I worked at DePuy Orthopaedics full-time for more than a year

Pros

The compensation was competitive especially for an entry level position. The orthopedic implant product line was excellent and on the cutting edge.

Cons

From day one there was literally no training. Even after asking questions, I was directed to pamphlets to gather information on products. There was no guidance from management and most of the time managers were obsessed with their responsibilities and quotas and were unwilling to help lower level salesmen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would have been very helpful to have some sort of training program. It would have been even more helpful to be able to talk with an experienced salesmen about the product line and selling techniques.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, working on products that have a meaningful impact on the quality of peoples lives. Compensation is fantastic, and working for a company the actually believes in its guiding document (credo) has its benefits. The people at DePuy are really what makes the organization great - teamwork is excellent and people are generally happy and want to do a good job. The vast majority of management are seasoned leaders. You have the ability to take on as much as you want or as little as you want, but you will be compensated based on your performance so it behooves you to work hard.

    Cons

    Unfortunately as seasoned leadership leaves, they are generally replaced with young inexperienced MBA's if at all. These are great people, but they have to lean heavily on individual contributors to make sound decisions. As key individual contributors move on decisions are made slower and with less prudence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight hard to obtain the staffing that is required to be successful.

    High compensation. Once in the industry, you are in.

    Cons

    HIGH intensity and stress, naturally due to the medical industry and impact on lives of patients.
