Pros

Flexible hours - just get your work done
Comradery among co-workers

Cons

High expectation, little to no rewards
Lack of direction
Little to no mentoring, figure it out on your own.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop your employees, recongnize your employees, many here work hard with little or no recongnition and that is why turnover is greater than 25 percent in any given department annually

    Pros

    Vascular Solutions is an innovative company with unique products, as you can see by its product portfolio. The company continues to grow which will provide more opportunities for home office and field-based employees. Good facilities. Small medical device company which allows you to get to know people from all departments and enable faster, more effective collaboration.

    Cons

    Resources are lacking especially in Clinical and Reimbursement. Upper management in Marketing have a hard time showing respect, communication, encouragement, and motivation. The culture at VSI is "sink or swim" and it is hard to find empowered employees who do not feel beaten down. To succeed at this company, one needs to have thick skin especially if there is consistent interaction with Mr. Root who seems to thrive in a hostile environment. As another reviewer has pointed out, the retention rate is not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mandatory leadership training for all upper management - I think they need a basic Respect and Motivation of Your Employees 101. Move past micro-management and remember to provide consistent feedback.

    Pros

    Good startup type company - if you want something done, you can get it done quickly without a lot of red tape. Fast product cycles, good variety.

    Cons

    H.Root is very bright, but a difficult personality to work with. As a small company, you interface with him often. Typical term at VSI is about 1-2 years. Tough to feel good about what you are doing with the constant negative feedback and micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more autonomy to your workgroups. Treat people with respect to build longer term relationships.
