    I worked at SurModics full-time

    Pros

    SurModics is a company poised for the future. They have very talented, innovative and dedicated employees who are great to work with. The culture is positive and fun with a small company feel.

    Cons

    There are times when resources may be spread thin but that can be a good thing as it allows the company to stay nimble and strong.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Continue investing in the learning and development of the great people you have while nurturing the positive and innovative culture.

    I have been working at SurModics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing is good about this "Flim Flam" Bozo Company!!!

    Cons

    Why the FDA had not yet cracked down on this company is beyond me! Training consists of simply signing a form on a project,(to appear to appease the FDA), without ANY real formal training! Yet the employee is held fully accountable for the results and the "quality"! If the FDA REALLY knew how they ran this business, they would shut them down in a heartbeat. They cheat and hide procedures when they know that the FDA is going to do an audit. Lead weights used to hold catheters in position while coating! (Well folks, lead is a poison!) The FDA direly needs to very closly investigate SurModics With a very fine tooth comb! Medical Device companies should avoid SurModics at all costs, or you may be pulled down with them by the FDA & ISO!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    The FDA is coming for YOU! You're day of reckoning is close at hand! Prison time for YOU, and or huge fines!!!

    I worked at SurModics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, complete in explaining all that is expected of me and they were patient in the training involved in all areas.

    Cons

    Computer work , especially with international shipments. This was accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure orders are sent down to the warehouse asap to aid in both accurate picking and timely processing.

    Pros

    Flexible with time, (ie. being able to leave for an appt and come back to work). Not always so routine. Tasks and projects may vary month to month.

    Cons

    No good checks and balances system for management. No recognition to the hard working individuals which in turn causes dissatisfaction and bad relationships between a person and their manager. 401K matching has stopped for almost a year, yearly raises have simply been cost of living adjustments (if that much).

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and pay attention to who is working and what is being done. Be more appreciative of someone giving their all and their time to the company.
