Management focuses on one metric
Engineering (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MNSeptember 8, 2017
Management focuses on one metric, despite the long term impact. Very focused looking good on paper short term and getting out in 2-3 years. Long term future is not good.

Overall a friendly environment
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Palm Springs, CASeptember 3, 2017
Overall a good place to work, but as of 2017 there's always a fear of lay offs due to new higher corporate management.

Site management is great to work with and staff is friendly. Never had a problem with anyone at the site in Palm Springs.

Pay is average and opportunities to advance are slim. Ability to set your own hours is a big plus as long as you put a full day's work in.
Pros
Relaxed environment, friendly staff
Cons
Poor opportunities for advancement

Uninspired Engineering
Engineering Department (Current Employee) –  Yorba Linda, CAAugust 17, 2017
This company largely exists as a highly corporate spinoff of the now defunct Carefusion, and their product catalog is almost exclusively products developed elsewhere, rebranded, and repackaged. If you are in engineering, there are a few downsides to this:

* Marketing is the boss on everything, and engineering is subordinate to them: This leads to a culture of constant rushing, and almost none of the methodical, scientific approach that leads to good engineering.

* No one has any big picture outside of senior management, leading to heavy compartmentalization and micromanaging. Because no one generally knows larger goals relating to projects, the constantly revolving engineering staff (more on that next) are largely left to a series of mundane experiments at the behest of marketing and driven by mysterious forces from above.

* Nearly everyone is hired on contract, and few people are given full time positions. In addition, contracts are limited to one year. So in effect, you are in and out very quickly, and most people spend a few months getting up to speed, followed by a few months of looking for their next job.

Beyond this, there seems to be a diversity issue at the company. By my count, the engineering department has hired ten white men in a row. I ran the stats, and at 95% confidence, for this to reliably not be a reflection of unconscious bias on the part of the people making the hiring decisions, about 73% of applicants would have to be white males, a highly unlikely prospect in Southern California.
Pros
Minimal challenge (if you are in to that type of thing)
Cons
Revolving door culture

Bottom line oriented. Cost cutting
Senior Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHAugust 11, 2017
Vyaire is new formerly Carefusion. Since new ownership many changes have taken place to cut costs and increase bottom line. Management is only results oriented and does not seem to care about employees in the field. Management has been turned over and the general culture has changed. I do enjoy being a sales representative and basically running my own business but recently this has become more an more difficult.

Difficult, demanding with no pay off
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Mettawa, ILAugust 8, 2017
This is an extraordinarily difficult company with little consideration for any employee. It's all about blame here. The products are old, irrelevant and unreliable. No leader has been here for much longer than a year and they have no idea of the competitive landscape. The pay is low and they find ways to reduce your compensation year after year. Most good employees have left and the ones who have stayed are beaten down. In fighting is the way of life at Vyaire. This company is the definition of failure mode.
Pros
"A job"
Cons
Low pay, unrealistic demands

The beatings will continue until morale improves
Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Yorba Linda, CAAugust 1, 2017
Criminally inept upper management, incredibly micromanaging middle and lower management. The company has decades of experience developing hospital ventilators, yet it's impossible to get requirements. Direction shifts with your manager's mood. Intelligent firmware engineers have all left, and layoffs happen on a monthly (or weekly) basis. Here be monsters.

Past vs Present
Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) –  Palm Springs, CAJuly 31, 2017
Vyaire has gone through multiple incarnations via mergers and spin offs. The current upper management team has taken a once wonderful place to work and stripped it's culture creating a very stressful job environment.

The product is life saving, critical care medical devices.
Every employee helps save a life every day.
The focus has moved away from that to bottom line profit margin generation. Yes they still save lives but it seems that is viewed as a byproduct of the profit margin instead of why they exist.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
High Stress

Great work environment with good people.
Engineering Technician II (Former Employee) –  Palm Springs, CAJuly 31, 2017
Work environment was fantastic as well as the people there. Management was lacking in communication and job security does not exist. Very fast paced environment, with overtime thrust on you with almost no warning at times.
Pros
Many activities to do during breaks
Cons
Lack of communication, no job security

Retirement House
Supplier Quality Engineer (Current Employee) –  Palm Springs, CAJune 6, 2017
This is where you go to retire. The company is surrounded with bunch "has been"s and their employees objective is to collect paycheck and the management's objective is to meet the bottom line at any cost including layoffs. So, no one focuses on the job. Huge disconnect between manufacturing and quality. Just a big headache.
Pros
None
Cons
Isolated location in PS, management, its current workforce

not a stable environment
Office Clerk (Former Employee) –  Palm Springs, CAJune 1, 2017
Expect employees to work long hours. Layoff' a common site. Great employees, but poor management. Always under pressue with constant finger pointing. I just wish I would have got out sooner to find a stable position.
Pros
Good pay and medical
Cons
no permanant emploees, constant fear of layoff.

Poor Management
Sr. Engineering Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Yorba Linda, CAApril 7, 2017
Management does not work well with one another, decisions are rarely agreed upon.
There is no recognition to employees for the great work performed, this causes very low morale and focus causing projects to be late or riddled with errors. Engineers are given unrealistic deadlines for high visibility projects that are closely watched by the FDA.
Pros
Location
Cons
Poor management, low compensation, no recognition
