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

      Pros

      Benefits are decent Free Light Rail/RTD pass Payouts/Bonus

      Cons

      No pay raises No sick time PTO takes too long to accumulate People that have been there for ages act like high school bullies There's always drama It appears that only some people are promoted because of who they know or because of their ethnicity. Not all trainers are illiterate, but it truly makes me wonder why a couple of them are even trainers. We recently had some training, and it was painful to watch one...

      Advice to Management

      Hold people accountable for their actions. It's time to review those in leadership and training roles.

      I worked at Terumo BCT full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      It is rewarding to contribute to devices that save lives. The company knows what a powerful idea this is and reinforces it at every quarterly meeting. It helps temper the negatives for a while. There are some phenomenal people working at Terumo. I have made some friendships that will last a lifetime. Some perks like the on-site gym and Eco pass are nice.

      Cons

      It is a toxic work environment for women. I was paid less than men with the same background and work experience, despite working just as hard. I was touched inappropriately. When this was reported, I was asked if I misunderstood what happened and that I should assume the "best of intentions." I heard many explicit comments about my own body and other female coworker's bodies. Before applying, do yourself a favor and google...

      "Highly Centralized Company"

      I have been working at Terumo BCT full-time

      Pros

      Products are great. Dedicated resources on innovated medical devices.

      Cons

      A very centralized company, from decision making and project management to expertise management. Too many layers to make decisions. A localized mind-set very popular in the company. Global-orientation is just a beautiful word, but pretty much means nothing in the company.

      Advice to Management

      Senior executives should start to be open-minded by trusting the lower-level management team and nurture a mutual-trust environment within the company. Otherwise a company that only relies on a few brains can never go too far. Starting from senior management, everyone should know the company should be run by managers not experts. Stop fighting for the position of best expert.

      We think our products are great too! Much has changed since the company began. While we are grateful to be growing and to have new opportunities to consider, we recognize that this can also present challenges—some of which you mention.

      Pros

      Great coworkers and low level employees. Pay is OK as well.

      Cons

      Verify difficult to move to other positions/departments. Lack of understanding of the customers and unable to deliver the product they are requesting.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your team a bit more and stand up for them. If your direct supervisor/manager doesn't listen feel free to skip levels to speak to someone who can see the value of what you are saying.

      I worked at Terumo BCT full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Work one day from home a week. Good facilities except for cubicles. Two breakfast/lunch facilities on-site (although food is not that healthy or available for those with sensitivities). Gym on site. Light rail station. You can be half invested, disgruntled, and never worry about losing your job. The potential for large multinational projects.

      Cons

      Why are people writing so many bad reviews? It looks on the surface like an awesome company. It feels great when you apply here. They sell it well. Then you dive in and work really hard on a project. Soon you start to feel weird about your place within the company. Management very rarely ever takes your advice, even though you were hired BECAUSE of your industry experience. The company is risk-adverse. Innovation...

      Advice to Management

      Learn to lead. Stop managing. You have sanitized your workplace to the point of making it bland. Your balanced scorecard initiatives are not making you an industry leader or market success. You think that if you are successful then your employees will feel or buy into your success. Learn to make your employees be and feel successful. Get rid of the nearly all of the entire IT upper management. They are so bad at...
