Pros

The products developed and produced are great . These products really do help people to live better lives and most quarterly reviews feature stories of someone that has been helped by the blood products collected on one of our aphaeresis or whole blood devices or by replacing blood components with one of our therapeutic devices.

Cons

Managers, in R&D at least, do not take the time to get to know their people and who is doing the work so they do not recognize individual contributions. Celebration of team achievements while good is often late. Some groups such as QA/test, experience constant turnover of personnel.

Advice to Management

R&D managers should get over their introverted style and meet more of the people doing the work for them. Many new hires don't even meet the project manager of the project they are working on for many months.

    I have been working at Terumo BCT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good products that do what they promise : Unlocking the potential of blood and Saving patients lives
    - Sales knows their products
    - Passionate people
    - Intention is good
    - Culture and values are good
    - You have good people, but they don't stay long
    - Ambiance between colleagues
    - Fair benefits

    Cons

    - No LT strategy and vision,
    - Good people leaving, mediocre people stay too long --> no fresh blood for innovative ideas,
    - Slow or no decision taking
    - Very slow and prudent product development
    - No LT product strategy, only short term sales objectives.
    - Very US centric
    - Led by Operations & Quality, not by Sales & Marketing
    - You have leaders that used to be good in the smaller BCT but are now overclassed, too operational and no strategic views, and sadly, they stay trying to lead the people and Cy, but they miss essentials skills and vision
    - Not enough new external people are being brought in, on all levels, what makes that we fail to learn from other companies and don't use that chance to improve or at least, question ourselves.

    Advice to Management

    Develop potentials and be open for trial

    When you introduce good tools, also think of keeping them developing.
    Example SAP, SalesForceDotCom,.... after introduction, there is no budget foreseen to develop those tools to become really helpfull and embraced by the users.
