Clinical Research Coordinator (Former Employee) says

"Cordis was orginially at Johnson & Johnson Company. J&J sold Cordis in 2015 to Cardinal Health, and the company went down hill from there. First they moved us from Fremont to West Milpitas, and most people's commute became an instant nightmare. Plus the Management changed and did a full turn. I was originally a Clinical Research Coordinator when we were under J&J, but when the sale occurred they did not have that job title, so I was thrown into another pot "Scientist II" which was nothing like what I did. My VP and Manager were going to change my description, but the VP went on Maternity leave and the Manager left for another job. I was then put under the Medical Director who had no clue how to manage people, and was unwilling to work with me and not interested in making any changes to my description. I left as soon as the opportunity arose to do so. Cons: everything"

"le country manager était inexpérimenté dans le secteur de la cardiologie interventionnelle et impose des instructions qui ont pousser vers l'échec malgré l'importance de J&J et Cordis dans le monde. Cons: direction très passive"

Operator (Former Employee) says

"One day on the production line was to arrive early, do the cleaning of the area, disinfect, make the configuration of the equipment, check the status of the pending lots and verify the priorities of the day, to begin the tasks. Each work station had its qualities and characteristics, and it had to have been executed to carry out the task just like each of the work stations. The workplace was a moment in which production and delivery were required in the performance of the tasks that caused errors in the process. The hardest part in itself was what was required to perform tasks at the last minute when it could have been prevented. The most successful part in which the product that was made was to save lives and improve the quality of life of patients, in addition to an orderly lifestyle, due to the continuous use of procedures, makes our daily life also follow orders for a desired result."

Losing great employees - at least 1/week."

"I worked at Cordis full-time for more than a year Cons: I don't want to talk much of the cons here. Just tell one of my stories is enough to give you a flavor of who they are. I had a pending business expense in my corporate credit card when I resigned from Cordis. It was an approved expense in Concur. I told HR/manager during my exit interview on my last day. They made sure of me they would take care of it. Fast forward three months later, I got a bill from America Express of of that expense plus two times delinquency fee. I immediately reached out to Cordis to resolve this issue as I really worry it would affect my credit score. A lot of back and forth. Long story short, they didn't pay off the whole bill just a part of it. Fast forward another 2 months there was still $200 late fee in the balance, but Cordis refused to pay off the rest of the balance. Also claiming it is my problem. In the beginning I was so angry so that I consulted attoney and thought of suing them for this. But it really doesn't worth another moment of my attention so I paid it off myself. Finally I have a clean cut with this company . Please dont ruin yourself or your credit score to work here. Love yourself !"

"I worked at Cordis full-time Cons: This is a very depressing work environment. Please read this review and several others that have commented on the fact that there are 3-5 people leaving per week due to the toxic environment. Because everyone is depressed and unmotivated, this place will also leave you feeling depressed when you leave work. The review with 5 stars is upper management desperate to make this place look good in order to get new hires. There is absolute no direction on what you are supposed to be doing and no support by management whatsoever. You will never move up and even when they promise you that you will be moving up, they come up empty handed with more lies. The President of Cordis does not interact with anyone below him (except the VP of Communications). Several VPs have even left the company which says a lot. But since sales are low due to zero innovation and zero spend on R&D plus several recalls on products, they are okay with all the open headcount because they need it to survive. Ever wonder why J&J decided to sell Cordis? Because they were losing money with the ridiculous manufacturing processes. There is no team work as manufacturing does not communicate with Sales and vise versa. Cordis is constantly over producing then scrapping. There is no team work at the top so there is none at the bottom. This is a dying company. Cardinal Health can continue to buy more companies to cover up their mistakes."

"I worked at Cordis full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Too many down sizes and turnover is constant. A lot of questionable decisions made all across the board. Management not very open in explaining critical decisions they made."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at Cordis full-time Cons: No real growth within company. No new products. Very few managers who actually have management skills. Procedures lack synergy. People are more concerned with protecting themselves than getting the job done. Departments are not cohesive and this prevents projects from being completed in a timely manner."
