Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Top management is making lots of money

Cons

The CEO and others in upper management are philanderers. They cash out millions in stock while supporting cronyism. Employees' positions are constantly at risk as Edwards trims their payroll each year despite record profits. Company discriminates against older employees.

Advice to Management

Resign and allow others to reform the cronyism and a culture of arrogance at the top.

    Cons

    Product is not a standard of care - yet
    Not much support from upper management
    Marketing could be MUCH better
    Have lowered pay structure two years in a row while drastically increasing quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Devote more resources to educating clinicians, especially doctors, about why they should be utilizing less invasive hemodynamic technologies. Work to get them reimbursable. Show more appreciation for field sales reps.
