    Pros

    Good products, quick customs turnaround.

    Cons

    Lack of sets causing constant flight holds. Late set arrival can cause hospitals to get angry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build more sets and promote reps when they deserve it to stop them from leaving the company. Address your unrealistic sales quotas.

    Pros

    -Snack cabinets with junk food.
    -Nice gym and cafeteria on site.
    -Great location.
    -Cell phone (Blackberry also a con)

    Cons

    Biggest egos I've ever had to deal with! Pompous management that bases skill level off years of industry experience instead of actual knowledge. I saw a lot of extremely smart people shoved into a corner with no raise and no promotion because they weren't in the kiss-arse group, and didn't work every Sunday.
    You WILL work 60+ hours a week, and you will NOT be compensated for it. The culture is just another management tool like the A-Player attributes to keep you scared of losing your job. They have too many chiefs and not enough indians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horse! Promote engineers instead of just promoting execs.
    If your review doesn't even come close to your employee's self-review, it means there is a communication problem... not that the employee is mental.
