    Pros

    Great company with great people. Global company with opportunities oversees. Fenwal has a deep pipeline and has a large customer base. Highly recommend this company.

    Cons

    Large global company so if your looking for a start up atmosphere, you probably will not find it here. Although, there are always new products and services so there are numerous opportunites with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire from within.


  3. Very frustrating to work in the systems test team. The company does not care much about testing

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. They give everyone annual raises, which are somewhat limited / small, but if you're a valuable employee they aren't shy about giving random raises throughout the year. I was happy working here. The company values hard work and you're in an industry where you are helping people. The corporate office is nice. It's on a golf course surrounded by nature, and It has a really good fitness center for weight lifting and cardio.

    Cons

    You can't go wrong working here, except that it's kind of far in the suburbs. For me this was an issue since I prefer living in the city which makes it a 45-60 minute commute depending on traffic.

    Somewhat small / limited career opportunities, but not bad still. There are options available.

    Pros

    Co-workers were awesome and location is enjoyable.

    Cons

    When Fenwal was purchased by an international company, the entire demeanor of the company and its mission statement changed. As a result many people began leaving the company. The focus has changed from serving our customers, to making a buck off them.

    Pros

    Great people, competitive compensation, best in industry culture

    Benefit policies changed and something I was previously covered and compensated for no longer applied so had to pay out of pocket.
