    I have been working at Verathon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CEO and Sr. Staff are new (about a year into their time) and are clearly doing all of the right things. Employees are treated like they matter, the new product roadmap is brilliant and there is a lot of opportunity to create, excel, participate and learn.

    Cons

    Very little downside. If I had to pick one thing, it would be the old and disparate systems but there is an aggressive and well funded plan to solve this problem during 2018.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going on the path we're on!

    Pros

    Current department heads have caught up on past mistakes needing adressing left to them and moving forward, messes left by past management adressed and new products in the stream.

    Great team bonding and ability to work together

    Pleasant atmosphere and healthy workplace

    Cons

    I cant really think of anything glaring. I have never got out of bed dreading goin to work. Not once... Other than having to get out of bed ;)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what youre doing. The newest crew is fantastic. A FAR cry from what I witnesssed when initially hired as a contracter wondering what the heck was going on... And the later efforts by past leadership. The current leadership and management is fantastic. Ive been afforded alot of growth and opportunity.

    I like it here and dont see any reason to even think of leaving

    I worked at Verathon full-time

    Pros

    Vacation time starts at three weeks.

    Cons

    The New Executive Management Team is very arrogant. They turn a blind eye and don't want to hear what the employees really want. Extremely high turnover. Management says they want to keep the top talent, but push top talent out. Executive Management want's Verathon to be be the best place to work, yet hasn't done anything to show they really do mean what they say.

    Systems are OLD. Everything is manual and management does not want to hire new employees to help out with work loads after team members leave.

    There is no work life balance. You are looked down upon if you don't want to work overtime.

    Management/employee relationships are unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to your employees and take them seriously when they tell you what would make this a great place to work. Stop brushing employees off and learn how to be respectful. Be humble. Be kind. Work on recruiting top talent. Work on KEEPING top talent.

    Lack of opportunity for growth; Lack of communication and planning between departments; Common to repeat same mistakes and errors; Slow to evolve and improve technology

    Communication between departments and teams lacks and delays/disrupts flow of products to customers. Stand behind what you say, when you talk about coaching and developing employees.

    Pros

    Compensation for sales team is uncapped and can be extremely lucrative. Working at global HQ provides excellent visibility.

    Lack or winning culture and leadership from EMT. Inability for departments to communicate with each other creates a divisive work place.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box and don't fear using common sense to ensure that the decisions being made are in the best interest of the customers and employees.

    Pros

    This company is on the upswing, big-time. While it has experienced a low in the recent past, upper management realized this and responded to it appropriately, and phenomenally. We have a whole new management structure dedicated to customer satisfaction, product excellence, and employee appreciation. A recipe for success!

    Cons

    Some temporary teething pains in the onboarding process that will be resolved shortly, I believe. HR is very responsive to feedback and is actively improving the process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the momentum of the upswing going. We have discovered the formula for success; let's continue with it. I believe it will show up in the bottom line very soon!
