    The people were great; the job itself was just okay.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people, good atmosphere, good company culture.

    ConsLow pay, tedious job, frustrating advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not be afraid to advance people out of their department, even if you feel you can't afford to lose them because they perform so well. Holding people back is not fair.

    OK place to work

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsSome interesting products and medical device experience

    Cons1- Limited opportunity for advancement
    2 - Marketing makes Engineering decisions
    3 - Lack of respect for technical people

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt seems pointless to offer any advice to management. As with many modern corporations the cult of the MBA runs the company instead of engineers which limits the ability of the companies to create new products.

    Still challenged in going from good to great

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Mentor, OH

    ProsVery good benefits, feeling of being connected to healthcare industry, interesting projects.

    ConsSenior mgmt continues to struggle with decision making. Everything becomes a priority hence nothing meaningful is completed. Lots of great ideas stay on the white board and don't move forward. Far too many silos.
    Too many critical customer facing departments go begging for resources while other departments are bloated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn the difference between management and leadership. Do the right things and invest in mission critical resources.
    Stop just talking about being the industry leader and demonstrate that you are.
    Instill a sense of urgency and stop rewarding complacency.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
