long stressful days
Design Assurance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Chaska, MNNovember 9, 2018
There is a lot of turnover of engineers here because managers are incompetent and blame you for their mistakes. Engineers are expected to work 50-60 hours/week. They lied to me in my interview about time commitment . . . do not trust anything they tell you in the interview. Avoid the trouble and DO NOT interview here . . . If you do take a job here, CONTINUE LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB and take the first one you can get. . . eventually they will ask for more and more hours and blame you for their mistakes. Benefits were very bad too.

The most enjoyable part of the job
Collections Specialist (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 5, 2018
The teamwork within the group that I work with is very strong. Each person brings something unique and helpful to the team allowing strong brainstorming sessions and equality.
Even when the work load is heavy, the group works together to get things done.

Too many checks
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJune 4, 2018
They did a credit report to see if I can run a CNC machine. They pushed me to give my notice then two days before they took back their offer after my background check came back and my credit report came back. Why do they care what my credit score it to run a machine?

Downward spiral since acquisition
Machine Operator II (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn Park, MNMay 13, 2018
Started as a contractor and was converted in a few months. Job culture and atmosphere was great for a year or two. Another company came and purchased our entire company and all its plants worldwide. Hasn't been the same since...
Benefits were great until the change. High deductibles and poor coverage. PTO is ok. 401k is good.
Job culture has changed. They still focus on quality but some departments are favored over others. Management has changed too much and good supervisors, engineers and long-time employees are gone. HR has changed multiple times.
There's no consistency in management styles, staffing levels affect value streams and it's always come from behind.

Poor management. Thoughts of cutting costs only. Not at all concerned with quality of product or adding new clients. Can barely hold onto current ones
Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  MinnesotaMay 9, 2018
The people seem very collaborative but need additional training. Management is not concerned with improving customer relationships. They’re too busy avoiding lawsuits from customers.
Pros
Great potential to become a top medical device mfr.
Cons

Technician, Set-up Machinist (Current Employee) –  Salem, VA 24153May 3, 2018
Alot of work. Some work harder than most. The ones that do not work hard tend to leave more work on other employees to pick up there slack. Not much action has been applied to fix this problem.

Bad management. Losing clients

Losing business and firing employees. The management team is now gone which should help now. Most people are looking for other companies..There are some competent employees but the management team is clueless. Good riddance.

It used to be a great company
Sales (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MNFebruary 11, 2018
Almost 3 years ago, Greatbatch Medical Purchased Lake Region Medical. It should have been a perfect match. The integration has been too slow. Currently the ELT is mired in politics, unrealistic expectations and very little respect for its employee's.
Pros

manipulative and competitve environment

They are trying but not there yet.
Management (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn ParkDecember 27, 2017
As a new Manager, it was confusing and without direction. There was no training period and it turned into a sink or swim environment. HR was not effective and communication was barely possible. There was no formal schedule for off shift support for the manufacturing areas.

The company hired inexperienced machine operators and trained them to do the work. Many left after becoming trained and were hired by competitors for much more money. There was much complaining and a ton of unhappy underpaid employees.

The only positive was a paycheck. I started looking for another position with other companies 1 week after starting. I found a much better position within days and was happy to leave the company.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Kaotik no direction shoot from the hip decision making.
