Pros

Exciting opportunity to transform healthcare system while saving lives and reducing costs by billions. Revolutionary and disruptive technology that will create a new industry. Great enthusiasm from physicians, hospitals and insurance companies - which almost never happens in health care. Great team working on a challenging and important problem. Exceptional talent from the CEO on down. Have hired some of the best and brightest in their fields from all over the world - no shortage of talent nor drive. Everyone is dedicated to a greater purpose - that of helping patients. I have never worked with a more talented team. Fun place to work. Amazing location overlooking the SF bay. Great gym, cafeteria. Everyone works hard and is dedicated to company mission.

Cons

HeartFlow faces the challenges any health care start-up would that is so disruptive and has so much potential for change. It grew too fast in part based on belief it could bring products to market much quicker than was the case. Since this is such a new and disruptive technology, there is no playbook to follow and as a result there have been some wrong decisions made along the way (as well as many right ones). Rapid growth prior to revenue led to layoff at end of 2012. To their credit the management team has learned from these mistakes and put the team on a path to success and a great future.

Advice to Management

Maintain focus on driving adoption of core product

    Pros

    HeartFlow has amazing employees. They have gathered the world's best in software, imaging, biomedical, medical and other fields. You can't go wrong working with the best people.

    The technology is cutting edge and is actually meaningful, helps people, and solves big problems. It feels good to work on highly meaningful problems vs games and apps.

    The culture is great, really strong efforts to make an enjoyable and active workplace. Good team camaraderie.

    The company is well funded and poised for success.

    Cons

    There are risks and uncertainties as with any startup, but for the right people that makes it exciting. Be ready for ups and downs, long difficult projects, tight resources, and occasional disappointment. The company has a lot to do still. I think the success and potential of the technology and team overwhelm these issues though.

    Other reviews mention some resentment to the reorg that occurred last year, but the move was courageous and the outcome now is very positive. Not every company has the guts to make a decision like that, let alone succeed and thrive afterwards.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused, keep hiring only the best, and maintain strong culture as we start to be commercial.
