A collaboration of multiple organizations of varying cultures
Account Manager/Business Development (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – July 24, 2017
This organization has gone through multiple buy out and acquisitions in a very short period of time. The culture changed drastically. There a still good people working there and may become of more settling environments as time progresses.
Job Security/Advancement was based on the fact that I did advance, however, they have been letting a lot of people go and a lot of other good people have moved on.
Great place to work. Certain departments are better than others.

A typical day here can be long but is generally rewarding. When I worked here they valued continuing education, but I don't know how this may have changed in recent years as it has been 8 years since I have worked there. Upper management is great and seems to seek out suggestions from all levels. Management within each department can vary wildly, there doesn't seem to be any communication between departments to foster a fluidity across all areas. Workplace culture is strong. There are many programs in place to people together just not necessarily management. The hardest part of the job is growth. Unless you are part of the "Creative Department" there is not much room to grow outside of your current role and certainly not much outside of your hiring department.
Social, creative environment
Can be "clicky". Employee loyalty used to be rewarded here but has lost that in recent years.
30 small companies attempting to operate as one large company = frustration and dysfunction
Engineer (Current Employee) – Minnesota USA – January 17, 2017
Integer is made up of over 30 sites that are all mergers and aquisitions over the last 15 years. Most of the sites were never really integrated so it feels as though each site is a seperate company.
In general it offers good Pay, job security, but very little advancement and constant change of management. Lots of great technology, but unbelievably poor planning and direction. Its a prime example of a company with great mottos, mission statements, and lip service, but absolutely nothing to back it up. Its a potential manufacturing power house but it is its own worst enemy.
