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

Hand sew onto heart (Former Employee) –  Changi North Crescent15 May 2017
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
3 times rest include Lunch break for 1 hour and another 2 is 15 minutes.

Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Draper, UT5 May 2017
This job is just like any other medical assembly company. You work a lot of hours for little pay and are required to work a high amount of mandatory overtime.

Amazing workplace and benefits
Logistics Assistant (Former Employee) –  Singapore24 February 2017
I have learned a lot about time management.
It is a manufacturing company doing heart valves.
Coordinating orders and manufacturing is really challenging.
That is because when I first joined, the company has just moved to its office in Changi North.A big change from their office in Ubi Techpark. Therefore there is minimal sewers from the production team that could produce a QA approved valves. During that time we have to work closely with the production team leader as well as QA.
Management is good, the appraisal is being done openly. We know where we have excel and otherwise. We are encouraged to move forward and make changes for better results.
Pros
Family occasions, free lunches during festive season
Cons
Low salary

Growing company distant from its manufacturing drones
Heart Valve Assembler (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA21 February 2017
Very strict about attendance; will work you to the bone with overtime; was an interesting experience but working on tiny devices under a microscope is not for everyone. Not a bad job if you can stand it as the benefits and salary+overtime are great.
Pros
Lots of employee benefits, good income, opportunities for advancement and permanent position
Cons
Soul-sucking manufacturing work, training is abysmal, poor communication in management
