    Pros

    great team, really smart people
    decent pay, free gym, free parking, subsidized healthy cafeteria
    good infrastructure

    Cons

    smaller organization
    processes move slowly- too slowly sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work- but consider a greater bias for ACTION!
    Business decisions don't require so much "analysis!"

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

    Pros

    Pay was good, newer employees were all very friendly.

    Cons

    Lack of structure, minimal training, undefined authority, management rarely followed through on what they said they would do. Most long term employees seemed catty and cliquish. Didn't gain any useful experience.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management is not effective and seems to spend more time socializing than doing actual work.

    Pros

    Pay above average. Clean environment. Good bonus. Average health benefit. Production employees care for each other.

    Cons

    Political game among management. Full of nepotism. Robotic leadership style. Task-oriented behavior than consideration. Use power to lead production team instead of professional approach.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people needs and concerns. CEO and management need to appreciate the production value and contribution. People are their most valuable asset.

    I worked at Terumo BCT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    free parking, nice cafeteria, exciting products/new developments, opportunities to network and move into different roles in the organization.

    Cons

    Men in my department consistently received higher starting salaries, promotions and wage increases than women in the same roles with the same (or more) experience. There was a big focus on cutting building and service costs so critical maintenance items were swept under the rug while the manager actually received a promotion. This potentially compromised the cleanroom environment and will remain a risk for many years to come... all because one woman was trying to advance her career and the company refused to look deeper. Anyone who tried to flag the maintenance issues and regulatory impacts ended up on the wrong end of a pink slip. The degree to which the organization overlooks managerial abuse while touting its corporate culture is disturbing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing bullies into management positions. Take a very close look at the wage gap between men and women in equal roles.

    Pros

    Great people, always reminding us that we are here to serve patients. Respectful to personal time and space, work life balance.

    Cons

    The culture values quality and doing things right over doing it quicker, which any mistake is a costly mistake individually. Process oriented people command a lot of respect here

    Pros

    Good people, salary & benefits

    Cons

    Favoritism & nepotism abound. Mgr was a narcissist with poor communication skills and no good sense of priority. Expectations were unclear and technology was outdated and poorly maintained.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring cheerleaders as managers, try people who actually are capable of managing and seeing people's strengths. Stop paying massive amts of overtime to admins who take hours to do what should take minutes.

    Great people and great life saving products. Has a terrific CEO that is a good communicator, is authentic and trustworthy.

    Stuck in paralysis by analysis and deep FDA fear. Unwilling to stay current with technology keeping them behind the curve and costing the company time and money. Does not accept new ideas or innovative solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't shut down new ideas before seeing if they can help the company progress.
