    Former Employee - Engineering Intern in Clarence, NY

    I worked at Greatbatch as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They treat their interns as well as they treat their employees. I always felt like part of the company and they always tried to integrate me into as many projects as possible. Overall great experience.

    Cons

    Having an internship does not solidify your chance of getting a full-time job, but the experience that you gain during the program should help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to push the interns and test their boundaries. The program should make them leave their comfort zone since there won't be many other opportunities to fail in the future.

    I worked at Greatbatch

    Pros

    Great group of People.
    Cool Productions - chance to work on Medical Devices that really impact people's lives.
    Leading edge technology.

    Cons

    The building and the location in Cleveland are not the best.
    Team is split across to many locations to easily collaborate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a more modern building in a better area. Look into combining all 3 locations into a single location.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Greatbatch full-time

    Pros

    The longer termed people were excellent, but they were becoming far and few between. When I was there the company was in acquisition mode, which was nice.

    Cons

    Executive leadership became very disengaged from the rank-and-file. The company went from the kind of place where you could high-five the CEO in the hallway to not being allowed in the executive suite because you were not the right class. It went from a company that treated everyone the same to a class-based system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have less emphasis on MBA's, try to engage everyone

    Doesn't Recommend
