    I worked at OrCam Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have worked with the company for over 2 years, this company grabbed my attention because it really stood out in a crowd of technology by trying to assist the visually impaired. The products help low vision & blind customers read books and identify products and faces. It really is rewarding in being able to assist someone with reading and identifying products with a cool product like the OrCam My Eye and My Reader.

    Cons

    Company does not provide positive feedback with employees, which leaves employees to feel over worked, unappreciated and underpaid. The SOP's are outdated which leads to errors on new employees or current employees. Employee feedback is predominantly not taken into account or even appreciated. US employees received far less time off than employees located in Europe or Middle East. Health benefits are minimal, with no vision or dental and a high deductible/copay. There is not a formal HR office in the US, which makes taking time off difficult and leads to work overload upon return. The HR office that is located in Israel RARELY responds to any concerns or questions you send. No one is accountable for their errors and only points the finger at the lowest person on the company tier. Lastly, the device itself has at minimum 2-3 months before requiring a replacement.

    I worked at OrCam Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have some really cool tech that mostly works.

    Cons

    Lack of a product department makes a chaotic workflow. There is no clear goals, and even the ambiguous goals are change regularly. Also, after I returned from paternity leave, my work conditions were worsened.
