Good opportunity to break into Medical Device Sales but horrible management at corporate level

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Territory Manager - Endosurgery Division
Current Employee - Territory Manager - Endosurgery Division

I have been working at CONMED Corporation

Pros

1. Foot in the door of medical device sales
2. Don't have to work all that hard
3. Attainable quotas
4. Like-able managers at Regional level
5. Products are priced competitively which helps overcome the lack of innovation

Cons

1. Management at corporate level is horrible - VP holds the purse strings TOO tightly. Example - haven't had a regional OR national sales meeting since 2008 - prior to that it was 2006.
2. Communication between corporate and field is non-existent
3. Compensation structure based on GP and not a fair assessment of performance.
4. NO opportunity for advancement unless someone retires or dies.
5. Incompetent trainer and overall insubstantial training program
6. Products are "me-too" for the most part
7. Back orders and product failures abound.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Restructure compensation to accurately reflect performance.
2. COMMUNICATE
3. Spend more time and money on R&D. Have something new and innovative for reps to sell
4. Force Frank to retire.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    not much to say. can't do an effective job when restrictions are in place. no one listens to the employees

    Cons

    would not recommend this company for anyone to work at. all ownership cares about is the money in their pockets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sit down and work with the employees at all the divisions to see what they go through just to get the job done.

    Pros

    Acceptable work life balance.
    Fairness of Management towards employees.
    Products are well received by customers.
    Very nice people to work with at corporate.

    Cons

    Poorly launched products, launching products and then trying to come up with a plan after the market has seen the product.
    Back orders and chronic product failures that lead to customer complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from GP based compensation. Move to a flat percentage of sales for comp plan. Also, bump up the base salary. This is embarasingly low.
