    Pros

    The work environment was great. They are working hard on keeping their software as current with government regulations as possible to provide the best product for their clients.

    Cons

    Some of the long-term staff are not as supportive of the changes as they could be.

    I worked at HealthTronics (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    HITS has some good people to work with. Pay is highly competitive, especially for the Midwest. Good benefits. Good work life balance with flexible work from home accommodations.

    Cons

    HITS has a lot of politics and numerous cliques. The company has changed owners and direction several times. Many of the best staff and leaders were forced out. Open hostility between the UroChart and Meridian teams. Management says they want honesty but punishes those who speak up or disagree.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the cliques. Stop hiring and promoting your friends while firing those who are not part of the clique.

    Pros

    Pays better than most companies In the area. Free coffee, free soda. Decent office facilities. Awesome catered holiday party. HITS is a good place to gain some experience in Healthcare technology that may help you find your next job.

    Cons

    The following represents my opinions. As with any review, these are not statements of fact but are personal beliefs based on this reviewer's experience. There are two distinct business units in Healthtronics each with their own leadership teams. This review refers to Healthtronics Information Technology Solution, also known as HITS. HITS is run independently from the rest of Healthtronics. HITS has gone from a great place to work to a highly political culture that makes Tina Turner's "Thunderdome" look like kindergarten. It is a cut throat, back stabbing environment where personal alliances and inappropriate relationships matter much more than what you have to offer or accomplish.. The two main sites are in NJ and MO and they despise one another. Each site is continuously trying to undermine the credibility of the other. The leadership team members are all focused on empire building and WIFM rather than on customers or employees. Several come from big pharma and are clueless about the business. Integrity or trying to do the right thing is a career liability at HITS. The few caring leaders from both sites have all left or been pushed out in the past year. The remaining leaders are mostly sociopaths who care only about their bonus or title. Decisions can not be made without endless meetings and then the opinions of only 2-3 people matter. Leaders and staff who cause the most damage to the company wear Teflon suits. They are quick to throw others under the bus and the GM simply goes along. Anything you say to HR can and will be used against you. The technology is stale. Nothing is delivered on time. Customers are not happy. The new owners care only about short-term profits so innovation has been quashed and benefits reduced. There have been layoffs in the past year. Good, accomplished, highly qualified people were pushed out in favor of the yes men and inexperienced cronies who share the same town, Alma mater, church, running club, bed, whatever. Rumors of further layoffs or outsourcing leave everyone in a constant state of fear. Stay away from HITS. You have been warned.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the empire builders and yes men. Acknowledge and deal with the inappropriate relationships. Listen and value those who care for the business and the people of HITS more than themselves.

    Pros

    There is so much room to learn and grow at this company and they allow you to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Most challenging is having a healthcare worker driving a 18wheeler. I don't believe that is where his/her skills are best deserved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support medical staff and hire a truck driver to transport the equipment not the clinical workers.

    Pros

    Allowed reps to work their territory without micro managing. Management is there when needed as a resource. Compensation was great!

    Cons

    A lot of changes in 2013 at the Enterprise level causing some nervousness. I think that's all cleared up now and the vision is pretty clear moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on research and developing new products.

    Pros

    I have a good manager. They seem to respect work-life balance. They allow you to work at home if needed. They care about the employees.

    Cons

    There are quite a few people around who have had their jobs for a long time. They act very 'entitled'. Their major concern is any change to their employee benefits, not how to be more effective as a company. We have just been sold again. The times-they-are-a-changin.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight. Too many people act like they are owed their jobs. JAMES WHITTENBURG IS NOT CEO OF HEALTHTRONICS and hasn't been since 2011- when Endo bought Healthtronics. It has been sold again. It's complicated!

    I have been working at HealthTronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Treated like an adult. Caring manager that is available by text/email/phone when needed! Base pay is salary and not per case/per hour. So some days I am out early and home late and other days I'm out late and home early:-) The physicians depend on the tech to be professional. You cannot buy that, you have to be that. The company does a great jog of finding professionals to fill the positions in the field. Working independently and with autonomy to do what is right for the patient, the physician, the company and myself (in about that order) is what I enjoy the most Love this field position compared to sitting in a diagnostic suite waiting for the next ER STAT

    Cons

    The company has been bought and sold a few times. No real direct effect on worker bees in the field but we have lost some great folks back at HQ. Up for sale again in 2013. Benefits get reduced when the company goes up for sale each time (is how it feels). COLA's are not consistent. Bonus structure recently changed. Previous system I had no control over how to get to a bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Software used in the field needs to be evaluated for ease of use. Right now it is a PIA with data fields in the 'wrong' order. Not easy to jump between pages (even though the last update has this feature). Just b/c we are up for sale (again) quit skimping on the tool that makes you the $

    Pros

    Great benefits. Flexible work schedule (when requested.) Many activities to get employees involved outside of work. Pro-family.

    Cons

    Compensation is low, compared to the market. Management and HR is not helpful in solving problems that are brought to their attention. They ignore the issues and hope they go away. Political games that is allowed to continue "because that is the way it has always been." Much dependency on processes and procedures, preventing creativity or innovation among employees. Training (outside of process reading) is not adequate. Culture and value is good as it's written, but poor as it is actually implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate the problems brought to your attention to your fullest capacity, especially listening to the input of ALL employees. It only takes one bad apple to ruin the entire bag.
