Pros

This stuff really does save people's lives
Great pay and benefits
Most people at the working level are great to work with

Cons

politics, politics, politics
nobody's got your back so decisions are made for personal rather than overall considerations/benefit
forget about mentoring; it's all about scapegoating
bloated bureaucracy; even mundane decisions are subject to escalation

Advice to Management

critcal care is constantly pushing people out the door to bring new ones in. It hasn't worked, doesn't work, will not work. Empower employees and open up channels of communication without fear of reprisal.
Will there ever be another employee satisfaction survey?

    Pros

    Great culture, extremely friendly co-workers. Well staffed, adequate tools and resources to complete tasks. For the most part, documents and files are extremely organized making assignments easier to complete. Cafeteria onsite was extremely convenient.

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism and difficult to get promotions. Difficult to get opportunities if you don't already have the experience.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I really like the products.
    There are some really good people.

    Cons

    It is very political with some people much more supported.
    People have learned that any information given from below a VP may be overridden.
    Lots of scape-coating by management blaming the middle levels.
    Information is not shared so it seems random even if it should not have been a surprise.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people. Support them and let them do their jobs.
