Pros

There are many great managers working here.

Many smart, capable, friendly coworkers.

Medical devices - a chance to create something to help someone.

Very respected company, with a lot of growth.

Most parts of the benefits package are great.

Cons

Upper management, at this location, handles anxiety with micromanaging and constant redirection of resources - trying to put out fires.

Little acknowledgement, in practice, of the "Quality, Time, Cost - pick two" concept.

Overburdening procedures (even for a Medical company)

Outdated vacation policy - fewer days than most places.

Advice to Management

Pick a direction and communicate that direction to _everyone_.
Trust that your team can complete if you give them direction and don't change the finish line.
Every project can't be "number one priority."
