Do not do it!!!!! You will regret it
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAApril 5, 2019
First of all the team and workers are terribly unprofessional.
They talk behind your backs & smile in your face like they're in high school. Mind you they are in their 30s. Terrible company, brand, & service. The bare minimum is done everyday. They act like children. Clearly they've never worked in a professional environment because the lack of professionalism is dreadful. It may seem like a great place to work but it's all fake, the people mainly. Its a hostile and uneasy environment and not worth the mental and emotional strain. STAY AWAY from this company if you value yourself. It's just such a sad and petty environment & employees. They will hire ANYONE, they have no self respect or dignity for the company and NOTHING is confidential. I've seen with my own eyes peoples personal info being shared or not being kept confidentially. & They are filled with LIES & empty promises. They promise you a bunch of things and never follow through. Don't be a slave. Save yourselves

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 28, 2019
They run the company like its a start up and it is 20 years old. Too many VP's and not enough support staff. Works you like a dog! Work life balance is non existent.

Poor management
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CANovember 14, 2018
Lack of management made my job a whole lot harder. Money spent on lunches for every meeting and then getting a minimal raise was negative. People not getting along and going one more step to help the team. "That's not my job"
Pros
Free lunches every day, snacks, team events
Cons
Managers not listening to their direct reports caused a lot of headache for everyone.

Management is horrible
Employee (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAOctober 28, 2018
Management uses bullying tactics and threats of firing all the time. It is all about how much but kissing you do to management and if they like you. Some get to work from home others are not allowed to. No fair treatment.

A great company
Patient Conversion Specialist (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NCSeptember 4, 2018
Align was awesome, my only complaint is that the company did not put employees first, but from what I understand a number of things are changing about the culture, it appears to be improving for the better. I would recommend it to anyone.

Great Product, Uncertain Future
SENIOR PRODUCT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 24, 2018
It was publicly known that IP on the core business was about to expire. There was a cultural war within the Company over whether to expand the business model or stay with past practice. Marketing people were all engineers - and you weren't valued without an engineering degree.

The IP has now expired. I enjoyed many of the intelligent, innovative people at Align. If the innovators win out over the stagnant folks, Align's future will be bright.
Pros
People, Science behind the Products
Cons
Poorly trained managers, inability to move forward quickly.

Great work environment in Northern California
Senior Software Technical Manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 5, 2018
Great team of people. My team had 4+ people from Moscow. We were a team of 4 people of diverse backgrounds in NorCal. We managed a number of Ruby on Rails web applications and JavaScript implemented products by third party teams. We worked directly with business & marketing to ensure all deadlines were met. I developed a Salesforce Connector related to scheduling the time of phone based resources with doctors, dentists and orthodontists related to planning the future of their teeth alignment.

I also worked on Align Education products to help educate customers worldwide including a fast growing Chinese segment of exports.

Internship (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CANovember 28, 2017
It was an overall good experience. My only real negatives were at times the team got so busy that I felt forgotten about. Although I would always offer to help, I sometimes got the impression that they felt certain projects were probably too far over my head.
Pros
Nice people
