    I have been working at Align Technology full-time

    Pros

    The product is truly fantastic, easy to believe in, and makes people's lives better. The culture is awesome. Tons of smart people who are also fun to be around. Everyone around me is passionate and it's continuing to evolve in great ways. They're investing more and more in the employees. Communication is great, especially for a global company where it can sometimes be difficult.

    Cons

    The company is in hyper-growth so there's some pretty natural hurdles ahead. I think things are going in the right direction. We could probably do a better job with our Align Technology brand name, although familiar with Invisalign and iTero, not a lot of people are familiar with Align Technology.

    Advice to Management

    Let's get it.

    Pros

    The culture is great, everyone so awesome to work with, they are a family friendly company. They will hear your suggestions and take them into account. The culture is global and very diverse. They listen to the reviews of others who interview at Align and work at Align and make adjustments to make it an even better place to work. We are all on one mission and that is to help people create the smile they have always wanted. #4millionsmiles. Because this common goal there is no politics. Align surveys internal employees, hiring manager, people who come onsite to interview, they are very open to feedback. The leadership team is always open to hear your suggestion and are very accessible.

    Cons

    As I mentioned above many people will hear your suggestions, but they don't always listen. Also they could do more recognition of their employees.

    Pros

    This company has a great future. Lots of push to drive the business forward, feels very energetic. People are here because they believe in what we do.

    Cons

    As the company grows, it's a challenge to scale. People used to working in big, established companies may need to adjust to a lot of change if they come to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing - people will rise to the expectations you set.

    Pros

    Lots of positive momentum and recognition. The employee base tends to be very energetic, change-oriented and supportive of each other. Culture is focused on speaking up in a respectful way (feedback isn't right or wrong...just is). I enjoy coming to work everyday. Lots of empowerment to get cools things done and fun cross functional team relationships.

    Cons

    Still some parts of the business that lack process, but people pick up the ball and run to make it happen.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership makes bold decisions to and zags the industry while competitors are still zigging to figure things out. Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Align Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good base salaries and really good bonuses. The company paid out bonuses in early February and they were 50% larger than everyone was expecting. That was a nice surprise. Benefits are pretty good and there are opportunities to get stock options too.

    The current offices are pretty decent but they are opening up two new offices in San Jose and Raleigh later this year. Sounds like both will be really nice and people are excited about them.

    The environment is laid back but has a lot of really smart people driving towards a common mission. I like coming to work every day so that's a big plus.

    Noble/meaningful and recognizable product, good industry, lots of growth for the company and for the employees.

    Cons

    It's hard to break some of the tenured people from doing things they way they used to be done. Leadership is trying to get people to move with "agility" which is great. Just need everyone to buy into that now so processes can be more efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency, positive momentum, and rewarding your employees for a job well done. The company is doing really well financially so keep that up too.
