I have been working at NuVasive full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great culture in a great industry (not to mention in a great city)!

The management and employees truly care about improving peoples' lives. They always put the patient first and insist on high levels of performance.

This is an incredibly intelligent and hard working group of people dedicated to changing surgery and improving patient outcomes. This company creates some truly innovative and industry changing products that every employee can be proud of.

Being around ambitious and altruistic people is invigorating and makes you want to work harder to make the world a better place.

They never lose site of their goals and sense of purpose: improve spine surgery.

Lot's of opportunities to get involved with philanthropy and community outreach.

Cons

Long hours are required of certain groups. This is not the place for you if you cannot handle high pressure and high performance demands.

As the company grows some of the culture is being lost. Bureaucracy is creeping into the company and the nimble, fast paced, start-up mentality is diminishing.

Only certain charities (that further the companies interests) are supported by management.

There is little room for political dissent if you want to further your career here.

Some people can take the culture a little too far and fail to realize their own shortcomings. At times, the culture can be used as a weapon and can form cliques.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to continue to grow and lead the industry in innovative and high quality products you have to reinvest in your company, your physical assets, and your people. Improve your internal systems and processes, reduce and disincentivize bureaucracy, and keep your share-owners (employees) as your number one priority. Keep an outside-in approach vs. an inside-out approach: what do your customers need and how do we satisfy them vs. this is what we have so take it or leave it.
