    I have been working at Greatbatch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to be creative with new processes and practices. A laid back culture (very professional, but friendly) Transparency into the "bigger picture". Leadership that values what we do - I have had personal conversations with executives and they really do care about people (they are just people!). They want the best for this company, and it feels good to work for leaders like that. I have been here for about 6 months and can honestly say that positive changes are coming! I am inspired every day by the initiatives and projects that are developing in the organization and I'm truly inspired to be part of the team!

    Cons

    No cons to speak of. Benefits are competitive/average - very much wellness and health driven, so the company will push you to maintain the best health you can and reward you for it!...This is not a bad thing, but it's very progressive, and could be a change from what other people are used to.

    Advice to Management

    Always listen to your people. We are your biggest asset, and if properly inspired, and fairly rewarded, we will make thsi company a great success!

    Pros

    The mindset of Greatbatch is wonderful. They want you, as a talented Associate, to use your experiences and knowledge to make the best of your responsibilties in your role. They desire to promote from within, so growth potential (promotions or lateral moves) as well as learning new things and professional development is important to management.

    Cons

    nothing at this time.

    I have been working at Greatbatch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very competitive Salary, Benefits are pretty average. Progressive Wellness Program. Managers let you do your job and don't hover. 4 weeks PTO.

    Cons

    Lots of areas for improvement in terms of IT and Quality Systems. 401K match is not competitive with other medical device companies.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on continuous improvement. There is a lot of money on the table to be saved.

    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 Management

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