      Pros

      The people & culture is second to none. Real investment in their people and you can tell people actually care for others. Not too many times can you say you're working on things that will change and save lives while in a corporate role which only makes your day to day even more rewarding. Commitment to various stakeholders and especially our commitment to our patients.

      Cons

      High growth company comes with a lot of hours

      Pros

      Intuitive is made up of a diverse set of individuals focused on patient care and excellence in their day-to-day. You will never feel more supported or more challenged by your coworkers. The candid feedback central to Intuitive's culture empowers individual contributors to achieve their best. As a military veteran, I could not ask for a better organization to support my transition.

      Cons

      You will work harder than you ever have in your life, but it will be all worth it.

      Pros

      Benefits as far as equity in the company was great.

      Cons

      Toxic in that there were way too many people from different pods (teams) that wanted to own and do the same work that one or a few individuals were already doing.

      Nepotism and lack of structure.

      Pros

      Good compensation and benefits. Amazing technology.

      Cons

      Nepotism at its best! Mid management incompetency with an ego bigger than their salaries. If you feed into it and go along with the politics you’re fine, it’s nauseating. Don’t even think about speaking up your mind. You’ll be disrespected, insulted and thrown under the bus at the first opportunity. Absolutely no transparency whatsoever. Organizational changes happen almost on a monthly basis if not more, but even if it impacts your job you get no information about it. There’s no communication, like everything is a secret and you just need to go with it and be happy about it. Expect to do a completely different job that you were hired for. You spend more time dealing with hostility and trying to make people happy than actually getting work done. If you’re seen as an outsider you’ll be completely ostracized before you even have a chance to prove yourself.

      Exceptional Culture and Opportunity to Grow

      Pros

      Fostering a collaborative and healthy competitive culture has been not only talked about by management, but truly exists and is lived every day. I truly enjoy interacting with my coworkers and feel like I am always learning. As a military veteran, this was paramount to me - I've seen both ends of the spectrum.

      Cons

      Management really emphasizes schedule flexibility and prioritizes family when needed... but you must have passion for advancing minimally invasive surgery. This is a whole world you need to be ready to step into. Extremely challenging, but exceptionally rewarding!

      Great company to work for and great hiring process

      Pros

      One of the most seamless hire that I had experience with at Intuitive. From start to finish, at the leadership level, it was around 2 months which is phenomenal in these Covid times. Ken Krings is a master recruiter with so many assets under his belt that he was magical to facilitate the schedule and the offer in a rapid turn around. I was amazed at the professionalism of Ken and the hiring team and I am appreciative of the opportunity. I am here to stay. Intuitive is truly one of the best companies to work for and there is so much camaraderie that it is a magnet. There are quite a few long term employees you can learn from and jump start your career at Intuitive.

      Cons

      No cons I can think of

      Pros

      Mileage reimbursement, quarterly bonuses, no quota until next position

      Cons

      You may get placed on a team serving multiple reps by yourself which can be challenging but great for development.
