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

    Pros

    My experience thus far has been exceptional. My on boarding and training process has been detailed, well planned and very informative. I've also received flexibility in my schedule. The company has been fully supportive of my continued education while employed. The HR team is fantastic. They are detail oriented, extremely knowledgeable and always willing and able to assist. I truly feel a family-like atmosphere throughout the organization. The CEO and President are strong business leaders who are willing to do "whatever it takes" to create a culture of innovation, inspiration and empowerment for each employee. I'm excited about the direction of the company, and I look forward to several more years of career growth with the organization.

    Cons

    I have yet to experience cons. The organization is going through some exciting cultural changes and it will take time to permeate, but it's willingness too is very strong.

    I have been working at Endologix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No Pros. It had pros not anymore

    Cons

    Constant org chart change, every 6 months, poorly managed company. Very poor leaders, people in management have no experience. They keep breaking down teams and like to divide and conquer. They make decisions in sialo without involving the subject matter experts. Its a sinking company. All good people have left. Stock keeps falling. They do not value employees or people with experience. If you have no experience this company will value you

    Advice to Management

    The company is sinking because of you

    Pros

    Family oriented environment. Supervisors are well rounded and understanding. Vacation and sick hours are good and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    New Management surpress production line. They demand more to reach their goals, but is very tight with promotions and no rewards what so ever to the team.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors are great, but Management shouldn't be like boot camp leaders.

    Pros

    Sr. Management, open door policy, pay, culture and work-life balance. Great location and modern office space. Internal support when you need help.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be very stressful due to a technicality but expected considering lives are at stake.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with your mission; the competition doesn't want ELGX around due to the risk of losing a huge amount of marketshare long-term. If launched correctly and with percision, Nellix will dominate the market for years to come.

    I have been working at Endologix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Company strives to be the innovation leader among companies making products to treat aortic aneurysms
    - Ability to learn about multiple product platforms designed to treat aortic aneurysms
    - High value placed on customer relations leading to many opportunities to understand the real customer needs. Multiple groups of physicians, both domestic and international, visit the campus every month.
    - Many opportunities to make improvements to existing procedures and processes. Many people here still have a lot to learn within their functions.
    - Many people are hardworking and passionate about making products to help people.

    Cons

    - Too many organizational structure changes. Many employees are assigned to a new manager almost every year and in some cases more frequently.
    - Promotions are not always merit based.
    - Recognition of teams and individuals for achieving significant milestones is often nonexistent depending on the senior management over the project, budget constraints, or recent news
    - Company is still figuring out how to work across two sites, Irvine and Santa Rosa, and has been for over a year, which has led to inefficiencies in management and product development. Changing the Product Development Process twice within the last two years is also a significant contributor to project delays.

    "High Turnover, Not Recommended"

    I worked at Endologix full-time

    Pros

    Good talent and friendly employees (non-management). New and well-maintained facility. Offers electric car charging. Plenty of parking. On-site gym. Free fruit two times a week.

    Cons

    Turnover is extremely high, resulting in very little historical product and process knowledge. Employees are treated as a moveable resource headcount and moved around as needed by management, and because of this, there is no talent /career development.

    Toxic environment. There is no focus on developing a pleasant company culture. People are always blaming others and throwing departments/people under the bus. New comers keep joining and trying to revolutionize the way things are done, which results in a very unstable environment.

    Work load is very high and stressful. Processes and systems are cumbersome and designed for a large company with more resources, which prevents even small tasks from being accomplished quickly. Engineers are not empowered to think freely, problem solve, or lead projects. Very few things can be completed at the Engineering peer level. Everything has to be signed off by a Manager or above.

    Politics are a huge obstacle. Favoritism is rampant. Management tries to undermine other departments by refusing to approve or sign off on things until what they want done is accomplished.

    Operations is completely mismanaged with little / no concern for product quality. The concern is always cost over the patient. Priorities are constantly changing. Projects are not well-planned. The teams are constantly cutting corners to cut costs.

    Management is not transparent and does not properly communicate their vision (if any).

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with the employees needs and concerns. Employees are the heart of your company. The extremely high turnover rate should be telling you something.

    Pros

    Endologix is going today through some rocky times, but this is a very solid company with great products and a strong R&D pipeline. Leadership is committed to making hard decisions, always putting the patient first. This is a company that is revolutionizing an industry and is definitely going places. Awesome people drawn from within the game industry and selectively from best practice organizations.

    Cons

    Recently we have had some regulatory delays. It caused short-term belt-tightening, but the vision and pathway to market leadership remains clear.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and don't lose faith in the fundamentals of this strong organization.
