Pros

Majority of leadership has a longer term, realistic view of the environment - more so than other silicon valley companies I've been at (high tech hardware/software/cap equip). Very purposeful with bringing in new talent that fits into the culture. Aware of the pitfalls of being a successful company and actively manages to mitigate.

Cons

Pace is very fast and always increasing. Some people find it difficult to achieve effective work-life balance. Still some silo'd thinking, and as the company continues to grow and get more complex, this will be a challenge

    Great product, ethical company, but much of middle management is incompetent. Employees are commodities.

    Pros

    Excellent innovation, great product, strong growth, exemplary executive leadership.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for career development, advancement. A lot of middle managers are incompetent and apathetic and company has grown too fast to recognize or rectify this. The culture seems to frown upon recognizing accomplishments or providing any affirmation at all, and salaries are often not in line with those of other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Get review data on managers, and clean house... or a lot of great people are going to leave.

    I have been working at Intuitive Surgical as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of employee focused events, they have constant meetings to generate feedback from the employees as well as explain to them how their work impacts society. I would consider the pay to be pretty good and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Normal challenges that arise when working in a larger company.
