Doesn't Recommend

Pros

great device design and methodology, people are friendly from top management to assembly workers

Cons

higher management doesn't like to see employees with massive growth potential. they like to hire talented individuals from competitors, pay low, give tiny amounts of shares upon hiring, bonuses at the time were non-existent and they try their hardest to keep your career stagnant.

Advice to Management

Mr. CEO and fellow upper management, ease off on the crony system and form your own opinions of your employees - hearsay doesn't become you.

    I have been working at Penumbra full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm not quite sure what all the talk about nepotism is about, maybe it's just in certain departments. I got my job here having no internal connections and got a promotion within 4 months. I work hard and come to work every day with a positive attitude and from what I can see and what I've experienced, that is how you move up in this company. Prove you can handle extra responsibilities and your supervisors will be happy to provide them for you. The company is growing very fast which means there are a lot of opportunities for personal growth as well.

    Cons

    Location, while beautiful, is pretty far from most things. There are only two food options within walking distance.
