    Pros

    - Room to grow within the company - Friendly people, encouraging and positive culture (everyone working towards a common goal)

    Cons

    Given how fast the company has grown, some on boarding is still lacking structure but that has been addressed and is already being improved.

    I have been working at Align Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great culture and attitude toward employees.

    Cons

    Weak and inconsistent top management technological leadership and plain corruption and favoritism resulting in bad, inefficient and outdated practices in many domains that are not challenged for years. Some teams have good engineering standards and practices others not so good and others are just terrible (an open secret across the company). Ask more questions during the interview that will help you figure out if you are headed in a good team.

    I have been working at Align Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company cares about employees, made it very clear they would not be laying anyone off during COVID They have made working from home an smooth transition during the pandemic Increased maternity leave to 6 weeks in 2019 Great coworkers in my department as well as outside Lots of higher level positions outside of my department are open all the time Company does above and beyond for its customers consistently

    Cons

    Leadership in my department continues to add more responsibilities without additional pay We are doing work for sales reps that get paid more money than us, when they should be doing that work, so the role is slowly turning into a sales role Little opportunity for promotion within this specific department

    I have been working at Align Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Room for career movement and growth -Fair pay and benefits -Genuinely cares for employees and their safety (especially shown during COVID-19). To elaborate, during the COVID shutdown, Align took a no-layoff pledge. Buildings were closed but employees were set up to work from home. There were continual companywide check-ins from our CEO and higher management to offer peace of mind that they had no intention to perform layoffs. They encouraged us to spend time with our family and were flexible with the new at-home quarantine arrangements as schools got cancelled. Employee safety has been a top concern of Align during these unique times. As PPE became available, and as Align produced their own, PPE packages were mailed to each employee. I work remote, very rarely do I need to visit an office in person. But in the slight event I need to, Align has set me up to be prepared and safe. There is integrity with Align Technology unlike anything I've experienced with past employers.

    Cons

    None that I've experienced in my current role.

    I have been working at Align Technology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Compassion and empathy throughout company Great benefits Great base salary with potential for increased income with commission

    Cons

    Can be overwhelming with multiple agendas being thrown at you at once-if you’re not okay with being challenged or kept on your toes, I don’t think this is the right company for you. Have been working from home during pandemic which means days with multiple zoom/conference calls some days and switching gears into an all virtual world.

    Pros

    Stable, flexible, tech-forward, and folks generally work as a team.

    Cons

    Very advanced in some areas and very far behind in others. A global team can be draining with early and late calls.
