Does CMR Surgical have a pension plan?

Pros

Well funded, casual working environment, generous pension scheme and life assurance – better than industry standard. If you’re a fresh graduate, contractor and don’t question the status quo.

Cons

- Boys network, so no impartiality, and the token female - Imperialist, overpowering, ethnocentric, nepotistic, politically incorrect , insensitive, disrespectful, lack of objectivity, lack of experience, allow bad behavior in leadership positions to perpetuate. Their way or the high way. - No clear approach, scientific thought or rationale, lack of diversity working with external consultants. Investors money is spent irresponsibly. - More spin and marketing than actual scientific process No respect given to people bought in with diverse and extensive experience. However, if you are experienced and managed to get a foot in the door and managed to get a foot in the door in first place and don't fit the following, you'll be at a disadvantage financially and professionally: o worked with CEO and exec team previously o Oxbridge graduate o Cambridge/Oxford born and bred - and evangelical o Into cycling, climbing, running, rowing etc, o and/or friends/close family friends with anyone on the Exec team. There's no transparency on promotion opportunities, or salary benchmarking. If you fit the above culture, you will be overly compensated, promoted, and get financial extras as the Exec team wish. Hence experienced, then ultimately demotivated staff leave. There is a culture to badmouth people who leave instead of internally reflecting on issues. If you raise an issue with management, you'll find that you're on a path to be fired, or asked to go on gardening leave abruptly, once notice handed in.

Advice to Management

None: as they’d be too arrogant to take anything on board. Financially they’ll win either way.

How are the career development opportunities at CMR Surgical?

Pros

Mostly amazing people, very good pension contribution from the employer, and life insurance.

Cons

Lack of experience of the top management makes things very difficult. The promotions are mostly based on how well they get on with management or how much they pander to them. There is no structured career path or training. Experienced people get disheartened and leave. Too much politics has taken away the beauty and excitement away.

Advice to Management

Hire a top management team that can take CMR where it needs to go.

There is no structured career path or training.
