    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at Volcano Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Volcano work environment was energetic and fast paced.
    Strong and aggressive sales & marketing organization consistently grew revenue.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities depended on which product you worked.
    Volcano had poor track record of commercializing acquired technologies in part because of under-resourcing product development teams.
    Many middle managers added little value to Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moderate increased staffing levels of product development teams would lead to more commercialization wins. Improved training of middle management would lead to higher retention and better engaged workforce.

    I worked at Volcano Corporation as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    It's an industry that tries to help people have better blood circulation

    Cons

    Dated technology, stressful, lots of blame going around, not a lot of progress to be seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could find better leadership than the ones who were at B.S. during the under-reported fatalities being investigated by the FDA.

    Pros

    since I am working in clean room, there was never a heavy lifting jobs; nice people on the lline

    Cons

    company moving to oversea soon, there's no hope for all of us in manufacturing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    production manager needs to get training on production processes instead of sitting in the office, and find the way firing people.

    I have been working at Volcano Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are great and so is middle management. Great product too!

    Cons

    Some members of upper management need to have a reality check; you can't treat your employees like kids and then expect adult reactions. We are all adults, let's behave accordingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at your teams, not just take the word of the manager that reports to you. Improve the over-all benefits for employees.

    Pros

    Great technology. And the people are decent human beings.

    Cons

    I think "crazy & unorganized" says it all. I don't have an opinion "why" that is, or "what they need to do to fix it". It just is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
