    I worked at LifeWatch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice employee treatment most of the time. The salary is at the higher end of the spectrum.

    Cons

    Constant changes in procedures and projects due to poor decision making of the top management. Most of the planning is abandoned or changed.

    New technology is rarely utilized.

    Lots of gossiping and scheming at the middle and lower management levels.

    They offer you a mutual agreement contract termination with the current date.

    Advice to Management

    First identify what is all of the relevant information.
    Don't start planning without all of the relevant information that is required.

    Also allow for the employees at the lower hierarchy levels to review and rate the performance of their superiors, more metrics is always better for the HR decision making.

    I worked at LifeWatch full-time

    Pros

    Insurance is available. Good PTO policy.

    Cons

    The company has gone through many major, unpredictable changes for the past 9 years or so; changing CEO's, eliminating departments, constant change of managers and supervisors, rules, and regulations. Your job is never secure and you can get let go at any time. If you get let go, they let you know at the end of the day/shift; your personal items are retrieved for you. Management gets away with bullying; uses coworkers as spies; convince coworkers to be enemies; promotions denied due to animosity yet work you to the bone. There is frequent Mandatory overtime. Definitely, not a job I would recommend.

    Pros

    Likeable people. Good pay. New management is trying to change the very siloed culture. Efforts are being made to improve the company to be more attractive to existing employees and to new people.

    Cons

    The company is still challenged by a lot of disorganization. It has difficulty recognizing and advancing its best employees and supporting those that are good contributors. The office itself has not been upgraded for many years and is suffering from looking a bit tired.

    Advice to Management

    Move faster on the investments and improvements for employees including a more formal evaluation and advancement process, renovated office environment, and recognize that you have talented employees that are in demand in other companies.

    Work is performance-based which if you are a hard worker, that can be good. Management is generally helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Performance-based work contributes to lower quality work; this area needed improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Put Quality first
