I have been working at ABIOMED full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Knowing what you do saves lives. Good work for good pay. Most of the management team is understanding and reasonable to work with. Not a lot of politics.

Cons

In some departments, the work load is heavier than others and people are required to work 60-70 hours per week every week. Some of the executive team are micro-managers and haven't learned to trust their teams.

Advice to Management

Provide what you want done and guidelines and then let your teams execute.

    I worked at ABIOMED full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic product, critical cardiac care device, easy to explain to other people and it really gets their attention. Looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Management by FEAR.
    High turnover rate.
    Unrealistic timelines ,i.e., my project loading was technically over 300%, but this was artificially lowered to look better, realistic loading was closer to 500%.
    No support from management.
    Departments are too lean to be able to effectively manufacture or improve the product.
    With the management philosophy in place people will stab you in the back so as not to be blamed for any delays or errors.

    Advice to Management

    Use realistic timelines, and hire enough people to be able to truly improve the product.

    I have been working at ABIOMED full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company and the work we do really makes a difference in the world and peoples' lives
    Employees get frequent opportunities to hear the stories of the lives that our devices have saved
    They appreciate and recognize those who work hard
    The CEO goes out of his way to know the hard working employees personally
    The company pushes people to do their best
    We have some fun at work

    Cons

    You don't get the "red-carpet treatment" (perks, incentives, trips, all expense paid annual meetings) unless you are part of the Sales Team
    Benefits are not competitive enough (very high deductible)

    Advice to Management

    There need to be more incentives and perks for those who work at the headquarters. At times, it feels as though we're slighted and not appreciated as much as the sales people.
