A well run company in general, nice place to work in general, but training was minimal and you had better get it on the first pass - dont ask again!
IT Helpdesk Audiovisual Technician (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – June 11, 2017
I worked in the IT department as the AV tech. I had a tough but fair supervisor. The training was minimal and when I really needed help I did not get it.
Benenits were good, pay was ok
Lots of pressure working for execs, who mostly came in late to meetings, expected to have all up and running, but that was impossible, since they had to be there to log in and set up the teleconferencing meetings
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – October 23, 2016
A typical day consists of numerous processes in flow that require heavy attention to detail, team work, and self accountability. I have learned how to create the product we produce as well as all the necessary procedures from product formulation to packaging it for shipping. Management is constantly searching for new ways to make production more time and cost efficient, as well as speaking with employees to obtain advice for bettering procedures. Co-worker relationships are typically healthy and everyone is usually willing to lend a helping hand. The hardest part of the job is following behind fellow co-workers and trusting their integrity to their duties because one mishap from any person can halt a production. The most enjoyable part of the job is being in a process with co-workers that you can trust to do their job efficiently and are able to complete a process flawlessly.
Job security, teachable staff, lower management is helpful
expensive health care, non competitive wages, neglectful upper management
QUALITY CONTROL TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 29, 2015
This is a great company to gain experience and get your foot in the door, but the pay is too low to really consider a career here. The new CEO has spoken about working on raising pay, and if that actually happens I will definitely reconsider looking elsewhere because other than pay, the company is great to work for.
friendly coworkers, understanding environment, fun events to boost morale, nice facilities and parking
low pay, benefits could be better especially since we are a medical device company
Self satisfying, challenging, fun work environment
Audiovisual Help Desk Specialist / IT (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – June 17, 2015
CryoLife is a excellent place to work. The job was challenging but the most fascinating part of CryoLife is that the company helps to save lives. I was able to see first hand how the company helps families. I worked directly with 2 sets of organ donor families and 2 sets of organ recipient families that had visited CryoLife. I worked directly to welcome them as well as set up all of the audio video to broadcast their presentations. CryoLife is growing rapidly and I was very disappointed to leave.

Receptionist/Logistics Clerk (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – April 6, 2014
Working for this company was a challenge because it was a very busy, fast paced company. Lives depended on the speed in which products came in and out of the company. It was a company where everyone really worked together as a team and it felt like a family.
Great place to learn all manufacturing processes from formulations to final packaging.
Production Specialist (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – October 12, 2012
A typical day at Cryolife involves team work on every process. From staging of materials to aid the flow of production to cleaning of work stations. I learned about formulations, tissue processing, exposed to how to write SOP's and many other production related duties. Management was very hard working and open to feedback. Great co-workers. The hardest part of the job involved packing shippers on dry ice, very physical work. the most enjoyable part about the job involved filtering bulk solutions, and filling syringes.
