I worked at Spacelabs Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Environment allowed for self-directed work and experimentation as long as progress was made and communication was open. People were always friendly and helpful as they are all committed to bettering people through the products produced.

Cons

Company always talking about bringing in new people to help with the overload on current developers. However, Company always seems to be in a hiring freeze and continues to overload current developers.

Advice to Management

Commit more to people than bottom-lines.

    I have been working at Spacelabs Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A software engineering environment that encourages experimentation. Products that make a difference -- we're literally building software that can help keep someone alive. Feels like a small company -- with < 100 people in R&D in Snoqualmie, every one has impact and can change product direction by convincing a few key folks. Management focuses on a manageable work week, so no one is working crazy hours on a regular basis. Snoqualmie Ridge location is beautiful and the reverse commute from the Eastside is painless.

    Cons

    Health benefits are more expensive than other tech companies. While company is hiring new software engineers, there are too many products to be built by too few engineers, so lead times are long. Regulatory environment is tough to get used to and can feel frustrating when it's time to release a product.

    Advice to Management

    Use a portfolio approach to R&D investment: invest in a small number of strategic products and make them amazing. Build a plan that obsoletes the old product lines faster rather than spending time and energy putting bandaids on them.

    Stop micromanaging and let the people you hired do the job you hired them for.
