Creative, learning experience with a new division, new product and an aspiring manager.
Sales Training Materials Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNApril 26, 2018
This felt like a collaborative effort with the division managers (sales training, nurse clinicians, sales reps, call center) that challenged me to bring together text and images to create sales tools, training books and marketing worksheets. I was appreciated and challenged. The culture surrounded diabetes treatment with a new cutting edge insulin pump that helped people around the world. Once the training was implemented, the pace slowed down and allowed to look more closely at such things as translation projects and diabetes events for the public.
Pros
challenging, creative, fast paced
Cons
uncertainty of the future success of their product over time

Regulatory Shared Services Specialist (Current Employee) –  Plymouth, MNMarch 11, 2018
This company strives to do great in the industry and tries to keep employees happy, but falls short putting good managers in place and in having good systems in place. Turnover is high, morale is lower than average.

All this and foosball & table hockey!
Sr. Supplier Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MNFebruary 9, 2018
As a contractor Smiths Medical (SMASD) in Plymouth is the type of assignment a contractor would like every time. While the tasks at hand are highly regulated by the FDA which demands an increased level of knowledge SMASD also is cognisant of the need for quality down time even at work. Hence the foosball, table hockey, a fabulous cafeteria that augment a work culture and physical environment (brand new facility!) that makes SMASD very appealing and rewarding.
Pros
Positive culture, minimal politics, very focused on collaboration.
Cons
nothing that is a show stopper

Slow paced - Individualistic
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Southington, CTJanuary 6, 2018
The job for me was temporary and part-time. I worked as a machine operator 12 hours a day on the weekends. The job itself was very individualistic, you would go throughout the entire day hardly talking to anyone. You had your list of machines you needed to inspect regularly as well as doing quality inspections of the products.
Pros
Room for advancement
Cons
Long hours, days that dragged

Global / energizing environment with open work space and high degree of interdepartmental collaboration.
Senior Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Plymouth, MNDecember 30, 2017
U.S. Marketing Management responsibilities are heavily weighted toward U.S. Sales support in Promotion and Pricing for capital equipment acquisition through an RFP process and Clinical Evaluation.

Senior Leadership is committed to New Product Development while at the same time raising Employee Satisfaction Scores. Because we are publicly traded on the British stock exchange, financial metrics are critical, both quarterly and annually. The Smiths Group (parent company) is U.K. based.

The most enjoyable part of the job is bringing major initiatives to completion - whether that be a product launch or a Field Safety Corrective Action. The hardest part of the job is managing multiple product lines, handled by two different sales groups.
Pros
Positive, fast paced / collaborate culture and beautiful new building (Plymouth, Mn).
Cons
Multiple product line responsibilities

fast pace and competitive production set
Assembly Operator (Current Employee) –  Southington, CTDecember 7, 2017
a typical day at work was doing as much production as possible (had fun) but took my job seriously the hardest part of the job was being trained they expected me to know things right from the start but they were understanding most of the time the most enjoyable part is if you were working beside people you can relate to if not your going to end up getting yelled at most of the time (EOE) yeah the company itself is but not some of the people you work with
Pros
nice pay, nice cafe area and most people are nice if you don't move up in the job chain
Cons
had to go to the HR dept. and before me 2 people quit because of the guy i had to work with

Account Manager (Medical Devices Sales) (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 9, 2017
regardless what company I work for, I love my job. I sell life changing products and I am proud of the way I take responsibility. I have the opportunity to work in the company and it will be very unfair if I don't recognize how much I learned on the medical field during the past 6 years.
Pros

Cons
constantly culture/management change

Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Southington, CTSeptember 27, 2017
With the old supervisor gone, the shift manages well, maybe even better, without one. The third shift interim supervisor does a great job managing the shift, but like others doesn't get enough recognition for what he does.
