PRODUCT VERIFICATION TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 12 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.
Marketing (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 11 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.
Associate Stitcher (Former Employee) – Draper, UT – 3 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.
Onsite nurse, cafeteria, & gym w/showers
Noisy workplace, rigidly monitored; not for those with anxiety or sensory disorders
Labeling Graphic Specialist (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 22 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.
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – 19 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 .
HVAC Technician (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – 8 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.
QA Inspector (Current Employee) – Draper, UT 84020 – 3 December 2018
great place to work, good diversity. It's simply awesome there. I've only been work there for almost a month and I'm falling in love already. I have had people who's been working there for quite a while now
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.
