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

    Pros

    Competitive salaries and great comp plans! Annual bonuses for consistent earners.... Who does that anymore? Great people to work with at the main campus.

    Cons

    Training was convoluted but enjoyable - the executive leadership while I was there was a swinging gate - very little room for upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    New executive leadership is solid and will grow the business - continue the anesthesia dealer relationship in Michigan - MindRay can't afford to have them as a competitor....

    Pros

    Big Company with a small company environment. Friendly people, always willing to help if needed.

    Cons

    Bought out by a Chinese company and coordination between countries is very difficult. Quality standards in China are much lower than on the American side. Made working on anything that originated in China very difficult

    Pros

    Good pay, high level of independence, decent benefits. Chinese ownership was willing to listen and was willing to change if ideas were proven to be correct

    Cons

    Mindray is a very lean company so sometimes, people were asked to do multiple jobs. Strategic vision may not line up with market trends, so future viability may not be there for US market.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Employees have worked there for many years and are usually very supportive of each other. Overall atmosphere is pleasant. They provide great health benefits and reasonable time off with pay. Environment is clean and they bring fresh fruit for the employees as an afternoon snack. The cafeteria is nice and reasonably priced. 401K is adequate.

    Cons

    Poor communication between the parent Chinese company and its US Headquarters. Language, cultural and overall poor understanding by the parent company regarding standard business practices in the US. The company is very "top heavy." In the Finance department there were at least 6 managers and only 5 analyst/support people. Foreign auditors (Hong Kong/China) have poor understanding of the English language. US Management is unwilling/unable to communicate with their Chinese counterparts how business is conducted in the US. Lack of turnover in Middle Management has left little room from innovation and creativity. Processes are manually driven and there is very little automation. Company policies and procedures are not properly documented, standardized or analyzed in order to streamline processes. Consequently there is little room for process improvements. Departments are territorial and often unwilling to work with other departments to resolve problems. Some of the managers assigned to oversee specific departments do not have the skills, background or even a slight understanding of what their subordinates are doing. Human Resources poorly managed and employees (despite the open door policy) are not supported. Managers discipline subordinates in front of peers and either via email or verbally in person. Management's lack of understanding of day-to-day employee duties and time it takes to accomplish tasks, makes them ill equipped to make decisions that streamline and automate work. Additionally their lack of understanding of standard business procedures results in poor choices.
    Managers take credit for the work performed by subordinates. There is also a pervasive culture of sexual discrimination by a handful of Managers. Lastly Senior Management show little respect for their subordinates by making

    Advice to Management

    Standardize policies and procedures. Place managers overseeing several departments who have experience/training in the areas that they are overseeing. I would also recommend that the Human Resources Department obtain additional training on Employee Relations. Managers should lead by example. Many times, subordinates stay working well after their Manager has gone home for the day. In my specific department it was not unlikely that my Manager would leave at 5:30 pm everyday, while we, the support staff would often stayed till 8:00 - 9:00 pm, sometimes as late at midnight. There is no additional compensation for non-exempt employees who work 60-80 hours per week, and to add insult to injury, subordinate employees usually have to explain why/how/means/methods of their decisions. Management should have a working and detailed knowledge or their respective departments and use that knowledge to provide adequate staffing and/or MANAGEMENT should come up with solutions for streamlining processes.
