    I worked at ConforMIS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product and a great place to start your career and the culture is above average but was slightly above average when it's location was in Burlington Ma.

    Cons

    Not enough career advancement. Lack of great leadership and direction. Going public! Not being able to retain great young talent.

    Advice to Management

    Trust you employees.

    I worked at ConforMIS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    New technology
    Tour of manufacturing facility was insightful and helped further understanding of the business

    Cons

    Engineers should not be hired to be CAD monkeys
    Growth opportunities are limited
    Advancement system has minimum required time period in position regardless of output/performance

    Advice to Management

    Be honest in the interview process. If you skew job growth or advancement opportunities to look like they exist but don't actually exist, you'll lose the candidate anyway.

    I have been working at ConforMIS full-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. I'm required to put 5 words in here, but I can honestly not think of anything else to say

    Cons

    Micro management, repetitive work, hostile work environment, petty office politics, middle management with zero experience dealing with people

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone can design a fem jig well doesn't mean they are a good manager. You're not a young start up anymore, get yourself together

    I worked at ConforMIS full-time

    Pros

    Built great relashonships with some co workers.

    Cons

    Technology is actually not that great or novel like they make you believe. Take a look at the stock history. Working here follows that same trend. Do not come here as your first job, it is a dead end. Get out as soon as you can and move to a real company.

    Advice to Management

    Let the company die.

    Pros

    Good benefits...literally that is it. The technology could be great if it was in the right hands.

    Cons

    The work culture completely depends upon what department you are in. Lay offs are currently happening at the company and the company has never been profitable so don't work here if you're looking for something stable and worthwhile. As others have said the employees are over worked and under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Create a friendly work culture that doesn't make coming into work miserable. Mend the gap between management and employees.

    Pros

    The work you do directly improves people's lives. It's rewarding hearing about cases you've worked on.

    It's a great place to meet people right out of college.

    Cons

    Bachelor and Masters degrees are wasted in the CAD Department. The work could be done by anyone who knows CAD like a high schooler or an associates degree.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize the department to utilize engineers (and less of them) to make process improvements while hiring more technicians to work on production. Pay a more competitive salary to keep talent.

    Pros

    Technology is terrific. Great patient outcomes. There are some great employees there.

    Cons

    Employees are overworked. The salaries are very low. Upper managements doesn't listen or ask for employees ideas or input. New CEO is not impressive. HR is in the dark ages and needs new leadership.

    Advice to Management

    The list is to long.

    I have been working at ConforMIS full-time

    Pros

    The product is unique and revolutionary. It is exciting and rewarding to be involved with a product I believe in.

    Cons

    Completely overworked with no recognition. Entire company is understaffed. It's tough to go to a place where you want to make a difference and have management be completely ignorant. The company is obsessed with hierarchy but can't effectively use it. Management consists of complaining about why things aren't done and thinks the solution is hiring more managers to ask why things aren't done. Toxic environment. No team work. Chaotic. Lots of turnover. Office atmosphere is extremely negative.

    Advice to Management

    Give the proper people a seat at the table. You have plenty of talent and people who believe in your company but you stay locked in your offices and don't listen. Instead of "managing" by having increasing levels of yelling take the time to solve root issues. The issues are obvious. I'd hoped the new ceo would help but things are even worse.
