    I have been working at ACell full-time

    Pros

    Great culture. Puts forth work to constantly improve it. Good pay. Great work life balance. Good benefits and PTO.

    Cons

    At all levels, a few employees are not willing to change their perspective for the betterment of those around them and the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote your talented people from within. Let your no's be no's. Need a culture identity and a structure put in place to live by it.

    I worked at ACell full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    - a few great people ie knowledgeable, nice - good starting salary - HR tries to make holidays and birthdays fun

    Cons

    - no direction from upper management and a lot of cancelled projects - a lot of unethical and hidden secrets - no chance for advancement unless you are favored by upper management - you probably won’t be doing the job you were hired to do

    Advice to Management

    - keep trying to sell the company because essentially that is what upper management and the board wants

    I have been working at ACell full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Product works. Patients heal. Comp plan that keeps you engaged. I have a great manager (your results may vary). VP of Sales and CEO are great.

    Cons

    Outpatient reimbursement is not great. No car allowance. Other wound care companies have reimbursement programs that walk offices/hospitals/clinics through every step of the process to ensure reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Outpatient reimbursement needs to be addressed, imho.

    I worked at ACell full-time

    Pros

    Nice people work here now.

    Cons

    The deterioration of compliance to minimal compliance has taken its toll on the company and employees. Lots of frustration by employees as machines are constantly not being maintained thus not working properly, people management is pathetic at best.

    Advice to Management

    restructure and be willing to put into the company what you are expecting out. Remember the definition of insanity.... applies here

    I have been working at ACell full-time

    Pros

    Life-changing medical device company and the employees take pride in their work. Patrick McBrayer has proved to be a leader of stability and growth.There is a long list of how ACELL treats employees well, pretty much an open door policy for communication. Celebrations of some sort every other month such as donuts, cakes, cookouts. Special events twice a year....summer and winter. Flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    Some supervisors lack good communication skills. Some employees have negative thinking and don't comprehend how well they are treated. Those who may have legit concerns arent willing to come forward with management. Management can be very patient in coaching workers to the point where it can be a drawback. Smaller company so others seem to know everyone's business.

    Advice to Management

    Create an open forum of communication. Being able to have communication with anonymity to management might benefit employees and management

  7. Empty promises. Unrealistic expectations with no reasoning

    Pros

    401K You get paid They pay for your phone. Customer service is supportive. Great products. Some decent approval at accounts. Educational labs. Straight forward ARS system.

    Cons

    Double standards / discrimination. Promises of getting a car or at least car allowance but never happened. Unrealistic quota with no data to back it up. High turnover and almost everyone in the industry knows how high it is. Huge gap and almost zero communication between upper management and sales people. Not enough studies. Sales team not getting enough support from upper management. Expenses are a pain to be approved....

    I have been working at ACell

    Pros

    Mostly friendly coworkers make coming to work less miserable and the company does try to do nice team building events on a monthly basis. There is a general sense of comradery between coworkers.

    Cons

    The experience at the company seems highly dependent on the manager under whom you work. Because the standards for each department are variable, some find themselves working under a relatively lax manager and have a good experience while others find themselves working under somewhat tyrannical bosses who expect far more of their department than other managers do of theirs. Because of this, there is often a perception...

    Advice to Management

    Holding every department to different standards is to some degree a plus in terms of allowing flexibility for very different jobs within the company. However, when the differences between the departments seem arbitrary and based on the whims of the management, the workers frequently feel like they are simply tools to be used rather than valued employees.
