    I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences (More than a year)

    Pros

    Innovative technology and treatment for patients. People will go above and beyond to deliver patient treatment and it is humbling to be a part of.

    Cons

    The company continues to work in silos with another business unit established. Very short-sided and lack of optics on optimal team structures to financially benefit organization and patient treatment costs. Benefits are sub-par, senior leadership is not visible, no vision and frowned upon if you have a life outside work, especially children. Minimal work from home options.

    Advice to Management

    People first, live the Credo, quit tolerating poor performance.

    Pros

    Exceptional Company; Great people and products. "Life is Now" is a model most live by with a strong focus on patient needs. Very smart people and Great Corporate culture.

    Not really many cons as long as you perform as management has high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is very solid and driven to create great products but sometimes it can get too political at Senior levels.

    Great people. A lot of smart people everywhere. Good perks with cafeteria, active lifestyle, and benefit packages including health, dental, stock options, and bonuses.
