    Pros

    Great organization built on tradition and values. Excellent work-life balance. Individual growth prospects if one can cross the initial barriers.

    Cons

    Many in the workforce, especially those in middle management and below have had very limited exposure to diverse cultures and people. This reflects in surprising levels of prejudice even among younger employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and win the trust of the lower level employees.

    Pros

    Nice family owned company. Friendly staff.

    Pros

    - Some exciting recent acquisitions
    - Collaborative environment
    - Work-life balance
    - Good pay and benefits
    - Interesting work
    - Very accessible executive staff

    Cons

    Culture of mediocrity in some functions, not a lot of diversity, not enough focus on growing talent

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your best and brightest talent, create opportunities for them to grow, and reward them appropriately. Take a close look at your senior-level talent - expect more of them. Ask which of them are truly driving value and which are taking spots that block others' growth. Be willing to make bold and difficult decisions.

    Pros

    Important work that affects real people in the health care industry.
    My wife was connected to a patient monitor I helped release during an operation.

    Cons

    Quality assurance gridlock is unprecedented. Disconnect from the executive level and design / development / testing teams is gigantic. Massive layoffs / outsourcing / pay cuts in the last 6 years have hit morale hard. Direction of company seems rudderless.

    Advice to Management

    Stop re-inventing the wheel, upgrade the wheel, invest in your employees rather than outsource things that are eventually brought back in-house to be fixed.

    Job challenges that allowed for professional growth within the company.
