    Very few achieved sales plan due to unachievable sales goals . Every year management put more pressure on its sales force to pull in business . Many times customers would get angry with our pressure tactic which was not lead to a health long term relationship.

    I worked at Mindray as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Many different medical devices with an international presence. Personal growth with regard to FDA experience.

    Cons

    Very little company pride or cohesiveness. I never felt as if I was a wanted or necessary member of the organization in my time at MIndray. Virtually all proceedings must go through the headquarters in China, making for various obstacles such as time and language barriers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better, more friendly company environment.

    Pros

    Good pay, high level of independence, decent benefits. Chinese ownership was willing to listen and was willing to change if ideas were proven to be correct

    Cons

    Mindray is a very lean company so sometimes, people were asked to do multiple jobs. Strategic vision may not line up with market trends, so future viability may not be there for US market.

    Former Employee - Middle Management In Finance/Accounting Department in Mahwah, NJ

    I worked at Mindray full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Employees have worked there for many years and are usually very supportive of each other. Overall atmosphere is pleasant. They provide great health benefits and reasonable time off with pay. Environment is clean and they bring fresh fruit for the employees as an afternoon snack. The cafeteria is nice and reasonably priced. 401K is adequate.

    Cons

    Poor communication between the parent Chinese company and its US Headquarters. Language, cultural and overall poor understanding by the parent company regarding standard business practices in the US. The company is very "top heavy." In the Finance department there were at least 6 managers and only 5 analyst/support people. Foreign auditors (Hong Kong/China) have poor understanding of the English language. US Management is unwilling/unable to communicate with their Chinese counterparts how business is conducted in the US. Lack of turnover in Middle Management has left little room from innovation and creativity. Processes are manually driven and there is very little automation. Company policies and procedures are not properly documented, standardized or analyzed in order to streamline processes. Consequently there is little room for process improvements. Departments are territorial and often unwilling to work with other departments to resolve problems. Some of the managers assigned to oversee specific departments do not have the skills, background or even a slight understanding of what their subordinates are doing. Human Resources poorly managed and employees (despite the open door policy) are not supported. Managers discipline subordinates in front of peers and either via email or verbally in person. Management's lack of understanding of day-to-day employee duties and time it takes to accomplish tasks, makes them ill equipped to make decisions that streamline and automate work. Additionally their lack of understanding of standard business procedures results in poor choices.
    Managers take credit for the work performed by subordinates. There is also a pervasive culture of sexual discrimination by a handful of Managers. Lastly Senior Management show little respect for their subordinates by making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize policies and procedures. Place managers overseeing several departments who have experience/training in the areas that they are overseeing. I would also recommend that the Human Resources Department obtain additional training on Employee Relations. Managers should lead by example. Many times, subordinates stay working well after their Manager has gone home for the day. In my specific department it was not unlikely that my Manager would leave at 5:30 pm everyday, while we, the support staff would often stayed till 8:00 - 9:00 pm, sometimes as late at midnight. There is no additional compensation for non-exempt employees who work 60-80 hours per week, and to add insult to injury, subordinate employees usually have to explain why/how/means/methods of their decisions. Management should have a working and detailed knowledge or their respective departments and use that knowledge to provide adequate staffing and/or MANAGEMENT should come up with solutions for streamlining processes.

    I worked at Mindray full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fascinating insight into workings of Chinese company. Looks good on resume. Chinese employees with USA college degrees well respected. Cheng Minghe is exceptionally knowledgeable. Liu Jie is also a good leader, but he's overworked, given all blame, and is now out.

    Cons

    Inexperienced, totally unqualified, incompetent Chinese employees, especially with USA college degrees, are assumed to be more suitable as decision-makers than highly qualified non-Chinese. Provably incorrect Chinese advice almost always trusted more than experience-based non-Chinese advice, except if from expensive outside consultants. Mindray has eliminated almost all non-Chinese R&D personnel, including cutting hundreds of USA R&D after acquiring Datascope. R&D therefore now focuses mostly on figuring our ways to copy Western competitors' products without violating patents. Credit always goes up; blame always goes down, so if a product doesn't sell well, it must be sales person's fault. Also leads to frequent replacement of R&D head, or R&D restructuring. The CEO will never change a clearly stupid decision because that would be admitting error, which, by definition, is impossible. International focus and sophistication severely lessened when CEO Xu Hang left. CEO Li prefers to focus on small, domestic, Chinese problems and competitors he understands rather than big, more dangerous non-Chinese problems and competitors he doesn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let somebody with clear international vision and experience run the company, or flatly admit to investors that Mindray is not going to be expanding in non-Chinese markets but rather will continue to rely on Chinese government tenders.
