    Pros

    - you get to work with some of the brightest minds - competitive benefits and monetary compensation

    Cons

    - some department leaders could benefit from understanding how not to be micromanagers - complex internal systems and procedures, however knowledge to use these systems is not effectively imparted and it takes time to onboard and become productive - work life balance in some departments is challenging due to workload

    Best Company I ever worked for

    Apr 20, 2022 - Principal Mechanical Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - My coworkers have world-class skills, are creative and *also* have strong people skills and high integrity. My coworkers are super smart and willing to spend time to share their knowledge/experience. - There's no shortage of challenging stimulating work for engineers here. I am constantly learning because we're always developing new products with good collaboration between functions/teams. - I respect our management. The right people get promoted and decisions are made with transparency and relatively little politics. Intuitive is well managed and consistent integrity come from the CEO down. - Our products are improving patient outcomes on a massive scale worldwide. For me, this brings great satisfaction to not only create interesting designs, but also to make surgery better and safer.

    Cons

    - The "paperwork" is greater in the medical field for sure. But the regulatory burden is balanced by the satisfaction of making not only $$ but making lives better. - The workload and stress can be high but no worse than average in Silicon Valley, and at least management/coworkers have our back.

    Phenomenal product, strong partnerships, dedicated and mission-driven leaders

    Pros

    There is significant opportunity to add immediate value, to be heard and to have your ideas be implemented. The teams are true dedicated, true professionals who understand the importance of partnering to achieve common goals. There is also a great level of respect and trust displayed in others, and the importance of doing the "right thing" by all who are impacted by our company.

    Cons

    Scaling for high-growth has been painful. The long hours are often not sustainable, there is a true sense of burnout, and the systems and processes can sometimes take a while to get up to speed with the actual growth. More recent management additions to our team haven't aligned with the culture we've always valued, and this is concerning that we're hiring the "wrong" people because we're moving much too fast.

    Experience will probably depend on which line you're assigned to .

    Apr 16, 2022 - Assembly Technician II in Sunnyvale, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Hiring process is more focused on character than experience, which is good for entry-level positions Potentially great stepping stone to other technical careers Room for growth(manufacturing trainer, lead/supervisor roles, offline/engineering technician etc) Great for people who eat sleep and breathe work

    Cons

    (Depending on the line)Long hours with mandatory overtime, which usually isn't announced until near the end of the shift. Lack of communication from supervisors. Very strict attendance and quality policies, especially for temporary hires, which every new hire starts as. Requesting time off earlier than three weeks in advance is difficult. Shifts can start as early as 5:00, 4:30 or earlier, depending on business needs. Again this is dependent on where you're assigned.
