    I have been working at Advanced Bionics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The products are great and there are many new projects in the pipeline. Good company values and culture (patient first). Company is growing fast. There are company events where you get to hear patient's experiences with AB's products.

    Cons

    No perks (no water fountain, only one cafeteria, no break room), benefits could be better, cubicles not ideal for teamwork, no formal career training/coaching/mentorship, building is getting too small due to company growth

    Mechanical engineering intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Advanced Bionics

    Pros

    Great focus on making sure all employees feel a sense of purpose and keeping communication open between everyone in the company. Everyone from factory workers to engineers to executives shared in all-company lunch events (In-n-Out truck, for example) every few weeks. Customers came in often to speak to everybody about their experience with our product, and told stories of how our product changed their lives. Great to keep track of why you do what you do, to remember why doing quality work is so important, and to make the customer experience part of our institutional knowledge.

    The work at Advanced Bionics is really exciting and on the cutting edge, so there's lots of be excited about.

    Cons

    As with any medical company, AB is subject to the highest form of regulation: the FAA. This means AB moves more slowly on everything than companies in other (less regulated) industries.

    Pros

    Very talented co-workers, extremely sharp technical staff. An interesting, challenging and worthwhile product that helps people.

    Cons

    Ask for support and you usually get ignored. Review system is a joke. Getting accurate and consistent answers to your questions is too difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously communicate with your employees more. You may also want to provide more than a ping-pong table for employee activities.

    Pros

    Intend of the products are great, helping the deaf to hear. Something you can be proud of. Always in the cutting edge.

    Cons

    New upper management from Swiss is in total disarray at the moment. I wish it will get better soon. Otherwise, they may have to sell the company (again).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the rope faster, don't make mistakes.
