    Pros

    An organization with high integrity. We hire people from other Med Device Sales Orgs who consistently say that KARL STORZ is rare in this industry in that we always try to do the right thing. Great co-workers. The tools are here if you want to thrive but it is on you to make things happen.

    Cons

    The overall (global) corporate structure is segmented. Every project has to be unique depending on which KARL STORZ organization you are working with

    Pros

    Good place to learn the medical device business. Benefits were great and competetive.

    Cons

    Still very family owned and influenced...and decisions are ultimately about preserving the Karl Storz name in their products. If you are planning to join KS, the company is a very marketing-sales driven organization and would, as a piece of friendly advice, to go in with that consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the true quality of the product and realistic deadlines for product launches.

    Pros

    Walk away with a few TRUE friends.

    Cons

    HR worst gossip train ever. They need to revamp several departments. No LOYALTY! Hope the lawsuits close the doors. Mr. Store is probably shaking his head in the grave. Legacy being ruined by a bunch of half wits! Security guard is a joke - trying to always get in someone's panties.

    Advice to Management

    Must agree with earlier post fire everyone (almost) including yourself and do a true reorg. Yvonne B. AWESOME ~ Helen W. AWESOME ~ Dora F. AWESOME ~ some of the assistants AWESOME .... just to name a few!!

    Pros

    Attractive comp plan and benefits package.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunity; extremely poor morale due to a complete lack of leadership on the part of upper management. Lots of dysfunction wide out in the open and no one addressing it - both personal issues and professional issues. The skilled, talented employees are either already gone or preparing to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people, get engaged. Address the employees you know are not carrying their weight. Pay attention to these things and take action as needed. Stop making things so personal - put aside who you like and don't like and start behaving like professionals instead of children.

    Pros

    Good education & training for a profession in the medical device industry and sales experience to healthcare institutions and physicians. .

    Cons

    Karl Storz Endoscopy is "not to be trusted" in regards to your commission being paid in a timely manor.

    Advice to Management

    The German mentality here runs deep and your complete willingness to disregard talent and an individuals effort must change.
