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, GAJune 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.
Pros
Benenits were good, pay was ok
Cons
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

Productive Workplace
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) –  Kennesaw, GAOctober 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.
Pros
Job security, teachable staff, lower management is helpful
Cons
expensive health care, non competitive wages, neglectful upper management

Great introductory job
QUALITY CONTROL TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 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.
Pros
friendly coworkers, understanding environment, fun events to boost morale, nice facilities and parking
Cons
low pay, benefits could be better especially since we are a medical device company

Ok place to work
Microbiologist II (Current Employee) –  KennesawSeptember 2, 2015
Nice company but no advancement opportunities present. Good job for people fresh out of college. I like the type of work they do, but not somewhere you would want to stay forever.

Repetitive and boring production work
HeRO Assembly Associate II (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 22, 2015
Working in production, is simple and boring repetitive work. It's the same tasks, every day. With that said, the company is headed on the right track and does offer good benefits.

Self satisfying, challenging, fun work environment
Audiovisual Help Desk Specialist / IT (Former Employee) –  Kennesaw, GAJune 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.

Productive company that cared about people, both in and out of the company.
Receptionist/Logistics Clerk (Former Employee) –  Kennesaw, GAApril 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.

Production Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kennesaw, GAOctober 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.

the most enjoyable part about the job involved filtering bulk solutions, and filling syringes.
