    I worked at Hansen Medical (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting technology - potential to revolutionize catheter based procedures.

    Cons

    Technology Development dominated by a bunch of Stanford grads who think they are great as Stanford grads tend to do. I find that they are at best average - and group and don't allow outsiders.

    Advice to Management

    Be able to make system more robust while still doing Technology

    I worked at Hansen Medical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology that was just hitting the surface of what it could do.

    Cons

    No drive for sales with minimal sales reps and company operating a a loss for several years never helps.

    Advice to Management

    There is no more management due to Auris Robotics acquiring them.

    I worked at Hansen Medical (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company, manufacturing and OR/clinical equipment onsite so you can be involved in every aspect of the process, from concept to manufacturing to clinical workflow. Very fast-paced hardworking collaborative environment with lots of very smart passionate people to work with.

    Cons

    The market for the product is not extensive, lack of communication (or disagreements) between upper management and engineering mean that project goals and timelines can be confusing.

    Pros

    Expose to many different areas.
    Learn cool technology.
    Most people are very nice.
    Team listens to your voice.

    Cons

    This place grinds you up.
    Not much effort put into improving product quality.
    No desire for continue improvements.
    Spent too much time talking instead of doing.
    High attriction

    Advice to Management

    Should work hard on keeping good people.

    I worked at Hansen Medical full-time

    Pros

    Management that has successfully grown medical device companies in the past.

    Cons

    Most start ups are lean, and try to do minimal amount of work to get product out the door, Hansen takes that to the next level. Compliance and quality are definitely iffy here.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality
