Pros

Company has great brand that denotes excellent optics, durability, and customer service. Sales force is very knowledgeable. There are many people who have been there a long time and truly care about the company and its customers. Company has global reach providing opportunities for international travel and meeting the top thought leaders. Fairly stable place to work, not likely to get bought out by competitor. Technologies and diseases are very interesting. There are opportunities to make manufacturing and connectivity much better.

Cons

Company was complacent for years and now has to face increasing competition. Top management unsure how to do this, and makes decisions slowly. Seems paralyzed about fixing fundamental problems.

Advice to Management

Take stronger stance toward manufacturing quality.

    Pros

    If you do not like to work under pressure, this is the place. New releases development time is measured in years, not months, deadlines can be extended and generally it is pretty relaxing.
    Benefits are good, time off is generous, and pay is not bad for what you do.
    And you get to create software that is actually used by almost every doctor out there; there is enormous satisfaction in seeing your brainchild at work.
    And you get plenty exposure to different aspects of medical devices world - hardware, systems, clicnical. So if medical is in your blood, you might consider it.

    Cons

    The exposure to new technologies in the field is not optimal; depending on current project in the spotlight you might end up shifted between projects at very short notice. Knowledge sharing is sub optimal, you will have to find your own way around in most cases; if you do not you may be reinventing the wheel and nobody is going to tell you about it.
    Overall, it depends on how willing you are to take initiative. The more you do the more responisbility you are taking, and that might backfire in the end. Oh, and do not hope for quck promotion, people work there for ten-fifteen years

    Advice to Management

    Fresh blood infusion is badly needed. Make sure the pay is commensurate with the person's input, not the age. And dont reinvent the wheel
