    Pros

    Benefits are good, vacation time is great (but I hear that is being cut)

    Cons

    Poor Management, Very high turn-over, almost impossible to hit quota due to attrition of physicians. They have had 3 new Sales Directors in as many years and the position is vacant again, That alone should tell you something.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, look at the turnover rate. Crunch the numbers, it would be easier to lower quota so employees actually have a shot at a bonus rather than creating a revolving door of mediocre sales professionals. Pay a decent base salary. How many people have been lost thanks to the low salary offers? Boost morale, set attainable goals and employees might actually hit their numbers and stick around for a while.


  2. Quest pays well, but its highly bureaucratic and painfully slow in decision making.

    Pros

    Quest pays well & has good benefits. I have gripes, but overall Quest is a good/solid company with a stable/predictable work environment (which is all some people look for).

    Cons

    Prepare to work like a dog in the corporate office. Don't expect raises or good bonuses anymore because the company is missing targets. The status-quo is celebrated and encouraged. Even the CFO demands "no changes" to the work product he receives to the point that the staff lives in fear of getting the font or spacing wrong (this approach results in limited efforts to reengineer processes, and tends to lend material support to status-quo employees). Even though I have some gripes, I still have great respect for Bob Hagemann & much of his staff.

    Advice to Management

    The company seems to prefer hiring status-quo folks, hence the 1980's approach to finance management. I don't understand this, they could shake this up & double productivity.
