Production Worker (Former Employee) says"Training is a complete joke! Cons: Management, Pay is horrible, trainers are even worse than managers!"
Assembler (Former Employee) says"First off, they make you think you're going to work 4 10 hour work days but you really wont, they lied to me and i pretty much ended up working 50 hours a week every week. Their training is a joke they pretty much throw you in there and expect you be as fast as the people who've been working there for 10 plus years and blame you for making mistakes and being slow. Management makes promises they wont keep and your "team" will most likely be a bunch of old hags who are depressed at their job and will try to insult you and make you depressed too for being a newbie. I pretty much got let go for taking some time off for being with my fiance at the hospital and not being able to keep up with others , so dont waste your time applying here unless you want to be miserable"
Ex dipendente (Former Employee) says"Opinioni nettamente contrapposte paragonando vecchio e nuovo management dell'azienda. Cons: Rappresentanze sindacali che tutelano sè stesse anzichè i lavoratori, struttura e strumenti obsoleti"

CLINICAL QUALITY ENGINEER (Former Employee) says"This company will lead you to believe that when you are hired, there are so many benefits, which include development, especially if you are straight out of college. They then require that you complete work of up to 2-3 persons within a time period unrealistic to many, especially if you have other commitments, like a family or friends. Corporate will tell you that they do not have funds to hire more people and make you feel guilty for not working hard enough. I would avoid working for the company as it will suck you dry and create issues with your home life and health if you are there long enough. Also, you cannot rely on HR to help you as they will quickly communicate what is said to be a confidential conversation to the persons you report or ask for guidance on."
Reliability Engineer, Cyberonics (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed working on A wonderful product that truly helps people, developed by hardworking smart people.

Undisclosed (Current Employee) says"There has been a culture shift over the past 2 years where executive leadership says they are invested in an engaging and employee-centric culture however their actions result in the exact opposite. Regardless of role or function, there is negativity that is pervasive across the organization."

Manager (Former Employee) says"Typical day will be long and difficult to manage. You can absolutely learn a ton but it will need to be self-directed. First line management are not provided even the most basic manager 101 training. Lots of complaints about upper leadership. Unrealistic targets for sales people. Cons: benefits are weak"

Material Handler (Former Employee) says"Learned a lot of different trades, work ethics, met a lot of different types of people. Had a steady job through out the years, moving to different areas and different jobs within the company. Learned a lot about cardiovascular health care, dialysis health care. Learned how work in assembly, production, auditing procedures, manufacturing, procedures, packing out product to be ready to ship out, learned how to look for defects in product, machine operations, set up technician experience in plastic extruder machines, and how to operate a forklift, and warehouse work in receiving and shipping areas. Cons: Short break, Short Lunches"

Engineer III (Current Employee) says"Continued reviewing processes and meetings, there are tenured people but minimal potential for growth. The culture seem hampering at least in my department. Management has a hands off approach which is fine but could cause problems if your not self motivated."

Annoymous (Former Employee) says"Following merger to form LivaNova, the multiple franchises and global locations are creating a challenge for upper management. Focus is more on standardizing processes for all work locations and less on what works best for individual sites. Employees are then required to work with the resulting process."
