    I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are nice and young. Fresh minds and faces. Profit margin is ridiculously high. Lots of meetings and status reports so you can't stray too far from the road.

    Cons

    More pretentious people! Much more luxury cars in the parking lot than companies that have higher average income. Lots of meetings and status reports taking time from actually doing work.
    Young people put more emphases on actions without spending time on alternatives.

    Advice to Management

    Great job so far! Keep those meetings going!

    Cons

    Managers change frequently. Don't expect a promotion under this circumstance.
    Top heavy organization.
    Co-workers commonly transfer before completion of (any) projects. It will be a mystery what some employees are actually working on.
    No rationale why particular employees receive promotion after promotion. Also, it is typical to offer management positions to outside candidates.
    Certain managers not accessible or approachable. Will consult with specific employees for communication.
    Company looks stable, but can't be, since they layoff employees

    Advice to Management

    Align priorities between cross-functions. Assign a short list of objectives to your staff. Promote existing employees with a history of documented successes. Lead by example. Demonstrate an understanding of company policies and the ability to construct a project timeline. Employees are subjected to outright mean and bully type managers. Regarding Critical Care comments on the other reviews, I would have to agree. Time to address company culture if you haven't done so yet. Hopefully, it's better place to work there now!
