A good organization, but struggles to adapt

Senior FIN Analyst (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Sunrise Medical

ProsSunrise Medical provided a good work life balance and flexibilty, the Finance team was a very cohesive well run group.
Also provided reasonable oppurtunity to grow.

ConsThe business Eexctuives were slow to react to changes in the manufacturing arena with all of the outsourcing to China, and therefore possible lost some opportunities for cost reductions.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more innovative, to enable you become the market leader.

Once a Great Company In Dire Need of Leadership, Product Innovation, and Consistent Management

Sales (Current Employee)
Longmont, CO

I have been working at Sunrise Medical

ProsThe people are holding the company together and that creates a tight bond with your co-workers. HR does a good job with limited resources. If you are in the right crowd, expense are never an issue

ConsNo leadership from top management. Poor product development, suspect quality, and terrible corporate culture. The constant change in senior management has caused serious problems with the culture, product vision, and customer relationships. 4 VP of Sales in 5 years and 3 CEOS in 5 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time developing innovative products, holding Engineering accountable, and developing consistent Sales & Marketing strategies. By the way, Cannizzarro is no longer running the show.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Cannizaro did not bring change, Sunrise change Cannizaro to another Hammes. Bring back Chandler!

Engineer (Former Employee)
Longmont, CO

I worked at Sunrise Medical

ProsManufacture products that improve people's lives.

ConsUpper Management and their decisions to cut cost in exchange for a quality product. Employee morale is all time low as jobs are being moved from the states to China. Too corporized as an associate culture is gone as you are just an employee for the corporation. They do not promote family values and all they care is the bottom line.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop doing business with China. Listen to lower management as they have found ways to manufacture at current sites and still be competitive with China. China maybe inexpensive piecewise but quality is poor and inconsistant. In the end, China bought products will equal US manufactured products with all of the customer complaints and product returns.
