    Pros

    Talented and Fun Coworkers Salary average

    Cons

    "Real" Training is Non-Existent Employee Morale is very Low Executive management disruptive and counterproductive to the product development process. Employee confidence and trust in management is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Develop real strategies for growth and then actually try to stick to the plan. In the incredible efforts exerted to meet the established goals for your yearly reviews, it is clear that you have overlooked actually doing your jobs.

    Pros

    Challenging work in a demanding field with satisfaction in designing product to help people with spinal problems.

    Cons

    Damatic swings in leadership efforts toward fixing issues. Many words spoken about intent to fix issues without any willingness to get their hands dirty in Correcting issues or to foster an environment in which fixing problems is paramount.

    Advice to Management

    Foster an environment in supporting a strong CAPA system. Spend some money to do the job right the first time.

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent colleagues, fair about time off, good work-life balance. Overtime rarely expected. Tuition reimbursement is nice and it's a friendly, moderately paced place.

    Cons

    Typical mind-numbing cube farm, little recognition and because corporate is so stingy with promotions, people get bored (and insulted) before anything is done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize people's talents before they bail. And own up to your mistakes instead of pointing fingers.
