I worked at Edwards Lifesciences full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent senior leadership that has demonstrated a lot of smarts by getting onboard with TAVI way ahead of the curve and greatly strengthening the company as a whole. Generous with stock grants and the stock purchase program to all employees, so that they really feel like owners. A lot of millionaires next door created due to stock accumulation over the last 10 years.

Cons

The surgical valve sales force is like the lumberjack trying to use an axe when the chainsaw (TAVI) is bring used more and more. Previous high market share with the surgical valves is now being eaten away by competitors with hemodynamically superior valves (Trifecta) and a number of disgruntled surgeons/cardiologists that were also-rans for TAVI site selection using competitive products.

Advice to Management

Don't shoot your wounded. Survey the landscape and look at what's going on and do something to retain your good surgical valve reps that have demonstrated excellence when they had an even playing field. Mid-level management needs to do more to protect their good employees rather than just protecting their arse.

    I have been working at Edwards Lifesciences full-time

    Pros

    Nothing great to share on current management. Used to have great management in the past, it is getting worst!

    Cons

    Promotion was not done fairly. Top management DO NOT listen to what people want. Very self centered and only care for their own well being and have personal agenda. High resignation of talented employee since last year.

    Pros

    Edwards has a great culture and fun atmosphere. You will be working on leading edge technology in a fast paced environment. Edwards strives to maintain a strong commitment to quality.

    Cons

    Sometimes work/life balance is more work than life. High pressure environment. Majority of people that work at Edwards are the best of the best, so it can get competitive when trying to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate successes.
