Each year, Glassdoor uses feedback that employees have shared on the website over the past year to compile a list of the best places to work in 2020. Employee reviews provide Glassdoor with insights into job and workplace attributes and qualitative feedback about why their employer provides the best place to work and what needs improvement.
Intuitive Surgical ranked seventh out of 100 on the Glassdoor list. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company received a 4.5 out of 5 rating over the last year. Some of its top reviews mention a good work-life balance as well as the innovations Intuitive Surgical is producing. The cons outlined by employees say that work-life balance can also be demanding at times and the fast-paced environment might take some time to adjust to.
Intuitive Surgical employed 5,527 people in 2018 and generated $3.7 billion in its last fiscal year or $673,800 per employee.
Johnson & Johnson was listed as number 71 out of 100 on the Glassdoor chart. The New Brunswick, N.J.-based company received a 4.3 out of 5 rating and its medical device segment generated $27 billion in revenue in 2018.
