    I have been working at Nevro full-time (More than a year)


    Nevro is innovative and forward thinking, always looking to grow in a positive way to make their team happy and keep them engaged, they do not fall stagnant. Leadership practices what they preach and hold themselves to the same standards as they do their teams. The work environment is fun and laid back but also hardworking and passionate. This is a company that makes innovative products for their customers and hires passionate people to contribute to that cause of providing patients with the absolute best outcome. Nevro keeps their employees invested in the company mission by offering transparency (clinical data), keeping everyone engaged (the CEO especially) and with benefits/options that make it known your value and hard work are noticed. From my experience, there is a lot of attention to growth and happiness and managers truly care about your career path and getting to know your strengths and weaknesses to help you be your best self and be successful.


    Still a "smaller" company that can have its growing pains, as any company does, but even with that they adapt and do not limit themselves to finding ways to improve and adapt with that growth and change. You'll work hard at Nevro but balance is found and its very rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing, the tone set from above trickles all the way down the ladder and sets the tone for success and hard work.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nevro (Redwood City, CA) in January 2017.


    It was easy. I only had 5 interviews in one day. Two were phone interviews and 3 were in person interviews. But I did start out as a Temp to perm which I think is much better that way you know if you work out and or if you like the atmosphere and commute.
