    Pros

    Great to be apart of something that's helping save lives! This company is everything. Abiomed has a great working culture. There's a lot of hands on and you are able to have a voice to implement ideas. This company is not like others, where they treat production workers like nothing. They acknowledge and show appreciate for the clean room operators. There's so much diversity. And everyone tries to work towards one common goal.

    Cons

    This place is the best. There aren't really any cons. You will only succeed here if you have a positive attitude and can adjust easy to many growing changes. The cafeteria or vending area should get the AVANTI Market because there are no close by places/stores to grab lunch or a snack if you've rush to work without a meal.

    Advice to Management

    I'm happy to be apart of this growing company.

    Pros

    People are friendly and knowledgeable. Heart pump is impressive, nice to work on product that helps people. Future business outlook good as pump becomes standard of care. Coffee is good.

    Cons

    No work life balance, unreasonable expectations, poor work environment. Given the product expected it would be great place to work. Discovered on first day that wasn't the case, disappointed.

    Pros

    Great product, people want to be there Most managers/directors are very hands on

    Cons

    Senior Management completely out of touch. They hired folks right out of the military with ZERO industry experience and put them into senior roles or high level management roles. Company organization is awful Below average pay and benefits 60 hour plus work week is expected

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people for how hard they work. Get rid of the slackers and recognize the individuals who work 24/7.

    Pros

    Great to see that your work helps in saving lives. Not too much politics. Friendly people. You learn a lot. Talented people.

    Cons

    Priorities change too often. Main reason for people leaving is they get burnt out from too much work. Management is a little disconnected. Insurance premium keeps going up. Annual salary increase is 2% of you meet expectation (hard to keep up with inflation).

    Advice to Management

    Hire more engineers. Connect with employees. Stop treating every project like an emergency.

    Abiomed is a company you can be proud and passionate to work for. The work at times is intense, but rewarding.

    Pros

    Knowing what you do saves lives. Good work for good pay. Most of the management team is understanding and reasonable to work with. Not a lot of politics.

    Cons

    In some departments, the work load is heavier than others and people are required to work 60-70 hours per week every week. Some of the executive team are micro-managers and haven't learned to trust their teams.

    Advice to Management

    Provide what you want done and guidelines and then let your teams execute.
