    Pros

    Good ethical company with good benefits. Good people to work with. The products are old but still relevant to keeping people healthy.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be difficult to achieve. Regular reorganization. Unnecessary paperwork. Bureaucracy can be frustrating. Very slow to change. The products are still good but their quality has declined and back-orders are more common.

    Pros

    Great work environment! A lot of opportunities for volunteering and giving back to the community. Great benefits including company subsidized health, dental and vision and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Some departments are split up among buildings creating some logistical problems. Some problems communicating face to face with managers.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have a presence in all buildings consistently. We see our manager a lot for a couple days at a time and don't see them again for weeks.
