I worked at CONMED Corporation

Pros

Linvatec does have a competitive portfolio of products, and most of my coworkers were friendly and interested in working together.

Cons

Linvatec is disorganized, there is ultimately very little meaningful direction or assistance from corporate and especially from management. One other sales rep described this thought as "feeling like half of our day is spent trying to cover up incompetence at the corporate level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be more teamwork between sales reps, their managers, and upper level management. Linvatec would be as competitive as a company as it is with it's products if it harnessed it's collective skills and abilities.

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

    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

    I have been working at CONMED Corporation

    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.
