    I worked at Edwards Lifesciences full-time

    Pros

    Good work space, cafeteria, and outside landscape.

    Cons

    Lots of back and forth on what to do about anything and how to accomplish it. Doesn't communicate appropriately, with a realistic agenda. People lose confidence.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate management with great detail on all levels. Floundering doesn't hold value and doesn't get the job done.
