I have been working at Conceptus full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Unique Birth Control device. Close to Sunnyvale and train station

Cons

Where do I start.
1. No new product in 10 years. VP of R&D has never delivered a product in his career.
2. Low pay. Will watch what time you come and go. No Flex hours.
3. Ore time spent in cover up than work
4. Lot of Drama in engineering
5. Lack of respect for outside the box thinking
Over all company with no future. The worst of the worst people FO and PK managing R&D.
I hate every day at work

    Pros

    The best device (bar none) for PBC for women who are done having children.

    Cons

    The good old boy club is alive and well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent lies in many areas, not just in your "familiar circles" - too bad you didn't get the memo.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2.  

    A multi-discipline position in the crowded field of elective birth control options.

    I worked at Conceptus

    Pros

    Essure procedure is unique and proven to be best-in-class. Physicians that do adopt the technology are very appreciative of your support.

    Cons

    Management constantly changing sales programs and setting unrealistic growth goals. Low reimbursement for physicians, elective nature of procedure and high deductible plans remain as huge obstacles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In 2012 Conceptus finds itself in a make or break position. Ten years on the market and still not standard of care. Low patient awareness. Widespread direct to consumer advertising initiative is the only thing that will work.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
