    Improve communication and organization. As the company grows by acquisition, it is expected that there will be some communication and organizational challenges, but it could be better than it is.

    Very Corporate though offers some great Benefits.

    Pros

    1) Global company, with a lot of opportunities if you are the right person and willing to work very hard.

    2) Amazing company benefits: being a global Company in the Healthcare space, they really go above and beyond any other company I have worked for. Vacation time is generous, 401k matching is unmatched.

    3) While very corporate and large, company culture is generally pretty good, and work-life balance is generally looked well-upon depending on your position. I have personally witnessed the company be very supportive, flexible, and understanding with regard to employees, especially those who have fallen on hard times (e.g. been in accidents outside of work, or deaths in the family).

    4) Global IT Help Desk is generally very helpful despite the large, seemingly unwieldy IT Infrastructure that is in place.

    Cons

    1) It's no secret that the bottom line is what matters the most. Company will regularly cut positions it feels will not contribute to the long-term vision; if you work hard, however, you can usually stay ahead of things.

    2) There can be a lot of contention between different divisions, especially with regard to budgets. If divisions can offload the cost of some project or expense to another division, they will try to do so.

    3) Company is very large, and always going through a lot of changes: Upper Management sometimes makes decisions which feel very short-sighted, or which have more basis in reporting than in reality.
    Often these decisions are only to increase profits in the short-term without looking at the holistic picture. End-of-quarter intervals can be very stressful as Company is aggressively trying to cut more and more costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make is easier for talented employees to break the mold and contribute without all the red-tape. In the long-term, it will provide more profitability and health to the company.

    Pros

    The products are important in assuring patient care and health. By focusing on Blood Management, the potential for high quality patient care gives the opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    The Company is spending millions and millions on building manufacturing outside the US, spending on 1st class travel by managers to Asia. These managers are spending on their 1st class travel and other extravagance. There are continuous changes and layoffs. Employees are working but lack recognition and job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is not interested

    Pros

    Relative good easy working environment.

    Cons

    Salary is low compared with the market. There is hardly any bonus distributed even if the company promised some. The company has notorious document procedures to learn that makes it very inefficient. The company is not willinng to use automatic app tools to improve its efficiency.

    Management does not care about what employees think. Everything moves very slowly and not organized very well. HR works very slow.

    Pros

    Division I work within is very friendly and family oriented. Cannot say the same for all divisions and office locations. I am able to achieve a work-life balance and Company as a whole is very welcoming of personal time away (Vacation/PTO) as well as LOA's of necessary. Great market value of Benefits as it relates to Employee Contributions

    Cons

    Very top heavy in Senior Management. Still having a hard time filtering down information to the workerbees. Senior Management having a hard time seeing what their team is capable of as a group and individual basis. Difficult to be heard at times and progress within company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please dial all the way down to the employees that make Haemonetics successful. Please listen to employees and what they have to say/ Also, please know what all your team players can do for you, the team and Haemonetics as a whole.

    Pros

    This company has growth potential depending on which department you work for. Things are very different from one group to another.

    Cons

    Getting the help that you need to accomplish projects. When people leave roles they aren't replaced the responsibilities will be spread to a few employees to take on and that's that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring more employees and providing more support to the ones that are here already.
