    Pros

    There are very few real strong reasons to work at Bard compared to other companies within the medical device field. The most positive is that they do have a solid portfolio of products. In fact, some of them are the best in the industry. But, it's not just having strong products that make working at a company worthwhile.

    Cons

    The upper management team is dillusional about a number of things including quota, marketplace, motivation and economics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Negative motivation will result in short term gain, at best. But, it leaves long term anymosity.

    Pros

    Strong products. Well received by doctors.

    Cons

    Very inefficiently run company. Poor or no information systems. Not well suited for competitive nature of medical device sales. Need to improve competitive nature of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make territory managers more efficient. Free them up to increase time to sell.
