    I have been working at ConforMIS full-time

    Pros

    The company pays a good portion of health insurance, and they have generous PTO.

    Cons

    The location is kind of in the middle of no where, with a new CEO everyone seems weary of where the company will go or how the culture will change.

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

    Pros

    Great experience builder and mostly awesome people

    Cons

    Despite assurances and discussions many times from interview process and years of employment that career advancement existed .... it does not. Conformis is a growing company that continues to act as if they are small.

    Advice to Management

    Major overhaul is needed to highest levels of management. Conformis continues to lose extraordinary people due to a lack of employee recognition and career building.

    Pros

    People working there are helpful.

    Cons

    Extremely repetitive work. It is as if I was a factory worker encouraged to produce as much as possible rather than an engineer.

    Pros

    Easy job to get straight out of college.

    Cons

    The environment I worked in at conforMIS was one of manipulation and micromanagement. The longer and hard teams worked, the more that was expected from them and there was little to no appreciation for it. Overtime was expected and never compensated. As a supervisor I was told to target goals for my team that were unrealistic and tasks were so menial and grueling that many members of my department would slump into depression, frustration, and burn out.

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible hours.. Not much else

    Cons

    Where should we start.. Conformis Management simply does not care about their employees, nor does it appreciate the work that you do for them. The CAD Department is solely a production environment, in which they try to make you think that it is all about the quality of life for the patient, when it's really all about reaching, sometimes impossible, production numbers. Management will tell you that there are many non-production projects that you can work on, but the reality is that 99.9% of your day will be spent designing the same process, over and over again. Employees are dropping like flies, and due to poor gross margins, often no one replaces the gaps in production. Employees rarely have a problem working a long day every so often.. But when management sends emails every day not asking you if you can work on the weekend, but what day can you work on the weekend, your employees aren't very happy.

    Also, the fact that we were recently told that very few will be hired in the next year, and instead that people from India are going to come, learn the process, and then go back to India and teach more people (But they insist it isn't outsourcing). And then the employees got in trouble for talking about the fact that they will be losing their jobs soon.

    Advice to Management

    Think twice before accepting a position here. It isn't even a good option for new employees with no industry experience because half of the employees are learning processes based on proprietary software that has no value anywhere else

    Pros

    Strong leadership team who are concerned with making organizational improvements continually and helping their employee's improve as well. Benefits were great, HR invested in employee programs and interests, strong salary for entry level positions.

    Cons

    Communication would sometimes be an issue, but I've had similar experiences with many organizations so they aren't breaking new ground in that department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing your employees that you care about improving the organizations strength and helping them along with their career paths, your efforts to be transparent are appreciated and show as a sign of strength organizationally.
