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

    Pros

    Daily management communication meetings, monthly all employee communication meetings, free gourmet coffee/tea and supplies, company cookouts/ice cream/etc. for safety milestones or just for fun, monthly birthday cakes/cookies/donuts, very inexpensive vending machines in break room, safety focused environment, general concern about employee welfare, annual Holiday party, and extremely generous end of year bonuses. The current upper management is highly qualified and more experienced than past management. The main focus is on compliance and patient safety.

    Cons

    The vast majority of employees at ACell are happy and work together cross-departmentally as a team. If you are not happy at ACell, then the problem is you.

    Good product with some amazing applications and results

    GET FDA APPROVAL FIRST and stop shoving the product down people's throats!!

    Pros

    The technology helps patients. They work hard to make employees feel appreciated. There is a lot of positive change taking place under new leadership. People who work hard are often offered opportunities for advancement. The compensation is fair.

    Cons

    The sales team needs to be kept more engaged. Health benefits aren't great. There are some people that are averse to change and can make things difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive momentum. Help everyone feel more connected to the organization's goals - share the big goals as well as regular progress updates.

    I have been working at ACell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is coming from a corporate employee viewpoint - I can't speak for the sales rep experience.

    I've been with ACell around 2 years and I love the job. I've been able to make significant advancements in my career during my time here. There's a good culture, good management (for the most part), very positive atmosphere and supportive coworkers. Each day brings new challenges and opportunities to apply myself in different ways. The monetary compensation is very competitive as well.

    Cons

    I have a few gripes with individuals but nothing I'd attribute to the company as a whole. We went through a senior management change which at the time was a little off-putting (old management was well-liked), but the new leadership seems solid as well.

    Pros

    Best technology out there. Very relaxed atmosphere, with people who enjoy the life part of the work/life balance. Its a private company, and it not bogged down by corporate bureaucracy. Over the last couple of years, the company has changed for the better.

    Cons

    For the sales team in certain territories, lack of prospective clinical data and access to outpatient reimbursement can make things difficult

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and growing the company and the revenues!

    I worked at ACell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting product range of animal tissue for human use. Nice offices and canteen area (no food). Some good people, but these tend to leave.

    Cons

    Very top heavy management structure with not enough knowledge of medical devices. Ego of a department VP’s was absolutely astonishing.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture and try to retain talent
