    Pros

    Nice work life balance, great colleagues and workplace. New management has new ideas and fresh attitude. Climbing up the ladder is slow.

    Cons

    Low salaries and bad people management. Slow career advancement. No new projects. No bonuses. No learning possibilities and very strict procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Very big middle management with undefined roles. You have bright and brilliant people in low levels and you must address them or they will leave.

    Pros

    High Salary and opportunity for bonus

    Cons

    Zero training for new employees, management is horrific, gives no direction and attempts to micromanage to the point of tripling tasks. False promises, no job security, each person for themself. The product is dated, huge lack of innovation and sales numbers are at the mercy of patient reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Show compassion, invest in your workforce, don't be so quick to throw your team under the bus. Train!

  8. One year good training and then exit out

    Pros

    The other employees are great people

    Cons

    *Management is oblivious and arrogant
    *Every person for themselves vibe, management would rather throw you under the bus than help you learn
    *No official training program
    *Outdated technology in regards to their systems and product
    *Extremely understaffed in all departments, they are constantly behind on all reports
    *High employee turnover

    Advice to Management

    Get a whole new team in there. They push too hard to get projects done in an unrealistic time period and do not understand or care that they are too understaffed to meet thier own goals.

    Pros

    Learned in depth the workings and pitfalls of EP cardiac diagnostics in practices and institutions, as there was no continuous formal training program with Lifewatch

    Cons

    Abusive Management and personnel turnover because of incompetence and illegalities (check out the IG reports on Lifewatch, as well as whistle-blower suits).

    Advice to Management

    Follow the laws, don't promote managers illegally bribing customers or falsifying billing codes.

    Pros

    Good product and technology...Sales people can make a decent living and earnings. Top reps make over $200K

    Cons

    The Chairman provides such an unfortunate work environment that forces a new Sales VP Leader out every year. A lot of really good reps and managers have left LW due to his poor decisions. He doesn't value his employees.
