    Pros

    Great work life balance, and people are fairly compensated for their job function. People freely share information and collaborate.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for movement up. If you are looking to grow and have a career path, you need to be looking at larger companies. Because its a small to midsize company, there is not much growth potential.

    Pros

    Nice Co-Workers Good Work-Life Balance. People aren't afraid to take vacations that they are entitled to.

    Cons

    A very stifling and stiff office environment. There is a lot of red-tape to navigate, and depending on your mindset, it can be tough to navigate the said red-tape.

    Advice to Management

    Let the subject matter experts have more control over their work and thought process. FDA guidelines can be adhered to without stifling workers.

    Pros

    Nice environment, easy commute, 90% pleasant people, cool perks to work here.

    Some people can be rude and condescending. The job can be hectic enough without being spoken to like your a child. One bad apple will ruin the bunch.

    You know who the problem is. Do something about it.

    Company provides a service that has an amazing impact on on improving the quality of life for the dialysis patients that use it. Extremely rewarding to see the positive change it can make.
