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

    Pros

    Great health benefits, vacation and sick leave. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Monthly happy hours were for the click groups. Upper management in one dept was very hard to get along with and very arrogant. Treated others as if below him. Pay raises were very low. Middle management did not enforce practices.

    Advice to Management

    Training was a joke. Need to check background references better before hiring management.

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

    Pros

    Interesting technology to get to work on with decent group of people. Promotions were not a rare occurrence. Company did make attempts to have various fun get-togethers.

    Cons

    Technology, while initially interesting, is repackaged over and over. Once you've worked on one of the ablative devices, you've worked (to some degree) on them all. Engineering group is worked fairly hard with significant schedule pressure.

  8. "Decent place to work, but won't be around long."

    I have been working at ArthroCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for not difficult work. Mostly good people. Only some nepotism and cronyism. Management as a whole is probably a little clueless.

    Cons

    Company is being bought out and most everyone in Austin will lose their jobs. It's a pity, because as jobs go, it wasn't that bad.

    Advice to Management

    Most of my advice would fall on deaf ears - I'm not even sure anyone in management is aware of what Glassdoor does or is for.

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

    Pros

    Superior R&D Department, Involved Management, Cutting edge research and technology

    Cons

    Slow to respond or even listen to the field sales force, errant pre-conceived notions about marketing and implementation of new devices

    Advice to Management

    Listen more closely to the fallout that sales tries to share with management to avoid future identical problems for the other associates.

    They have monthly happy hours, decent medical and dental coverage

    Cons

    Management in several departments, vacation starts at only 2 weeks, ethical problems, unorganized

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees
