    Pros

    Nice environment, easy commute, 90% pleasant people, cool perks to work here.

    Cons

    Some people can be rude and condescending. The job can be hectic enough without being spoken to like your a child. One bad apple will ruin the bunch.

    Advice to Management

    You know who the problem is. Do something about it.

  2. Great company in theory, bloated and lacking true leadership in practice

    Pros

    Relatively flexible hours, good pay, beautiful facility, good effort in trying to "rally the troops" to change renal care.

    Cons

    Complacent engineering management, no true direction or project management leaves engineers and projects running in circles and wasting huge amounts of time and money.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been at the company since the beginning doesn't make them a good manager. Re-assess project management and lead engineers if you really want to get the next level projects moving.

    Pros

    A great product. Passionate, smart employees.

    Cons

    Highly political senior management team. CEO has his favorites. A few senior team members can be condescending and nasty.

    Advice to Management

    Your management team should reflect the behaviors that you want to see in the rest of the employee base.

    Pros

    nice office, decent pay, most employees can work with, ok culture, novel product line, great to see patients benefiting from equipment...

    Cons

    very reactive vs. proactive. A lot of "we need this today" at 4:49PM. Competition coming to market- job stability over next few years is uncertain. Stifled by some management that are stuck in outdated ways of doing business.

    Advice to Management

    stop talking so much and start listening to employees - they are your best resource!

    Pros

    Life changing therapy for chronic kidney failure patients

    Cons

    Unable to sell daily therapy because of government reimbursement

    Advice to Management

    Need a fresh outlook on how to move the company forward when competitors to market. Gone are the days of being the market leader with no competition.
