Approves of CEO

Pros

Great pay and benefits, worklife balance is good also
Dan Starks is the best leader in the industry
The company has grown much, and continues to grow
Most of the people who work at the company are easy to work with
Though it is a lean organization,but because of the growth there is room for advancement and growth. You'll never be bored.
I can honestly say I am proud to work for this company. I've never seen them cut corners, and folks here care about the lives of the patients receiving the devices.

Cons

Some divisions are better to work for than others. Avoid the AF Division (unless you are a new leader and looking to change the culture - in which case ...).
Same goes for leadership - most of the company leaders are simply amazing. But being the wrong department is a career killer.
Because of the growth, change is constant. You never know when your group may reorganize.
It is still very much a "good 'ol boys club"

Advice to Management

It is much, much easier to promote from within than to have to find and recruit a new person. If you have an employee who continues to get additional responsibility with no raise or title change, you are quite likely to have said employee seeking opportunities outside the organization.
Hire more women in leadership roles.
Take a close look at some of the company leaders. If their organization is experiencing turning over there is a good reason for it.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Average base pay, good commission pay, average car allowance, good benefits, ok opportunities for enhancing knowledge, good product pipeline, good diversity in the different divisions.

    Cons

    Company philosophy is terrible at best, much of hiring is coming from Boston Sci, RSDs incompetent, work force being reduced dramatically, no support from middle or upper management, business practices questionable (you may hear more about this in the near future)

    Advice to Management

    Find different business model to follow! This is a service oriented industry and that requires people in the field. When hiring RSDs look to companies other than Boston Sci for talent.
