    I worked at Sunrise Medical

    Pros

    Sunrise 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Be more innovative, to enable you become the market leader.

    I have been working at Sunrise Medical

    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Manufacture products that improve people's lives.

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.
