I have been working at Think Surgical full-time (More than 3 years)
You can literally write your own ticket at this company. I have to say my experiences have been much better than most people report on this site. I have been given unfettered freedom to follow any avenue I wanted within the company and have had a lot of fun doing so. I can walk into the Dr. Muns office at any time and declare "I have a crazy idea..." . I have found my thoughts did not fall on deaf ears. I have been allowed to pursue my ideas and have had great experiences creating new things for the company. The benefits are good, the atmosphere is stimulating, pay raises are dependent on making serious contributions. That is why I am still hanging in here, besides, I really like my boss and the CEO. A couple of great guys to work with.
If you are a 9-5er, and want to sit in a cube just doing your job climbing the ladder, you're probably not going to be happy here. I think it's why I see so many office politics fails. Some people keep trying to play those games, but in the end, it always seems to backfire on them. This is a place for those who are bold, who take initiative, and are not afraid to admit their mistakes, learn their lessons and move on. It's a small company, and so this is not a place for those used to the typical corporate environment. If you're from that kind of environment, then a fast paced, "you're going to wear many hats" kind of place may not be for you. If you need constant direction, you're likely not going to be happy.
Advice to Management
In truth, I am not management or a CEO. I have seen what management is up against, and in all honesty, I don't think I could do a better job. I see lots of comments coming from those who find it easier to criticize than contribute to solutions. My motto - solutions, not problems.
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Think Surgical (San Jose, CA) in August 2015.
interviewed with them a few months ago. First contacted by HR and asked to do a phone screening. Then phone interview with hiring manager. Then phone interviews with other senior sales managers. Then phone interview with director of HR. Then face to face with hiring manager. Then offer.
