    Pros

    Lots of young people and want to engage in activities outside of work and keep the work atmosphere enjoyable. The job itself is good to start with.

    Cons

    Management at TCVS can be difficult to deal with. Hard to be promoted which makes it hard to see yourself at this job long-term. Definitely was underpaid and it was hard to try to move into a different department. They often overloaded you with projects and seemed surprised when projects were not completed on time.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize hard work and pay people fairly for what they contribute. People who are consistently working overtime should be appreciated

    Pros

    The Team I work with is Amazing. They have a wonderful bunch of people who help you a lot.

    Cons

    Well, If you get into the wrong department you are screwed. The bad side for a contractor is that, when you are in the wrong department, you get fired in less than a days notice.

    Advice to Management

    Can be a little more considerate about the contract employees.

    Pros

    they do have good benefits.

    Cons

    Human resources is never around when you need them and then they don't do much to help you with whatever you need them for. Management is a joke. They have a quality policy that they ram down our throats but when the quantity of parts are not out the door that policy is out the door. They do not take the employees into consideration they management is out for themselves. They try not to spend money on things that need replaced that way they get the big bonus for saving the company so much money. Management complains about all the overtime that the company puts out but yet when parts are put out the door with questionable issues that mean rework and it is always the same people. It is not what you know but who you know. If you are tight with the supervisor you will climb the ladder and have the better paying job plus all the overtime you want. It doesn't matter how long a person has been with the company and it doesn't matter how much you go above and beyond to help the company out if you are not one of the privileged ones you get no where.

    Advice to Management

    start replacing some of them {management} make them accountable. If they quit the company why keep bringing them back.

    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.


  11. 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.
