    A company growing up

    Pros

    Interesting and worthy subject matter. Colleagues in engineering functions are great. Lots of opportunity to innovate.

    Cons

    CMR are growing up: changing from a start-up to a commercially viable proposition. A change in the CEO at the start of 2020 meant a change in company direction. As yet, not profitable, but close to being so.

    Pros

    Great mission - with real reaction on realising it (“transform surgery. For good.”) becoming a very credible international business

    Cons

    Transition from startup to international business means cultural changes (not really a “con”, just a fact).

    Glossy promo materials, but rotten to the core. BEWARE of this company.

    Pros

    - learnt about the type of company I do NOT want to work for again

    Cons

    - culture of lies, being two-faced and back stabbing in commercial and marketing/comms team. Scrabble for exec and senior management approval. If you are genuine and there to get the job done, you will be squished to the bottom then spat out. Be sure to have a thick skin if considering applying. - scary number of people marched off the premisis around the time 6 month probation ends - all in the marketing- 'a brand of desire' sadly it is what it says on the tin, product is not fit for clinical use- it does not stand up in product demonstrations, let alone in cadaver labs. Instruments especially in desperate need of attention and yet are now being used clinically. Ethics of this company are VERY questionable. - exec team are mostly self entitled and lack experience, but if you are close to them (through Oxbridge connections, or the church) you will be rewarded financially and with promotions - if you do not fit in and become a yes man, you will be asked to leave/bought off, with falsifications about reason for this given to you and spread to other employees - lots of managers with zero understanding of how to actually manage- even communicate with- employees - general environment is like a school playground, where money and influence/power is the bully

    Good for some

    30 Aug 2020 - Embedded Software Engineer in Cambridge, East of England, England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Some really nice people who are supportive - Very flexible working hours - The technology is interesting - Nice perks: free fruit, indoor climbing wall, good employer pension contribution - 10% nominal bonus scheme

    Cons

    I will caveat the following by saying that my experience has been with embedded software; being on a different site to the main company I have limited visibility of other areas. At the time of writing (and this looks set to be the case for the foreseeable future) the focus of the company has switched from developing the Versius robotic system to manufacturing it. What this translates to is that there is still interesting work to be done in some areas, for example: - Manufacturing are ramping up to support ambitious sales goals - Non-embedded software seem to have interesting work to do - Commercialisation of the product However, the embedded work (including electronics) largely now consists in uninspiring paper pushing. 'Development' work now seems to be relegated to the odd bug fix here and there (which often just results in a document change), but don't expect that you will be developing anything significant for the robot. Other cons: - Lack of training: 'training' largely consists of being sent irrelevant documents to read as a check-box exercise. Several people I know are worried that there skills are atrophying (the aforementioned lack of development work also contributes to this) - Lack of autonomy: it used to be the case that if you had a good idea, you could pursue it. This is no longer the case - Lack of variety: several people I know have been pigeon-holed
