    I have been working at ACIST Medical Systems full-time

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers.
    Excellent pay and lots of vacation time and paid holidays. Full week off with pay during Christmas holiday week. Love it. Great workout facility on site!

    Cons

    Would like to have more cross training opportunities. My commute to Eden Prairie isn't fun . . . hate 494 construction!
    Wish we had a small cafeteria on site for lunches instead of bringing my lunch in every day, but it's ok I guess.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about a new location . . . we are growing out of this space. Thanks for everything! Love it here!!

    I worked at ACIST Medical Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Generous Paid Time Off (for US based company)
    2. Competitive Compensation
    3. Competent Colleagues (many of whom have left since late 2015)

    Cons

    1. Lack of Accountability - Company repeatedly downgraded outlooks between 2012 and 2016 with zero changes to senior management; Responsibility lies in part with parent company Bracco
    2. Listless R&D Organization - Company repeatedly failed to refresh primary product for >10 years; New product introductions were repeatedly delayed due in part to lack of urgency and direction; R&D roadmap was unstable
    3. Unproductive Culture - Regulatory organization had abysmal record of securing regulatory clearances; Operations organization made only timid changes to support shift to catheter-based products; Sales and Marketing organization promoted an uninspiring and anemic growth strategy

    Pros

    - Competitive salary
    - Fair PTO
    - Flexible Schedule

    Cons

    - Private company with no profit motive
    - Extreme segregation between functions with poor communication.
    - Management team- there are no leaders in this company. Very poor communication from senior and middle management on key objective and focus areas. No detailed business plan near or long term. No accountability for poor performance. Poor resource distribution.
    -Not able to capitalize on R&D investment. Poor pipeline going forward

    Advice to Management

    You should be leaders and clearly communicate a comprehensive business strategy with objectives so that your team can execute. Engage your employees with straight talk and actions instead of glossing over the issues. This company is the product of low expectations.

    I have been working at ACIST Medical Systems full-time

    Pros

    PTO is the only pro especially since most days are spent reading the news.
