    I have been working at FUJIFILM SonoSite full-time

    Pros

    SonoSite has great product and the company seems to be profitable.

    Cons

    There are definitely double standards. This is an engineering run company and the rest of the groups are not treated the same. There is also a lot of turnover in staff.

    Pros

    The people at FFSS are great to work with! A real genuine team who collaborate and work well together to drive initiatives. Loyal, hardworking, most middle management and entry level positions within all departments are filled with great people.

    Cons

    I believe there is a gap in communication between upper and middle management within some dept's. Human resources have consistently been unprofessional. Middle management throughout the company agree that HR is not proactive enough. For example; managers must dig for info to help an employee with a specific issue because there is no current handbook, and info is stored in several different places/sites.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that middle mgt is getting the message to ensure company directives are aligned across all departments, and levels.

    Pros

    Workplace environment is fast-paced, yet still I do not find myself overwhelmed. Employees are given the freedom to take personal inititative and be creative. I find myself engaged and excited to go to work. Managment is not overbearing, and they effectively enable positive department perfromance.

    Cons

    You can become iscolated in your work, and communication between department members could be inproved upon. It is not unusual to get an email from someone sitting right next to you.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and faciliatate more communication between staff members. Yet, overall, I enjoy the workplace environment and will continue to fill my role at this company.
