Be Careful
Finance Associate (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA18 October 2017
The company makes great products and is successful. The personalities I dealt with in management were closed minded. However, most people seem to like it since there is little turnover.
Pros
Great products, strong stock
Cons
Uncaring management

productive and fun workplace with ping pong table
VP or R&D (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA28 September 2017
learn a lot specially the clinical knowledge
days were intense and fruitful
there's a culture of price for performance, in fact part of the pay (Bonus) is directly depended on the results you sign up for at the beginning of each calendar year
The hardest part is planning and estimating the cost of program with accuracy and to stay on plan. Also execution of the plan for the year
The most enjoyable part of the job has always been when you see the products get to be used in clinical settings with good results for patients. Nothing is more gratifying than experiencing the products you work on for years is used in patients with good outcome
Pros
Helping patients and loving the work you do
Cons
Intense, long hours but mostly the politics envolved

Get place to work if you have a good manager to report to
Staff Engineer (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA27 September 2017
I worked at Edwards for 26 and a half years. Most of the experience was very positive. The company always had a lot of internal politics going on and bickering between levels of management, product lines, and the satellite plants. I was immune to it until my manager of 22 years retired. Its a great place to work if you have a good manager. But when you get on in years there, and getting close to retirement, they take a heavy handed approach to getting rid of people. If you happen to work for a good manager, your experience will be a positive one. The problem is that there are a lot of bad managers there who are career climbing and creating empires for themselves. They don't care who they hurt financially. Good luck! The CEO is great, but didn't do me any good at the end.
Pros
Great campus, nice lunch room, good benefits.
Cons
If someone is out to get you, they will, they don't care who they hurt.

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.

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

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
