    I have been working at Terumo Cardiovascular Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is an awesome company with an awesome mission. Most of the people are positive and knowledgeable, and they really care about what they are doing. Just coming out of a consent decree and it has been a very stressful time, but I believe we will be better and stronger for it. CEO is a hard working wonderful person who knows his stuff. I fear he doesn't always get the full story from his staff though.

    Cons

    Some of the management need to step up and make some decisions. They tend to leave their projects in disarray due to their indecisiveness. Some of the in-fighting between mid level management Prima Donnas can be quite annoying because it can get in the way of what needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Start acting and stop reacting. Make sure the right people you have involved in setting the pace and goal of a project are the people who understand everything involved. Not just present because of their title. Much waste of time going back to the drawing board because of unqualified advice.

    Pros

    Steady returns. Happy to participate in the market place. Fast follower is the aspiration. Loyalty is an interesting part of the culture here

    Cons

    The pros were cons. Terumo is a place that does not develop their talent. They were focused on the consent decree for years and lost a bunch of talent

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to begin. I don't think Terumo can change as it values tradition deeply...

    Pros

    Nice work environment, dedicated employees, supportive team.

    Cons

    Struggling management, changing priorities and not following at all the Japanese culture of retaining good employees, resulting in high turnover rate, loss of credibility and loss of acquired expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Value more and empower employees, keep full time resources, not consultants and contractors.

    Great benefits, 401k match, and somewhat laid back if you're in the right department.

    Spend more time developing talent whether old or new, they may be able to help change the culture that has developed.

    Pros

    Good place to learn about FDA and consent decrees.

    Cons

    Company is trying brute force method to get through FDA issues. It will be successful, but it will come at a high cost to the company and its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find smart ways to get things done.

    Pros

    Terumo sets an industry standard above any company, I have worked for many companies in my 45 plus years of employment and no company is as professional despite any temporary setbacks, I relocated from the West Coast because I believe in this company and it's strong future. Unlike most companies this large, upper management is never isolated from the workforce, even the CEO Mark Sutter takes the time to greet ever single employee throughout the day and takes a hands on role. In the three tears I have been here I have found everyone is treated with respect and are genuinely friendly. There is truly a work life balance and taking time off is never an issue. This is a one of a kind experience working at Terumo especially knowing there are many that have been employed here for 30 plus years, that says allot for a company like Terumo.

    Cons

    The winter weather, but no one has control over it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep setting the industry standard with all employees.
