    I worked at CONMED Corporation

    Pros

    My territory counterpart, the surgeons I worked with in the field, the marketing team, and the corporate office in Denver.

    Cons

    - Management
    - The interview process is not a reflection of the work environment
    - The upper management does not support the sales representatives. They support the managers that direct the sales force, and have no clue what is taking place in the market.
    - The communication that takes place between management and the territory managers is negative and condescending.
    - Good luck deciding what's important enough to bring to your director. If you're correct in approaching them it is too late, if it is not important to them you are wasting their time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who want to positively impact and drive the sales force. Some people are meant to be in an office.... With little human interaction.... Not out in the field compromising relationships.

    Former Employee - Sales in North Amityville, NY

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Only for building resume. Get the contacts you need at hospitals then get the heck out.

    Cons

    Terrible management team: bullying, micromanagement, controlling. It's like a little boy's club with gossip and bashing behind your back when you don't kiss their butts or bend over and take it up the tailpipe. To anyone considering working here - think again. The only division I'd consider is the Endo division. Don't say you weren't warned!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. Or if you're too stubborn, take some management courses for a change. Stop controlling and manipulating your hard-working employees. And to the new CEO? Try digging in to the real reasons for such terribly high turnover. Hint - Area Sales Directors but it doesn't stop there.

    I have been working at CONMED Corporation

    Pros

    Lots of variety in the work for engineers.
    My boss is very supportive of my work.
    Pay is fair for the job description.

    Cons

    Senior Management is more worried about who to blame than solving problems.
    Zero cross functional team work.
    Management treats employees with distain and distrust. No interest in employee input.
    Management is very focused on how many hours are spent in the building, not on work results.
    Very little consideration of customer satisfaction or patient safety.
    No comprehension of regulatory expectations for a medical device manufacturer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to get rid of all the VP level managers in Colorado. They serve no purpose and manage poorly.

    Current Employee - R&D Engineer I in Largo, FL

    I have been working at CONMED Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are great, there are many senior engineers that provide excellent advice and mentorship for newer engineers.
    401k matching is great, 100% up to 7%.
    Full healthcare, reasonable cost
    Flexible working hours, overtime rarely expected or required
    Lots of vacation days, even for a brand new hire

    Cons

    Salary is much lower than it should be
    Career growth is slow, raises are small or nonexistent, and promotions even more so
    Job can be boring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Through 4+ different managers, almost all of them have been great people. They are reasonable with work load expectations, flexible with time, and always willing to help us or "bail us out" of troubles if necessary.

    I have been working at CONMED Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Several skilled, professional, positive coworkers

    Cons

    Nepotism at the corporate level. Make decision based on stock price- i.e. short term thinking. R&D budgets get slashed every year and there are such gaps in the product line that it is diffcult to sell. In addition there are no corporate contracts and our competitors have sole source agreements which shut the door on the possibility of selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck thru a temp service. People are friends and nice.

    Cons

    There's no way and pretty much no guarantee you will get hired on permantley.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's no advice to share here. They all have their heads so far up their butts they can't hear anyone.

    I have been working at CONMED Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Strong Leadership that truly cares about their employees.
    - Talented employees that are innovative and self-starters.
    - Solid benefits and awesome 401k match program

    Cons

    - Leadership is talented but doesn't like to communicate to the rest of the organization other than Operations
    - Need to focus more on innovation and talent development vs. compliance to regulations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more to employees. They really want to know what is going on with the organization. In the absence of communication, employees will create their "own picture" about the status and vision of the company.

    Very low rate of pay: I am an RN,BSN working at an LPN rate. All employees have no received a rise in 4 years. No professional respect or professionalism in the workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perform evaluations as stated in employee handbook. Do what you say you are going to do. Pay attention to your employees concerns, we are the only reason your company will be successful!
