  1. Regional Business Manager

    Former Employee - Southeast Regional Business Director in Roswell, GA
    Former Employee - Southeast Regional Business Director in Roswell, GA
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Exciting start-up culture in growth mode. Even as economy faltered, impacting elective procedures, management did their best to invest in the sales force.

    Cons

    Purchased by Bayer in 2013, significantly changing leadership and culture. Prior to that, political power structure was shifting to more cut-throat survival mode with inside executives.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing applicable after company was purchased. This is not a device company as much as a pharmaceutical company in scope and execution.

    I worked at Conceptus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and willingness to go the extra mile. Always a can do attitude. The new facility was a great building, top of the line.

    Cons

    Being sold to Bayer changed the culture and made it difficult to get things done. Many of the really good people moved on. The future is uncertain at best. Good team being broken up.

    Advice to Management

    Put the band back together at the next place. Great people that can do great things. Keep moving forward with the ideas to change the world.

    I have been working at Conceptus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with.Very good family-work life balance. Best IT team I have worked so far. Cutting edge technology. Very committed and sincere company and people.

    Cons

    Lack of a streamlined process. Needs more focus Marketing sucks, needs more exposure.

    Advice to Management

    Promote Essure as a standard. Introduce in developing countries for cheap, they need it more. More accountability from department heads especially Marketing.

    Pros

    Conceptus had great engineers and all were supportive in pushing each other to be the best engineer.

    Cons

    I worked at this company under the old management. The Senior management was mostly focused on marketing and sales. Very little financial and management support were provided to the engineering department. Then in 2012, the company has hired a new CEO. I hope that the engineering team, receives more support. All rating is based on the older senior management.

    Pros

    This was, and still is, the best product on the market for women who have decided their family is complete and who do not want to ever worry about getting pregnant. It is a game-changing idea, and innovative concept for women.

    Cons

    The second-in-charge was more concerned with putting buddies in cushy jobs and trying to sell off the company, than building the company and adding to the product offering. A classic case of someone who only knows one trick (which usually works), but "OPPS" - the economy tanked.

    Advice to Management

    Sell to another company or add products and grow

    Pros

    Unique Birth Control device. Close to Sunnyvale and train station

    Cons

    Where do I start. 1. No new product in 10 years. VP of R&D has never delivered a product in his career. 2. Low pay. Will watch what time you come and go. No Flex hours. 3. Ore time spent in cover up than work 4. Lot of Drama in engineering 5. Lack of respect for outside the box thinking Over all company with no future. The worst of the worst people FO and PK managing R&D. I hate every day at work

    Advice to Management

    Need more project. Your CR project is going to fail. Pay us more
