    I worked at LifeWatch full-time

    Pros

    Insurance is available. Good PTO policy.

    Cons

    The company has gone through many major, unpredictable changes for the past 9 years or so; changing CEO's, eliminating departments, constant change of managers and supervisors, rules, and regulations. Your job is never secure and you can get let go at any time. If you get let go, they let you know at the end of the day/shift; your personal items are retrieved for you. Management gets away with bullying; uses coworkers as spies; convince coworkers to be enemies; promotions denied due to animosity yet work you to the bone. There is frequent Mandatory overtime. Definitely, not a job I would recommend.

    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.

    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.

    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.
