    I worked at MAQUET (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good working environment. Hard working employees.

    I believe Management lost a bit of their focus during merge process. And was slow to make tough decisions.

    An mentioned, be quicker to make tough decisions.

    I worked at MAQUET as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great processes, technologies, and products that enhance life. Worked with a great bunch of professionals. Beautiful campus and facility in Wayne, NJ.

    Cons

    Contractor / consultant pay rate ended up being much less than originally promised. Contractor / consultants are not proactively indentified by HR and functional managers for possible permanent positions within the company before their term is about to expire.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your contractors / consultants. They are the one who come off the sidelines in the 4th QTR and OT to deliver that game winning TD for you.

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

    Pros

    The position was well documented - what I was supposed to do. The pay was good and the workplace was nice. The people were nice.

    Cons

    Management when I was there seemed disconnected from processes. It's like the good people had left at some point in the past. It was frustrating to work there because it wasn't clear why some of the work was being done. We had a weird relationship with our overseas parent company. The commute was horrible.

    Pros

    Big company and great product for customers and end users.

    Cons

    Way to big entirely to fast. As a result the expectations are unrealistic and extremely difficult to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people...!!!

    Pros

    Great Products that work well, and do more than expected

    Cons

    Poor planning and implementation to expand and grow. Lots of talk, not much in the way of real support for anything more than 'Just do it"

    Advice to Management

    When you have the smallest market share, and the highest prices - you have to be a bit more creative in growing the business - and not rely on your reputation in other countries to mean much in the US market.
