    Pros

    Great products
    Nice company with great benefits - as long as you don't want to advance in career

    Cons

    No or poor clinical trials for evidence
    Huge problem with only Danish managers filling top positions for 1 - 3 yr assignments.
    Constant changes in strategy and direction creates a revolving door for US employees

    Advice to Management

    Company in the US is not run like an American company. Replacing Sr. Managers in US company with Danish managers only perpetrates the problem and the challenges of understanding how to penetrate US market.

    Pros

    Regional co-workers that are hard-working / loyal employees.

    Cons

    Micro-management. In-experienced upper management that is egotistical and unethical in requests to meet goals. Quota totally unrealistic. Position is presented to you with "guaranteed compensation" that you will never receive. 24hr/7 day per wk job having to drop everything to meet your customers needs which are not appreciated, but expected. Base salary is an insult for what is required of you. Clueless to reality in healthcare!

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. You have some quality employees that give so much and are unacknowledged. Stop micro-managing seasoned reps!

    Pros

    Lot's of divisions all over the world, if you are into moving a lot or a world traveler. Products help people.

    Cons

    Very internally focused and zero diversity in management. More energy spent on internal communication and upper level back patting than employee or customer focus. Coloplast no longer walks the talk. It lacks quality or adequate IT infrastructure. The company seems if it could actually start robbing the coins from the vending machine as a revenue or cost cutting scheme. Employees and Customers have paid the price for the high profitability this company enjoys, not innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus for real on your Employees and Customers. stop spending so much time in front of the mirror.

    Pros

    Great products that provide consumers better quality of life, nice people, good work/life balance. Good location, nice office environment.

    Cons

    Company views their worldwide business through Danish lenses - if if works in Denmark it'll work elsewhere. Very myopic approach, stifles creativity and ability to provide solutions. Much of management are from HQ while doing a "check the box" rotation - may not be invested in long-term. Culture is very hierarchical.

    Advice to Management

    Willingness to support your team when conflict with Denmark arises would be helpful. If you're a Danish ex-pat, help develop relationships between HQ and the US.

    Pros

    *Incredibly strong company (Most profitable med device company in the world, corporate growth surpassing market, #1 in the world in core business areas, #1 patient-rated med device company in the world)
    *Very flat structure meaning an absence of hierarchy and the opportunity to interact with all levels in the organization
    *Fast-moving and nimble organization. The company is open and accepting of new ideas to respond to evolving challenges.
    *Exposure to multiple areas and topics in the company
    *Flexible environment with many fun and relaxed-in-attitude coworkers (despite overloaded with work)

    Cons

    *Insufficient resources, across both personnel and systems; This helps reduce corporate cost base, but means each employee has a large range of responsibilities
    *Less developed or formalized career progression, unclear what the next step is or opportunity could be
    *Field sales runs the show, which challenges those in-house to be heard when countering sales' decisions

    Advice to Management

    *Clearer career path with more defined objectives instead of leaving it entirely up to an individual
    *Greater control around work requested of an individual
    *Focus on employee empowerment
    *Build an organization where in-house is seen as a partner to sales and not simply servants

    Pros

    I worked as a Temp for 8 months in the Customer Service area, calling customers about the new product called The Brava Elastic Barrier Strips. It is a great new product that helps the Ostomy customers. I enjoyed every day.

    Cons

    A little bit of a drive to work, but worth it. Located in not the best neighborhood, but they did have secure parking for us workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Great company.
