    I have been working at ArjoHuntleigh full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Arjo is the opportunity to work with the remaining people who have any integrity left.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge about Arjo is the destructive culture that breaks people's spirits. If you can survive here, you can survive anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Management is overwhelmed and underpaid. The many problems at Arjo stem from a workforce who passes the buck, and HR is too weak to turn those people over.

    Workforce that's growing indifferent, no inspiration

    Advice to Management

    Drop shared services, commit to a vision and strategy and retain the talent you haven't driven off

    Pros

    If you want to add some function or experience to your career, than ArjoHuntleigh / Getinge Group can help with that. However, I wouldn't plan on being here for a long time. The slow pace will wear you down. Plus, the leadership turns like a revolving door and they get B players at best. The one good thing (slightly negative from a different perspective) is that this won't be your most strenuous job. If you are good at what you do, chances are that they will like you and you will continue on. However, don't look for them to advance your career.

    Cons

    Very slow pace. Excruciatingly slow. Leadership turns over all the time and nothing gets accomplished. There is really no sense of urgency. If you think they have your best interests or any interests for that matter, think again. The HR team is abysmal.

    I worked at ArjoHuntleigh full-time

    Pros

    If you suck up to board members (ELM) you can possibly get ahead.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Routine to have conference calls with global headquarters in Sweden at 4am due to the time zone difference and senior management ineptness.

    Since the systems were not set up correctly, the CEO and former CFO cooked the books to fool global so they could close the books at month end. The billing system did not work correctly so customers were dramatically overcharged and many refused to pay, resulting in many customers leaving for Hill-Rom.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower management and pay heed to their warnings. Stop falsifying documents. Hire better quality employees instead of those that graduated from night school with a 'C' average.

    Pros

    Have your own vehicle, tools are provided, and you get to interact with people. Set your own schedule.

    Cons

    No room for personal growth and lack of opportunities. There's no team effort, everyone is in it for themselves including management. A lot of lies and gossiping behind each others backs including management.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire management that already has good leadership skills.

    Pros

    Some good people are still left.

    Cons

    Had a complete lack of strategy. They purchase companies, suck the cash out without any investment, and layoff to cut cost as they lose revenue. Products are old and tired. See comment about leadership below. It's depressing to work at a place that is managing the downward spiral. Everyone I respect and trust there is looking.

    Advice to Management

    Recent turnover at top good, but still need to reassess leadership. Too much activity is around self preservation so executives don't take risks or invest in the future.

    Pros

    Lots of coffee flavors. Serisouly...that's it. Pay is average. Company was continuously growing which would appear to be a good thing.

    Cons

    You are expected to work the most rediculous hours becuase they are so behind in 1. Technology and 2. LEADERS. They have plenty of managers but no LEADERS
    For all those extra hours you would think you would get a few comp days right? Wrong! I'm talking 7am-midnight on some days. REDICULOUS! No compassion at this place.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders and get rid of the managers that were never taught how to manage!!! You need a huge improvement to the on boarding process and a major change in attitude of interdepartment communication. People there are just plain RUDE! Create an open door policy. Don't allow your "managers" to shut out their employees. Be a little more accomodating.

    Pros

    Good parent company offers above average benefits

    Cons

    Salaried employees are expected to work late nights and weekends and do the work that the hourly people don't finish in 40 hours (no overtime for hourly because that would cost money). Then management brags about margins... unreal workload that never gets better, downsized for no apparent reason and dumped already overwhelmed employees with extra work.

    Advice to Management

    When the economy gets better, you will see most of your people leave.
