    Wonderful place to work

    Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) Bloomington, MN

    ProsWell compensated, very empowered to make decisions, extensive training. Great location, wonderful people to work with. The hours were normal business hours. After putting in 3 years the pto goes up which was generous.

    Conspolitics. customer service department as a whole was looked down upon. No where to move up within the company. The position was very mundane, same thing everyday over and over, not very much variety.

    Advice to Senior Managementyou get more out of employees with praise then with punishment. Sit with Customer Care at least once a year to find out what callers are calling in about.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall it's a great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Bloomington, MN

    ProsWork/family balance is important to this company. Coworkers are fantastic and with a few exceptions there is a lot of teamwork within and between different departments. The company is strong, growing, and makes excellent products.

    ConsManagement doesn't tend to listen to suggestions or complaints made by employees. There seems to be quite a bit of distance between management and employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou may want to keep in mind that those in direct contact with the customer are the ones who truly know what the customer wants. It would be worthwhile to listen to their suggestions a bit more closely.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Humane but modest on salary

    Senior R&D Engineer (Current Employee) Ballerup (Denmark)

    Prospeople are generally loyal to the company and so is the company to the employees. There is a good company culture and relationship between the employees (at least in R&D). All this makes it a good place to work.

    ConsSalaries are fair but not among the highest. Yearly increase is rather modest and has not been following the increase in cost (buying food etc.). The ordinary employee does not have any extras like free car phone or anything like that. It might be different at manager and VP levels (and up). There is often a significant workload In R&D and you feel that more employees are needed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut in more people so that they and the skilled people already in the company can develop their skills and thus continue the good job.

    Good company dong good things, questionable management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe product helps improve the quality of life for many people with hearing loss. The people are generally competent and easy to work with. There is a tendency to push the envelope on technology, which is a good thing, since some of those technologies become a significant competitive advantage.

    ConsManagement of certain aspects of the company are questionable with negative outcomes proving out bad decisions. As a Danish owned company there is a cultural bias towards group think. There are also some significant differences in how people are treated. There's a general sense of inequity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand and properly handle risk. Recognize and reward talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    GN ReSound is brand by their name, but may have forgotten why they made their products in the first place!!!

    Contract (Former Employee) Bloomington, MN

    ProsGN ReSound provides advanced education on their products and they train their employees well. Employees are friendly and welcoming to new employees. Employee dedication is above and beyond expectations. Human resources values their employees and shows initiative towards meeting employees concerns.

    ConsManagement intends to favor obedience and compliance verses dedication and educated participation in suggestive innovative ideas from their employees. Moral is very poor and employees are overworked. Employees are often shuffled throughout various departments where they are not trained, nor experienced in performance of duties that they may be placed upon. Temps are utilized most often during times that require additional help but are unable to be placed on permanently for gainful employment. GN ReSound management intends to take shortcuts in performance and financial duties. Which in this case, it intends to further cause more problems within company moral and problem solving in department performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFollow through intends to be problematic for management, as well, willingness to listen to new innovative ideas from employees. Management needs to spend more time creating new innovative ideas that are more effective. Management needs steer away from taking too many shortcuts to meet quarterly performance. Management needs to be reminded as to why they made their products in the first place verses being preoccupied with branding their name and gaining more status quotas on financial gain.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
