A very good company but poor department management
Sr Facilities Generalist (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CA27 March 2019
Edwards Lifesciences is a very good stable company but you need to ask from the beginning the salary or income that you think you deserve. There’s no career advancement in our department. If you start in an entry level or fresh graduate then maybe you can stay all your career life with the company. People stay until their retirement age because that’s their first job and learn d from there. But if you’re an experienced, skilled and knowledgeable in your expertise. You need to asked in advanced the income you deserve in the next five (5) years
Pros
Stable company
Cons
No advancement

Very fast-paced environment

Edwards is a very dynamic company. Products are interesting, important, and life-saving. This company is a good choice for individuals who are equally driven and willing to put it long hours and weekends for long periods of time to meet company goals. High performers are rewarded.
Pros
Nice campus and special events - 'Patient Day', etc.
Cons
Work-Life Balance is lacking in many departments, People work long hours and don't take vacation because of the work pace.

PRODUCT VERIFICATION TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA12 February 2019
Don't hire new grads as manager due to lack of experience and guidance to those that have done the work and knows what they are doing. Manager should also be open minded to ideas that are put in from the team and not just one specific person again it goes in saying of hiring someone with experience.

Horrible Culture
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA11 February 2019
Edwards is an old-fashioned company that tries to be like innovative companies but simply is not. The management style is from the 60s or so. The culture is close to 100% political with very little consideration for performance or actual leadership. Leadership is defined by loyalty and head-nodding. Managers have no accountability for their performance as there is no safe feedback mechanism for the people they try to manage - hence the 60s reference above.
Pros
Decent salaries
Cons
Very provincial mindset throughout

Great Job for the Able-Bodied
Associate Stitcher (Former Employee) –  Draper, UT3 February 2019
This job would have been great if not for my health issues and the hour-long commute. The shift can be strenuous, 10 1/2 hours Monday through Thursday, with occasional overtime opportunities.

Be prepared to work hard. The tasks are sometimes difficult to master, but frequent breaks are provided, with a regimen of ergonomic stretches to prevent muscle strain from repetitive motion. The pay is competitive, and the company values its employees' health and well-being.

Mastery of English is not a requirement; most supervisors and line leads are multi-lingual, as are some of the engineers.
Pros
Onsite nurse, cafeteria, & gym w/showers
Cons
Noisy workplace, rigidly monitored; not for those with anxiety or sensory disorders

Secure, but Slow Advancement
Employee (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CA31 January 2019
Wages are semi-competitive. Benefits are good compared to some other companies. Advancement can take a long time depending on what department you work in.

Heart valve sewer (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA20 January 2019
Work started out with cleaning from head to toe and suiting up in a clean suit. Sewing heart valves is a bit stressful and a lot of skills with your finger needs to be in play.

Graphic Labeling is a horrible job
Labeling Graphic Specialist (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA22 December 2018
Doing graphics in the labeling department is a terrible job.
Every mistake is recorded. And a mistake can be forgetting to make a letter bold instead of regular type. A lot of the files you work on will be 25 page "IFUs" filled with 24 different languages in 7 point type. If an accent is tilted the wrong way - that's an error. If a portion of a line in a full page graph is .5pt instead of 1pt that's an error.
And remember they chart every error while expecting you work to be pretty much error free.
And you better work quick because your co-designers will be monitoring your speed and reporting if you are not up to their speed.
It's a cut throat department with over 2/3 turn over rate. I warn you - this place is a nightmare.
Pros
None
Cons
Walking in the door.

Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CA19 December 2018
there are diversity of people working there but no opportunities for all of them to get promoted, plus senior employees believe they are the owner of the company and they don't help you at least you are ASIA, yes there is a lot discrimination agains to other culture in terms of team work and management know about it but they ignore because all they care is about productivity and it doesn't matter about issues on the floor, also if you do not play their games then you are out .

Working for Edwards Lifesciences was the best experience I obtained. Had the pleasure of meeting some great people, Edwards is employee first, it values it's employee force. Great place to work.
Cons
The language barrier where I was stationed, along with the fact I was away from family was the only downside to my job.

Fast past and stressful
HVAC Technician (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CA8 December 2018
Fast past they care more of the quantity of heart valves even when all they rave about is taking the time and to do quality work but will give you a certain amount of time to sew a valve. They will work your hands hard holding this small valve for 6 hours and 30 minutes. Arthritis is a given not including youre seated that whole Time in a hunches over position looking into a microscope. Inhuman place to work and it seems they keep it staffed with Asians because let’s face it they are willing to work through the situation. Clueless management.
