At Acumed, it’s easy to get involved and connect with co-workers. The office has an Activities Committee that organizes events like the winter party, Halloween costume contests, and engineering-based competitions called the "Annual Engineering Design Challenge." There's also a Green Team that focuses on making the workplace more environmentally sustainable. For employees interested in sports, there’s a softball team anyone can join, and the office has basketball hoops and a horseshoe pit for breaks during the day.
In addition to a tuition reimbursement program to help employees earn formal degrees, members of the Acumed Team can attend industry symposiums and other conferences that are relevant to their specific interests or areas of expertise. The company also recently introduced a Harvard ManageMentor program that allows employees to log on at their convenience and work through a variety of modules related to career development—like change management and conflict resolution.
“The mission of Acumed is very much built around the ingenuity of our minds, the labor of our hands, and also the passion within our hearts—and all that is dedicated towards giving the patient the best product available.”

“It produces a certain satisfaction to come in here and not only communicate with people in my department, but also intra-departmentally. The exchange of ideas is refreshing.”
