Assembly Line Lead (Current Employee), Draper, UTJanuary 29, 2014
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

Great historical valve business that brought leading innovations in pericardial replacement valves and mitral rings, but recent management seems challenged to bringing new technologies to market in a timely manner. Transcatheter valve business seems to be doing well.

Working As A Temp Proofreader in Global Labeling
Proofreader (Former Employee), Irvine, CAApril 17, 2013
Pros: decent pay for a rather simple job
Cons: gossip, lack of leadership, exclusion of temps from almost everything
You are given little training and the rest is a "learn as you go" process. This includes being told information that may contradict what you've been taught. You are not at liberty to edit documents and are sternly warned by your superiors if you do.

There is very little opportunity for advancement into permanent positions, especially proofreaders who – more... seem to be a dime a dozen and are routinely discarded without notice. Contingent staff treated differently than permanent staff and are always excluded from events one would deem beneficial to all such as meetings with the CEO or charitable work. They can't even attend the annual holiday party without paying for tickets.

The "old guard" at Edwards seems set in their ways and it's doubtful anything will change. While a quiet place to work, high-school gossip is still to be expected.

Management is virtually non-existent or incompetent, and those in charge speak to proofreaders as if they are not capable of comprehending the instructions of even the most menial task ("Does that make sense?" with a sneer is often the last thing you will be told). Meetings are eventful -- everybody thinks their way is the best solution to the problem. The level of egoism within the department is beyond measure.

Workflow is very inconsistent. Some days there will be nothing then some weeks you have an abundance of overtime. Projects come and go and sometimes cancelled altogether (and the layoffs begin). Make friends early and exchange contact information when you can because you never know when you'll be the next to go. – less
