    Pros

    I have been working Jazz for a few months now and find that what you are told by the recruiters is accurate - the place is a good place to work, salary and other comp is really good and benefits are of a high quality. More importantly, people are friendly and truly want to know what you think regardless of your level.

    Cons

    I have not seen any issues so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    The company really wants to listen to what the employees have to say! They try to implement change based on feedback. Managers are down to earth, employees are friendly. We work hard and play hard! The compensation is great! Benefits, stock options, vacation etc are the best Ive ever seen.

    Cons

    Some negativity amongst the employees, but that comes with any company you work for. Annual bonuses are "so so" Departments are too segregated.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing great! Continue to listen to us and send out those feedback questionnaires more often! Give back a little more to the employees in way of bonuses or stocks!

    Pros

    Good people to work with and for.

    Cons

    None really. The company is doing more in the EU and that could be a pinch depending on what you do at Jazz.

    Advice to Management

    Try to do more here on the home ground.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good people, management actually seems to care about employees and about patients, good incentives, opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Certain areas of the organization seem to have a lot of fluff/people who aren't doing much. Others are so busy they can't see straight. Growing quickly and there isn't necessarily proper distribution of head count between groups.

    Advice to Management

    Invest deeper in analytical infrastructure to rely less on contractors. Decrease the number of meetings under the banner of "everyone needing to collaborate" which at times make it impossible for people to get done real work. That said, overall it's an amazing place to work.

    Pros

    Great small company that has that warm family feel. Your voice is heard and management treats you like the professional that you are.

    Cons

    Because the company is a publically traded, the stakeholders can make the decision at any point to dissolve the division.

    Pros

    The people are what make it great. Everyone has a job to do and they do it with great pride knowing they are respected and appreciated. The company culture is the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Change can come slowly and being a smaller company there is increased risk for the long term. To date, the only negative comment would be the incentive compensation plan. It's simply not a level playing field. It's apples to oranges and not apples to apples. Large volume territories suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be willing to make changes when need be but most importantly thank you for being who you are and being simply the best.

    Pros

    People and senior management, IT department. Jazz has ambitions to be the best company that they can be. The senior management are very smart, accessible, and experienced. I craved all the direct business exposure I had with them. I think this management team has what it takes to be successful.

    Cons

    Not enough financial support for internal projects

    Advice to Management

    I think the days of extended release life cycle extension are numbered. Need to modernize business model
