A conversation with Margaret

What is your favorite project of your job?
In the Research department, we are always working on a variety of projects. Currently, my favorite project is our Animal Study which is looking at the effect of different implants and surface treatments on bone-implant osseointegration after a lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF). It is exciting to play a large role in such an extensive, preclinical research study with the potential to provide impactful data that supports our innovative technologies.

Globus’ commitment to innovation is one of the main ways Globus works to continuously advance patient care. The company is always striving to deliver innovative products that provide solutions for surgeons as well as improve the patient experience and clinical outcomes.

You are a Globus Women’s Network Board Member. What is your role and what are your expectations for the network?
My role on the GWN Board is VP of Finance. I oversee, record, and maintain all of the organization’s finances, as well as assist other Board members whenever extra help is needed. I am very grateful to be a part of the development of GWN and am excited to see the network grow and flourish. I expect GWN to foster the long-term success of women at Globus Medical by creating a supportive environment that encourages and inspires one another. GWN provides resources to bolster leadership abilities that help to contribute to our unparalleled development and delivery of innovative medical devices.

Do you have a favorite author/blog/book? What do you like best about it?
I am very passionate about health and fitness and follow a number of bloggers in that industry. It’s hard to pick just one, but a few of my favorites are Melissa Hartwig-Urban, the founder of “Whole30”; Alexis Joseph, founder of the food blog “Hummusapien”; and Alex Snodgrass, founder of the health and wellness blog “The Defined Dish.” I enjoy how these bloggers inspire healthy living while also showing it can be fun and easy!

A conversation with Josh

What is your role at Globus?
I maintain production within the wire EDM department. EDM is the manufacturing process where we obtain a desired shape by using electrical discharges or sparks. Whether it’s for production parts, new fixtures, or upcoming developments, I oversee a production schedule, certify precise measurements, and manage task completion in a timely manner.

What do you find the most challenging at Globus?
The most challenging aspect for me is programming. Programming for the wire EDM, or any machine, can be very tedious and takes discipline. Luckily, I have a phenomenal manager and supervisor who help me continuously strive for success. I’m still a beginner at programming, but I believe that the challenge is what makes me work hard to learn more.

What do you like most about working at Globus?
As a company and a team, we are helping people. There isn’t a better career than helping someone else. The fact that I help to produce a product that can advance patient care is an amazing feeling. There’s a lot of respect in Globus Medical and in the products that we deliver.

How is Globus advancing patient care?
Globus Medical is an international company that constantly produces new ideas and products for more than just spinal disorders. The company is always looking ahead to help create new technologies for people in need of musculoskeletal solutions.

What advice would you give to someone interested in joining Globus?
Take the steps to further your career by joining Globus Medical. Globus appreciates their employees and provides incredible opportunities to grow and learn new things. All members of the Globus Medical team have a deep admiration for what we develop and take pride in knowing what we do is always for the patient.
