    Former Employee - Account Manager in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Haemonetics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are decent but the cost continues to rise to have them.The company promotes from within and has many competent people. The savings plus plan is a great perk as they match dollar for dollar up to 6% of bi-weekly earnings. The severance package was above average.

    Cons

    A veritcal move can be challenging if your not part of the "good ole boy network" Haemonetics has acquired nine companies in seven years, they have a hard time integrating people properly. Work life balance is challenging as they have few sales representatives to cover the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle and upper management change all the time. It would be nice to keep the same strategic direction for longer than six months.

    Pros

    friendly atmosphere, good salary, good location

    Cons

    poor management. the c suites are completely hands off. over controlling people leading finance, lacking people skills, and the ability to see talent and nuture it. everyone is disposable. going through a "cultural initiative", what a joke.

    Haemonetics is a disorganized, relatively new manufacturing facility still working through learning and growing pains.

    I have been working at Haemonetics full-time (less than an 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).

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't overlook your talent outside MA.

    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.

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Operations Analyst
    Former Employee - Operations Analyst

    I worked at Haemonetics full-time (more than an year)

    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.
