    I worked at Kinetic Concepts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Has one good technology for wound healing.
    Had potential with tissue regeneration technologies from LifeCell acquisition.

    Cons

    Political gestapo like environment is shocking.
    Business thwarts creative innovation - leads to recreation of the wheel - over and over again.
    Company appears to be dissolving.
    Simply does not live up to its potential as a viable medical device company due to its near sole reliance on VAC technology.
    Some products are released with known issues which defeat their credibility in the medical community.
    Too many corners cut in product development.
    No real common belief or initiative in really diversifying the company at the senior level.

    Advice to Management

    I''m not sure there is much I can say at this point. Internal strife has been the norm. Cons speak for themselves. It appears KCI is selling off its second wing (therapeutic services).

    I have been working at Kinetic Concepts full-time

    Pros

    *Decent benefits
    *People are hard workers
    *Industry leader

    Cons

    *New management since Apax purchased, does not effectively communicate
    *Bonuses / raises were not recognized in 2011
    *Multiple lay offs since Apax purchased
    *Morale is low, employees are leaving & management isn't trying to convince them to stay

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees will make the company successful if they feel valued. Working employees long hours without compensating them is not right, it creates a toxic environment of resentful employees.
