    I have been working at Alphatec Spine full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are very hard working and care about patients and making Alphatec profitable. Good work environment until now, Sailor CEO really knew the importance of having happy employees and they loved him for that, could have been more business like but was retiring so how can you blame him, plus he was fun which makes people want to work hard rather than feeling like they have to work hard. High technology, the new products are awesome, have excellent potential to beat competition at all levels, customers love the new products because they make the customers job easier. Great investment potential if Alphatec is in for the long haul producing high quality products that are well tested and thought out.

    Cons

    New CEO is no good. Bad fit for this company and seems to have checkered past. Does not seem to respect the employees. Says he cares but actions speak louder than words. Operations has a ton of potential but are nothing more than yes men. Some managers are tallented but there seems to be no substance in the leadership. They seem to spend their time in CYA mode and making room for even more inexperienced managers whom are their friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire experienced people not your friends who don't know spine med device and manufacturing. Don't take the cheap route, Alphatec has the potential to go far just trust the employees to get us there slow and steady the right way not the quick flip way.
