    I worked at Ventana Medical Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a lot to offer. It has been a great name to have on my resume and allowed me room to develop. The management was easy to access, professional, and responsive. The 401k, benefits, campus, and work life balance were great.

    Cons

    The company had many silos, making it difficult to hear of anything outside your department. Most information was spread through lunchroom talk. The company is moving towards being more contract heavy, and the local talent agency does not treat its employees as well as Ventana management did. The company promotes slow, and prefers to hire from within. Its easier to get a higher wage by moving.

    Advice to Management

    Dont move towards a more contract heavy system, or if you do enforce more rules on the agencies you are recruiting through. Your wasting talent this way, and it sullies your local reputation which is really what you need to maintain to keep people coming to Tucson. More transparency about wage growth, and not after two years please.
