"Great place to work from my limited time working at Intuitive. There are a lot of smart and talented individuals at Intuitive. Some of the cons consist of a very stressful environment at times and planning tends to lack in earlier stages which causes issues later onwards."

"If the highlight of your day is free food, this is the place. As for the company culture, it is very poor. There is a lack of recognition, and people think they are important in this bland Silicon Valley company who are full of themselves."

Intuitive Surgical Employee

"I've worked at Intuitive for almost 2 years. They treat their engineers very well. There is a very open environment as represented by the CEO of the company running the quarterly employee meetings and appearing at other division meetings as well. The only negative is the amount of documentation required for relatively simple engineering changes."

What do you like about working at Intuitive Surgical?

"Almost everything was great, may return someday. Left of my own choice and can be rehired."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Just be honest, if this is the right place for you it's wonderful but if not they will send you down the road."
