Pros

Saleries are fair, benefits are good, generous PTO (vacation) program (as long as you don't get sick), nice location close to Google campus.

Cons

Soon to be five CEOs in five years. Market share is half what is was eight years ago. Management is delusional regarding what it would take to make it back to where we were.

Many of the VPs who got us into this mess remain. Needless to say, most employees can't understand why they are still here.

Company is quite understaffed after years of lay-offs (even after expanding a bit during the last year), so everyone is overworked and cooperation suffers.

People stay on because they love Ultrasound and the economy is bad.

Advice to Management

Ger rid of the under-achieving VPs and middle managers.

Admit that additional investment will be needed to execute on current plans and grow faster than competition.

Promote from within. There are still a lot of good people left in the organization.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    benefits are great, pay is decent, learning opportunites are endless and free. Work/ life balance is great.

    Cons

    I see great management in most departments but most managers and supervisors don't even bother to come in to the office. Not that I blame them. No pay for performance. Every one gets the same raise, if any are given at all.

    Advice to Management

    A good Manager can find an employees stong points and capitalize on them, lead them, mentor them and help them be better. That is actually a great manager. I only know of two great Managers in this building. Another piece of advise - more indians less chiefs
