I worked at Cyberonics full-time

Pros

good salary.
good benefits.
Helping people with one terrible disease to get their life back.

Cons

Everyone is terrified of loosing their job; this leads to the most stressed atmosphere anywhere. Everyone is very overworked so *no* team work.
Managers that change their orders so often, they can always report, "I told him..."

    Former Employee - Clinical Engineer in Houston, TX (US)

    I worked at Cyberonics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good benefits with a lot PTOs, pride working with technology that help patients with epilepsy and depression

    Cons

    CTS (Clinical Technical Services) group has very high turn over rate. People come and go within the group (call center and complaint investigators) due to bad management and poor career advancement. If you just graduate from college and desperate for a job to make some money, then feel free to give it a shot., otherwise please carefully consider before joining Cyberonics's CTS, in particular BME major out there. CTS is what I call the road to nowhere. Wanted to know more? leave a comment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more professional development and move people around where they wanted to end up with after years of service to the company

    I have been working at Cyberonics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and ok salary.

    Cons

    The Clinical Engineer position is advertised as a core development position. In reality, the people in this position will NOT get promoted and are continuously under stress due to high workload. The management ask employee to participate in "outside" projects on top off working 50+ hours. Many people with high hope and positive attitude will take on more projects (now working 60+ hours); however, when it comes to transferring, the CTS management opposes such a move. This is partly due to very high turn over of the team. In the past 2 years alone, 11 people have quit, 2 managed to transfer to clinical quality engineer (after being with cyberonics for 3+ years), and 1 person (after 2.5 years) transferred to quality engineering group. This position may be "ok" for a new desperate BME graduate but I highly recommend looking for another position immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the development plan (which is done annually) happen for the CTS members within 12 to 16 months. Also, increase the number of workforce so that the team doesn't hurt when one person quits.
