    I have been working at Ekso Bionics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Mission (although, not always clear) - The products are fun and high-tech - Beautiful office location and easy commute. They have free parking and access to EV chargers in the back if needed - The people here are honestly very kind and caring. Ekso has the family feel - The office is dog-friendly and open - Small company so your opinion matters - Remote work for 1 day a week

    Cons

    - We're heavily dependent on funding and sales. When sales are low, budgets get cut - Company is small so there aren't a lot of people to support and resources can feel really low - Lots of remote workers on Fridays so the office can sometimes feel a little empty - A huge portion of Sales team members are new and are likely undertrained - Stock is NOT in great shape. Currently at a low of less than a $1 which puts us at risk of RS. - Pay is "meh" and bonuses are not a thing. They give you stock options which are kind of a joke right now

    Pros

    Amazing technology that truly impacts peoples' lives. Small company so your thoughts/ideas are actually heard and considered. Positive and likeable CEO along with the majority of c-level/executives. Unparalleled future growth with a leading technology in a new segment.

    Cons

    Highs and lows, like any new technology/company paving their way in a brand new industry. Some lack of transparency when things go wrong. Some of the executive team members could be let go and replaced with those who fit the culture better.

    I worked at Ekso Bionics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Technology is a game changer in both rehab and industrial markets. Cool office with typical startup layout with freedom for team collaboration and an idea blooming atmosphere.

    Cons

    Company focus has morphed and changed so much in a short period that it creates a confused marketplace from a customer viewpoint. With such an expensive technology customers need consistency and follow through with this company and it seems the revolving doors along with up and down performance to report a true revenue growth pattern prevents that from happening. Add that to a management team that is greener than the grass outside the office and you have a struggle to maintain a stable future. Sadly this ultimately means that this well designed technology can't get proper "footing" in the market resulting in less patients getting to benefit from its capabilities.
