    I have been working at NuVasive


    This is Nuvasive's mantra and it seems to be working for them. The company started in 1999 and is on pace to hit over $750M in revenue this year making them the 3rd largest med device company in the global spine market. Based on the large corporations they compete against this is pretty remarkable.
    It doesn't look like things are slowing down as their stock hit a 52 week high just last week. Lots of companies claim to have a "great culture" but Nuvasive really goes above and beyond to protect their "billion dollar, start-up" vibe. - Fall Festivals, beer gardens, Cheetah Ball, free fruit & vending machines in the break rooms, etc.
    Also, with the size of the company (under 2,000 EEs) there is easy access to leadership and the ability to affect change. Although the size of the company is smaller they still have a global presence and remain competitive with compensation and benefits.


    This is one of those make a negative a positive comment . . . they're looking for positive, smart, passionate problem-solvers to work here. If you're talented and are looking for other talented people to push you to get better this is the place for you. They require a lot from you but at the same time they give a lot back. Think of it as a basketball team competing for a championship - you're going to have to work hard personally to get to the playoffs but you're going to also need other talented people around you to win the championship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing . . . I like the upcoming changes to benefits and how you continue to position the company in the market to succeed. Continue to protect the company culture and never forget it's the people that make the company.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at NuVasive.

    Interview Details

    The whole process was very quick as they needed someone fill the position immediately. HR first contacted me and scheduled a phone interview with the manager the next day. After the phone interview, the manager seemed very interested and wanted to meet with me along with another associate. I met with them 2 days later and the face-to-face went well. They contacted me the next day and asked if I could start the following week.
