    Hard working and dedicated field staff but high turnover of executive level

    Product Manager (Current Employee) South San Francisco, CA

    ProsThere is some serious dedication at BHL with only a handful of fellow colleagues that have left in the past several years. Those that have left were either 1.) laid off or 2.) were executive level and looking to grow career.

    ConsExecutive level management has had high turn-over so corporate direction is not always clear to those in other levels of management or in the field.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaintain communication with employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Work work work

    Lab Consultant (Former Employee) Alameda, CA

    ProsGood salary, great potential for very high commission, good benefits, and a lot of autonomy to get the job done. One of the highest potential sales compensation numbers in the industry. Great people below management at this company. No one cares how much you work as long as your numbers are good.

    ConsThe company changes direction every six months which upsets customers immensely. This causes the blame to fall on you and the office often will not want to deal with you again. Only two reps have worked here more than four years so there is a lot of turnover. More pressure here than anywhere on a DAILY basis to get your numbers up. When you leave to go to another sales job forget about going back into those offices you offended. No work/life balance. Just laid 15% of company off and more to come.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't fight the insurance companies to force them to pay exorbitant patient reimbursement. Instead contract with them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
