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

    Pros

    Small company feel; technology driven, focused on being a market leader with high quality products and services.

    I really enjoyed my time at Radiometer and would gladly work for them again. They offer an opportunity to work in the medical device industry and global exposure.

    Cons

    Challenges with delivering on technology; Danaher Business System (DBS) can stifle the innovative prowess of this organization.

    Pros

    Excellent work - life balance. Reponsibilities neatly spelled out, nothing extra is usually added. Middle management is working management. Excellent benefits, Salaries very competitive for job title.

    Cons

    Upper Management is clueless as to what it really takes to work "in the trenches" and views everyone as replaceable without thought. Very political..."open door policy" will hit you in the butt Owned by danaher which means you could be sold, or merged at any time. Nearly impossible to move up without leaving the company due to extreme experience requirements. Has no culture, or values, bottom line is the almighty $$

    I worked at Radiometer America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Initially it was a very friendly and focused company that was the world gold standard for blood gas instrumentation. Very dedicated personnel.

    Cons

    Lack of new products. Current develoment of new medical device is over 3 years past due. Had multiple problems with current medical devices that took years to correct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very stringent atmosphere. Morale is very low overall.

    Pros

    Excellent interaction with motivated team players on the regional level. Middle management generates a comfortable work environment and provides guidance and mentoring necessary for success as a business unit.

    Cons

    Corporate management could be more open in sharing information that effects field business units. Changes to equipment and software along with problems encountered is not always communicated or communicated promptly.

    There is a tendency to handle personnel issues at a distance. They have a tendency to do things remotely and not try to put a human face on tough decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open and prompt communication of changes and problems encountered is a major need. You need to personalize your relationships with field personnel. Promotions, awards and recognition for jobs well done as well as admonishments and releases done at any level should be done face to face whenever possible.

    Pros

    Very high quality products. Very educated and technically competent associates. Growing industry. Medical technology is the place to be. You can be very proud of the products.

    Cons

    Management only believes what they learn from Denmark. US salaries don't compare to competitive US companies. They are particularly interested and driven by sales and not by marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what is meant by "bottom up" marketing. Trust product managers to make decisions for products. Realize that American is not Denmark.
