    Pros

    Steady job. Okay hours. Nice Building.

    Treated like a prisoner. Every year benefits get ore expensive. NO ROOM for advancement. People in the clean room are treated differently then the people in the office. Too much stress. Too many employees hurting their hands.

    I have been working at Advanced Bionics (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Products are good and certain departments within the company are strong. Benefits are pretty good and the flexibility to manage your own schedule is really nice.

    Cons

    Leadership has declined over the years. There are almost zero high level leaders that actually work at the company headquarters. Most of them live abroad or are field based. They don't communicate much with their employees and they provide very few resources to their employees to help them do their jobs. They also have gotten rid of almost all the incentive plans that used to be in place for their sales people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees need and place higher value on them than on your bottom line.

    Cons

    Some areas offer little opportunity to move up or take a long time for advancement
