    Pros

    Close to home, very short commute. Most of my co workers were awesome, and most of us got along really well

    Cons

    No streamlining!!! Their solution to streamlining was to force overtime on everyone instead of looking for ways to cut out unnecessary steps. Would not listen to team members on ways to improve even though some of those team members came from a competitor who underwent the same challenges and succeeded. Worried too much about each individuals "earned hours" instead of becoming better as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    When you hire someone away from a competitor who has massive experience in helping to streamline, you might want to listen to what that individual has to say on making improvements

    I have been working at Advantis Medical full-time

    Pros

    Friendly work environment with decent people in middle management positions. Interesting product and manufacturing processes. Convenient location off I-65 for work commute.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for advancement. No good employee recognition program to reward hard work, seems to reward random things instead of merit based. Rewards include free Pepsi, Pepsi doesn't pay the rent. Low on pay scale for average in Midwest. Also has become less of a family feel to more corporate and definetly money driven at all costs. Seems once a person is trained and performs well, more is piled on him/her for same compensation until they become freustrated and choose to leave. Feedback on job performance only offered once a year at annual review.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees in all departments with more than Pepsi to both increase morale and motivate employees to do better. Increase pay for better performing employees to reduce turnover and losses to competitors and other industries. Check national pay scale to become more competitive to attract and retain talent.

    I worked at Advantis Medical as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, lots of overtime if you like that~

    Cons

    Their quality operating system is terrible, the only way they are interested in fixing quality problems is to make the quality department work more hours, instead of improving processes in the manufacturing systems

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    It may or may not provide as a springboard into a better job.

    Cons

    CEO change near the middle of 2011 was highlighted by several operational problems, and later lead to a drastic layoff near the end of 2011/beginning of 2012 because unrealistic target profit goals were not met (as well as unrealistic expectations of employees). Management can be inept and work in a cyclical fashion, quality can be impaired by assumptions due to a lack of Good Manufacturing Practices and product defects routinely pass inspection, inventory organization is non-existent, and while numerous good employees work hard regularly with no recognition, others who are inept are allowed to carry on.

    Advice to Management

    You're going the wrong way!
