Good place to work all in all
Associate (Former Employee), Irvine, CANovember 26, 2014
Pros: onsite fitness center, benefits, paid shutdown over christmas break
Cons: entitlement culture, no hr support for employees
Edwards (Formerly Baxter Healthcare) does its best to foster an environment of personal growth, work/life balance, health and wellness, and to "act like an owner", but some of that feeling has been lost over the past 5 years or so; whether it was the explosion of the Trans-catheter Heart Valve business, or the influx of recent college graduates with – more... an "entitlement" complex, the company has grown quickly, but that might not have been the best for the culture. It felt like the management had lost touch a bit with what made the core values so easy to buy in to when the company first split from Baxter, and rewards and advancement seem to favor the newer staff, while the "originals" are often left behind, without a true voice. I loved my time there, and thought I'd retire from Edwards, but when new management came in my area and cleaned house, I eventually felt completely demoralized by their actions, and I lost all sense of accomplishment. My decision to leave was a difficult one, but necessary to preserve my integrity and work ethic. – less

Edwards Summary
Senior Engineer (Current Employee), Irvine, CAOctober 12, 2014
A typical day is usually spent in meetings. I've learned that the ability to influence is key. The management is average, the company values going with the flow rather than true talent and capabilities. If you are good at following orders rather than doing what makes sense, given enough time you will move up. Some coworkers are great some are not. There – more... is a good sense of community, however career progression is not very forgiving if you are the type that would like to move up given capabilities. – less

Pros: you can expand your opportunities within the company
Cons: starting pay is not enough depending on what position you get
A typical day at work consists of being reliable, showing operator’s teamwork, and reminding them how important it is to follow SOP's and drawings. Also, I insure the lines always have works orders available so there's no down time. Edwards is a company were you learn and grow, management come from many different backgrounds and are still learning on – more... a daily bases. The job is not hard or difficult to perform; it's just about taking the time to understand the process. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to work with a diversity of cultures, being able to learn about them what makes the job interesting. – less
