Transitional period for business
Manager (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJuly 26, 2017
Much has changed since starting at Invacare several years ago. The culture has changed, some long overdue, some has made the day-to-day experience much harder. Long term, the changes may prove to be the right moves, but for now, the transition puts extreme demands on the team.
Pros
Easily commute due to suburban HQ location
Cons
Job responsibilities consolidated to do more with less

Professional (Former Employee) –  Sanford, FLJune 21, 2017
Was once a good company. Not so much anymore. Lost touch with changes in the industry and meeting the needs of their customers and end users. Will see if new leadership can make changes in the right direction.

Company does not understand industry nor FDA
Quality Assurance Manager (Former Employee) –  Elyria, OHApril 12, 2017
Company completely does not understand how to meet FDA requirements. Management has shifted from a family type environment to a hostile one with employees being blamed for most of the issues.

There is heavy favoritism (toward the younger folk) and worse - cost cutting has compromised quality and safety. Many good knowledgeable employees have been let go or resigned.

Best to avoid this company.
Pros
Local medical device manufacturer
Cons
Poor and draconian management

Upper management has forgotten the little details-the employees. Decisions being made to get out of FDA Decree are digging them in deeper. Company will need miracle to recover.
Pros

It was a great place to work. I learned a lot. Management is good... but they introduce a lot of new concepts, but often fall short on implementing and communicating on the new concepts.
