    Cardiovascular division is being hit hard

    re-organizations happen far to often

    Advice to Management

    I think they are headed in the right direction. As for DSM's, trust your folks to sell and do their job. Dont focus so much on the extra garbage that might distract a PSS from selling and doing their job right.

    Pros

    Colleagues are some of the best people I have worked with in my career. Ability to telework. My manager is great - she is a great mentor, always offers suggestions, helps out when I am swamped with work and can perform my job if necessary - how many managers around can do that or would offer to help out?

    Cons

    Upper Management constantly changing operating models. Lots of talk about empowerment but when you empower yourself to change something your are smacked on the hand because you didn't consult management beforehand. Overabundance of SOPs - so numerous that it interferes with everything.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!
