    Pros

    small operation that is highly profitable and allows employees that are willing to work very long and tiring shifts to make a very decent living.

    small operation that will not allow for advancement. requires very long hours to make a decent living. employees are often over worked.

    Advice to Management

    none at all to report since i was the only upper management. good luck to all of those involved in the operation.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at KCI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Established company and leader in the field.

    Cons

    product patents are no longer exclusive, so competition has entered the market and KCI's market share is eroding. They are no longer in a growth mode and are now in a situation where they are struggling to maintain current market share.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with the staff and communicate the challenges faced by the company.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at KCI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best technology available on the market. A lot of well seasoned professionals who truly care about patients. The quality of the product line and the strong clinical support team allowed the customers (clinicians deploying VAC therapy to customers) to save limbs and lives.

    Cons

    From my perspective the company leadership has lost sight of the value of direct customer contact and clinical field support.

    Advice to Management

    Redeploy your Clinical account managers and expand that team. I was a Sales team member not a clinician, however, I could not have had the success that I had without the customer support and training that I was able to provide thanks to my CAM Support

    Pros

    Compensation is average to above average, there are plenty of changes to take on projects. Industry is still viable and company is the industry leader.

    Cons

    No defined career progression planning. Department collaboration is lacking which causes slow change and no business alignment. Company is good at attracting talent but lacks the execution to retain talent due to the previously state lack of career progression planning.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate a philosophy that will drive cross departmental collaboration. More transparency to the management philosophy to the employees. More access to the executive leadership team. Define a direction and stick with it.
