    Well run organization who knows how to enjoy themselves

    As of late, goals have been extremely lofty

    I have been working at Welch Allyn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I walked away with a few lifelong friends. But the ones with their noses up in the air shall try being humble.

    Cons

    People are extremely snooty. Having worked there for 30+ years, they seem to know it all except how to merge with a corporate company such as Hillrom.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expecting so much from new employees. Instead, treat them like you'd like to be treated. Welch Allyn failed as a "great company to work for" if you ask me.

    I have been working at Welch Allyn full-time

    Pros

    Some of the coworkers are genuine and a true pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    No accountability, middle management issues, lack of training and development for people getting paid as a skilled professional or even subject matter experts.

    Advice to Management

    Train people, hold them accountable for their responsibilities. Recognize those folks who are carrying the bulk of the load with little to no appreciation or compensation. When you have folks making barely enough to scrape by telling someone who makes over 100k how to do their job properly that is a severe problem in the culture of the company.

    We help people. Generally, a good group of engineers.

    Cons

    crushing burden of self-imposed, overlapping processes.

    Advice to Management

    Suck it up and streamline the processes that don't add value.

    I worked at Welch Allyn full-time

    Pros

    makes products to help save lives.

    Cons

    train wreck management that is constantly moving without any direction. Hill-Rom purchased them so perhaps they will bring better managers but they need to get rid of almost all of the current middle engineering managers and bring in a new breed.
    Very little opportunities for advancement. In particular at the Beaverton Oregon site. They should just shut down that site all to gether IMO. Much lower pay than the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    do better screening of your managers. bring in actual schooled managers, not just wanna be managers who are engineers who could not even do their engineering jobs so decided to go management path.
