    Worked harder than anywhere else, with little reward, appreciation, chance for promotion

    Sales (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsFirst medical device industry opportunity; found other sales personnel to be team-minded; managers powerless to make the necessary changes

    ConsSlow to respond to market and customer issues; internal staff is pleasant but stiff and unable to be flexible within the operations system; little appreciation or acknowledgement for business and relationships built

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up. a number of good people are going elsewhere when they could be building your business, image and culture.

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