I have been working at Coloplast US full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Hours, benefits, job satisfaction! Great company ethos to improve the lives of our customers

Cons

Sometimes plans and processes are put in place with no forethought to the individuals impacted by the extra workload.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember we all work for the same company and what's right for one is right for all. If that is not the case do not implement or change what already works

    Pros

    Because it is a medium size company that has a new growth strategy (rather than a turnaround strategy as it was), there are many opportunities to take on new challenges and jobs especially if you are a 'go getter'.

    Cons

    I don't recommend it to people who like very large, structured hierachy or dislike change. It does change a lot and sometimes pretty fast. You need to be up for change - adapt and move on.

    I worked at Coloplast US full-time

    Pros

    High quality surgical products that equal or surpass competitor materials;
    Reps and managers are among most dedicated folks in device industry...12-15 hour days are typical and commitment to customers is epic;
    Decent comp plan, when it's left alone for a quarter or two....;
    Excellent fulfillment team/warehouse staff

    Cons

    Weak surgical training program (training: blocks of styrofoam to simulate body parts, etc);
    Rush reps into OR before they are trained adequately (some reps are selling/ in OR for weeks or months before training occurs);
    Tight budgets for hotels or promo work, despite length of average work day (<$500/mo);
    Zero interest at corporate on long-term patient outcomes/safety of implants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coloplast hires dedicated, intelligent people, most of whom have relationships with their most important customers going back years, if not decades. It would make more sense for exec management to create sales and product policy by engaging the experts they hire, rather than issuing edicts from a vacuum. Look around the home office sometime, and see what percentage of the staff has been brought in from the field....most medical companies thrive by balancing insider and outsider knowledge bases. Coloplast could excel by working to find that balance.
