    Pros

    Great people and flexible working hours made the experience pretty nice. It's a great first internship for those entering their first summer after high school.

    Cons

    Boring location and pretty repetitive work. Not a very dynamic or exciting work environment either.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you coordinate between supervisors so that the responsibilities of interns are not being demanded from multiple departments.

    Pros

    Some good dedicated people, friendly environment, nice area

    Cons

    Management is inconsistent in setting priorities, constantly changing direction, good work is not recognized and rewarded, more of an old-boy network. No accountability, so there is no incentive to produce good work, the perfect atmosphere for slackers to flourish, but frustrating for others.

    Advice to Management

    Think more long term when setting project priorities and be less reactionary. Create an atmosphere that instills confidence that the company is stable and planning for the future, not just putting out fires. Add incentives for managers to promote in order to develop talent internally. Track successes and failures by employee and include as part of annual review process.

    Pros

    Terumo sets an industry standard above any company, I have worked for many companies in my 45 plus years of employment and no company is as professional despite any temporary setbacks, I relocated from the West Coast because I believe in this company and it's strong future. Unlike most companies this large, upper management is never isolated from the workforce, even the CEO Mark Sutter takes the time to greet ever single employee throughout the day and takes a hands on role. In the three tears I have been here I have found everyone is treated with respect and are genuinely friendly. There is truly a work life balance and taking time off is never an issue. This is a one of a kind experience working at Terumo especially knowing there are many that have been employed here for 30 plus years, that says allot for a company like Terumo.

    Cons

    The winter weather, but no one has control over it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep setting the industry standard with all employees.

    Pros

    Good benefits and time off policies, including Christmas to New Year's off. For the most part, the people are friendly and good to work with, but there's always a bad apple in the bunch.

    Cons

    Not much medical competition in the area so compensation isn't the greatest. Roles and responsibilities are never clearly defined.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire contractors and consultants, it's probably in your best interest to listen to their suggestions.

  7. Undefined leadership and lack of accoutablitily creates game playing at the employee's cost.

    Pros

    Very cool technologies. Life saving devices.

    Cons

    The leadership is scattered. The company is working under Consent Decree. Unreasonable deadlines result in rushing work, overwork, and unsuitable results. Consensus cannot be established regarding how to make the hard decisions necessary in order to achieve a sound business foundation. No one wants to be the bearer of bad news - so everyone passes the blame. Flogging a dead horse (often through the weekend) is commonplace.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership, leadership, leadership. Accountability, accountability, accountability.

    Pros

    Laid-back environment, agreeable and friendly co-workers, plenty of opportunities for motivated individuals.

    Cons

    Can seem rudderless. Regulatory oversight (FDA) more tangible than is typical. Management doesn't seem to be on the same page. Seeking advice often results in confusion. Lots of duplication of effort. At times, overtime is overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline - identify most critical issues and attack them first.

    Pros

    everyone is nice, it's in ann arbor, can't really complain you know. Nice building. Nice gravel parking lots.

    Cons

    this company is locked up in a 6 year long consent decree, that means you don't actually do the engineering you trained for, you just do CAPAs.

    Pros

    The leadership is phenomenal. Employees are thoroughly and well trained in their area of work so that jobs can be performed efficiently. Salaries offered are decent for work done, and it is a generally great enviornment to work in,

    Cons

    pressure from knowing that your decisions affect serious situations with patients and their health. Having to do tons and tons of paperwork, and very rarely there will be slight miscommunications among physicians and other staff on the teams.
