    Pros

    The pay is good, the hours are good.

    Cons

    it is so political and back stabbing people. Everyone seems to be out for themselves and if they can get someone in trouble they do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop all the cry babying and back stabbing people employees.

    Pros

    Stable company from a stock prospective. If you are on the heart side you are good. Watch out on all other verticals in this organization. It is all about the heart!

    Cons

    Focused solely on shareholder and maximizing profits quarterly. Decisions to RIFF thousands of employees due to poor upper management decisions in the first place. Long time employees released on group phone calls no regard for professionalism.

    Pros

    - Everyone I have met here takes pride in what the company does and the company's mission
    - The company values work and life balance. Very flexible in general as long as you get your job done.
    - CEO does care to keep in touch with all the employees, he regularly conducts all employee town halls
    - Good benefits in general, vacation days are on the lower side, unless you have worked there for a while.

    Cons

    - Most people get stuck in their roles for a while, little room for advancement. Looks like HR focuses more on year of experience than individual's talent/contributions for promotion.
    - Little emphasis on career development.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more room to grow and advance their careers.

    Pros

    Innovative company! We make some truly great devices! We save lives and help people live better lives through our devices and therapies. Good Medical insurance is best benefit, but it's declining as of 2015. We now have to jump Through a bunch of nauseating health programs and activities (we must do), if we don't we must pay $50 additional per month for our medical insurance. ($600 a year more) new regulations and cost due to ACA also known as Obamacare. Dr. or specialist visits are now more costly than ever, and out of pocket has already gone up as well as co-pays.

    Cons

    Do more and more in less and less time or hit the door. We've actually been told in recent meetings If we don't like the policies there's the door! This place over last 3-4 years has turned into a (Hyper Micro-managed) less friendly and hostile at times environment.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not satified with your output regardless how much you do or increase your speed. This is the least caring management I've ever experienced at the company. Raises, have been 2% across the board for all employees for the last 5 straight years. During the last two fiscal years the company has done very well, people ask all the time and they will not pay more than 2% raises. The only way you can get more, is if you are promoted and that has been very rare the last several years. They really don't want to hear what you have to say. Get to work and stay working.

    Pros

    1) Truly believes on mission and vision, 2) Good insurance/benefits, 3) 401K match up to 6% of employee contribution, 4) Competitive tuition reimbursement for undergraduate and graduate programs, 5) 4 personal holidays aside from company holidays and vacation

    Cons

    Across-the-Board, minimal annual merit increase does not motivate employees to contribute more or be fully engaged.

    Advice to Management

    Some members of senior management are better at managing up and need to be more in touch with all levels.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pretty secure job.

    Cons

    They use the fact that they are a large company to avoid having to pay employees what they are worth. The company continues to bring in millions of dollars in revenue but we only see a 1-3% raise in pay each year.

    Pros

    A highly organized, scientific and professional work environment.

    Cons

    To many steps in the stairs, Ice machine runs out of Ice, Left over Pizza from meetings is cold.
    All hallways in production look the same. Should be numbered or colored. There should be an internal mail delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pursuing the progress that you have been accomplishing so far.
