“Pros: The company truly cares about the patient and celebrates with them at on-site mini conventions each year. Very, very smart people here. Executive leadership really leaned into addressing racial inequality last year. Cons: Organizational structure doesn’t change much, can’t manage hyper-growth because of it. Executive leaders are great, middle management is just trying to get a product out the door because of staff shortages; it holds us back from bringing in young, diverse talent.” ––Current employee
“Pros: Culture is terrific; focus for division strong; innovation was solid; team focus; leadership position. Cons: As any company grows, more layers are needed and responsiveness slows.” ––Former employee
“Pros: Many colleagues were good to work with. They were kind and willing to help provide explanations or direct to the person or people who would be able to assist. Cons: Management promoted people lacking a solid understanding of FDA regulations. Lower management was lacking in how it handled issues brought to their attention.” ––Former employee
