    I have been working at CryoLife full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    CryoLife has been around for over 30 years. This is a "pro" because it shows that the company is intent on being stable and has projected plans on how to serve people by improving and possibly saving lives of patients needing specialized cardiac care.

     As a company, CryoLife strives to keep talented employees and encourages innovation all while maintaining a watchful eye on regulations and other compliance needs to ensure public safety.

    Working at CryoLife is very often referred to as having a family atmosphere where quite a few employees have worked together for many years, yet new employees are easily welcomed into the organization.

    Cons

    CryoLife has been around for over 30 years. This is also a "con" because companies can be entrenched in "this is how we have always done it." There is, at minimum, a three-pronged approach to update how CryoLife does business. First, all employees, including management, are involved in process improvement. Second, they are also ensuring that the company has effective and innovative products to offer doctors to help treat their cardiac patients. Third and this is very important, everyone, including the CEO, takes improving employee engagement as a critical part of further elevating CryoLife as a leader in the biotech industry. CryoLife is aware that a company is as strong as is employees and is dedicated to providing resources to help to strengthen its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on top of what you have started until you have reached a critical mass in mindset so that the breakthrough into the next level for CryoLife will be guaranteed to happen and guaranteed to stick. The new paradigm has already started and will continue to happen with management's continued dedication.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kennesaw, GA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CryoLife (Kennesaw, GA (US)).

    Interview

    Interviewed with the recruiter (via phone), technical interview (via phone) conducted by the hiring manager, and face to face interview with 4 different Cryolife employees. The overall interview process was quite pleasant, though some employees asked more challenging questions. In summary, the interview went well, great chemistry, and very honest outlook about the company. Although things went well, the interview trail went cold and there wasn't additional follow up.
