    I worked at Aesculap USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked here 10+ years and had a great experience. Great pay and benefits. Executive team and upper management are approachable. Plenty of training opportunities. Employees engaged in corporate wide program to improve culture including inviting employees to be on culture committees.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities at US corporate headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Some supervisors do not have leadership and especially mentoring skills. Solid leaders are mentors and prepare their employees to go to the next level. Recommend training for this.

    I worked at Aesculap USA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Actual work was challenging and meaningful. Management was secretive and not supportive. Finger pointing was the norm which created an uncomfortable work environment. The best part of the job was that most of the people working there (non management) were very nice.

    Cons

    Management was the worst I ever encountered!!

    Advice to Management

    Middle Management needs to be held to a higher standard. When a department is letting good people go look at management!!

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

    Pros

    Free food on birthdays. That's about it.

    Cons

    For a so-called "family" owned company, they offer zero flexibility (no work from home).
    A rigid and stagnant work environment with basically the upper management making all the calls anyway.
    100% gray tops at corporate, the antithesis of innovation.
    Women and minority, you will not be successful here.

    Advice to Management

    GET WITH THE TIMES

    Pros

    Aesculap is an organization strongly committed to its employees, the quality of it's products and the integrity with which it operates. The current CEO Chuck DiNardo can be trusted and has a vision for the organization that he wants Aesculap to become and has committed the organization to make change happen.

    Cons

    Accountability is lacking at all levels of the organization, while it is a great focus, change of that scale rarely happens quickly and especially slow at Aesculap. Driven employees are often dispirited by non-performers or nah-sayers.

    Advice to Management

    Let the organization get out of it's own way and move with full speed towards the goal. Historic ways of doing business have to be gotten rid of and there should be zero-tolerance for those who don't want to perform.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Mostly good people to work with. Family owned company in Germany, which means a lot of people at the central office with a lot of experience and knowledge.

    Cons

    Grew too big, too fast, resulting in some people being promoted above their ability and unable to think as "large" as the company is. Extremely sales dominated, if your not used to a culture where sales has the final say, this place is not for you. Company is currently a tacital company, not a strategic one.

    Advice to Management

    Smart growth is better than big growth, and growth without profits is no growth at all. The decisions you make now are for the future.
