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

    Pros

    The culture was great and my sales counterparts in other regions were friendly, nice and always willing to help. Verathon definitely does a fantastic job finding good quality talent and promoting from within. The products are good, the training is good and the customer service and support is very good.

    Cons

    Restructuring leaves uncertainty for employees. Need to add new products.

  2. Current (new) management drives Verathon onto "a new low"

    I worked at Verathon

    Pros

    Current products are still selling

    Cons

    Timeline before quality & compliance. Non-existence of work-life balance. A very skewed workplace

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop throwing people under the bus and stop your selective hearing. E.g., made people present best case timeline and ignored all the listed risks. When those risks popped up, you threw people under the bus – this kind of behavior must stop.

    A company with terrible management and little in the way of product development

    Former Employee - Engineer in Bothell, WA
    Former Employee - Engineer in Bothell, WA

    I worked at Verathon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some bright people
    Niche technologies
    Backing of a major corporation

    Cons

    Work/life balance does not exist
    Schedule is the only thing that matters; not quality, employees or "doing the right thing"
    For a 29-year old company there are major gaps in corporate structure including Quality, Manufacturing, Engineering, and Marketing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turning Verathon into "a platform for future acquisitions leveraging the talented management team" does not require the hatchet job currently being carried out by "talented" management. The rate of attrition is staggering and the end result will be the continued loss of bright, dedicated, long-term employees.

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere with pretty decent benefits

    Cons

    Parent company has been making drastic changes causing confusion and chaos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the customers needs. They will take their business elsewhere if no one can answer their call or fix their broken units for weeks.

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the trenches, good products and support from team.

    Cons

    Upper management is on a lean/six sigma warpath which is disrupting daily operations and creating fear among the employees.

    Pros

    Verathon's culture is laid back internally with a very friendly environment, there are a many great people that work there. They offer pretty decent benefits and recently increased the PTO for their employee's.

    Cons

    Constant Change in Customer Care Department, Lack of concern regarding customer's coming first, new management and supervisors, no direction! Parent company has come on board and started reorganizing the company, lots of change going on at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your Customer Care department, you are losing valuable people with lot's of great knowledge! Too much change all at once create's chaos.

    I worked at Verathon

    Pros

    Very successful company in the medical industry with great benefits, and work life balance.

    Cons

    As a compnay that started in the creators garage, it has grown beyond its capacity, and old ways of doing things don't work when a company gets this big. Since they have been bought by Roper, they are finally getting the support and standardization they need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to learn how to manage a larger organization.
