    Pros

    Used to be a lot of Pro's, but not any more.

    Cons

    Cuts more employees every year. Few left doing a lot of work for less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to Boston Sci as soon as possible.

    I worked at Urologix (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great People in the home office, who work very hard to get things done.

    Cons

    Upper management and Executive branch tried to create something that they were not capable of doing, and spent A LOT of money on salaries, and cars and travel. Instead money should have been put into R&D to stay competitive with the med device market.

    Pros

    If I had to say one positive thing, it would be that Urologix is a good place to gain industry experience in medical device manufacturing.

    Cons

    Urologix is not a nice place to work. They do not support family / work balance and clearly do not value their employees.

    Advice to Management

    They do not care to change so it's pointless.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for medical device experience. Good work/life balance when not traveling.

    Cons

    Unstable and budget was under-funded.

    Advice to Management

    Secure investors and expand.

    I worked at Urologix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great, life changing technology, developed by passionate people who want to make a difference and understand their market

    Cons

    Executive leadership is highly overcompensated, without a lot of accountability. They speak in " catch phrases" but are not effective in leadership

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the board of directors: clear out the upper management and the finance department. There are uneducated people in finance making ill informed decisions. Also consider contracting out the HR functions. Highly inept people in that area as well, leaving you open for lawsuits.

    Pros

    Staff both on site and Sales team great to work with. Knowledgeable and friendly. Employee sponsored potlucks.

    Cons

    Management, disinterest in employees, upper management vs everyday employee atmosphere, Pay doesn't compare with local average rate.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in some new key roles. Train upper management on the importance of employee retention efforts.

    Pros

    Great product. Loyal users. Need a new owner

    Cons

    Broke. Reserves are running very low.

    Advice to Management

    They just went through a complete layoff of 75% of sales staff to save money. This should have happened 3 years ago to save reserve cash.
