    I have been working at ICU Medical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company has been very successful for a very long time despite very lax oversight and management and a jock culture that was sometimes difficult to figure out, let alone break into if you didn't play hockey. New CEO came in and reorganized the company, cutting some positions that were redundant--especially in the field sales force. I think it was the right thing, but time will tell. At least he was trying to actively make a difference, something that hasn't happened for a while. And he promised to use the company's vast cash reserves to build and grow. I hope the moves prove to be successful. I like it here.

    Cons

    The restructuring is new, and whenever something new is put in place it takes a while for people to get over the shock of change and begin pulling in the same direction. Some people, who may have liked the fact that they weren't really held accountable in the past, have left. Others are grumbling and missing the old days. Others are stepping up and embracing the new roles. At the end of the day, I think we'll pull this off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible, listen to people, and don't allow the negative murmurings stop the positive changes. And don't be afraid to make changes in senior positions.

    Pros

    It was a great place to work. I enjoyed my time with all the managers and co-workers. ICU Medical manufatures Industry leading product and is dedicated to developing new and innovative product all others try to manufactures try to duplicate.

    Cons

    Recent corporate restructuring makes current sales force extreemly nervous about future after mass layoffs. Also, sales commission and bonus structure is weak.

    Pros

    Lack of managerial oversight. The only good thing about working for this company was the bond with the great people in the sales division and the fact you didn't have to work much because you wouldn't be compensated for your efforts anyway.

    Cons

    Horrible, ambiguous commission plan. Poorly developed products due to management ignoring feedback from field reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about executive compensation for upper management who does little or nothing to generate sales and concentrate on field reps compensation. They are the ones driving the sales and lack of compensation for them created apathy and terrible morale.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for if you're after something long term and reliable. Everybody here wants to do good in the world, since the company is so patient and caregiver oriented. Fantastic benefits.

    Cons

    Because everyone cares so much, this can cause some tension and division. It is fairly one-dimensional in the way of career advancement.

    Pros

    Great products that always focus on solving a clinical need. Good environment, not a lot of politics. I like being part of a company that makes things that help people. We do.

    Cons

    It's hard having headquarters and manufacturing be separated by two states. Feels a bit disconnected and siloed at times. Not sure how to fix it other than moving headquarters to Salt Lake City, but I don't think many people would want to make the move from San Clemente to make that happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building the company and provide opportunities for people to grow in their responsibilities and be recognized for the good work they do.

    Pros

    The "open door" policy is followed by all. The pople here seem like they really care, even if they are not

    Cons

    The company is changing. Half the company has been here forever and is overcompensated. They originated from a small business and have been moved around from department to department as the business grew due to the fact they were no longer qualified. The other half of the company are new, OVER compensated management who were small fish in big ponds in years past and came to ICU to be a big fish in small pond. They tend to think they are better than everyone and love to preach without much action.
