I worked at Penumbra

Pros

great device design and methodology, people are friendly from top management to assembly workers

Cons

higher management doesn't like to see employees with massive growth potential. they like to hire talented individuals from competitors, pay low, give tiny amounts of shares upon hiring, bonuses at the time were non-existent and they try their hardest to keep your career stagnant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mr. CEO and fellow upper management, ease off on the crony system and form your own opinions of your employees - hearsay doesn't become you.

    I have been working at Penumbra full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people and great feeling to be helping improve lives for stroke and aneurysm patients

    Cons

    Fast paced. Lots of new products, so always needing to learn how to build new products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue sharing patient stories. Seems like executives get it, especially #2 guy, a VP who came from selling the devices in the field, he is always walking around in clean room explaining the products to doctors and speaking at pump meetings with patient videos. Executives do seem to care about the workers.
