    Pros

    The absolute only good thing about this place is the pay isn't that bad.

    Cons

    I don't even know where to start. This place may look nice and seem like a good option at first glance but you will soon find out what a nightmare this place is. I can't say I have much experience in the office area they seem to have a little bit better but as far as being manufacturing associate forget about it. If you don't get sent home without pay due to lack of work or machine problems you have to deal with the most unprofessional management I have ever seen . You're forced to take your own vacation days that you've gained and worked hard for whenever they please and tell you to. No one is promoted based on their skills with simply a popularity contest. They make new rules every day and then change them on you the next and you get written up for it. No one here is very nice nor wants to see or help you succeed. This place is pretty much completely unstable work and will make you want to pull your hair out.

    I worked at MAQUET full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Your pay check and benefits.
    Some co-workers are great, but for the most part its a shark pit.
    Vending machine is subsidized. (Where else can you buy oatmeal cup for .25c).

    Cons

    Upper Mgt. are clueless Zombies. Brain dead. Never realizing that:
            Products are commodities and are not the gold standard.
           Management is incompetent. From California to Germany. would not know a plan or tactic if it hit them in the mouth. Where on earth did they come from? Oh yeah, that box of Cracker Jacks.
      Product recalls.
      Favoritism. If you want to be an executive, and manage "up" well, you'll get an outrageously high salary. Even if you are incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Sell off the Datascope and Maquet end of your business.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, new facility, pay is good

    Cons

    Under consent decree, over compensating for poor Quality system by adding too many checks and balances. Cannot get anything done due to constantly changing and overwhelming documentation requirements. Cannot get out of their own way and at this point they will come to a screeching halt if they continue down this path. QE's translate SP's per their personal preference and project QE's are shuffled constantly which eliminates continuity. Upper management constantly changing, no consistency...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what's going on at the street level, stop worrying about creating catchy slogans.
