    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They paid well however you had to fight to get the pay. Negotiate at the start or you will get nowhere.

    Cons

    The initial offer was over 10K less than what I was willing to start at. After a long and laborious negotiation process, I got what I wanted. Management has no clue what they are doing. Managers pay absolutely no attention to what their employees are doing. Performance reviews made this remarkably transparent. Nepotism runs rampant from the top to the bottom. Raises are substandard and promotions are next to impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Retire, let new blood in. Stop caring about an employees bloodline when considering promotions.

    Pros

    Work out of your house, make your own schedule, decent line of disposable products, great car allowance and all expenses paid. Great 401K and great benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of GPO contracts makes it hard to sell products. All the pressure is on you to perform. Little help from corporate or marketing. Competing against the giants 3M, Covidien and Cardinal Healthcare.

    Advice to Management

    Get out and support your reps. Land GPO contracts. Use Marketing to help support sales.

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time

    Pros

    ConMed will pay you a paycheck for as long as you work there.

    Cons

    Transitional changes have caused shortages of support. New managers have a disregard for current talent. The company is "churning and burning" great resources.

    Advice to Management

    Customers are the #1 priority at ConMed. Your employees are also customers. Treating your employees like customers would suit you well.

    I worked at CONMED Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No one really cares if you show up late or sleep at your desk. They hire people with no experience, so it is a good way to get entry level experience.

    Cons

    - Salary was very below market. - Management style was more outdated then the "technology" they use. - No transparency, never had any idea what was priority, what managements plan was - You can only move up / get promoted if there is a "company need." - No accountability. Decisions made by management behind closed doors without rationale, lower engineers supposed to agree and sign off these decisions with little or no confirmation. - Women are not represented well in engineering nor respected by management. Ex. Management stated "women are like Pavlov's dogs - easily trainable"

    Advice to Management

    Develop your talent. Don't promote based on last name. Treat women fairly.
