    Pros

    Huge value to the customers. High paced environment.

    Cons

    Need to have the right mindset to work for this company. As with any company, some will thrive but many will perish. Understand where you are, decide where you want to be and have the courage to make the right decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the changes required to bring the company to the next level and be explicit on what we are doing and what we are not.

    Pros

    Great products. That's about the only pro

    Cons

    Only 50% of sales force makes quota. If you don't make 90% to plan you're not making much commission, which means lots of reps are living off <$70k per year, which considering the complexity and experience level needed for the sale is pretty much unacceptable. That's less than what I made my first year out of college. My manager hates women and they think hey are gods and therefore don't have to pay market rates

    I worked at Biosense Webster

    Pros

    Considerable amount of growth in a very specialized industry. Competition is weak, at best. At least for now.

    Cons

    Corporate (Johnson and Johnson) always very interested in what the company is doing. Sometimes difficult to focus on what needs to be done at the company level with so much corporate interest.

    Products are innovative, but depend entirely on field force to operate; CAS work-life balance is poor

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

    Pros

    The products are genuinely pretty technical and geek worthy. So far, internal communication has been good. I always understand where the company's marketing focus is and what we (as the field force) need to work on.

    Cons

    I wake up each day dreading going in to work. Some physicians are verbally abusive, schedule cases late into the evening, and are demotivating. You will spend a good 50-60 hours in the field in addition to whatever time is left to do paperwork, expense reports, emails, training materials. The case load is fairly unpredictable - some cases can be one in 1 hour, and some will take 8 hours. You won't be able to take a lunch break or bathroom break, so be physically and mentally prepared to sit through the case. The company values their profit margin more than their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please track how much TIME your CAS spend in the field, not by $$$ or by cases. My work-life balance, as well as most compensation agreements are based on a mutually desirable currency of time. Time = money.

    I worked at Biosense Webster as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work that you do makes a difference. If this position did not exist, Sr. Financial Analysts would be doing the work that you will be involved in. You will have meaningful work with intelligent people. People are very supportive of your career development, as well.

    Cons

    The team can be a little clique-ish, is split between two separate buildings, and is constantly changing. Not a lot of room to move around in different positions.

    Shlomi still runs company even though David Shepherd is President.

    I have been working at Biosense Webster

    Pros

    The GMB has been revamped and most of them are great. People are very smart here...great qualifications.

    Cons

    Runs way too lean, people feel overworked and resources are lacking. This is Shlomi's management style and it's horrible for morale. I know too many people across different functions looking for a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to reel Shlomi in as he established a horrible culture and he's now leading 7 companies. It's painful and he's just all about profit not people.

    Extremely cold and cliquish. You feel like just a "body" here.

    Pros

    privacy to get your work done

    Cons

    no camaraderie, not much advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start interacting with your staff, instead of treating them like a cog on a wheel.
