    I have been working at CryoLife full-time

    Pros

    Processing tissue is an amazing experience. Knowing your taking someone else's donated gift and helping others with it is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Management needs training. They seem to not care for their employees, just the numbers they put up.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like the smart, educated and talented individuals they are instead of a production assembly line. Happy employees want their numbers to be great.

    Pros

    Culture and morale has improved massively over the last few years.

    Cons

    HR is a disaster. Was much better 5 years ago. Have had several pretty large scale layoffs in the last few years after change of CEO and acquisitions.

    I worked at CryoLife full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent mission, dedicated employees, and good benefits. I worked for this company for a very long time, and left of my own accord to pursue another endeavor. I definitely experienced some rough patches over the years, but there has been a major shift (for the better) in corporate culture under the direction of Pat Makin. The interview process is stringent, but it has to be considering the nature of work. A lot of opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Hard work, difficult hours, and lower than average pay.... although this may have changed since I left.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve culture, appreciate your employees (especially the hard working and dedicated ones), and focus on creating a work environment based on positive feedback.

    I worked at CryoLife full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting industry in medical devices and life saving technologies. Overall intelligent workforce and most people were appreciative of your efforts and time. They do reward loyalty though.

    Cons

    Because the company is publicly traded and subject to SEC, FDA, and SOX compliance there are mountains of SOPs and red tape. Sometimes it feels like a bureaucratic nightmare to complete simple tasks. Some departments are easier to work in than others, and management does not always support or back up their staff when challenged by upper management. The benefits were not great considering the size of the company.

    None really that are relevant

    Pros

    Good products, fair compensation, increased stock price

    Cons

    Turning into Medtronic south. All upper management has come over from Medtronic

    Advice to Management

    Let employees and regional managers have a greater say in territory realignments.

    I have been working at CryoLife full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Growing company with relatively new management and excellent outlook for growth. Rewarding to working for a company that saves people's lives. Company is making efforts to improve employee engagement through new activities and perks like food trucks, massage chair events, fitness activities/coaching and a soon-to-come onsite gym.

    Cons

    Salaries and benefits, while good, could be better. (Couldn't they always?). Employees and departments tend to be somewhat siloed.

    Advice to Management

    Do more of what you're doing now to continue to improve employee engagement. Improve inter-departmental communication. Offer more opportunities for community involvement and education/career growth.
