Sr. Training Manager, Corporate Quality (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 12 November 2018
Terrible place to work. Management is clueless. There is no strategy or planning. The company still acts as if it is a little shop.It is not. No coordination between global sites. People jump over each other to get promotions.Communication between management and employees is nonexistent.
Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – 18 October 2018
I would be fulfilling the company's purchase orders daily, yet making sure that those orders were compliant with the active contracts we had with the vendors.
I was fortunate enough to work with a well-coordinated team that continuously reaches goals in a timely manner, lead by my director who showed me how to excel at my position. He was someone I got along with well, but fair and straight-to-the-point when it was time to get things done.
The hardest part of the job was during the last month of the year, when all departments were sending me their final rushes of purchase orders to use up their remaining budgets and having to fulfill those orders before the year was over. I usually would have to work overtime on most days in that month.
The part I enjoyed the most was working with a team that allowed me to be a part of something bigger than myself. I would consistently work with my team to make sure those purchase orders are processed on time and done correctly.

Sr Receiving Quality Inspector (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA 92614 – 9 September 2018
Edward Good company, good culture, Good work Working at Edwards Lifesciences I was able to meet many new people and interact with people from different cultures. It was an environment where people got along great and would become friends easily. It was a low-stress job with repetitive tasks that were simple to complete. This is a serious and scientific workplace, everything is very professional. I learned a lot here. I learned how to work in groups, I learned how to create the best work. And how to solve the trouble when working
Manager (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – 3 September 2018
Well if your idea of a fun working environment is an unspoken Game of Thrones political culture and unlimited working hours, then EW is for you! For every decent director, there are 9 others who are more interested in their own career advancement and think nothing of throwing people under the bus. I can only comment on their corporate headquarters in Irvine.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 31 August 2018
It all depends on the department and manager. This can be a great place to work that promotes innovation or some place where team work and innovation don't matter. Pay was below par and advancement unlikely.

Certified Heart Valve Assembler (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 10 August 2018
While I enjoyed the people I worked with there, Edwards LifeSciences' manufacturing employees are often stressed out to their physical limits and beyond. Edwards management continues to push the heart valve assembler workers to be more efficient to the point where they receive injuries to their hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, and back pain. Most of heart valve assemblers are older Vietnamese, Cambodians and Hispanic who are new to this country, lack formal education, ignorant of worker's rights, are often afraid to report of pain they have acquired due to work overload. There are stories where an assembler hurt herself so bad where she couldn't lift up her shoulder. Only then will she report her pain. Heart valve assemblers should not be treated like a modern day slave by a so called "world class company" such as Edwards LifeSciences.
