        Thanks for taking time to share a review. We think our people are pretty great too. Once a few storm recovery and campus construction projects are complete later this year, we hope that parking issues will get better on our Lakewood campus—thanks for your patience.

        I worked at Terumo BCT for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Terumo BCT embraces the technical aspects of their business and with that, Quality. There are no shortcuts in product development and they really are a best in class company.

        Cons

        Things move slow there. It can be difficult to fill an 8 hour day. It can also be a little political in terms of advancement and getting support.

        Advice to Management

        Inspire your teams. Terumo should be privileged as an organization to have its employees, but sometimes the organization acts as though the employees should be privileged to work for the company.

        Pay your best people better, create pathways beyond senior manager, don't overload your performers and let non performers coast

        I have been working at Terumo BCT full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Great people to work with. Most of the direct contributors and low-to-mid level managers are highly engaged and clearly focused on delivering the best products to our customers. Decent benefits that include tuition reimbursement and an on-site fitness center.

        Cons

        Senior management/executives are highly-focused on removing "bureaucracy," but don't take time to understand the process before they decide how to fix it. Project teams spend more time meeting, arguing, and trying to justify why their project is an exception to following the process than it would take them to just follow the process. Too many project managers assigned to different aspects of the same projects,...

        Advice to Management

        Do actual prioritization and then make sure all the departments that need to support projects have the tools and resources they need. Keep doing Value Stream Mapping and other activities to make sure you understand the bureaucracy before you cut it. Make sure the company culture, starting with the behavior of senior leadership, is embodying compliance and safety first, and cost/expedience second.

        Pros

        Friendly environment and encouraging teams. True commitment to patients through our products. Remarkable contributions to LLS (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society).

        Cons

        Consistent project prioritization is often an issue and high dependence on standard operating procedures and group decisions. Cubes are grey, ceilings are low and lights are soul sucking. Not for everyone.

        Advice to Management

        Lots of turnover recently in upper management. Let's see where that goes.

        Pros

        Good benefits and good products.

        Cons

        Management put in place that are not qualified, and got there not on merit but sleeping to the top. If you are a women don’t apply, you won’t get hired they just let 5 women go. HR puts mangers before employees even if there are multiple complaints.

        Advice to Management

        Antoinnette, in this day in age and the “me too movement”, you as a women should be aware of what is going on in this company and working to resolve it.
