    Great people and innovative atmosphere was encouraged. Great facility with locker room -nd workout space. Healthy lifestyle was promoted.

    Cons

    Poor upper management had no clue when it came to understanding the potential of non-surgical market for stress urinary incontinence until it was too late.

    Stop training too many surgeons with poor skills and inadequate patient selection. Stress quality over quantity before it's too late.

    Pros

    I work with some nice folks.

    Spend my day on the phone trying to get diabetic testing supply customers to also get their medications from our awful pharmacy. Feel dirty tricking old people into this.

    Great opportunities if you're comfortable with ambiguity and execution oriented.

    Cons

    Competing business objectives interfered with clear prioritization.

    Advice to Management

    Throughout transitional activities, a lot was expected of employees. Execs were not emphatic to the unusual demands and missed an opportunity to demonstrate gratitude.

    Pros

    AMS company because of its rather small size required people to do whatever was needed. In a way you get to be exposed to more things and interact with more people. It might change since its acquisition by Boston Scientific.

    Cons

    Not much resources or training for contractors. It all depends on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are really seasoned and extraordinary; some are pretty bad.
