    I have been working at DJO Global full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Filled with pleasant people who are a pleasure to work with. Decent benefits, 401k matching. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Limited mobility. Far too many VPs. Staffing levels too low, most of the time is spent putting out fires rather than being proactive. Many staff on the verge of hitting vacation accrual limits as there are no backups. Obsessed with making numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the people needed to do the work.

    Pros

    Good company product and sales teams work hard to peddle product.

    Cons

    Lack of competent leadership and a power struggle between Human Resources and Management. HR is constantly pushing their perceived influence and power to manage people and processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop accepting status quo within mid-level management and start developing compentency based training for all leadership.

    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Philadelphia, PA
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at DJO Global as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent company comsidering the options out there, a typical American corporate sales job. A mix of direct sales emloyee reps, independent reps, and distributor reps.

    Cons

    Short term quarter to quarter management, typical American corporate sales job. Employee reps are unpaid and over pressured. Independent reps have the expenses and other loads of a sales force transferred to them and no benefits. Distributor reps are their preferred rep force, and although its legally set up, DJO controls the distributors. DJO has always had a conflict in channels, and probably always will. Their distributors bill insurance companies and Medicare- keeping the revenue generated by some, and also send the reps out to sell wholesale to many of the same customers. This is why they have distributor reps and internal reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no interest in giving advice, they're a little too self inportant to listen anyway.

    I worked at DJO Global full-time

    Pros

    Many of the people are great and the company is good at moving forward and being successful.

    Cons

    You will work hard, if you don't want a lot of work do not apply. In some areas it is a popularity game and HR is stingy with raises and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to some of upper management would be to respect the opinions and suggestions of the workers below your level. They are doing the daily grind an will have more insight to process improvement than you in most cases.

    I have been working at DJO Global full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, never at a desk, benefits are good, team members help support each other really well.

    Cons

    You get 20 emails a day that havr nothing to do with the product your selling. Management is constantly turning over. When that happens you get more emails. Pay is average at best. With reimbursement going down you have to do A LOT more sales then you used to have to. Which means more time on the road for less money. Also, I sold back bracing to a wholesale to a hospital and didn't get commission for the sale because it would of been "to high volume" to justify paying me commission on the account. That was the first and last time I pushed back bracing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Stop micromanaging and let your employees work. 2) if your going to keep salaries low then increase starting commission rates on the to keep people pushing sales or at least give quarterly bonuses for people hitting and/or exceeding quotas.

    Pros

    The individuals at DJO are committed to the organization.
    Individuals are a caring community of people helping numerous charities across the San Diego area.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication between C suite of leaders and the rest of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the communication between leaders and employees. Once a quarter is not enough for feedback on the pulse of the company.
