    I have been working at Ethicon Endo-Surgery full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people. Outstanding benefits

    Cons

    Lie about compensation. Significantly below market average compensation. Awful org structure. No quality quality control or accountability. Way too many others to note.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management/executives are the propblems. The foundation is so flawed it needs to be scrapped and completely re structured.

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing. They are virtually untouchable in most, if not all, areas.

    Cons

    Mid level management is very difficult to work with. There seems to be a rush to put inexperienced, young professionals in roles that they simply are not prepared for at this time. The job is not challenging. There seems to be a glass ceiling in most positions.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging should be discouraged on all levels. Practice the Credo, it would lead to a much higher level of employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Great company! Great culture! Lots of room to maneuver to find your career path. Highly recommended as a great place to do design work and to grow as an engineer

    Cons

    Processes are not well refined. To much room for interpretation. It's nice to have the autonomy but this lack of norms drives a lot of inefficiencies!

    Advice to Management

    Standardize approach to common tasks to drive more efficiency in teams and ease of movement from team to team.
