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

    Pros

    The company, its leaders, and employees are genuinely committed to developing great products that help to make a difference in patient safety. Company leaders are involved and accessible, including the CEO. Everyone works very hard but it’s a privilege to work alongside co-workers who are so committed. The onsite café and amenities are great!

    Cons

    As with most companies, there’s never enough people to handle all the workload, but that’s a universal problem everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Share more of the strategic plans to all employees so that everyone will understand how they fit with the long term goals.

    Pros

    Joe has a great story and philosophy .

    Cons

    But no one seems to follow.
    Lots of reactive thinkers - finger pointers- whats in it for me attitude.

    1- Forcing Hospitals to change to a cheaper made products for better ROI ( RD)
    2- Forcing Hospitals to accept equipment FOB and not extending warranties sometime for years.
    3- Operations hiding device technology problems with patches and un-validated revisions and circumventing internal processes.
    4- Installing unsupported software revision without the customers approvals or knowledge.
    5-Hiding internal system processes and problems from all employees and CEO

    Advice to Management

    Step back and review what values you had be true to yourself and others and take care of the people who work for you!.

    I worked at Masimo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company itself it a great place, very nice atmosphere and environment. The work was great, learning and being taught by other QA employees. Nice cafe, and office.

    Cons

    The downfall was getting tasks not associated to the job description, with minimal training and fixing former employees mistakes without any help at all. They ignore you’re actual job description and what you should really be doing. Sad to say the manager expects you to fix former employees mistakes with an unreasonable time frame, just puts more stress on you. I do not recommended.

    I worked at Masimo full-time

    Pros

    -Gym
    -Open Parking Available
    -Stock Options given to employees
    -Location
    -Building looks professional

    Cons

    -Management is very disrespectful and treats their employees as sweat shop laborers
    -Back stabbing highly political environment
    -Management plays favorites and will throw you under the bus to see someone they like get promoted ahead of you
    -Managers micro manage
    -Extremely high turnover rate for example almost half of the department quit in the time period of one year
    -Management talks down to and harasses employees
    -Not allowed to take breaks and forced to work overtime everyday without compensation
    -No opportunity for advancement
    -Cubicle dungeon with no windows

    Everyone working in the department is looking for another job and trying to leave the toxic work environment management has created.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the managers that have the highest turnover rate as employees clearly do not want to work under backstabbers and two faced people.

    I worked at Masimo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ping pong table, on-site gym, cafeteria, koi pond, volleyball court, plenty of on-site EV charging stations with discounted rates for employees.

    Good oximeter products.

    Cons

    Micromanaging is a norm at Masimo and I believe it is part of this company's culture.

    You can see or hear people get shouted at or talked to by their managers in a very degrading way almost everyday.

    Managers do not know how to manage and show no respect and trust toward you. They think their relationship to you as policemen to suspects.

    Unless you are desperate for a job, I will suggest avoiding this place at all cost.

    Advice to Management

    Did you read those comments people made during exit interview?
