    Being part of Johnon&Johnson is a good thing

    Middle management never has consensus and therefore delegates contradictory tasks to their departments.

    Create personal developmen plans, reach consensus before assigning tasks to associates.

    I worked at Acclarent full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic start-up culture in big business environment. Highly collaborative interdepartmental cooperation, and ownership of the business at every level of the organization. Strong focus on compliance.

    Cons

    Highly risk averse to the point is sometimes binds the wheels of progress. Business relocated to combine with other operating companies, some functions outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Outsourcing the highly trained and engaged customer service function to a 3rd party call center will undoubtedly impact to the overall customer experience. Customers will have to adjust to a new level of service.

    Pros

    compensation & benefits, where things got done, great vision, full of hard working individuals (well, the honest ones), fun company perks/extravagant parties and expenses (maybe not a pro, but it's a luxury, for sure) & of course amongst evil, there is a glimpse of hope/good people

    Cons

    Where the devils play- politics GALORE. From 2009-2012, the evil that probably stem from HR destroyed what was once good about this company. Also, you need to put in a lot of long working hours, which is not a con at all if everyone does their fair share, but clearly only honest people work hard while the devils are at play.

    Advice to Management

    stop playing games, just stop. People are good but you turn them into your pet slaves and ally with those just as sneaky and sick as you.

    This was a great job. I really enjoyed working here. There was a lot of room for growth and senior leaders listened.

    Needs more innovative products to continue to adapt in the ENT space. Competition has taken much of the market share and there needs to be an answer for that.

    Pros

    It's was a great place to work at in 2011. LoL bagel Wednesday's and benefits are/were good. Some of the people are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    We're all out by November and so give us a call if you need help. There's still some talent to be rescued. The sudden over application of red tape is horrific!

    Advice to Management

    Keep people happy, specifically the sales staff.
