknowledge that, trust on it and unleash talent. This is a grest place to keep growing.
