    I have been working at Verathon full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    A lot of the lower level employees are kind and friendly. Medical benefits are not bad

    Cons

    Pay is low for the type of work and specialty needed to do the work. Expect to be micromanaged. And that micromanagement comes from the top. Management will also make fun of people and put people down.

    Advice to Management

    Other members of management need to speak out against those who are treating others badly.

    Pros

    Awesome place to get experience and grow your career. Verathon promotes from within and will reward high preforming employees with opportunities. Good pay, fun perks and company culture. Executive leadership team listens to their employee's and delivers solutions. Healthy work life balance. Great products that make an impact.

    Cons

    Dated building (undergoing a huge remodel so this will be fixed soon!).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - its working!

    Pros

    Nice people. Smart people. Relaxed atmosphere. Flexibility. Interesting and varied projects. Upcoming product releases look exiting. Very transparent management. I have never been in a company where all the plans and numbers are shared so freely.

    Cons

    None so far. The old, tired building is being remodeled this year and looks to be very nice.

    I worked at Verathon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Team building survived beyond Verathon, great customers

    Cons

    Horrific mamagement, atmosphere of fear, ignorance and mediocrity rewarded, misogynism, neither customers nor quality of product valued, HR department is a joke. No one trusts them.

    Advice to Management

    Patronizing attitude and humble bragging about your Harvard MBA is offputting. We're not fools and many of us have degrees we don't bring up at every company meeting. These clowns work at different companies together (Abbott for instance) then bring each other on.

    I have been working at Verathon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    If you don't want to work hard or develop your career, this is as good a place as any. Outside Sales has good market share.

    Cons

    "The running joke around here is your company never does XXXX right" is actually a frequent saying from Verathon's customers and it's embarrassing. No one knows how anything gets done because of all lost knowledge when people quit. From top to bottom the majority people at HQ have been employed for less than 2 years. Since the beginning of 2018 over 90 people have left the company. Here's why: The culture is toxic...

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP. A cheap remodel, a set of 'values' and a new system isn't going to retain talent. Understand and organize your processes. Recognize your key contributors before they jump ship. Pay a market standard wage. Stop lying about deadlines in your employee meetings.

    Pros

    None really. Made some good friends.

    Cons

    Management was a joke. They formed inappropriate relationships with their direct reports, people were afraid to go to HR - HR was never a help...worst HR department I ever encountered. Extremely high turnover and extra work was always dumped onto employees when people left. Extremely political. No support from management when issues would come up.

    Advice to Management

    Really take the time and listen to employees. Support them. Don't tolerate bad behavior.

    I have been working at Verathon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interviewers unanimously showed excitement about company direction Positively viewed by friends & former coworkers that were recently hired Focused on building company culture after some high turnover years Offers meaningful work and ability to make an impact on the world

    Cons

    Interview process stretched over several months (glad I waited) Pace of development feels much different in such a highly regulated industry

    Advice to Management

    Continue driving positive changes that have started

    Pros

    Verathon's products are inspiring and allow a certain level of pride for employees. Many employees are hard workers and go the extra mile to achieve lofty goals.

    Cons

    Management needs a wake up call. RETAIN YOUR TALENTED EMPLOYEES!!! Verahton's retention levels are absolutely atrocious and that has been the norm for several years now. Talented employees are overworked, underappreciated and that leads directly to their attrition levels. Verathon's executive leadership team needs to find a way to listen to the employees without the manager's filter to see what is really going on...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees directly. Identify the REAL contributors to the company and pick their brains about what Verathon really needs. STOP allowing managers to hire friends of theirs without interviewing other candidates that may be better qualified. This is a huge cancer that only creates disgruntled employees.
