    Pros

    -The company product actually matters; these devices are saving/improving many lives -Excellent coworkers (not all) that are intelligent and energetic -Work/Life balance: rare to work that much over a 40hr work week -Changing employee engagement and comp structures -

    Cons

    -Some management barriers: there are individuals who are naysayers/roadblocks and difficult to work with. Some depts can be top heavy -Comp structure is probably around the 50% percentile...altho they have been making strides to imrpove this, throwing equity into some benefits packages -Communication: simple things should be transparante and open. This also applies to email ettique

    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

    Not sure other than you get paid every two weeks and you don't have to do very much to have a career here

    Cons

    Lazy people, and if you try and discipline your lazy and unskilled people then the people above you want your hide. a lot of cut throat activity quality and pride in doing a good job doesn't exist. lots of turn over and very low skill level even in an executive role, skin color helps at review time and will help you keep your job, I wouldn't use the product made here not a chance I was amazed at the below average knowledge and skill level of the leadership here lots of big words very little real knowledge and experience I guess this is why manufacturing make hundreds of parts to get 1 good one and our quality dept. well look at the leaders and you know we don't really understand quality

    Advice to Management

    Think quality


  7. More interested in cost cutting and acquisition

    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".
