    I worked at BSN medical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked for a great team, good products, leader in the industry.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of room for upward mobility. It was also owned by private equity, decisions were made on profitability in the short-term rather than having any long-term vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for more growth, and continue to innovate new products.

    Pros

    Very little supervision and products have little competition so you can do will in your space.

    Cons

    Senior leadership turns over every year. Regional Business managers have little experience so they will not make you a better rep. This is a stepping stone job. Once you figure out the commission plan so you can make six figures they change it.

    I worked at BSN medical full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the medical device field and are just starting out, then BSN will give you the knowledge you need to move on in a yr or so.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen, no structure, no opportunity for training or advancement. This from an 18 year veteran of BSN. Every 2-3 yrs the company is bought out by another. No one is happy there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, be fair and stop with the "favorites" and the gossip (and yes, even the men). Ridiculous....

    I worked at BSN medical

    Pros

    Overall, the day to day work is good. Managers do not micro manage, at least in the groups that I worked with. You get recognition for effort given, etc.

    Cons

    Overall, BSN medical is a very political atmosphere. The company is privately held (currently), so there is more leeway given for politics. Many decisions are made because the "right people" get on board. This really depends on who is friends with who and not based on what is the right decision. I seriously doubt this makes its way up to senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advise I would give is to possibly have a channel that employees could voice their concerns/opinions without the fear of backlash from the political middle management. Bad decisions get little opposition because no one is willing to get black balled for fighting it.
