I have been working at MAKO Surgical

Pros

Young growing company...with all the growing pains you might expect. Fast paced "no sympathy" work environment. Lots of opportunity to work hard develop new products.

Cons

Good luck figuring out how to get promoted. Poor communication between management and non-management. Political and "CYA" culture. Poor recognition. Lack of support where needed. No motivation for continued hard work. Dismal work/life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees and address their needs. Be realistic about things.

    I worked at MAKO Surgical full-time

    Pros

    Lots of great people at the corporate headquarters. Very driven culture, very smart employees, trying to transform the orthopedic industry.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons, think culture varied based on department. Very fast paced environment. It is constantly busy, you have to have the energy and bandwith to go go go!

    I worked at MAKO Surgical full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great technology, products, people & work ethic. Was a good place early on when growth continued & opportunities were flush.

    Cons

    Executive Leadership (or lack there of), Executive greed! No removal of key Sr / executive non performers stalled growth and inability to "cross the chasm".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get your rewards through motivation and leadership of your teams & organizations to do the right thing - not by manipulating forward looking statements to pop stock value. Also executives live by the "do as I say not as I do" motto!
