    I worked at MAQUET for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Maquet people are great to work with, truly working as a team and willing to help when asked.

    Cons

    There are so many products, you need to be constantly training to keep up with the information...but, this Con is a positive for people like me, who like to know more and more about various devices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the personal touch!

    I worked at MAQUET full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The position was well documented - what I was supposed to do. The pay was good and the workplace was nice. The people were nice.

    Cons

    Management when I was there seemed disconnected from processes. It's like the good people had left at some point in the past. It was frustrating to work there because it wasn't clear why some of the work was being done. We had a weird relationship with our overseas parent company. The commute was horrible.

    I have been working at MAQUET

    Pros

    The only thing good about the place was the money and bonuses.

    Cons

    The "C" Levels are only out for the money and themselves.

    The whole HR department should be disbanded and started over. They are just gofers and "Yes" personnel for the "C" levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of everyone in Maquet Cardiovascular and start over.

    I have been working at MAQUET full-time

    Pros

    Terrific people in the field. Very talented with strong relationships. Excellent training.

    Cons

    Where to start? No one here ever hits plan. Dispute this, the clueless management teams continue to pile more quotas and more products in top of an already over stretched sales force. Moral is awful in the field, as no one feels they can attain quota as soon as it's rolled out. Very high attrition rate lately and look for more as other company's target their talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate to the field. There is zero trust that senior management has anyone's back. Stop throwing unrelated products onto the backs of your reps. Quit surrounding yourself with yes men.

    I worked at MAQUET full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary and flexible schedule when needed, benefits

    Cons

    Office staff. The corporate offices still operate as if each department is its own company. Management allows everyone to do what they want or don't want to do. Old attitudes especially from legacy Datascope almost make for a hostile work environment. Too much fighting within departments for control and ownership yet while throwing others under the bus. Sad grow up "professionals" act like this and get paid for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time your team to really see how they interact and treat people. Provide clear management goals and objectives And hold your people accountable when they do not meet the companies objectives.

    I worked at MAQUET full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People who want to do the right thing, helpful and friendly cross departmental relationships.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't communicate to the lower levels. Creates a disconnect where the workers do not feel connected or part of the greater picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the lower ranks and make them as invested in the company's success as you are. Remember that those are the people who make it happen. Without the workers or their commitment, you have NOTHING.
