Pros

Good benefits, including tuition assistance and a great 401(k) plan with a 7% discretionary contribution. The company is growing fast by acquiring mid-sized and small companies. Great product portfolio.

Cons

There is no diversity at the workplace. Recent hires in leadership roles lack of the fundamental people skills and education.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    There are a lot of like minded people at this company. A common focus to get the job done. All with a very strong work ethic.

    Cons

    I loved it. A great place to work. However, they had a tendency to put totally inexperienced people in jobs that NEED experienced personnel. Many jobs were feeder positions for higher roles, so just as someone was getting really good (and becoming helpful to you), they were moved to a different role. This causes a lot of frustration for the different teams.

    Advice to Management

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Keep experienced people in their current role. This could save you a LOT of money on training.

    Pros

    N/A. Other than benefits that are OK.

    Cons

    Generally underpaid in a high cost of living environment with a high level of responsibilities. Compensation does not compare to similar jobs in industry. Company is not as concerned with Quality and Ethics as they pretend to be. As long as an employee can "talk the talk" but can't "walk the walk" they will do well. Inconsistency with regard to job titles and responsibilites.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new managers, team leaders, supervisors, clinical study managers and engineers etc. from outside the company that have management, supervisory, technical or job title experience. To many promotions from within result in a lack of qualified management or other technical employees with individuals who have no idea what is going on within industry, have no exposure to how other companies work, don't have the experience and are too involved in internal politics. Promotions are based on one persons decision instead of demonstrated knowledge, skills and experience. Employees are generally not required to develop skills or advance education and are not required to prove how they meet the requirements for a new role. No interview or qualification process exists for promotions. Available training is minimal.
    Management needs to treat promotable employees as if they were new employees and challenge their experience and skills in an interview with their new peers. A potential new manager should be interviewed by other managers or higher positions. A potential new Chief or Senior Engineer should be interviewed by other Chief or Senior Engineers. A Team leader or Supervisor needs to be interviewed by other Team Leaders or Supervisors. A qualification program needs to be designed for all levels within the company. The individuals that generally make these promotion decisions are not always familiar with the daily responsibilities or technical skills required for the promotable position they are signing off on.
