Pros

The company has a level of integrity and respect for employees as they do the patients that is admirable. I come from pharmaceutical sales where there are companies I couldn't say the same about.

Cons

There is a lot of dependence to be available on weekends, odd hours, but it's not often that you actually have to go out and work. But you do need to be available at least by phone. The pay doesn't seen fair. Someone in the Bay Area would make the same salary as someone in Arkansas or even Oregon where the cost of living is sometimes less than half the cost of living in the Bay Area. I think this is grossly unfair.

Advice to Management

Adjust pay for cost of living and make sure the level of work is balanced with co-workers.

    Pros

    The pay is OK. the interaction with customers and patients is rewarding. the products are worthwhile and the outcomes are excellent.

    Cons

    There is very little advancement opportunity; Sometimes management sets unfair goals and gives certain reps easy goals. Company is desperate for another product that gives them a reason to get up in the morning. Some territories are way, WAY to big!!!

    Advice to Management

    Budgets should be set with an across the board approach - taking the unfairness of playing favorites out of the picture. Adjust budgets based on territory size with the knowledge that a huge territory may have huge potential but only if you can get to all of your territory on a regular basis

  2. Apply if desperate for a job

    Pros

    Need a job badly!! Pays better then most jobs in area. They want you work over-time hours. They provide uniforms and a phone. You can provide a needed service for people in hospitals, that can not afford to buy the equipment.

    Cons

    Your personal life is over. On twent-four hour call at least three days a week. Poor management a big problem. They want you to work over-time hours, so they don't have to come in on their days off. You must carry a pager that is used with your company phone to accept orders. Regional service area includes the entire western Carolina area.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like they are human and stop expecting robot performance from people who need to work for a living.
