I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time
The company has maintained a small company feel where relationships and contacts matter at times more than merit.
Comparable if not better compensation when compared to similar companies in the area. The company has been performing extremely well financially other the past years, which has really made it a great place to work.
Corporate politics can be frustrating.
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edwards Lifesciences (Newport Beach, CA).
Edwards recruiter phone screen followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. After that, 4 on-site interviews lasting 3 hours total. Recruiter kept me in the loop the entire time on the status. Overall the interviews were average/easy in difficulty, with only one semi-technical question. The rest were questions about my resume and general experience questions.
