    I worked at LifeWatch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was great. Great co workers

    Cons

    Management was unorganized. The company fights unemployment after releasing you and they have no compassion for their workers. You are a number in this company.

    Advice to Management

    You should give people opportunity for growth. Have management opportunity. Give raises to the employees. I worked there for two and a half years and recieved not one raise. Work with your employees not against them.

    I worked at LifeWatch (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great co-workers, pay was decent

    Cons

    management was horrible at the time, extremely unorganized, no communication, no chance of ever moving up and growing within the company, hostile environment, your treated like children

    Advice to Management

    respect your employees, please, if you show just a little bit of respect and input some kind of appreciation incentive (small bonuses or employee of the month, something anything) people would appreciate it. after the years I've been there to have been treated the way i did would have to say leaving was bittersweet, I was sad let what i worked so hard for go but i literally was going no where within this company. its really a shame because i would have stayed had the management team been better. i actually really liked the job itself but again management at this time was horrendous I'm so glad i left and am at a better place now where in 6 months I've moved up and have been given things that I've asked for from lifewatch but never saw such as a better schedule, bonus, raises, respect and being treated not like someone beneath you but an actual team member...its really sad but i guess its ever man for himself right? also for a company who works in the heart monitoring field i would have expected there to be more out reach and more community programs for healthy living, giving back to the community and taking part in charity events that may help promote a healthy lifestyle....just saying

    Pros

    Nice work life balance, great colleagues and workplace. New management has new ideas and fresh attitude. Climbing up the ladder is slow.

    Cons

    Low salaries and bad people management. Slow career advancement. No new projects. No bonuses. No learning possibilities and very strict procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Very big middle management with undefined roles. You have bright and brilliant people in low levels and you must address them or they will leave.

    Pros

    High Salary and opportunity for bonus

    Cons

    Zero training for new employees, management is horrific, gives no direction and attempts to micromanage to the point of tripling tasks. False promises, no job security, each person for themself. The product is dated, huge lack of innovation and sales numbers are at the mercy of patient reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Show compassion, invest in your workforce, don't be so quick to throw your team under the bus. Train!
