Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I worked at ZOLL Medical full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I liked the idea that the products we made were used to save lives. Definite perk to the job.
I worked outside Chelmsford, so my experience might be different.
Flex time, decent benefits, good pay.
I liked my manager. Many of the people were very good at their job. Some were so-so.

Cons

Upper management thought they knew a lot more than they actually did. Lower mid-management and the engineers made a decent product despite the misguided upper mid-management (and had to ignore totally unrealistic deadlines, even with occasionally putting in some serious overtime).
Different divisions (Colorado, Mass., IL, etc.) didn't collaborate together very well. Definitely missed the boat on providing package deals to potential customers (devices and computer systems that talk together).
We had a very strong team with great potential that was broken up, and the survivors were given no incentive to stay with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's a multi-site company. Put some money and effort in learning how to properly manage multi-site projects.
Weed out bad management - engineers are occasionally laid off, this should be able to happen to everybody.

    Current Employee - Patient Service Representative

    I have been working at ZOLL Medical as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a contract employee, the compensation is very generous, The job duties are very satisfying, as we represent an excellent product.

    Cons

    Skills are never reviewed because we are contract employees. No feedback given positive or negative.Territory managers are responsible for selling, and although they value their PSRs, there is little or no communication. Must be very flexible in order to accept assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop an evaluation process for PSRs and reward those that do a good job. Utilize the PSRs that are in place, instead of training more that you think might be able to drive business
