    I worked at Applied Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Relatively friendly to hiring new grads, so this is a good back-up option for your first job out of college. -The company is always expanding its capabilities and bringing on new processes, so if you'd like to 'step up' and take leadership where there is none, you can. -The poorly defined job roles allow you to wear many hats and perform multiple engineering functions, providing diverse experiences. -Friendly college...

    Cons

    -Management loves to micromanage and pretend they're just a small company. A mom and pop medical supply shop with international distribution and a billion dollars in assets. -Management is bad at managing and embarks upon major multi-million dollar projects without a clear plan or realistic expectations. $15 million project with no defined project manager? That's fine, I'm sure things will just work themselves out eventually......

    Advice to Management

    -Stop micromanaging. The group president probably has better things to do than approve/reject individual employees' requests for internet access. Also, employees shouldn't have to wait 6mo-1yr for internet approval either. It's 2019. -Start investing more money in employee retention. Hiring only new grads with a high turnover rate was fine for a stretch of early growth, but that model causes serious brain drain. The...

    Former Employee - Office Job in Amersfoort
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Applied Medical

    Pros

    One can learn a lot about (their) medical appliances

    Cons

    Where to begin? Unorganized, incompetent and to my view internationally totally inexperienced hierarchical & in-house breed management that watches nothing else but their own and each others backs. Unable to take feedback, yet turning head on against you (personally!) instead of the much advertised open ear and open door policy. Their decision making is driven by reactive "thinking" and planning instead of following...

    Advice to Management

    US management should shake the ranks at their EU headquarters. It can't be that managers sit in the office wearing headsets listening to music not to be bothered by staff, ignoring feedback (good or bad) and sacrificing customer service by the most wrong solutions like internal calls ultimately blocking customer lines, bad language skills based on understaffing (based on inability to hire anybody to want to work there)...

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Applied Medical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    structured interview process with amateurs.

    Cons

    High staff turn over. You find out from current employees that they are reluctant to expose new recruits about company culture. After few days you find out even new recruits are leaving. As a company trying to build a solid team in the UK for last 7 years. If you check ex employee profiles they have not lasted for more than 1 year. Unless your best friends with mgt don’t expect climbing the ladder. Check previous reviews...

    I have been working at Applied Medical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have a 24/7 gym and really nice facilities

    Cons

    Management has no management skills, much less leadership skills. They tell you to do what they tell you to do because that's why they pay you. If you are happy to just do whatever they tell you to do without any goals of your own, then this is the place for you!

    Advice to Management

    The company will continue to have high turnover if you do not have the right leadership and good managers to retain team members
