    Pros

    Nice environment, easy commute, 90% pleasant people, cool perks to work here.

    Cons

    Some people can be rude and condescending. The job can be hectic enough without being spoken to like your a child. One bad apple will ruin the bunch.

    Advice to Management

    You know who the problem is. Do something about it.

  6. Very satisfied.

    Pros

    Machine shop access, good pay, office supplies...am I at the 20 word minimum yet? I realized early on that they're not an innovative company. I thought it was cool to be working back in the machine shop, until I realized that they do not have a culture of colloboration, mentorship or growth.

    Cons

    Safety, poor management and vision/lack of leadership, CEO seems aloof as to the leadership within (or lack thereof) in engineering.

    Advice to Management

    focus on sales, fire engineering department and start fresh

    Pros

    Company provides a service that has an amazing impact on on improving the quality of life for the dialysis patients that use it. Extremely rewarding to see the positive change it can make.

    Cons

    Did not believe the company was making the right long term commercial decisions. It is an R&D company and struggles with optimizing the commercial opportunity.

  10. Great company in theory, bloated and lacking true leadership in practice

    Pros

    Relatively flexible hours, good pay, beautiful facility, good effort in trying to "rally the troops" to change renal care.

    Cons

    Complacent engineering management, no true direction or project management leaves engineers and projects running in circles and wasting huge amounts of time and money.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been at the company since the beginning doesn't make them a good manager. Re-assess project management and lead engineers if you really want to get the next level projects moving.

    Pros

    Comfortable environment, new office, friendly people, good benefits. A feel good place to work. Patient interaction is very positive.

    Cons

    Most co-workers are great and work as a team although there are a few that try to lead by intimidation. Thankfully not many. Overall it's a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with what is going on in the general day to day work flow of your employees.
