- AtriCure (West Chester, OH / United States)24.Nov 2015
The company isn't open-minded to employees suggestions for improvement. They did not take many good ideas into consideration from many different departments.
Support from management
The leadership team struggles to maintain a cohesive voice. They also struggle to grow/develop/cultivate talent in-house. Their mind set is focused on "getting rid of older employees" and bringing on new employees with no knowledge of the history of the company or it's products. Their focus isn't on healing, as it was when the company was smaller - it's focus is on making money and paying the executive team well.
Management doesn't understand the positions they manage - therefore it affects teamwork in all departments.
The company seemed to focus on negative issues in the workplace instead of looking for and rewarding positive efforts.
No - the new management came in and wanted all old employees out...regardless of their experience or knowledge in the company and it's products/procedures.
Overall compensation for your work
No, they do not pay well for the Cincinnati area.
No - I've ran into other people that have had very bad experiences working for this company, as well.
No - as they fluctuate and grow, they do not make employees feel stable to comfortable with their executive decisions.
No - no ramps for disabled employees.
Yes - we were all proud of the work/effort we put into our jobs to help save people's lives. However, the company was growing so fast, that that focus was lost.
Inclusive / Diverse
No, diverse ideas and opinions were not considered.
Suggestions for improvement
- They should focus on keeping older employees that have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their field. They should also recruit more personable, experienced executives - they continue to bring executives into positions where they have no knowledge or experience. They hire their friends, as well as unqualified executives and managers that do not set good examples for their employees.
What I like about the company
The products, the procedures, working with surgeons and medical staff. Working with seasoned employees.
What I dislike about the company
The new executive team that was hired over the last 3 years. None of them connect with their employees in encouraging ways. They do not lead by example and were determined to "rid" the company of anybody that had extensive knowledge of their products/services on-site in West Chester, Ohio.
