    Enough with the technical training, already!

    Pros

    Glassdoor wants me to talk about good things, so here goes: the health benefits are really good. I hear the benefits are better in the Midwest because the big hospital system that owns trimedx is based out there but compared to where I was, the costs are lower for pretty much everything. They match the 401k (but it’s got a different name…and I really don’t like paperwork but there’s no way around that. They don’t give you a car but miles are reimbursed and that shows up pretty much in a week or two. There is this training program for managers and engineers which I have always thought was the way to bring people through the ranks. My manager is kind of inexperienced but he tries hard and he is pretty smart. The recruiter told me the work schedule would be predictable and so far that is correct.

    For the benefit of other technical people, they use their own software for PMs, repairs, parts, and a whole bunch of other things. It's far from ideal but I challenge anyone to show me a tool that works better.

    Cons

    I think most people in our field like to go to technical training. I used to like to go but im at a spot where I can work on most anything in my field and the training isn’t necessary for me.
    I just returned from a week of training and was told as soon as I got back that I’m going back to training in a few weeks. I know what you are thinking: life could be worse, right? The problem for me is that I like working on equipment and that’s pretty hard to do when you are spending a lot of time in a classroom in Wisconsin, TN, or Ohio.
    Maybe Im becoming grumpy as I get old???

    Pros

    The work-systems are excellent. The technical software is homegrown and it's the best I've seen. I hear it's being replaced and the new system has bugs but the platform is good.

    I get a lot of support from the corporate office. It's faith-based but not force-fed. My annual review is coming up and I've never worked for a company that takes it so seriously.

    Cons

    I don't work long hours but when I am working, there is no time for anything but work. For remote employees, it's difficult to see who exactly is driving the ship and where it's going. E-mails come out and we get updates from the bosses but that's all back in Indianapolis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate strategy better (please).

    I worked at Trimedx full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent program
    Cost saving to customers
    Reliable RSQ system
    Good backoffice support

    Cons

    Dictatorship
    Care less about staff and their expertise
    Money is their one and only concern, even though they express otherwise
    Worst treatment for employees that could be in the US
    You always feel under appreciated, and can be fired at any moment
    very narrow and short horizon, especially VP positions
    Doesn't allow growth, unless you are the abiding to the dictator regardless of the customer needs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of looking for ways to cut costs, start looking why your turn around is sooooo HIGH,
    Break the wall built by the VPs, listen to suggestions directly from the source, and not through the hierarchy channel, cause again, it will hit that wall

    I have been working at Trimedx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for 6 years and each year has yielded a new experience and a new challenge. Great challenges and things to learn. No two days are the same. Great people to work with. Passion for saving lives and you feel good at the end of the day when you go home that you really made a difference.

    Cons

    The main challenges are adapting to change. Just when you think you have something figured out, it changes. The industry is complex and sometimes that is difficult to grasp. All in all, that is a good thing though...you will never get bored or content. If you like maintenance mode, don't come here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at us as a $500M organization. We are well past the $150M mark, so lets start acting like it. WE need to make some changes to turn that corner. Don't be afraid to over hire on talent and hire to the bench instead of day to day. Get ahead of the curve.

    I worked at Trimedx full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Strong benefits program. Stable environment for those doing at least average work. Exceptional investment by the company in BMETS. HR Seems to be well-funded.

    Cons

    No career planning for salaried associates and minimal training opportunities. Different work rules for different departments. Performance review process is set up to make everyone look average. Constant churn of policies and procedures (e.g. Switch to Front-Loaded PTO, Salary Bands, Travel Demands, Travel Policy) all seem to benefit the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what Talent Acquisition is promising new hires and make sure they follow through. Make genuine efforts to promote from within. Quit moving the goal posts - there's always one more thing that needs to happen before we're "done".

    Pros

    job security, faith-based participation optional, core values are legit. More new faces by the day it seems. I've had two bosses so far and no complaints about either of them.

    Cons

    more work to be done than time to do it. There are a few too many bean counters as of late. I guess that comes with the growth???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start doing town-hall meetings again. They were great and I always felt informed.

    I have been working at Trimedx full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great if you're an employee of their central office (project managers, VP's, etc.). Big salaries and high fives are all around.

    Cons

    Bad decisions have been made in regards to already overwhelmed technicians taking on additional equipment responsibilities which were originally the facilities engineers' obligations (sterilizers, bed repair, etc.). Some demands made on technical staff have absolutely nothing to do with their day to day responsibilities, mostly due to management not understanding or respecting the profession. Serious lack of faith in technicians' judgement in regards to calling in vendors or sending out devices to vendors. Management staff are being hired on with less and less hospital experience. Technician advancement is only available in the form of relocation or becoming a "plus one" manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop delegating work to technicians that should be done at the central office level (excessive data entry, procurement follow ups, constant device inventorying). Validation teams and data entry/admin staff at the central office level should be managing these responsibilities. Stop taking on equipment that is outside of the technicians' skill sets just to sell a contract. Get your own house in order before taking on more hospital accounts. Hire management/directors who at the very least have some biomedical/clinical engineering/healthcare experience.

    Pros

    Benefits are the best I've ever seen, definitely lives their core values, opportunities to perform volunteer work, good internal promotion opportunities available.

    Cons

    Rapid growth and the adjustments that come from it require everyone to be flexible. Things to change rapidly, but they are changing for a positive reason - growth!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication would be great.
