    Pros

    Most people are great. Lots of knowledge and experience. Benefits are just okay, especially after Stryker acquisition. Lost good key leaders after Stryker.

    Cons

    Current leadership is horrendous. Work-life balance is non-existent. Constant pressure on schedule and sales rather than quality. Functional leadership in several areas is very weak.

    Pros

    Good location, good projects, friendly personal, Fair amount of test equipment with decent budgets, Good information monthly company results from senior staff and CEO. Onsite cafeteria with good variety of selections and nice campus

    Cons

    Lacks sense of timeliness of projects and priorities. Gets caught up in minutia and not making decisions, lack of sense of doing what is right and implementing it in a timely manner. 5+ years on same project and still need 1 year. All personnel below management laugh at new schedule after it is released.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with Engineering meetings, actually go to engineering meeting and motivated personnel. Look at self for why high turnover of personnel.
