    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at AO Foundation full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for travel and high-impact work, real fun working with the surgeon community, exciting work, ambitious

    Cons

    Don't expect work life balance, political, unprofessional, stagnant with some ideas and strategies, disorganized, dep. on which department you are in and who your Manager is, you are at their mercy, HR supports Management not the employees

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and have a more consistent approach

    Pros

    Please do not come to work in this hell!

    Cons

    Ridiculous Management Money laundering organisation Highly political Depressive place to work Once you come here it is almost impossible to find a company willing to recruit you, due to the bad reputation of AO

    Advice to Management

    Change the entire management structure and the current Foundation strategy Be more honest and ethical Do not exploit honest middle and low management. The do all the dirty work to allow Directors to do the nice life!!!

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at AO Foundation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You meet interesting surgeons and cultures, a nice possibility if you love that. You can enjoy travelling (also with your partner) and seeing nice places and hotels.

    Cons

    Permanent changing strategy, highly political environment, wasting money in the name of medicine, useless HR, if you don‘t fit into their mind-set - watch out!

    Advice to Management

    Start watching your staff!
