    Pros

    Good company to grow with, many good changes for the better. It's a good time to be with the company as the company is growing organically, putting good people and management in place, working on colleague development and engagement understanding and realizing their people are the greatest asset. A lot of room to grow but moving in the right direction.
    Good work life balance, flexibility allowed in some functions which is a plus. The fitness center is also very nice.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than most competitors so they need to work on that. Still some senior leaders that do not demonstrate Integra's values. Some weak managers, some people who get promoted with no or weak management skills. Morale is low, high turnover- company is working on that so hopefully they do so.

    Advice to Management

    Need to retain good people, pay should be on par with other companies at the very least.

    Pros

    Exciting market - neurosurgery. Some cool products, and great engineers.

    Cons

    Cheap management, poor choices for leadership in Neuro at the time. Chris Thatcher was a joke as a leader insulting to almost every one he led and met.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain consistency, invest in people, no more managing per the latest book you've read.

    Pros

    Company products and improving the patience quality of life is good for everyone.

    Cons

    Executives, management, and anyone above contributor is not trustworthy. If you're not working at corporate headquarters, all bets are off as far job security is concerned. They'll close you down even thought you're told not to worry about it. May the people in N.J. feel our pain someday with regards to losing ones livelihood without a second guess.

    Advice to Management

    Try something unique "Be Honest" with yourselves and your employees.

    Pros

    You can probably work here forever with your 1-2% annual raises. Very stable job. Most of your work family is easy to get along with.

    Cons

    There's never enough money applied to fixing problems so the same issue plaguing you 6 years ago is still happening. Chronically short-staffed for the amount of work expected- but you don't have to let it bother you. Everyone else will have meltdowns around you. Being a satellite manufacturing site, it's nearly impossible to get support from the corporate headquarters unless it threatens to be a public problem (i.e. an FDA audit that doesn't go well). Then they all fly in to "support".

    Pros

    Company is still evolving and defining it self. Offers a lot of opportunities and training. Management is strong and visionary. Good benefits all around.

    Cons

    Slow at hiring open positions.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job driving the company products and strong compliance efforts. Please realize that positions that are not filled do affect existing departments and functions. Don’t abuse the people that work so hard to continue to make the company great.
