    Pros

    Good benefits & pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Worst executive management I've ever dealt with. Wants to push through a new ERP system whether it works or not. More trouble is on the horizon. Substandard accounting practices, general attitude of "not my problem", and worst of all no one is accountable for their jobs. General attitude from upper management is not caring which affects everyone. If upper management doesn't care, why should they? Too bad. The company can do great things.

    Advice to Management

    Hey executives! How about coming out of your secluded offices and actually see what is going on around you?? It's well known you could care less about the pee-ons, but the company would not function without them. PLEASE try to care. Because NO ONE else does around there.

    Pros

    Gambro is a wonderful company but misdirected at times. The company is blessed with a tremendous group of individuals that support its customers above and beyond the norm in the industry..

    Cons

    The company has a short-term focus in an industry that relies on long-term relationships. Gambro is not in the business for the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand the market before making decisions that effect both your customer and your employee. There are lives at stake and it is not all about lining your pockets.

    Pros

    Progressive company which seeks to be #1 in every aspect of business and industry and has the will and determination to see it through.

    Cons

    Privately owned by an investment company which may divest groups or sell outright to unknown concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and see it through.

    Pros

    Standard large company benefits package. Nice location to the west of town. New offices are well designed. If you have a degree and are male you can do well here.

    Cons

    Boys club - without a degree forget about advancement. Company has had major difficulties with FDA compliance. Communication & common goals between USA & Italy & Sweden are non effective.

    Advice to Management

    Experience and a job well done should allow for advancement. Management in each global area needs to do a better job communicating the interdependent goals and needs for both sides of the pond. Product experts should not find out about new components and part numbers when an employee's opens the box and sees the part number is new or the part looks different. Employees need cultural communication classes to understand the differences and enhance communication.

    Pros

    I like my colleagues and they are very competent. Salaries are okey.

    Cons

    No development opportunities, management only thinks about themselves and stick together with equals to uplift themselves and the real talents of the company try their best to get their ideas heard, but sooner or later they give up and leave the company. This is not a place to bloom.

    Advice to Management

    Take a real good look at the current lower level management. Let the employees take a survey so that they dare to speak up.

    Good work culture.
    Good bonus structure

    Cons

    Senior management need to look into department structure.
    Whole department runs by one manager on his/her own rules

    Advice to Management

    Need get anonymous survey about department managers conduct with employee to get idea of real situation

    Pros

    Medical devices is a real interesting field and are continuously evolving.
    Many different fields: dialysis devices, medical solutions, water purification, etc.
    Many sites worldwide.
    Employees are really competent and loyal to the company.

    Cons

    Because of the medical nature of the product/devices the changes/development are slow moving because of all the verification/validation that needs to be done to keep patients safe. There are no second chances in dialysis.
    Some employees that been at one position for very long needs to be terminated or moved. Leave room for new thoughts and work will.

    Advice to Management

    Leading by fear is an obsolete method in 2013.
    More benefits would be nice.
