    I worked at LifeWatch (Less than a year)

    Pros

    you will get 30 min lunch break and two 15 min break

    Cons

    Management allow employees to disrespect each other in the work environment, lack of diversity, lack of opportunities to move up in the work environment, no accountability from management of lack luster performance, Do not pay employees on time, if you are a temp worker you most likely will not get hired.

    Pros

    Likeable people. Good pay. New management is trying to change the very siloed culture. Efforts are being made to improve the company to be more attractive to existing employees and to new people.

    Cons

    The company is still challenged by a lot of disorganization. It has difficulty recognizing and advancing its best employees and supporting those that are good contributors. The office itself has not been upgraded for many years and is suffering from looking a bit tired.

    Advice to Management

    Move faster on the investments and improvements for employees including a more formal evaluation and advancement process, renovated office environment, and recognize that you have talented employees that are in demand in other companies.

    I worked at LifeWatch full-time

    Pros

    Work is performance-based which if you are a hard worker, that can be good. Management is generally helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Performance-based work contributes to lower quality work; this area needed improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Put Quality first

    I have been working at LifeWatch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a small company that allows you to learn the many functions of a large organization if you're apart of the cross functional teams.

    Cons

    The parent company is located in Switerland and the executive leadership is clueless to the market changes occuring in the US healthcare market. The company is lacking a strategic direction and a cohesive leadership team that builds confidence in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a consulting company that will help the executive team learn strategy development and team alignment before speaking with the employees.

    I worked at LifeWatch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Liked the people I worked with

    Cons

    Churn and burn company, that goes through reps constantly. NO JOB STABILITY!

    Advice to Management

    Customers refuse to do business with companies who burn through reps. No chance in establishing long term relationships with accounts because of this.

    Pros

    Good technology with a customer service advantage over the competition. Managers support their reps and do their best to give them the tools they need. 401k match plus expenses. Upper management is doing a better job listening to the sales force and giving them tools to win.

    Cons

    Over promises new technology to reps and customers. Goals can be unrealistic. Lots of turnover. Too much turnover in top management.

    Advice to Management

    Get stability to encourage reps stay with the company. Provide new technology when promised. Don't over promise and under deliver.

    Pros

    Leadership invests in top talent and employee engagement. Great employee benefits - benefits start the first of the month following your start date :)

    Cons

    Not a work from home culture yet

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding top employees

    Pros

    The people who work with LifeWatch are friendly and courteous. There is some flexibility within shceduling when needed.

    Cons

    The management teams seem to not have any particular direction they are headed in and cause uncertainty internally in the company. There is a major lack of proper communication and future plans of which direction the company is headed.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly hiring new people to supposedly fix a much deeper problem is not the answer and only makes matters worse for employees. Better transparency between management and staff and having a plan for the companies future will remove uncertainty.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, helpful managers. No stress or pressure. Easy going. Very relaxed office ambience.

    Cons

    Very cheap pay. Recently they did a market analysis on the average income for each and every position in the company. They raised wages for anyone below that average. Only problem is the skills required to do these jobs are not much, so the pay is not great.
