    I have been working at Remington Medical, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Remington Medical is a great growing company. As a private medical device company it faces challenges with budgetary concerns that large medical device companies simply do not face. However, I have never been told no with purchasing necessary equipment or items to make the workplace a more efficient.

    You get the opportunity to work in many different areas and can form the job into what you want. No job at Remington is single facetted.

    Cons

    Health insurance could be better. But in today's day and age that seems to be a fluid idea and something beyond a single company's control. Growth is always an issue. They are now located in two buildings (a half mile apart) and that causes some difficulty but nothing earth shattering.

    Pros

    Exciting to work for a growing company that truly cares about our customers, as well as, the employees.

    Cons

    Phenomenal growth brings many changes. Personally, I like growth, change, and new opportunities. Others might view change as a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Friendly people to work with. Good Vision and Dental coverage. Good learning place for someone to get acquainted with Medical Devices.

    Cons

    They don't pay very well, and their Health Ins. coverage leaves something to be desired. You will find some conflicts in some depts.

    Pros

    Fellow coworkers who work with you on a daily basis in the production trenches are great. They know how to do their jobs and do it very well. They are always helpful and willing to lend a hand or help show you how to do things if you need help. A lot of real team work is performed by these people.

    Lower level managers are great as well, QA managers, project managers, manufacturing managers are all very helpful and understanding. These are the people that really get the jobs done from the management standpoint. All of them work well together and really strive to help workers get what they need to do the job. These people are always approachable and friendly and help in any way they can. They can often be found on the production floor joining in to get something done and shipped out to a customer when it's crunch time.

    Cons

    Upper level management is mostly hard to deal with and rarely listen to what employees have to say. Ideas, opinions and concerns usually go unresponded to. The company is owned by two people and one of them is the CEO. The CEO is somewhat abusive at times and mainly concerned about appearance and what makes him money. He rarely cares about what employee concerns are and puts on a persona of caring that is rarely, if ever, genuine. Needless to say, employee turn over is extremely high. Employees work under constant high pressure, especially the lower management team.

    The QA department mostly runs the company operations and does so with immunity. Most product development delays and delivery dates are missed due to the overzealous Quality Engineers who are given too much authority. The HR department is mostly incompetent and rarely has immediate answers to employee questions.

    There is very little motivation for employees and no career paths to speak of. Nearly all employees will stay in the position they are are hired at. Promotions are rarely ever given. Employee reviews are almost never given on time and raises are rare. All these things contribute to the low employee moral. Technology is antiquated and new machinery is rarely procured.

    Advice to Management

    People are what make any company run. Invest in the employees, mentally and emotionally, and moral and loyalty will increase. Executive level management sets the tone for the company and abusive behavior should never be tolerated, especially from an owner. People will work hard if they feel their hard work will be appreciated and rewarded. Allowing employees to keep their jobs is not in itself a reward or motivation. Individual rewards in a public way makes employees feel special. Employees on paper maybe numbers, but in real life they are individuals. Meet employees needs and they will help you reach and exceed your corporate goals.


  7. "If you are out of work and need a job, just don't count on it being long term"

    Pros

    The employees are great and so is some of middle management. There are many tasks to be done and all salary employees wear many hats to get the job done, so no pigeon holeing into one job day after day. The company is in good financial standing and my paychecks never bounced.

    Cons

    After the dust settles and your realize what you got yourself into, your realize the company works off no overall budget planning or departmental budgeting. There are two owners that run the company on a daily basis and they don't normally agree on the direction of the company. However, biggest issues are: company wants to outsource all manufacturing, doesn't value employees, and has had some warning letters from the FDA.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good long term employees and give them incentive to stick around, develop a strategic goal and allow engineering to go after it, invest in technology, and build a stronger company. Only looking at how full your pockets are from one month to the next is not budgeting and investing in technology has a better return on investment than investing in cheap labor.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere and supportive team. Everyone pulls their weight and is recognized for hard work.

    Cons

    The change in management has brought lots of change, but I don’t really see that as a con.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend working at Remington Medical to anyone. It has great structure and lots of opportunity for move up in the company.

    Pros

    Great people. Good "get your feet wet and move on" job. Fair pay. You are not micro managed. Perfect for entry level.

    Cons

    Technology is severely outdated which creates conflicts between departments. The lack of technology and/or investment back into the company has also put the company far behind other medical device company's current standards. CEO is a hot head and has a history of being irrational.
