    "Assembler"

    Former Employee - Assembler in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Vascular Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people were really nice on my team

    Cons

    This has got to be the worst employment experience of my working career. There is so much favoritism that no one can move forward in their career without being a favorite of upper management. Favoritism is absolutely out of control and there are unethical things going on there. One could not really state that there is a HR department because when a problem is taken to HR everyone knows about it and the personnel that work in this department are not fully educated in the roles that they are currently in.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and clean house in upper management to gain a good working relationship with the people who count which are the people that actually make the money for the company.

    Pros

    Food Trucks/company events are cool if you're not in the shipping department.
    Lunch breaks

    Cons

    Shipping is the lowest of the lows
    No trainer position so hopefully someone trains you out of the kindness of their heart
    Terrible communication between coworkers as well as with management
    Giving suggestions is useless

    Advice to Management

    Maybe don't have a meeting to acknowledge that we're "grossly underpaid" and give hope for a large raise that will only happen if you do all your work which we have to learn on our own
    Get a trainer position
    Become personable and decent people if possible

    I have been working at Vascular Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, good health insurance

    Cons

    Low performance raises, no appreciation for home employees, promotions primarily external, underpaid, no incentive to work harder, understaffed, favoritism, nepotism, unqualified employees paid higher rate than employees with a track record of success, promotions not based on merit, no upward movement for production assemblers, upper management is clueless, violates regulations set by the company, most trainers are lazy and unfit, no recognition for hard work

    Advice to Management

    Promote your employees that have a track record of value and success and pay them a living wage or stop complaining about turnover and having lazy and incompetent replacements. If you treat your employees with respect and show them value, they will work harder for you. Provide incentive so your hardest workers don't work 3 jobs to pay their rent.

    Pros

    There are no pros, I just tolerated all the BS for they paychecks.

    Cons

    They don't value their employees. No room for advancement. They only promote their favorites and don't base it on people who are more qualified. HR has fits all the time. Management is poorly runned. They don't value their employees, you get treated like a robot. Management never listens to you, but when a higher up has a
    complaint, they are so quick to move on it. Leads are only out for themselves. They don't give raises on how well you work, they base your raise on the "teamwork". There is no teamwork, there're are only factions. We have no voice, they only want us to go on what they want. STAY AWAY from this place. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your rear end and actually treat your employees how you would want to be treated. Value your employees. Great employees don't leave the company, they leave the poorly runned managers!

    Pros

    Innovative products that you can truly stand behind. Multiple product launches every year so you always have something to sell.

    Cons

    Surprisingly I have no complaints. Mangers are great and very helpful. Company knows how to succeed and gives you all the resources needed to make you succeed as well.

    Advice to Management

    10+ years of double digit growth. No Advice needs to be given. Keep up the great work!
