    I worked at MAQUET

    Pros

    room for growth. food was good.

    Cons

    Lots of changes within the company. Seemed to be lots of people talking about issues and other people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what you say and who you say it in front of. More meetings about state of company.

    Pros

    Great and very helpful staff supervisor. Always willing to help and make you better and teaching about real world situations.

    Cons

    Basically a desk job as an intern. The only hands on work is testing/measurements which gets boring really quickly if you are the only co-op. Job does not really require much brain power.

    I worked at MAQUET full-time

    Pros

    Professional staff that will bend over backwards to help you do your job. This make you want to help them to succeed as well. Highly technological products built with state of the art tools.

    Cons

    Immediate management and above set unrealistic goals. They criticize and belittle persons who don't make the goals and punish people who speak out about making the goals more realistic. If you are not "in" you are out and have no way of getting back "in" no matter what you do. In order to keep salaries lower, they criticize work product unfairly. HR is basically a tool for the company and does not mitigate issues between management and the worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you workers with more respect or as the job market opens up, you'll find more and more people leaving.

    Pros

    Great and interesting Medical Devices, Good training and support staff and hard working field service support.

    Cons

    The company management has abused over worked and grossly underpaid the internal staff and support services to the point of ruining the company reputation in the USA. The international or European headquarters are clue less of the abusive practices that accuse in the states.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the USA management and promote the hardworking low paid support staff.

    I worked at MAQUET as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great processes, technologies, and products that enhance life. Worked with a great bunch of professionals. Beautiful campus and facility in Wayne, NJ.

    Cons

    Contractor / consultant pay rate ended up being much less than originally promised. Contractor / consultants are not proactively indentified by HR and functional managers for possible permanent positions within the company before their term is about to expire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your contractors / consultants. They are the one who come off the sidelines in the 4th QTR and OT to deliver that game winning TD for you.

    I worked at MAQUET as a contractor

    Pros

    Work with some very talented and kind people. Operators in manufacturing plant are wonderful and hardworking.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, no team environment, no honest communication between different position levels. Upper management persuades FDA rather than accurately address the MANY issues that arise such as customer complaints on products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take psychology classes to teach you how to deal with others in a professional and respectful manner.

    I worked at MAQUET (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 (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.
