Great environment, but under pays
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Skaneateles, NYJune 27, 2018
The culture and people are great, but the salary does not match the job requirements. I left Welch Allyn for another company and performed similar (actually, less) work and was paid $20k more a year at the new company.

The trade-off here is that Welch Allyn offers job security and a fun work environment. For me, the salary was a deal-breaker, but it could be worth it for others.
Pros
On-site cafeteria and fitness center
Cons
Low Pay

Great culture in engineering
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 25, 2018
Software and hardware engineering have these two amazing directors who ensure a drama-free and supportive workplace. The system is susceptible to yes-men/-women, and must work harder to keep them contained.
Pros
Wonderful co-workers from a once-family company, lots of fitness activites on site
Cons
Promotions and project assignment is not transparent

Good company. You can listen to your ipod while working. It was a monday through friday job so i loved having the weekends to myself. Loved seeing that a company cares about their employees because i met so many people that have been there for over 20 years.
Pros
Monday through friday job. Can listen to music while working.

Sr. Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Skaneateles Falls, NYFebruary 26, 2018
It is a great company. There is a great time off schedule once you are there for awhile. There is a gym if that is a perk for you. The job opportunities are few and far between for engineers.

R and D (Former Employee) –  Skaneateles, NYJanuary 15, 2018
I worked at Welch Allyn for almost 20 years. It was a great place to work when I started. The Allyn family was fabulous to work with and for. Still miss the Allyn days. They were the best days of my career.
Then Hill-Rom took over, the environment became stressful, lots of job cuts (people who had been there for 30+) years. Good strong, smart people were let go. It was dis-heartening. Moral was at an all time low. Many departments went through re-organization time and time again.
In addition to the job cuts the benefits package sunk, insurance premiums for single employees went up to $3,000 year and provided poor at best health coverage. Poor management was hired at the VP level and they made all of the folks in marketing re-apply for their jobs. Sad, people were let go. This management area was all out to make a name for themselves and soon left a little after a year. It was really great while it lasted.

Good Place to Build Character
Product Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Skaneateles Falls, NYNovember 27, 2017
Typically, you work the usual 40 hours a week situation. Depending on the department, there is the possibility for overtime. In Product Service, I learned of the various products that the company has made. The culture of the Product Service was very laid back, for the most part. It was just expected that fix your devices within the set turnaround time. The hardest thing about being a PS Technician was probably just getting the team leads to allow you to learn a new product line, as you would constantly have to "remind" them. Aside from that, working in Product Service was an overall very good experience.
Pros
401K, Dental, Vision, and Medical insurance
Cons
turnaround times sometimes unrealistic

You are held accountable for your actions and can make a difference in your job. You are working on medical devices that truly save lives. Your co-workers are committed to do their part to the best of their ability and they genuinely want the company to succeed.

See report for Protocol Systems, Welch Allyn acquired it in 2000 and then reorganized and relocated in 2014. My most recent position involved data analysis of product repair and reliability report generation for purposes of CAPA, Management reviews, engineering investigations, etc.

Production Supervisor
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 17, 2017
Upper management does not maintain a presence on the floor thus creating a chasm between them & operations. There are a lot of meetings, but changes are slow to come since no one wants to be the decision maker.
