Liked it at first, but then qualifications changed based on production rather than accuracy. Job specifics changed because they decided to experiment with a new department.

I was employed

Expectations not clear and changed frequently.

Lack of direction
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CA21 July 2017
The Critical Care group, GUI team, suffers from a lack of direction. There is a great amount of micro-management, keeping track of the times you are away from your desk. But they don't seem to know what we are working on.
Pros
None
Cons
Micro-management, and is controlled by a remote team of contractors.

Excellant workplace culture
SR. PACKAGING/MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA13 July 2017
The Director of Process Engineering which I reported to was very supportive, allowing me the latitude to develop and implement my own business strategies on the projects assigned with minimal supervision.

I was able to successfully cross-collaborate with all levels of management (QA, RA, Mfg., R&D, Marketing, etc.) at Irvine, Singapore and Switzerland to successfully implement the development and transfer of new sterile and non-sterile bulk component packaging for routine shipments throughout these locations.
Pros
Excellant lunch, and recreational areas
Cons
Parking facilities were limited and in need for expansion

Zero Work life balance
Neptune- Assisted Fluid Management System (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CA2 June 2017
Good place to learn new technologies and advance in career, but no work life balance. Always, the management demands to work for 60-70 hrs per week. Unrealistic timelines, improper planning and no respect for the resources.
Cons
Work-life balance

Great Company, Inexperienced Management
Clinical Trials Reg Documentation, Specialist (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CA30 May 2017
Multiple managers over duration of employment; Too many chiefs, poor communications between departments; changes were made to processes and procedures without involvement of key personnel which caused workflow to suffer and lack of trust between field and in-house personnel - managers in place with lack of knowledge of what staff's roles, daily tasks and time factor involvement resulting in unrealistic deadlines. Focus tends to be too much on a person's scholastic background rather than whether a person is a good fit and can perform the job successfully. Not much room for career growth unless you transfer to another dept. Difficulties with obtaining work/life balance throughout departments causing employee burn out; Overall company is an excellent company and same goes for quality of products. Benefits are excellent.
Pros
Great products; Excellent Benefits
Cons
Inexperienced managers, poor communication, poor training

Working in this company is a lot of benefit. People around workplace is very polite and fun. Leader is really take a good care of the staff. Working here just no pressure but they are very straight in committed with the job. The hardest job is they have a target, if staff cannot achieved they will terminate even in probation. Working day like normal 5 day/week and they have overtime in Saturday and Sunday.
Pros
