    I worked at Animas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Almost all the people who worked there had a strong committment to the customer. They either had diabetes, knew someone with it, or was just passionate about the products and work produced.

    Cons

    Managment that came in from J&J was largely disconnected from this focus and committment on the customer, and the way in which the Animas business worked. They didn't do much to improve the culture, integrate the culture - immerse themselves in what needed to be done to turn the company around.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to a company by digging in and getting to know the customers and the people on a deep level - not just a superficial one.

    I have been working at Animas full-time

    Pros

    People good to work with and enjoy the environment

    Cons

    No accountability, errors occur with little to no recourse.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your managers accountable and you will see fewer issues. Put in qualified people not those with an internal connection.

    I worked at Animas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great co-workers....

    Cons

    Company has demonstrated instability in a market dominated by Medtronic Insulin pumps. Upper level management decided to terminate over 60 nurses used to troubleshoot the pump and manage customers experiencing high blood sugars. Nurses were replaced by laypeople with no medical background. Unfortunately Animas had built a reputation upon having nurses working the Help Desk.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own credo. There is a lack of integrity in practicing what you preach. Your sales reflected the widespread knowledge by customers that a nurse would answer the phone when they needed help. I(We heard from the patients on a daily basis).

    I have been working at Animas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Unrealistic incentive plan. Isn't fair across the board. Seems to be great disconnect between upper management and the sales-force.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please, please take the time to understand what goes on with the sales team. Sit down with an actual rep because the supervisors don't seem to be painting an accurate enough picture.

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

    Pros

    Culture, company values, professional atmosphere

    Cons

    Out-dated technology, management in transition (Teri Lawver has not been President of the company since 2011). The current General Manager (chief executive) is Juan Toro

    Advice to Management

    Legacy employees that have proven track records have been removed from key positions within the organization and replaced with ill-equipped managers resulting in decreasing customer service scores/experiences. Payors, patients and distributors are all effected by these changes.

    Pros

    The people at Animas are great, extremely bright individuals.

    Cons

    Management has shifted directions 3 times in the past year and canceled innovative projects. Several reorganizations have occurred within the past year.
