    I worked at Thoratec full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work with medical professionals who care.

    Cons

    They keep getting bought out by other companies.

    Advice to Management

    You're "cyberdyne". Keep recreating organs and go for it.

    Interview

    There was no real interview. Our engineering group was acquired through a business takeover and the employees were hired automatically. A formal interview process would probably have been better so that the prospective employee can have a glimpse at his/hers new employer's thinking and culture before automatically rolling over into the new company.
