    I worked at MAQUET full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very Thrifty with finances Centralized leadership from Germany, All German Leadership. Buy up many small companies and integrate them into the whole. Good Lawyers

    Cons

    Consent decree Quality Problems, They do not understand what Quality is. They do not understand that the patient is the only thin that matters. WW Regulatory agencies are aware of the issues

    Advice to Management

    You probably need to change the entire culture including all management. Managing by a balance sheet always ends up in a bad outcome. If you delight customers and patients the balance sheet takes care of itself.

    I have been working at MAQUET full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent Pay. Some very good products.

    Cons

    Upper Management out of touch with what is really going on. Middle management to cowed and scared to say anything. the regular worker in the trenches have giving up trying to change anything. This is a company that does not like to hear its shortfalls. That is why we are under a consent decree. and getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your retention rate with employees, over the past five years. New one leave, quickly.

    I worked at MAQUET full-time for more than 3 years

    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...

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

    I worked at MAQUET

    Pros

    Some great people working with world class products at the operational/sales level.

    Cons

    Consent Decree with the FDA has resulted in 2 years of continual turmoil and senior management turnover in the business units (including at global headquarters in Germany).

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and figure out who you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. You know, the "vision" thing.
