    Pros

    Really great employees to work with.

    Cons

    More work is being outsourced (both manufacturing and development) which translates domestic plant closings and leaving less to do for current technical staff at remaining facility's.

    Advice to Management

    Organic growth is critical to every company's sustainability.

    Pros

    Great entrepreneurial spirit. Lots of growth

    Cons

    very sales focused. Need to also care about quality and R&D

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a more holistic and global approach to talent sharing, they buy their talent, for a premium, so there is no historical culture to anchor the company moral compass,

    Little to no control over current contracts or GPO's that now dictate practice or buying patterns.

    Pros

    Wide variety of commodity-type devices

    Cons

    401k is a 3% employer match - very low for the industry. You must work there 4 years before you are eligible for the employer match - this is definitely walmart style. R&D investment continues to trend down and is one of the lowest in the industry - less than 3% of net sales.

    Advice to Management

    None. This company is too far gone. It's like putting lipstick on a pig.

    Pros

    Good Company, descent benefits, intelligent people co-workers and mid management level are easy to work with. Great company to create a career.

    Cons

    Little to no training once in your job function. Management budgets for training but it often gets cut. Lean organization that says what they think employees want to hear but usually don't tell them all the facts.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, offer continuous training even to management and mid-management shouldn't be given the left overs / crumbs when it's time to give out stock options.
