Company Culture

all boys club, learn how to play golf and sports betting office pools and you will be golden, also upper male management objectifies women employees behind their backs.

Support from management

not much mngmnt tells you one thing like your a great employee, turns out its the same speech to most just so you don't complain about raises.

Teamwork

everyone for themselves

Freedom to work independently

yes and no, if your hourly, your watched like hawk.

Internal Communication

legitimate concerns about management are overlooked by a "I have your back...this employee is making waves" lets make life difficult, leave no stone unturned to find ways to fire.

Gender Equality

women are always paid less

Career Development

they say yes but rarely do they have time to cross train

Overall compensation for your work

raises, you get what they can afford to split up.

Office / Work Environment

director will yell at you when in the wrong and apologies later for his childish behavior and will site procedures that don't exist to make you think you did something wrong.

Environmental Friendliness

they have recycle, but mostly goes in the same dumpster

Work-Life Balance

flex time a plus

Company Image

Cryolife Austin used to be On-X Life technologies, and the culture is still bad from what inside sources say.

Job Security

for a dead end job

Handicapped Accessibility

compliant

Workplace Safety

big on that most part

Challenging Work

same old stuff day to day in manufacturing

Inclusive / Diverse

if you speak good English, otherwise management blows you off.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Corporate should have removed the manufacturing director, as he has just a high school diploma and poor management skills, rules with an iron fist. Follow that by the VP who "hates change"... his words.

What I like about the company

medical benefits and flex time, vacation time is generous 25 days

What I dislike about the company

upper management boys club type of culture, once you learn a particular area, they are reluctant to move you around.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Mentoring programs, more growth opportunities & work life balance

What I like about the company

It's a great company, but job growth is slow.

What I dislike about the company

You can't work from home. The company has a high rate of employees having babies but there isn't a work life balance.

Workplace Safety

OSHA compliant

Suggestions for improvement

  • You have destroyed your initial reputation and your words are empty and meaningless. Try to recover your original reputation, if company success means anything to you at all.

What I like about the company

Beginners get good training base for future careers elsewhere.

What I dislike about the company

Old management retired and brought in worst scenario replacements. Rule by fear and toadying, bald faced lying to employees. Remaining good management read the writing on the wall and left as soon as possible, leaving mostly dregs behind them.

Company Culture

They are working to improve it, but they have been behind times for too long!

Support from management

No support...everyone is running scared.

Freedom to work independently

It is hard to make decisions that others will support.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is no emphasis on Diversity at this company. In fact, they only want to hire people who look like the leaders.

What I like about the company

Location

What I dislike about the company

Behind the times; constant turnover for no valid reasons. Expect perfection for everyone but senior leaders.
