    Pros

    Market Leaders in their segment, rewarding work given you are creating a medical device that saves lives on the daily.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management riddled with office politics. In some cases, lofty titles given to individuals who literally didn't know how to use a USB thumb drive. Some managers who feel threatened by able employees, look for ways to show them the exit door.

    Advice to Management

    Please do an introspect and realize that a company is only as good as the people who work there.

    Pros

    Semi rewarding work. There’s a gym.

    Cons

    First, you will be promised growth, but ZOLL hardly promotes within!!!!! Ever! You can switch departments after 2 years! But no actual growth! Awful management, selfish and abusive verbally. Pay is not nearly enough for the work and stress. Toxic, toxic, toxic culture. Management will not hear your suggestions Management is always right Teams are clicky and gossipy, don’t be surprised of walking in on conversations...

    Advice to Management

    You know that you are under qualified to manage! Leave to work for a pizza chain or something where you can abuse your team emotionally and verbally there. We are sick of management coming in every morning in a different mood that we have to figure out—bipolar freaks who let their wives and home lives manage the way they treat us!!

    Pros

    Good pay & perks. Amazing products, great back story. Opportunity to learn.....

    Cons

    .....but not to grow. Employees are pigeonholed. I've observed excellent employees with awesome track records be sidelined for new blood. Old guard management, old way always the best way. Communications are abysmal, phone calls & emails are returned, on average, after 3 days. Sales is king (unless #'s aren't made, which is reasonable) and other depts are merely peons with no real authority or input.

    Advice to Management

    Change would be ZOLL's best friend.

    Pros

    Great Pay. Coworkers are supportive

    Cons

    Your best is NEVER good enough. There is constant micromanaging. A relatively simple position has been made more difficult with the micromanaging. A lack of respect for employees and their talents. There is no work-life balance to get a day off you need to explain away. NO flex time even though there is supposed to be. The process to try and move to another position is difficult as before you even apply you have...

    Pros

    -Truly great products of the highest quality and performance capability. Zoll continuously updates the design not only for sustaining reasons, but introduces new features as well. Culturally employees embrace the fact that the products they work on save lives and understand what comes with such level of responsibility. - Absolutely unbelievable processes and systems to ensure product quality and process controls....

    Cons

    The level of cultural toxicity caused by upper management within Operations/Manufacturing is on a level that I have not only never witnessed before, but have never even heard of in all my years working. A truly unbelievable combination of select individuals that strike fear into their employees through public humiliation, screaming, inability to listen, rejection/discouragement of ideas and dictating. Undermining, favoritism,...

    Advice to Management

    Conduct an employee satisfaction survey with quantifiable results tied directly to the employee's manager, and not just the overall high level company. Take those results and mandate managers with poor scores given by their staff to make improvements. Don't just measure your management team on revenue achieved and amount of satisfied customers. That way you will ensure that poor managers either improve, or do not work...

    Pros

    ZOLL Medical Corporation is a great organization that makes top of the line medical devices.

    Cons

    Hardly any opportunities for growth, management style is very old school and they don't seem to invest a lot in employees. Benefits and pay are decent, but defiantly could be better considering the industry they operate in. Very weak company culture, everyone works in silo's.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your people!! Create a more open environment to increase morale and culture.

      I have been working at ZOLL Medical

      Pros

      Alot of freedom depending on your department. Flex time, PTO, and some OT is nice.

      Cons

      In my 6 years at Zoll I realized most areas appear to be micromanaged by people that don't understand the actual job requirements and a large majority of the superiors don't take employee feedback into consideration. Communication and support is a huge issue between management and employee. What little feedback or concerns they are willing to listen to is rarely followed up with. Promoting within is extremely rare for...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to and appreciate your employees, help them grow and develop a better skillset to move into better positions within the company. Allow growth without outsourcing roles from sister companies.
