Benefits Philosophy

When you join Intuitive, you become part of a passionately committed team that is working hard to advance the frontiers of minimally invasive surgery. As a world-class innovator, our benefits are an important part of our Total Rewards Package. Intuitive Surgical invests in top-tier benefits that are competitive within our industry and well above national average.

In 2014, our health plan and our Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) both ranked #1 in employer-provided value according to the Towers Watson High Tech BENVAL ® Survey of Employee Benefits – ahead of 17 selected companies renowned for their benefits, including Google, Facebook, Roche/Genentech, and Johnson & Johnson.

While the specifics of our offerings differ by country, our offerings are competitive, comprehensive and inclusive:

  • Shared Success. Simply put, we are a high-growth company where equity and ownership matter. Through competitive programs like our ESPP, corporate incentive bonus plan, patent bonus program and employee referral program, we all share in our mutual success.
  • Soar to New Heights. Reimbursement for classes and degree programs that enhance your skills and value (up to 50% of tuition up to $15,000 per calendar year).
  • Community Connections. Wellness initiatives, community volunteerism and giving, including the American Heart Association and American Red Cross, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) outreach, and more, so many ways to give, care and connect.
  • Time Off. A generous vacation and holiday schedule, paid new parent leave, vacation cash out, as well as sick time when you need it, are just a few of the ways we ensure our team has time to attend to all that matters in their lives.
  • Travel Worry-Free. Travel insurance and emergency assistance while traveling on company business, including between your residence and regular work site.

    401(k) matching is pretty limited, but the ESPP program is outstanding (and honestly probably worth quite a bit more than a traditional 401(k) program). Medical/Dental/Vision plans are excellent and reasonably priced. PTO is pretty good too (3 weeks to start) and increases each year at the company.

    Great health insurance, other perks include discounts on anything from movie tickets to gym to at work lunches. Pretty miserable 401k.

    Work-Live Balance can be obtained and sustained. Remote Office location in San Francisco is a class set up.

    The benefits package at Intuitive is great. The medical benefits are great. I wish they matched more on the 401k.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Manager in Sunnyvale, California

    4 weeks of minimum vacation needed Birthday Off needed If would be great if they can match 50% of Facebook vacation policy as listed Facebook employees will have up to 20 days paid leave to grieve an immediate family member, up to 10 days to grieve an extended family member, and will be able to take up to six weeks of paid leave to care for a sick relative,” Sandberg writes. “We’re also introducing paid family sick time – three days to take care of a family member with a short-term illness, like a child with the flu.”

    The medical, dental and vision are really great!

    Intuitive surgical offers a comprehensive benefits package including paternity leave, 401k, health and life insurance, disability insurance, health savings account and paid vacation.

  • Sep 11, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in San Jose, California

    ESPP is the best benefit by far.

  • May 30, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Sunnyvale, California

    Best things are the Health and Employee Benefits, as well as the Equity and ESPP programs. The 401k Matching is minuscule, which limits opportunities to balance a retirement portfolio beyond company stock

  • May 25, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former IT Manager in Sunnyvale, California

    Health insurance, 401k, Time off, Stock options. Benefits were great.
