        Doesn't Recommend
        Neutral Outlook

        I worked at Avedro full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The clinical team was a smart and engaging group to work with. They encouraged the team to take on new tasks and continue to learn.

        Cons

        Upper management was strict with the hours, no flex hours and no chance of working from home.

        Advice to Management

        Have some trust in your employees and give them flexibility in their work day. This will help productivity and keep your team happy.

        Pros

        Cons

        Everything from management to VP’s to HR to everything in general

        Advice to Management

        You asked for an idea when An idea Is advised you don’t like it because it wasn’t yours. Human resource director’s manager’s Are on each other side and when you tried to confront them about something now you are a threat then they stick with each other and will eliminate you without any reason

          Pros

          This company is my top one ranking among many companies I worked during career. Startup, energetic, yet friendly. Really high tech company, with a small engineering team excel in areas of Mechanical, Optics, Electronics and Software. It also has a wonderful science team and ophthalmologists.

          Pros

          Lots of company change in 2016 has made for a very positive work environment - the old reviews here are very outdated. We now have US FDA approval, a new CEO who is a great leader with experience managing several other successful startups, flexible work environment (1/2 day Fridays in Summer), great benefits (100% dental, etc), colleagues with strong knowledge of ophthalmic space. With being a small company, it's easier...

          Cons

          I was hesitant to work here because of the negative reviews and the previous hostile work environment. Apparently the stories are true but that CEO is thankfully long gone! I made sure to address this in the interview process because I was leaving a Fortune 500 company to take a chance on Avedro. Once I met the people, I knew that it was a good fit. The people are great and the company is going at a fast pace. It's an...

          Interesting, innovative orphan product that can help people. Smart, driven employees Comradeship

          Cons

          Difficult regulatory path, not helped by attempted short-cuts and distracted priorities.

          Advice to Management

          Focus on the prize, and get rid of distractions. The US product is an orphan, treat it that way.
