    Pros

    One of the best companies that I have worked for in a long time. I've only been working for the company for just over a year and I am very impressed how senior management cares about the employees. They keep the employees interested by promoting career growth, training, education and constant communication. We have company wide meetings every month and they tell us how our products are being developed and promoted, they keep us informed about revenues and new business development ventures. Our advanced imaging products are awesome, some of the best in the industry in the world. Our CEO promotes team work and transparency, he has an open door policy. Ah lastly, we have some of the best views of the bay, on a clear day you can see SFO, S.F. and some cities in the East Bay.

    Cons

    Our snacks bar is awesome, we get some of the best treats, and they feed us with great catering menus on special occasions, I would not mind more social engagements like a happy hour, picnics once in a while. OK seriously now, I don't see any critical cons this far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep those surveys going, they are a great tool to voice our ideas.

    Pros

    Enthusiastic and engaged leadership that encourages innovative thinking at every level, from processes to employee and product development. Terrific culture of committed, personable employees who demonstrate professionalism consistently. It's a highly energetic and positive environment driven by departmental stretch goals and line of sight of overall company goals. Personally I feel fortunate to be working at TeraRecon at a perfect time when the intersection of advanced technology and the healthcare industry is changing so rapidly.

    Cons

    My previous experiences have been at larger companies with more staff and resources, so the only downside for me has been adjusting to some of those differences, such as wearing more hats at times to spread workload.

    Advice to Management

    Continue transparent communication in all directions when possible.

    Pros

    This company has great innovative software. Development continues to introduce cutting-edge features.
    Friendly employees make coming to the office an enjoyable experience. Since the product is a medical device, the customer expectations for turn-around are usually high, but with high expectations comes high praise.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons.

    Pros

    I started to work at Terarecon in the last few months and have already learned a lot. It seems to me as if I started working 2 years or more. Nice Kollegues and great know how in the IT and Medical imaging buisiness

    Cons

    None so far. Due to team change in Europe we may need to increase the head count asap. Otherwise I know that upper management is taking care of that.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great mentors, family culture, challenging work while the Company is guided by a truly inspiring CEO.

    Cons

    The company grew too fast in a small period of time. Moving from a decentralized to a more centralized culture can lead to confusion when trying to accomplish daily tasks. Although , we all know changes are needed in a fast technological environment to keep on the top and we will get there!

    Advice to Management

    Great management! It takes a lot of dedication and hard work to keep performing at a high level. Keep it up!

    Pros

    When you work at TeraRecon, you feel respected, your opinion counts, and you are asked "Is there anything else we can do to help to promote and keep the talent and innovation within the company".
    There are surveys and company update meetings held on the regular basis. During those meetings, we find out about new products and status of the company , the best employees are recognized, and the stories about their dedication to everyday hard work and accomplishments are told. So, we know our "Unsung Heroes".
    There is food and beverages for employees in the company's refrigerators and cupboards, and special events and holiday lunches are served.
    TeraRecon offers good benefits and promotes hard working and talented employees.
    So, naturally, you feel taken care of and, therefore, like "at home".

    Cons

    Having offices and employees spread all over the World, sometimes requires patience because of the time differences :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    They don't have money.
    If there is a negative rating, I would give a negative 5 rating.
