I have been working at MAKO Surgical

Pros

Be a part of the fastest growing company in North America (Deloitte Fast 500 2011). MAKO offers a competitive salary, great PTO (paid time off) offering, competive benefits (employee stock purchase program, 401K, medical, yearly bonus opportunity for all), comprehensive yearly review of performance.

Location, location, location......it's February and 80 degrees outside.....

Cons

With the rampant growth comes a fair share of stress. However, having come from other industries that are constantly downsizing (layoffs), the stress of growth is refreshing and stable. I may have to work as hard as 2 people but it's not because my friend was just laid off....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just keep this bullet train on its track and we'll be sitting alongside the likes of Biomet, Stryker, Zimmer, DePuy, and Smith & Nephew in less than a decade. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this? Anyone? .....

    I have been working at MAKO Surgical

    Pros

    better than unemployment. great technology. good corporate location. good short term investment of their stock. part of their facility is nice, part of office environment is very old

    Cons

    HORRIBLE senior management. All are ex-GE guys, who couldn't cut it there. They know NOTHING about the surgical implant piece of their business. They want 60+ hours a week work out of you. NO support what so ever. Very sleazy environment. Will remind you of a used car lot dealership mentality.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO
