    Invests in Training and Med Device Manufacturing knowledge
    CEO with proven track record of achieving company objectives
    Many organization goals accomplished over the last few years

    I worked at Terumo Cardiovascular Systems full-time

    Pros

    This is a good company to learn about GDP, Quality Systems, FDA & Regulations as everything you do you have to train and be qualified to perform.

    Cons

    As with the pros there is ridiculous amount of red tape to getting work done which can be frustrating and almost stifling in terms of progress. Every i needs to be dotted and t's crossed but since you are dealing with FDA you have to follow the process.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more employee focused and support better work life balance. A lot of the processes are broken e.g. change control is extremely cumbersome with an absurd amount of approvers. Better process and focus on employees will help improve the irreparable damage resulting from years of concent decree slog!

    I worked at Terumo Cardiovascular Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.


  10. "intern"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Terumo Cardiovascular Systems full-time

    Pros

    - Laid-back environment
    - No micromanagement, a lot of freedom to learn
    - This will depend on team, but people are willing to help you and answer questions
    - Provide housing and relocation reimbursement
    - Good place to ease yourself into learning software development life cycle
    - Co-op program recruits tons

    Cons

    - Housing is a bit of a commute (mine was ~ 30-40 min one way)
    - Management is very lax so you need to make initiative to get work if you haven't
    - Some technology is archaic, but they are transitioning to mobile platforms

    Advice to Management

    - Be more proactive in getting co-op/intern involved in projects.
