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

Pros

Very smart co-workers to learn from
Company prides itself in being top-notch, interns are treated well and exposed to many learning experiences
University Relations sets up good events for interns
The goal of the company is to create devices that work FOR patients, not as cost driven

Cons

Lack of direction
Spent much time learning about medical devices, not much working with them
Look for an extension if you are only there for 3 months

Advice to Management

Have interns sit in every meeting, include them in emails. As long as it isn't proprietary, it will give the intern a better idea of cross-department interaction.

  1. "Great Place to Work If You Don't Mind Working in a Heavily Regulated Industry"

    Pros

    Edwards is truly patient focused. They are developing not only some extremely innovating products but also work diligently to train surgeons and clinical staff on the new processes and procedures that would be needed to deploy the devices.

    Cons

    Like all med-tech companies, this company is heavily regulated by the FDA and other international agencies. It takes a certain kind of person who can work in an environment that is that rigid in its adherence to a lot of regulations. However, I'd considere this a huge pro if you'e the patient who ends up with one of our heart valves. You'd probably want to know that the company rigorously tests and validates their products.
