    I worked at Applied Medical full-time

    Pros

    The people at Applied Medical are great to work with. Applied is a growing organization that helps people with their medical devices.

    Cons

    The company is a family run organization. Many family members are in management positions. Base pay is very low compared to other companies in this space. It may take years to get a pay raise and the bonuses are small. They often promote employees and give them more responsibility without giving them a pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Quit keeping the money for yourselves and pay your people competitive salaries. If you don't do this, you will begin losing people when the economy gets better and your competitors start hiring.

    I worked at Applied Medical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -One of few employers hiring entry level
    -Lots of technology to learn

    Cons

    -Lack of compensation and experience
    -Expectations are unclear, ever-changing, and rarely met
    -Mandates, reorgs, and vision comes from top
    -Limited communication and strategy to planning
    -Lack of feedback & "No one is safe" in regards to job security
    -Company name has a bad reputation, a long tenure is a bad mark on your record
    -Short term results favored over long term objectives

    Advice to Management

    Give feedback and be transparent. Hire some management with experience so diversity is brought to the company. Don't sue your investors.
