    I have been working at ABIOMED full-time

    Pros

    I recently joined Abiomed - (we are experiencing incredible growth right now) - and on-boarding experience was one of the best I've had anywhere. The interview process was great - they moved quickly, but were very thorough. (Before starting, I saw some negative reviews on Glassdoor, and now that I'm here, I have to say - I don't understand how they could be true.) People I've encountered are genuinely nice and genuinely happy to be working here at Abiomed - people smile in the hallways. They do a great job making sure you feel comfortable from the minute you start. Everyone here is working toward common goal of saving lives one patient at a time, and you can feel that. People work hard, but it is not a cut-throat, competitive environment - it's friendly, everyone is working toward the same cause. Compensation is generous. We are in high-growth mode, which isn't for everyone, but the work environment is wonderful. You're held to a high standard here, but all of us here should be - Class III medical device. People here are fantastic - this is an amazing company to work for.

    Cons

    A couple of the benefits aren't as strong as those at past organizations.

    I have been working at ABIOMED full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company and the work we do really makes a difference in the world and peoples' lives
    Employees get frequent opportunities to hear the stories of the lives that our devices have saved
    They appreciate and recognize those who work hard
    The CEO goes out of his way to know the hard working employees personally
    The company pushes people to do their best
    We have some fun at work

    Cons

    You don't get the "red-carpet treatment" (perks, incentives, trips, all expense paid annual meetings) unless you are part of the Sales Team
    Benefits are not competitive enough (very high deductible)

    Advice to Management

    There need to be more incentives and perks for those who work at the headquarters. At times, it feels as though we're slighted and not appreciated as much as the sales people.

    Pros

    Great to be apart of something that's helping save lives! This company is everything. Abiomed has a great working culture. There's a lot of hands on and you are able to have a voice to implement ideas. This company is not like others, where they treat production workers like nothing. They acknowledge and show appreciate for the clean room operators. There's so much diversity. And everyone tries to work towards one common goal.

    Cons

    This place is the best. There aren't really any cons. You will only succeed here if you have a positive attitude and can adjust easy to many growing changes. The cafeteria or vending area should get the AVANTI Market because there are no close by places/stores to grab lunch or a snack if you've rush to work without a meal.

    Advice to Management

    I'm happy to be apart of this growing company.

    Pros

    I have been at Abiomed a couple weeks shy of 5 years and I cannot say enough great things about this company and the people. No matter what job or role you have within the company, you are frequently commended by the CEO, executive team, patients and patients' families for being an integral part of saving people's lives. It is very rewarding and fulfilling being a part of this company's work.

    Cons

    I have no cons to speak of

    Incredibly friendly and smart people to work with. Very calculated and hard working. The company actually does a lot of good in the world of medicine making the experience even more meaningful.

    Cons

    Temporary structural restrictions with a quickly growing staff and a not so quickly growing building. Great time to be a part of the company with such tremendous growth.

    Keep working hard and treating people right and you will never had a lack of talented people wanting to work for you.

    Pros

    Abiomed is a great place to work if you like to work hard and be appreciated for it. Employees are invited to quarterly meetings with the CEO who pulls no punches. You run into executives in the hallway, and many times they know your name. While the company expects a lot from their employees, but they give a lot back too.

    Cons

    The company is growing, and sometimes this means changing gears quickly. Follow directions though, and you will do well.

    Great products and MISSION. Company focuses on "Patients First" and that is really cool no matter what your role is within the company. We all work hard! If you work hard you will be recognized.

    Continue to focus on the people! I have noticed an improvement in this area and it feels good. I want to be here forever.
