    Has been a great company to work for to gain experience, but it is time to move on.

    I have been working at Amedica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment, newer building, high regard for management.

    Cons

    Crappy pay, recent downsizing has double or tripled my responsibilities with no pay increase, poor layout of office space. Start-up company who spends more than they make.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees you value them and stop using scare tactics... and tell the HR director to stop flirting with all the younger females in the company!

    I worked at Amedica

    Pros

    Nice building. Interesting product. Room to expand.

    Cons

    Management had burned through millions of dollars with not much to show. It takes them years to release a product due to overly burdensome internal procedures. They spend hours in meetings and cannot make simple decisions to release products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late. Ship is sinking. Could have beed a great company if manager correctly.

    Be careful, Amedica is not a good place to work. People are discriminated against everyday!

    I have been working at Amedica

    Pros

    Good pay, that's about it.

    Cons

    Everything besides the pay. As a senior manager in Salt Lake City I tell new employees to get out early on because it only gets worse. The HR Dept lacks integrity and my other senior management peers are also unhappy. We are all looking to make a move, just biding our time until something better comes along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like Ben, he just has surrounded himself with poor leadership.
