    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 a year

    Pros

    CryoLife makes products that save actual lives and limbs. More than half of the "office" consists of R&D labs, tissue processing facilities, surgical theaters, and lecture space. It can be a fascinating place to work.

    Cons

    As a medical devices manufacturer that deal with donated human tissue, CryoLife is justifiably careful and cautious with all aspects of manufacturing, processing, storage, QA, testing, and shipment. They have literal books of processes for everything. Unfortunately, that mentality and control permeates all other aspects of the business as well. As an example, CryoLife is my only employer to require full-time, salaried...

    Advice to Management

    Reexamine the scope and impact of your bureaucracy, and stop treating adults like children. Your culture is costing you efficiency and driving away talent.

    I worked at CryoLife full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The job itself is extremely personally fulfilling. Employees are creating products that save and enrich lives every day. Multiple shifts per day to choose from.

    Cons

    Management has no interest in respecting or fostering a positive work environment for technical staff to create a worthwhile business environment. Pay rate is disappointing and is not consistent with positions in the same field at similar companies. Employees are paid on a manufacturing scale, not a healthcare scale where technicians are exposed to bloodborne pathogens each day handling life saving human allografts....

    Advice to Management

    Create a more team oriented atmosphere where employees feel invested in the company and their opinions and ideas valued. From the technical staff to the managers...instead of just considering the opinions of those (managers) who aren't even performing the work involved in keeping the company operating. Less power to the chiefs, more power to the indians.
