Glaukos employees take their work seriously, but they have a fun side as well. Some Fridays are deemed “flip-flop Fridays,” while others are “Superhero Fridays,” when everyone dons a favorite superhero t-shirt. The atmosphere at Glaukos is casual and familiar, with an emphasis on humility as well as hard work and dedication.
Flat Tom is a paper character who bears a remarkable resemblance to Glaukos’ CEO, and who has his own Instagram account. When Glaukos employees go on adventures, Flat Tom accompanies them and posts selfies. It’s a fun and whimsical tradition that brings everyone together and encourages employees to share their travel stories.
