I worked at Cyberonics full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

CYBX has great benefits through their provider. 4 weeks of vacation was definitely a plus along with a good hearted CEO.

Cons

*Work environment was very hostile in CTS (always competition to be #1).
*Work ethics were low due to new hires and competition to move to a better department and higher pay.
*Poor senior management and always looking to blame individuals for poor metrics.
*Very high turn over rate due to low advancement opportunities. (Seen plenty in my years within the company)
*Work was about 10 hour days with no paid OT
*CTS department always understaffed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

*Advice to hire management based on education rather than seniority in the company. Changes and new ideas are always a good thing.
*Additional training to management in regards to "managing individuals"

    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..."

    I worked at Cyberonics full-time for more than a 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
