    Approves of CEO

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


    Sirtex has a very unique and life changing oncology product, with current endeavors to expand the portfolio with product lines that would be supplemental to our bag. This is a company experiencing lots of growth, and is an environment in which I can say after celebrating my one year anniversary, that collaboration and individual contributions are attributes that our company values, allowing for employees to have real world impact on patient success and advocacy.


    There are many changes in regulation occurring within the industry, that will require some remediation work in order to comply with new law i.e. EU MDR, OUS regulations etc. However, this is a pressure point/growing pain that the entire industry is feeling right now.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in continuous research and development efforts to aid in our current trajectory of innovation.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sirtex Medical (Austin, TX) in March 2015.


    They tell you what you want to hear but all changes in 6 months! They all want to meet you in person but they don't make it easy. After you accept the homer, they pressured me to resign from my job fast.
