    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

    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

    Small company with a very approachable CEO. Generally, a very well respected field sales force. Minimal micromanagement. Very patient centric

    Cons

    Slowly becoming more like big pharma. Hiring process is haphazard. Very little follow up from Talent Acquisition, potential employees left hanging in the wind.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better grip on Talent Acquisition, they talk a good talk but don't practice what they preach. Keep the field force motivated and they will continue to perform highly.

    The people and corporate culture are very attractive. Innovative and niche products.

    Small company that doesn't have many job openings because no one ever leaves!

    Pros

    I always got my pay check

    Cons

    Supervisors were wishy washy and specifically wanted me electronically available 24/7 for contracts that take 6 to 8 months to complete. And yes I worked through every holiday or vacation

    Advice to Management

    I work hard when expected and little to none recognition.

    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

    The position provided many challenging opportunities for me and it is a growing company.

    Cons

    Company is still trying to "get its act together" from acquisitions and misses some opportunities, particularly with the employees are the the east coast since the headquarters is out west.

    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!
