    I worked at Globus Medical full-time

    Pros

    Great medical and Education reimbursement program, plenty of OT available too

    Cons

    Corporate BS as usual. Remote micromanagement is a negative too....

    Advice to Management

    Provide a SOLID roadmap, establish a "mindset" and Guidelines then let your children offices put in work and let them have the money they need to do it....

    I have been working at Globus Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My boss is a bright spot in an otherwise poorly run company

    Cons

    Badly rundown facilities, internally developed IT system that is unreliable, management is incompetent and overly concerned about enforcing the archaic ban on working from home since they're unable to make actual improvements to the company, low morale among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Have more faith in the people you hire is much better than constantly being suspicious they'll steal information to start a new company like you did.

    I worked at Globus Medical full-time

    Pros

    Globus had a great working environment, everyone there was extremely friendly and welcoming. All of the employees got along and created a very comfortable and social environment. The research department also allowed me to develop multiple analytical and experimental skills that I had not had before.

    Cons

    There were some organizational changes occuring during the period of time that I was working there. This caused some confusion and stalling of projects, however this period may have passed since I left.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear about what is required/wanted. Sometimes the direction was slightly vague and this caused a disconnect between the management and engineers.

    I worked at Globus Medical full-time

    Pros

    - Good chances to travel.
    - Good design experience right out of college.
    - Young workforce, great place to make some friends.

    Cons

    - Management isn't very good; Middle management positions are filled with mostly yes men to the executives.
    - Product managers aren't as valued as the engineers.
    - Innovative projects are few and far between.
    - Pay is pretty low for the field. They know most engineers will only stay for one to two years, and they're completely fine with it.
    - 401k is 3% match and doesn't start vesting until 3 years.
    - Starting rate is 10 vacation days, 5 sick days, 1 personal day, and 1 inclement weather day.
    - Raises are typically 3-4%. If you get promoted you'll get another 5% on top of that.
