    Pros

    This company offers solid benefits with a great training program, albeit extensive at 3 months in length. The training program prepares their representatives well for time in surgery. The people coming from the Valleylab side of the business out of Boulder, are good people; however, those coming from US Surgical are not ethical and are only in it for their own advancement, no matter who they have to step on or eliminate as they move up.

    Cons

    This company has a very poor culture, which includes sales management intimidation, abusiveness in Management Style, especially from the manager in Indiana. To survive and protect yourself in this organization and with this manager, you MUST document all conversation and interactions with management. File complaints as soon as an issue arrises, or they'll move to termination without following the steps in the employee handbook. I've been a high achiever in every other organization I've worked for, yet was terminated within 2 weeks of getting a new manager. Think twice about leaving your current position to join this organization. The grass isn't always greener.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more credibility to your sales team instead of your management team. There's a well-known culture across the organization coming from the stapling/endo side of your business whereby intimidation and abusive actions are taking place and reps are afraid to file complaints for fear of retaliation.
