    Experienced medical sales reps will become unhappy very quickly and burnout here.

    I worked at AlterG

    Pros

    Top notch, highly innovative product that physical therapist are genuinely excited about and interested in. Pretty cool people.

    Cons

    Difficult sale due to cost so you will work three times as hard here for a fraction of the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hire people who have been already been successful in medical sales. While you are up front about the pay being much lower than the industry standard, any good rep will believe they can be a top performer. In the end though, the significantly longer work hours and higher stress level will not justify the pay to anyone who has already made good money in the industry and will lead to a swift burnout. It becomes depressing getting up and going to work everyday for a person who may have been making double in positions that didn't keep them up at night due to stress. Hire truly entry level sales people.

    I worked at AlterG full-time

    Pros

    Very casual environment - people wear work out clothes, bring their dogs to work and the company allows you to workout 2 hours a week during working hours. Most people are very friendly. There are lots of free snacks, espresso machine, etc...
    The products really help people so you can really feel good about what you are making.
    It is a small start up so there is a lot of work but everyone is very motivated.

    Cons

    A few people are very difficult to work with
    Some areas of the bldg are older and many conference room chairs are broken, etc...
    The insurance benefits are not very good - you end up paying a lot out of pocket

    Pros

    There are no pros when you work for this company.

    Cons

    This is a very negative working environment this company is run like a fraternity. If you are not part of the in crowd then you will not do well here. It doesn't matter if you are a really good sales person or not they truly operate like an all boys club. Stay away from this company .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop running this company like its a fraternity.

    I have been working at AlterG full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A health and wellness focused company with a very broadly intelligent team. This is the first company I've worked for where 90% of the people care about the customers, product and work that they do every day.

    Cons

    Same cons with any small company trying to grow: not enough hours in the day or resources. A better office location would be nice too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the transparency with the team. Ensure that the culture is maintained regardless of how much we grow.
