    I worked at Terumo BCT full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    + Pretty decent starting salary. + Pretty decent PTO amounts.

    Cons

    - V e r y s l o w m o v i n g to try to get new ideas implemented. - Puts out "engagement" surveys: 1) don't be fooled into thinking they are anonymous, 2) action is not going to come from the results anyway. - Make sure you have your PC (political correct) vocabulary down pat.

    Advice to Management

    Be real with your employees, oh, sorry, "associates". Too many of the Executive Management Committee members talk out of both sides of their mouths.

    I have been working at Terumo BCT full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I LOVE working here! I knew I wanted to work here the first time I was hired as a contractor for an IT Project back in 2018. Since I've been back and hired on full time, I still love it just as much! Although there is room for improvement, I just see that as opportunity to be the key component to getting that improvement created and implemented so that Terumo BCT can be that much more of a stronger more smoothly operating...

    Cons

    I can only complain about Parking. Building 810 has the least amount of parking available and I feel it's unacceptable to tell them to park over in one of the other parking lots considering how far away they are from Building 810.

    Advice to Management

    Need better communications between company departments concerning upcoming projects, etc that impact the IT Department

    I have been working at Terumo BCT full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable company, fair wages, decent work, meaningful products, and some opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Fast growth has increased the strain of its processes and systems. Executives and upper management are becoming disconnected from the people who do the work because middle management wants to show them that they are doing great which covers problems up. There is an increase in interdepartmental conflict of who owns which part of a process or policy. Typical, growing pains, however if they do not address it soon bureaucracy...

    Advice to Management

    Executives and upper management should do their Gemba walks with the people doing the work everyday (maybe even do some of the work) and listen to what they need to do their jobs well and what hurdles are in their way...then give them what they need and get rid of the hurdles.

    I have been working at Terumo BCT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people I work with day to day are really intelligent and experienced . It's a lot of fun to be surrounded by so many smart people. The company is doing well, pay is good, and the work-life balance is great. It's very mission-oriented. Everyone is focused on making decisions based on patient safety.

    Cons

    Certain departments are uncooperative and dismissive of other departments. Inter-departmental team attitude seems to be ignored by the managers in those departments, which gets in the way of the good work that could be done by all these smart people.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of managerial back-stabbing, name-calling and slander.
