    Pros

    Learned alot both professionally and on a personal level but that was the result of after picking you self up after a failure. Also made alot of friends both in my department and as well as other departments.

    Cons

    Leadership is more then willing to let others take the fall when something goes wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that things are going to happen and that no one can be available 24x7. Also understand that no one is perfect and that a person who is under the gun isn't always going to make the right decision every time.

    Pros

    Better than average salary and all the overtime you could want.

    Cons

    They own you! Management will not listen to advice on how to improve workload and work flow.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! Those you trust and promote are looking to take you down.

    Pros

    Hourly is the only pro.

    Cons

    Constant mandatory over time, the company doesnt care about the patients they only care about the numbers, NO training it is sink or swim, if you have any medical problems at all do not work here at all, i had to fight tooth and nail to get my last pay they paid me 1.50 through direct deposit and i had to fight to get my money owed. Absolutely NO work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Give proper training, care about your patients and employees!!!!!!!

    Pros

    ZOLL has really great benefits, a fantastic work environment and good leadership within the company.

    Cons

    The only real complaint I have about this company is that, although they do allow many paid days off, holidays are not given off.

    Advice to Management

    Allow bigger space within departments for personal growth.

    Pros

    Pay is not too bad if youre in the right department. Ive heard not so encouraging stories in other departments but am pleased with my pay and my department. Very nice facilities/environments. Family feel to the environment. Benefits are not too bad but could be better.

    Cons

    HR is a total joke! They are clueless most times and act annoyed if you inquire about anything. Tuition Reimbursement is not the greatest. They want the best of the best but dont want to fork the money on promoting within or growing current employees. Some "clique-i-ness" does go on. Parking situation is horrendous and little help is given when someones car gets wrecked by the valet.

    Advice to Management

    Consider growing current employees rather than bringing more people from off the street. Cut back on the temp to hires and start bringing in at least some direct hires in manufacturing. Establish a better standard when it comes to review time. Most employees are confused at to what the standard is or what their yearly goal is. Most dont even know what a developmental plan is. Managers are not on the same page most times. One manager will allow certain conduct in their department that are not permitted in others. Rules should be across the board.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good, most employees only work 8 hour days -- but many managers of salaried workers believe you should work more. there are no corporate holidays, but they give you 11 floating vacation days on top of the three weeks, for you to take on national holidays. This is nice because you can choose to take off certain holidays or save the day, but most departments have policies that at least one person should be in the department at all times, so watch the "low man on the totem pole" vacation time when you request off.

    Cons

    Engineers and Marketing paid competitively as well as hourly employees, all other salaried employees are paid poorly. Upper management has no idea of the work being done in their departments. Middle management not much better, my manager now has no experience in our field, yet was promoted before other qualified people. Politics play a huge roll in promotions, if you don't agree with management, understand you will never be promoted. Favorites are clear among management.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves and start to value the every day work. If you don't know how it is done, go and find out, get into the trenches before making lofty goals and major changes to the processes. President of LifeVest is a clear example of this.
