    I have been working at BSN medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good products with clinical efficacy, some quality people (especially recently) nice company car at this level, pay is average.

    Cons

    No options or equity, Germany wants to run the business as if it's Germany not USA, goals and objectives are unrealistic as compared to top quartile medical disposable companies. Culture is very negative and driven by PE mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your teams. Keep management stable rather than change every two years. Provide equity for everyone to ensure all the hard work has a reward rather than making the EVP's rich.

    I have been working at BSN medical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the lower rank & file and middle management cares, but unfortunately they are discredited and ignored by many in senior management. You learn quickly how to deal with chaos and how to navigate a workflow with too many steps to be effective, which I view as good career development.

    Cons

    Strategy changes constantly. Constantly in meetings that prevent productive work. Expectations and bonus plan is unrealistic. Unprofessional work environment that is absent of morals/values.

    Advice to Management

    Try for a minute to TRULY appreciate the people that make up BSN Medical USA.

    Pros

    It's ok if you are starting your first job and will give you some insight

    Cons

    Horrible management and you don't want to stay for long. The work life balance is horrible. It's a typical German company with very old mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Think before you jump in to this company

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the field. High quality globally recognized products. Good benefits and company vehicle. Good positioning in market

    Cons

    Poor upper level management growth strategies. Projected growth projections in direct conflict with sales force retainment

    Advice to Management

    There will continue to be upper level management turnover until the global executives are in alignment with the realistic expectations for realistic market growth in the US.
