    I worked at Haemonetics

    Pros

    The pay, benefits and work to life ratio is a positive comparable to other companies I have worked for in the Northeast part of US. Haemonetics is trying to make a real difference in industry.

    Cons

    The company has acquired approximately fourteen companies in nine years. Integration of people into the culture has been a stumbling block. A reduction in force seems to be the norm after their acquisitions. Constant organizational structure changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act on what is preached at "monthly town hall meetings". Increase communication overall

    I have been working at Haemonetics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most employees want to do the right thing and are team players. Influx of talent from established Device Co's helped

    Cons

    Executive team is totally incompetent, micro-managers, have no idea how to manage priorities and therefore there is no coherent strategy. The company is constantly in a financial crisis but plays coy with the investment community, masking the truth. The deal to buy Pall's business was a total failure, and sales are tanking (+ poor salesforce) - the only thing keeping this company afloat are the cost savings initiatives being driven by Operations. The company has lost numerous Executive members, but the CEO and CFO are still around... Meager bonuses are paid sporadically but only after infighting by the Executives. Despite the poor performance the CEO still pulls down 500k/Qtr in equity bonuses on top of his salary - should be telling. If you are considering coming here, ask employees candidly about issues, and better yet seek out former employees who have moved on to greener pastures

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the experienced employees do their jobs and get out of the way, Stop trying to run the company day to day from the Executive committee meetings Get rid of the entire finance team and get people with Medical/Manufacturing finance experience, not Big 3.

    Pros

    Fellow workers are great! Work as a team when needed.
    Good Benefits.

    Cons

    Company lets go great workers.
    Company makes money in spite of themselves.
    Always a new flavor of the month.....whatever the new gimmick is at that time. ( Above / below the line, Who took the cheese, Branded Champions, etc.) Nothing is rarely ever followed through and used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of the whole company and the people who make it grow and great. Stop thinking only of the #'s, and how you can fill your own pockets. RESPECT to all! Say what you mean, and mean what you say! Too much politics.

    I have been working at Haemonetics full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very informal culture with no definitive expectations. Salary is above-average within the geographic region.

    Cons

    Expectations are not communicated but implied which leads to many misunderstandings. Leadership team drives results based on philosophy, not real-world requirements. Current management team is numbers-driven and unethical (my opinion).

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding, and they are generous with vacation time. The work is very interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    To get ahead, you have to move to MA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook your talent outside MA.
