I have been working at Welch Allyn full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good pay & benefits
Some good learning opportunities, especially to learn many parts of the business
Modern facility for headquarters
Some executives and managers are very capable

Cons

Very rural setting in Skaneateles and often translates into rural thinking
Very consensus driven culture with a need to exhaustively review every decision
Rewarding some bad behavior in management and consistently low performers
Many of the systems and processes found in similarly sized businesses are missing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in the innovation you need for the future and take more risk, in this global economy you can no longer rely on just making quality products that last forever.

    I have been working at Welch Allyn full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Family life is given importance, big layoffs are rare

    Cons

    At Beaverton for 9+ years with very high performance marks but there is no room to move up. Raises are COL only.
    A major re-org, significant personnel layoffs, and re-vamped product vision every few years leads to very low morale. The employee morale has been low here for many years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Skip the every 2-year re-org & layoffs and shoot for the 4 year mark.
    The NY based CEO and upper management treats the Beaverton site with very little respect.
    Raise morale in the company somehow.
