    The team was great! I enjoyed working with the documentation team. The company offers great benefits for their employees from health to free food.

    No fitness facility to work out at on break.

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Vascular Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No micro management...set schedule (weekdays no weekends - ever.

    Cons

    Believe what you read here. Working for them is risky and can be abusive.

    Advice to Management

    If a problem can be fixed that is fixable, and most are, I would hope you would agree that it is preferable to fix it, even if it goes against established practices. It is not particularly helpful to maintain practices for the sake of having preserved a pattern of thought - that is, your beliefs about your practices or experience - which leads to revolving door employment/unemployment…which in turn hinders your ability to find and keep good people because it’s reported on Glass Door reviews.

    Pros

    Very dynamic company always innovating new tools / devices.

    Cons

    Non-Compete clause in employment agreement is very strickly enforced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.


  4. "A lot of unfairness!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good benefits offered with stock, medical, dental and life insurance.

    Cons

    Everyone who moves up is related to someone, tons of favoritism, no seniority, no chance to grow with company, no dignity for employees, always telling you what you do wrong and not what you do right, negative environment

    Advice to Management

    Retain your long term employees as they are the ones who have been faithful. Provide some positive feedback and praise once in awhile. Please someone in upper management see how people are moving up because they are related. Very unfair!

    Pros

    This used to be a great place to work, now i cant even mention a single positive.

    Cons

    First off the Management in the shipping department goes out of their way to do as little as possible, they even have called the employees to their face cheap, i my self-witnessed such.
    More to add to it they pass down their duties onto those below them to lessen their own load.
    The veteran employees are forced to train the new people as management simply refuses to handle the responsibility.
    Third they hide things prior to Audits this company is broken at the highest levels and they refuse to fix it.
    HR has been contacted on quite few occasions & has allowed management to retaliate an confront the employees reporting them.
    Simple blatant disregard for actual morals.
    They have verbally abused employees at their leisure or when they feel the need to vent, i myself have been such a victim an witnessed it, the management also covers one another so it goes unseen.
    The employees nightly watch their management leave them unattended even though company policy states otherwise, that a supervisor should be present, though nightly this is not the case they consistently leave before the job is done.
    They hired a man whom had ZERO experience in this company into management, that man has openly displayed racist like intention an issued physical threats to employees.
    The yearly promises always the same and never lived up as management gets everything.
    They lack the ability to take credit for their own failures again & again. i have witnessed this, it will always continue because HR is for company not employees.

    I only want justice for those who will remain after I leave. The shipping department is not the only broken department in this company, the money stays at the top an people who honestly work hard but do not kiss backsides never will see the light of day.
    I can only hope one day perhaps it will all come back, but Karma has never seen fit to write the wrongs going on daily in this company and the poor folks who just want to be able to work a job where they are not viewed as a slave or less than human though that will never seem to happen.
    BIGGEST CON IS THE FACT THEY WILL SEEK TO FIRE ME BEFORE THEY WOULD EVEN CONSIDER FIXING THE MAJOR WRONGS GOING ON DAILY!

    Advice to Management

    Clean house on Management, an actually support employees who fit the roles they are to be applied.
    I have watched management or supervisors to scared to openly speak to the employees whom slack off or do not work simply because they fear retaliation.
    Actually give loyal employees whom do their job the respect they deserve!

    Pros

    Cool company outings if you're in the right department.
    Lots of free soda

    Cons

    Leave workers to fend for themselves without proper training and make it hard to get a question answered.
    No real leadership.
    Employees can be self serving and inconsiderate

    Advice to Management

    Be more personable and communicative.
    Train your employees and maybe appreciate their extra work more

    "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

    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.
