    Pros

    This is a new field, with lots of challenges in many areas. The right answers are being figured out now, and working at Intuitive Surgical all of us get to be a part of that. It's by far the most talented and motivated group of people I've ever worked with, and everyone can see the impact of their work on the product, and the patients who are treated with it. It's a very ethical and data-driven place to work; there's relatively little drama about even major decisions, and though decisions don't always go the way I think they should, I do feel that I've got a say in them and that my voice is heard.

    Cons

    There's only one I see: there's nowhere to hide. If you're the kind of person who just wants to coast in a job, this is not the place for you. Everyone is given a lot of individual responsibility, which is part of the philosophy of small, nimble product teams.

    Advice to Management

    I'm pretty sure there's nothing I can add that would be helpful; Lonnie, now Gary, and the rest of the senior management is doing a fine job. As we grow, keeping the focus on why we're here and what we're trying to do will continue to be important to keeping all of us pulling in the same direction.
