Sonicare: Lots of potential, but Sr. Mgt and people don't get it..
Product Manager (Former Employee), Bothell, WAOctober 11, 2014
Pros: great opportunity to work on global programs and learn several lines of business
Cons: horrendous employee morale, culture reinforces bad / negative behaviors, lack of accountability and ownership by most employees, lack of aligned strategic vision by sr mgt, lack of leading by example by sr. leadership team
On an individual basis, work related to the job can be very rewarding. The big issue is that the overall business is very disjointed when it comes to thinking and acting strategically. Their is very little alignment between groups and unless you drive things yourself, you cannot expect your counterparts to come through. Many only know what they know – more... and want to "stay in their lane." The ability to think holistically and strategically is not possessed by many there. In fact, it feels more like a factory than an innovation hub or center of excellence, and many like it that way.

In the end, it's a great opportunity to work within a global framework - whether with internal stakeholders or suppliers, and you have the opportunity to really learn a lot about how to run a business. In some sense, with the organization being such a small unit, you almost get to operate as a "mini GM" and make important decisions that have a big impact to the product and/or program.

A disappointing part of the job entails obtaining buy-in from all of the stakeholders within the organization. Many have their own agenda and often times it feels like herding cats to get things done. Unless you're truly assertive things will not get done, and you should expect to be disappointed even when you feel/think there's alignment on a game plan. The truly hard part of the job is Sr. Mgt's role in the dysfunctionality that presently exists - many establish standards and expectations that they themselves don't adhere to. Furthermore, a vast majority of the leadership team lack the true strategic vision and ability to genuinely rally the troops. This may be in part to them not leading by example.

In general, over the past several years the retention rate of employees has been horrendous and I attribute this to the bad employee morale coupled with Sr. Mgt's tactics of employing European values on an American workforce. – less

Harassment on Steroids
Technical Writer (Former Employee), Highland HeightsSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: paid on time
Cons: harassment is a way of life.
Due to management indecision and vacations I started three weeks later than originally plan. Being misled about the start date resulted in my suspending my job search. My bad.

Once I arrived in late July promises of training turned out to be nonsense. In addition to no training there is not objective standard for measuring performance, process for – more... setting deadlines or method of estimating how long a job should take.

Every job is to be done yesterday and ASAP. Every day someone showed up four or five times, after refusing to set a deadline or estimate the size of the job, to ask "are you done yet." I felt like I was driving a three year old to an amusement park "Are we there yet. Are we there yet. Are we there yet."

The best part, to stick with their theme of unprofessionalism and immaturity, was being sent to human resources where we were lecture on how to proceed if someone ran around the offices shooting us. After the active shooter training I went back my cube sat down to face my computer monitor with my back to the aisle behind me.

As I sat with my back to the aisle a laser light, looked like an aiming device for a gun, played across the bulletin board behind the monitor and across myself and a co-worker. After the training on shooters seeing the laser momentarily had me convinced I was going to be shot. The in house co-worker who played the prank thought it was hilarious. The same co-worker, I was a temporary technical writer, hinted around that I should buy her a birthday present. My in house leader confirmed that the birthday present hints were not a joke.

If you like rude and crude, there swearing and discussion of watching x rated movies on the job, this is the place to work. – less
