    Pros

    Many benefits of the company. You got to learn a lot of different parts of the company at a very fast pace. If you worked in the quality department from a few year ago, you would be able to learn documentation, CAPA, complaints, QA, QC parts of engineering and projects.

    Cons

    The company changed dramatically and lost what they were known for once GE purchased them. After 5 years with GE, GE sold them to Carefusion who decided to close the company down 5 months after they purchased them. The assets were shipped down to Mexico for manufacturing purposes.

    I have been working at Vital Signs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This was a great company; it was small enough that everyone knew what was going on and how it affected each and every area. Lots of responsibility and hours, the the reward was worth it.

    Cons

    GE placed the first nail in the coffin by putting systems into place that were inappropriate, excessive, and costly thereby taking a very profitable company into a limping one. CareFusion acquired company in January 2014 and placed the final nails. Operations in Totowa and Colorado are closing with manufacturing moving to Mexico. Currently there is a skeleton crew (contractors) and the organization is sliding in quality, quantity, and international presence. CareFusion executive managment is blind to what their staff is doing as well as their lack of expertise and experience with running this type of organization and product line. They will be done by December 2014; only the brain dead are left.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the talent and experience that is in place and find out what your "three year old" experienced staff are doing to the new acquisitions. There is absolutely no integrity, ethics, or morals. They bit off way more than they can handle and will cost them the international presence as well as customer loyalty.

    Pros

    Customer service was unlike any other sign shop I have ever been to or worked for. They went above and beyond to make sure the customer got exactly what they wanted.

    Cons

    Before they stopped smoking inside, the smoke was pretty overbearing

    Pros

    Awesome benefits. Pay either met or exceeded my expectations. The collaboration with my co-employees, engineering, and management was awesome! I felt part of a family in the work place.

    Cons

    I don't really have any CONS regarding Vital Signs. If you do your job you are hired to do, you are faced with less cons. The only con I can think of was leaving Vital Signs to join the military which brings me to the point that my position lacked growth but getting a more education can spawn from the position as a calibration tech to growing into engineering or even maintenance.

    Advice to Management

    It was awesome working for Vital Signs. If I could return to Colorado, I would request back my employment with Vital Signs.
