Pros

Loved the people I worked with, they made it amazing.

Cons

Employees are not treated as humans, they are treated like computers. Management acts like they were trained at the local zoo. (ONLY AT THE CORPORATE LEVEL) Training was horrible, just a bunch of people (Managers) sitting around and telling you how you will do something or else.

Advice to Management

You have some very talented individuals working for this organization. Take into consideration their lives and families. Larger companies have fallen because of poor management. Eventually the sheep will not come back to the farm if the poor management continues.

    Pros

    paycheck, can be used as a stepping stone to get experience for another orthopedic company, which many have done. Pretty good pay for small town.

    Cons

    extreme stress, everyone in management afraid to make decision. gestapo like leadership at top. Every year since present top management took over employees have seen benefits taken away, such as medical insurance for retirees, paid holidays, and shares of stock options that had previously been given as incentive for good work. The lawyer and his minions want it all. The company has been sued twice in last 5 years for dishonest practices. Go figure.

    Advice to Management

    leave, and replace with people who are honest and know how to run a business that cares about it's employees.

    No confidence in upper management

    Pros

    The people below director level are great to work with. Several good engineers and long-time employees that care about their work. Salary is good.

    Cons

    Upper management has created a toxic environment of backstabbing and cutting corners. They don't listen to or trust any of their employees. Morale is the lowest I've seen anywhere. There is NO career development. It's all about the bottom line even at the sacrifice of quality, which is unethical in this industry. They fire people for trying to do the right thing and blame the employees for their poor decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Wake up and realize that your performance review system is the biggest reason morale is so low. Take a good long look at yourselves, and STOP blaming your employees for your mistakes/poor decisions. Quit running a once-good company into the ground.
