    Pros

    Good products, NovaSure Sells itself, MyoSure works as advertised. Certain markets are flat or shrinking. They are still trying to get the business corrected from all the "product dumps" reps would do to make their number each Qtr.

    Cons

    Managers are "bullies"..motivate through fear and intimidation. The team concept is not there at all.

    Pros

    Great new CEO. Gone is the old regime that ran this great company into the ground. Really good products. Exciting to have MacMillan and his stellar track record as part of our company. Hope he does for us what he did at Strker.

    Cons

    Company in flux. No stability in leadership. Never listened to employees in the past. You only got promoted if you were Jacks buddy. Complete joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a consistent message. Care what the employees have to say. Promote from within and educate your people.

    Pros

    The users were great to work with. Most of them were professional and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Good ole' boys network. Management treat their employees as idiots that need to be micromanaged. There is NO out-of-the-box thinking. Everything is 'it worked before so we shouldn't change anything.' Now that there was just a shake-up of upper management, I see little hope for the future. Maybe someone will come along and buy them and keep the good people and toss everything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the employees - not just the directors and managers. Make sure they understand your direction. YOU may know it, but nobody else does.

    Pros

    Still has great products and some good middle management.

    Cons

    Upper Management is less than stellar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Heading in a better direction now that Jack is gone! He was seriously unprofessional and possesses very little self-awareness. I was mortified by his behavior.

    Pros

    Great technology on the mammo side but poor execution will take the other product lines down. They can't get out of their own way to save their lives.

    Cons

    Total senior level shakeup, none of the old guard are in tact which is not a good thing. Carl Ichan is going to sell each part of the company bit by bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run and hide.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great overall company mission, a dedication to women's healthcare, Was .once a great company to work for, everyone working together as a team towards a common goal.

    Cons

    Company became too big too fast, completely deserted it's core beliefs of a family company, Complete disregard for employees. Stop promoting from within instead choosing to hire management from outside the company, people who have no idea what there charges do or have to go through on a given day. The new idea of management is to seek and find any mistake a person may make to "prove" they deserve a bad review and very small or no raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the roots of the company, believe in and support your employees, use and develop the talent in you ranks rather than hiring management that has no idea about the product ect.

    Pros

    When the company was not so big, it was a wonderful place to work. Great benefits, wonderful people.

    Cons

    Too many acquisitions in such a short time. They never let the dust settle. Upper management did not care about the support staff! Many promotions with upper management but not enough with the lower support. They also forgot that it was a women't health company! Flex time was frowned upon in most departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It looks as though the new CEO is cleaning house. I wish him luck with turning around what was once a great company to work for. Now everyone is walking on eggshells wondering whose next on the chopping block. So sad :(
