Approves of CEO

Pros

You feel good that you're working for a company that is saving lives. President holds quarterly meetings for all employees to attend, he reviews company financial information, has a story that the company saved a life, and answers easy and hard questions. Benefits are above average to other companies with 1,000 to 5,000 employees. Departments willing to share info between business lines.

Cons

Some departments aren't willing to train employees for jobs. They want someone that can do the job now due to preparing for being a publicly traded company or bought by another company. In addition, convoluted processes are being put into place.

Advice to Management

Managers, directors, and vice presidents should resolve issues with problem employees instead of passing them on to other managers, directors, and vice presidents.

    "Nice place for a good engineering job"

    Current Employee - Engineer in Lakewood, CO
    Current Employee - Engineer in Lakewood, CO
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Established company. If you have a background in blood banking, you'll have an edge. Great place to coast your way to retirement. Some challenging technical work. A couple of great managers at middle-management level. A lot of the engineers have a wonderful attitude and a great work ethic. Some of the engineers have worked their way into middle management and those folks know what they are talking about.

    Cons

    A lot of engineers, especially the younger ones feel that it is a dead end job. There is very little scope for growth. Some middle managers were hired with little competence over the areas they oversee. There is a lot of politics. You better know where your loyalties lie and be prepared to play the game. There are challenging projects, but your skills are not transferable. So after putting in 5 years you'll be stuck with very specialized knowledge. If you can't move up, you'll have a lot of trouble moving out. Benefits are at the low end of the spectrum, salaries are generally about 10% less that DOE. Negotiate a higher rate when you get hired and be prepared to stay at that level for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    The younger engineers can take on much more aggressive deadlines for faster time to market etc. But you'll have to put in a better rewards structure and publicize it and see to it that hard work gets rewarded appropriately. Some times it doesn't get to your ears who the people are that work really hard and maybe there is something you can do about it.
