    Pros

    Above average compensation, investment in technology, high quality professionals with relevant experience

    Cons

    Most of the aforementioned experienced professionals have been laid off or ousted from leadership; management now focused on nonsensical project metrics and babysitting employees. Cronyism is rampant and over-rules meaningful product/process development.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what contributed to the success of the company in the first place, and realize quickly for the sake of your employees where project management has led the company in the past three years.

    Pros

    Solid products, and employees and a value for end users.

    Cons

    The diabetic products market is difficult. Medicare reimbursement decreases have made innovation and technology unjustifiable. It has also led to layoffs and poor working conditions. The employees are pressured for a business model that now is not what the HQ in Japan thought they had bargained for. That creates dissention. And it doesn't help that the company monitors employee communcations leading to a lack of trust. Scary place....

    Pros

    People are friendly. Good benefits. Many older employees with long term employment at company.

    Cons

    Much inter-departmental rivalry. Much favoritism. Intra-department problems not dealt with properly. Poor management that does not support staff...supervisors lie to keep their job. Company CEO pushes his political views during "Town Meetings" by blaming company's poor performance on government policies...encourages employees to vote his way. Company's problems with FDA is blamed on individual employee's poor performance rather than management taking the responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Hire solid individuals with integrity and willingness to take responsibility for their actions without fear of losing their job. Re-structure department management and encourage better communication.

    Pros

    Very good income potential. Great group of clients to work with. Sales team is good, but reorg is really impacting our quality of people.

    Cons

    President and CEO is not what you expect from a solid company. Nipro achieves in spite of him. Direction of the company will continue to go south until he is replaced with a competent, professional, and respected leader.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the President before it's too late. He's poisoning the culture and work environment.

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to wear many different hats. Management does not micro manage. Thje atmosphere is very positive and fun to be part of.

    Cons

    Sales team not the sharpest knives in the drawer including the SVP, this makes it difficult to execute corporate strategies in a business that is quickly changing .

    Advice to Management

    Replace SVP of Sales, rest of the senior management team is top notch.

    Pros

    Nipro Diagnostics offers great benefits and training for its employees, and you may even receive a bonus . Management understands work / life balance. A lot of new business is to be had for this organization.

    Cons

    You must be willing to accept illogical direction from management, expect to either be part of the clique with management or not. Management tends to play the favorites game and seem to pit members of their team against the other. It ultimately depends on your willingness to tolerate office politics, or join in it. Be prepared to feel alienated in your roles from time to time.
    No employer is perfect and every employer has its unique set of challenges. Nipro Diagnostics is no exception.

    Advice to Management

    Seek advice from your employees, not just the favorite ones that feed you what you want to hear. Welcome questions that challenge whether they (and you) are delivering value or not. There is a department with high-turnover within which the Manager needs to be re-assessed. Case in point, an individual was recently terminated because his knowledge was a threat to the existing Compliance Manager's credibility. Managers should surround themselves with smarter, talented individuals, so the job gets done.. not be afraid of them. It takes just one disgruntled employee to jeopardize a multi-million dollar business deal and scar the company for years to come.

    Very little is done to develop employee's for the "next" opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into training your staff.
