    Pros

    The organization has seen tremendous growth over the years and has a broad portfolio of products that have a positive impact on patient lives.

    Cons

    Too much leadership change at multiple levels in the organization including CEO, CFO, VP HR, Presidents of various businesses...too many to count.

    Advice to Management

    Settle on a strategy and let it ride for a while.

    Pros

    Opportunity abounds. If you're willing to adapt, you will be able to thrive in this truly multinational medical device company. With over 60 sales & service units world wide, Getinge is prepared to interface with customers globally.

    Cons

    Change is constant. If you're focused on 1 area of business, it may be uncomfortable for you to adjust to constant reorganization and change. Be positive, be willing and be prepared to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate the big picture. There are great people already in the organization who are willing to step-up and support new initiatives.

    Pros

    great people, close "family" environment for employees, technology forward company

    Cons

    Regular organizational changes that leave employees with feelings of instability, long hours, positions are not back filled when employees leave dumping workload on already taxed staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop reinventing the wheel and look at past organizational changes that didn't work. This is driving good, talented employees to leave because we don't learn from past failures.

    Pros

    * Parking on site.
    * Abundance of marketing material available.
    * Tactful communication published on social media.
    * Salaries match industry.

    Cons

    * Poor engagement and lack of effective leadership.
    * Career development solely based on being 'liked' verses being 'results driven'.
    * Toxic culture making it very difficult for career longevity.
    * Lack of WHS and Quality presence.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit your leadership team! Recruit 'experienced professionals' that are up to the challenge of steering a profitable business, promote solid WHS, embrace a professional positive workplace as opposed to what you currently have. If the change in leadership happens the business in 3-5yrs might actually be profitable and resourced with the right people.

    Pros

    Great industry to work for. Getinge overall is a great organization. The Canadian division is declining due to poor senior management

    Cons

    Senior management in Canada is terrible. The current president has no respect of employees and customers. The morale is extremely low and sales have been declining since her arrival.

    Advice to Management

    In order to restore morale and sales in Canada, major changes will need to occur at the senior level. It is imperative that actions are taken to minimize the damages done so far
