    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck thru a temp service. People are friends and nice.

    Cons

    There's no way and pretty much no guarantee you will get hired on permantley.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's no advice to share here. They all have their heads so far up their butts they can't hear anyone.

    Great products, manufacturing, and process improvement. Poor intern process and poor communication

    Former Employee - Intern in Largo, FL

    I worked at CONMED Corporation as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Medica devices, smart people, lots of manufacturing and process improvement

    Cons

    Very poor intern process (based on budget... interns are really temporary engineers when Conmed needs more help). Very hard to get a job unless you have been an intern for at least a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very busy people who do not spend time trying to mold interns. They do not really care about their interns.

    Not bad, but not interesting. Warehouse work really.

    Former Employee - Material Handler in Utica, NY

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are really nice, there is a lot of diversity in the different cultures of the staff living there. If you are a full-time employee there are some benefits and overtime opportunities.

    Cons

    Repetitive actions, motions, fast-paced machine-based work. Not always fun to be a machine operator or even a material handler. It can be quite rushed and stressful as the schedule must be met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice really. The facilities may soon be moving to Mexico. It was a bit rough. The supervisors might seem to care about you, but they really don't. All I ever got was empty promises from them.

    Current Employee - Territory Manager - Endosurgery Division

    I have been working at CONMED Corporation

    Pros

    1. Foot in the door of medical device sales
    2. Don't have to work all that hard
    3. Attainable quotas
    4. Like-able managers at Regional level
    5. Products are priced competitively which helps overcome the lack of innovation

    Cons

    1. Management at corporate level is horrible - VP holds the purse strings TOO tightly. Example - haven't had a regional OR national sales meeting since 2008 - prior to that it was 2006.
    2. Communication between corporate and field is non-existent
    3. Compensation structure based on GP and not a fair assessment of performance.
    4. NO opportunity for advancement unless someone retires or dies.
    5. Incompetent trainer and overall insubstantial training program
    6. Products are "me-too" for the most part
    7. Back orders and product failures abound.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Restructure compensation to accurately reflect performance.
    2. COMMUNICATE
    3. Spend more time and money on R&D. Have something new and innovative for reps to sell
    4. Force Frank to retire.

    Pros

    Acceptable work life balance.
    Fairness of Management towards employees.
    Products are well received by customers.
    Very nice people to work with at corporate.

    Cons

    Poorly launched products, launching products and then trying to come up with a plan after the market has seen the product.
    Back orders and chronic product failures that lead to customer complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from GP based compensation. Move to a flat percentage of sales for comp plan. Also, bump up the base salary. This is embarasingly low.
