    I have been working at CryoLife full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    In my opinion, the people at CryoLife are the best asset! Overall, CryoLife passionate about what the company does (making products that save lives), and they are quick to help their co-workers and their community with a cause.

    Cons

    Many changes (which will lead to a better future) mean growing pains for today's employees. Doing more with less has been a theme for a few years now, and it can be stressful and wear on you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team leaders and employees who are in the day-to-day trenches as you develop realistic strategies for continued growth and for moving forward.

    I worked at CryoLife full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The only reason to really stay here is because of the competitive pay.

    Cons

    Although the pay is competitive, you get treated like dirt. Management only cares about numbers and does not care about the morale within the team. They pick and choose who they like, and if you aren't one of the chosen ones, they will make your life miserable. HR is an absolute joke who have no idea about what is going on or how to fix something if you go to them. If you have a problem with your paycheck, good luck on...

    Advice to Management

    Get managers who actually know what they are doing and put them through Management training. Train HR on how to properly deal with HR matters. Actually care about your teams, your team is what ultimately drives the company.

    Disconnected and unapproachable Upper Management. Only interested in driving numbers. Sales force feel a lot of anxiety, who will be fired next. Team spirit has disappeared over the last two years.

    I have been working at CryoLife full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    CryoLife has been around for over 30 years. This is a "pro" because it shows that the company is intent on being stable and has projected plans on how to serve people by improving and possibly saving lives of patients needing specialized cardiac care. As a company, CryoLife strives to keep talented employees and encourages innovation all while maintaining a watchful eye on regulations and other compliance needs to...

    Cons

    CryoLife has been around for over 30 years. This is also a "con" because companies can be entrenched in "this is how we have always done it." There is, at minimum, a three-pronged approach to update how CryoLife does business. First, all employees, including management, are involved in process improvement. Second, they are also ensuring that the company has effective and innovative products to offer doctors to help...

    Pros

    Culture and morale has improved massively over the last few years.

    Cons

    HR is a disaster. Was much better 5 years ago. Have had several pretty large scale layoffs in the last few years after change of CEO and acquisitions.

      Pros

      Processing tissue is an amazing experience. Knowing your taking someone else's donated gift and helping others with it is very rewarding.

      Cons

      Management needs training. They seem to not care for their employees, just the numbers they put up.

      Advice to Management

      Treat employees like the smart, educated and talented individuals they are instead of a production assembly line. Happy employees want their numbers to be great.
