I worked at Intuitive Surgical full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great pay. Great growth opportunities.

Cons

Very "clickish"... Reminds me of High school. You have your "social climbers", who try to fit in with the "in crowd". And the mean girls who look down on you and talk about you behind your back..

    Hours required to do the job right
    Being micromanaged beyond your imagination
    Unrealistic quota expectations (at times)
    Poor work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ride your field sales team so hard. You would have more qualified applicants and a stronger sales force if they were treated more appropriately.

    I have been working at Intuitive Surgical full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The engineering staff is super smart and very talented. It is gratifying to know we make surgery less invasive and less traumatic. The problems we solve are difficult and interesting, and everyone works very hard to achieve the common goal.

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly, and the culture is changing. To get any product into the field, a herculean effort is required to satisfy V&V and regulatory requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
