    Pros

    Good pay. Company does well in industry.

    Cons

    I was excited to get a job at Edwards. But I'm so disappointed in what has gone on there. Instead of a great opportunity and support, I got managers who can't make a decision because they don't want to be accountable for anything. Mangers, supervisors and project managers talking trash about employees 10 feet from where the same employees are working overtime to meet deadlines so higher ups can get THEIR bonus. Nada for us. Managers yell and scream and write nasty emails to leads and include all people in the department. Managers assume employees have made a mistake, call them out on presumed error, but no mistake was made. Colleagues ask for 'help' with projects then take full credit for other people's work. Colleagues only throw each other under the bus and don't help each other. Employees get very vague direction and when something isn't done exactly right, employees are blamed although they're just trying to do what they can. Mandatory overtime. Edwards seems great on the outside, but stay away from here unless you really need a paycheck. You won't get an opportunity to move up unless you fit a certain demographic.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of what's going in your department and how higher ups treat people. I would be embarrassed of how some people are treated as if they are stupid and incompetent when they just have bad leaders and no direction.
