The company used to make you feel like you were of value.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Pre-2009 - The culture was perfect, where you had a sense of purpose, and everyone pulled together with great respect toward one another.Once Lean was adopted, the culture started to deteriorate. Although efficiency got better regarding meeting customer demands. However, the true issue is that Continuous Improvement and the "True North" journey are truly about the respect of the people. Respect for people is the key to a lean-driven culture! That was lost when respecting employees and giving them a sense of value diminished. That is not the true spirit of the Lean World. Management made it about the numbers and their spreadsheets and forgot about the true value of their people.The development was great for a bit. But it truly depended on if you were in the right clique. I was given opportunities to grow. That I am thankful for and always will be. But management acted like managers and not true leaders. There is a difference between managing and leading. The most respectful thing KS management can do is learn to be leaders."A bad system will beat a good person every time.”–W. Edwards Deming. Cteam - Listen to the people, respect the people, learn to have empathy. Get out of the mentality of blaming, you have lost too many great valuable employees. There are many organizations waiting for KS employees...They are valued and can offer a lot to the world. Thank you for allowing me to learn how not to be classified as "Management" and how to lack empathy. “Leadership is not so much about technique and methods as it is about opening the heart. Leadership is - 

Pros

Years of learning what not to do as a leader., The production folks, benefits. Leaders that I met.

Cons

Micromanaging, inconsistency, strict policies, lack of growth

Good Company Horrible Management

Silo environment. Sales staff allowed to disrespect staff and management never addresses. Non management staff wants to dictate while managers pretend to not see nor hear. The case management supervisor was terrible

This is the best company I have ever worked for!

Incredible culture, fast paced positive atmosphere. Truly it is like working for your family and want to put your best foot forward because they take such good care of their employees. You want to do your best for them to contribute the success and positive culture. You will never be sorry you took a chance to come work here.

Pros

Great benefits, great culture, flexibility, vacation, people!

Good people, Good purpose.

The people make KARL STORZ what it is. I can trust my co-workers, we have fun, we look out for each other and we all work hard. My management is excellent, inclusive and fair, although it may vary by department.It's nice to know your work has a real effect on someone (a patient) at the end of the day, rather than working on some garbage consumer technology that is just filling up landfills on the planet and polluting our environment.

Pros

People, Pay, Benefits, Purpose

Cons

Long Hours... you have to pace yourself and know when to say no.

Ok

It was OK. Very corporate but lots of opportunities to develop skills and move into other positions. PTO, benefits and work life balance were great. Successful company with good job security.

Good Company, Lots of overtime, Company will not hire more people to reduce backlogs

You better like working every mandatory Saturday, if not you will be charged sick time. Upper management is paranoiac of loosing their jobs and push people creating a cut throat environment. This causes quality issues especially when people rush building medical equipment. Cutting corners to hit production numbers is not the way to go.

Pros

Good Benefits, Good PTO

Cons

Too much overtime, no time for family

Culture is toxic and emotionally unstable

There is a clique in upper management and the C- team is dysfunctional. Reach out to former employees to receive the truth. Ask why long tenure employees left!

Pros

Benefits and the assemblers

Cons

Lack of growth, narcissistic bullying, threats, public humiliation, email humiliation, lack of respect for the most important people, lack of consistency with HR, silent bullying, threats

It was a family oriented company

There is no work life balance! You are literally always on call, due to unreliable product. This company used to be very family oriented and pleasant to work for.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

No work, life balance.

Bad management and micromanaging employees

When I began working for KARL STORZ it was an amazing company. However, things went downhill around 2018 and management had completely changed within the company. Supervisors micromanage, but somehow are not available when you need help with something or have a question. The only pro to working there is good benefits. The pay is not enough for the amount of work you do and the constant overtime that is required. You're going to be required to do things that should be done by your supervisor. Lastly, if you're looking to learn more so you can be promoted, its most likely not going to happen. They promise for years they will cross train you. Only cross train you partially, and then say you need it all to be promoted and will expect you to work on what you were partially trained to do.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Micromanage, overtime, bad pay

Not a well ran operation in Auburn

There are great benefits with this company. The work is not hard. I feel the management needs to be more experienced and professional. They hire a lot within which is good although they have a lot to learn when it comes to safety and well being of their employees. They are big on talking about "One team one roof" but the disrespectful way that management belittles their employees is not working as a team but more working for a dictatorship. If you have a mind of your own don't work for them. They like robots that will go along with their lies and the picture they want to paint. Not the reality of the workplace.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Poor leadership and HR team

Could Be Great

My time here has been alright. The benefits are nice. 3 weeks time off when you start, which goes up a week every 5 years. Free coffee, nice breakroom. They have an open market in case you forget your lunch. No great work/life balance. Constant changes to overtime and schedule with hardly any advance notice.I would say this place could be great, but the management team is pretty awful. They don't do anything until things get real bad, then they sort of slap a bandaid on the problem and hope its enough.

Pros

Benefits and PTO

Cons

Management is terrible
