    China-centrism unsuitable for international company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFascinating insight into workings of Chinese company. Looks good on resume. Chinese employees with USA college degrees well respected. Cheng Minghe is exceptionally knowledgeable. Liu Jie is also a good leader, but he's overworked, given all blame, and is now out.

    ConsInexperienced, totally unqualified, incompetent Chinese employees, especially with USA college degrees, are assumed to be more suitable as decision-makers than highly qualified non-Chinese. Provably incorrect Chinese advice almost always trusted more than experience-based non-Chinese advice, except if from expensive outside consultants. Mindray has eliminated almost all non-Chinese R&D personnel, including cutting hundreds of USA R&D after acquiring Datascope. R&D therefore now focuses mostly on figuring our ways to copy Western competitors' products without violating patents. Credit always goes up; blame always goes down, so if a product doesn't sell well, it must be sales person's fault. Also leads to frequent replacement of R&D head, or R&D restructuring. The CEO will never change a clearly stupid decision because that would be admitting error, which, by definition, is impossible. International focus and sophistication severely lessened when CEO Xu Hang left. CEO Li prefers to focus on small, domestic, Chinese problems and competitors he understands rather than big, more dangerous non-Chinese problems and competitors he doesn't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet somebody with clear international vision and experience run the company, or flatly admit to investors that Mindray is not going to be expanding in non-Chinese markets but rather will continue to rely on Chinese government tenders.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsGreat place to start medical sales career. Good, solid training program, nice benefits, and decent territory layouts. Employees are given good opportunity to make decent money.

    ConsMirco-management! Seasoned reps need not apply. Quotas will be set well above attainable, and number one priority is where is the next deal. It is very difficult to properly build long term relationships with customers, because you will get a call everyday to see where you are and when you are bringing in the next deal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating reps like they are entry level. You hire high quality, talented people, treat them accordingly. Your turnover will go WAY down.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
