    Overall not what I expected. Many long hours and a fight to make any changes to grow your center.

    Pros

    They give people a chance to advance within the company, anyone's game to get a management position.

    Cons

    Long hours, not enough staff means you are always working your employees and your self to the breaking point leading to high turn over. Many promises are left unfulfilled, billing works against you upsetting many patients. Getting reimbursed for expenses takes a very long time plus low mileage reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow a business, you first have to sustain what you have. By paying thousands upon thousands in OT you are could have easily provided the extra body needed to satisfy current needs, allow for growth, reduce turn over and provide a better work environment for all.

    Pros

    Potential earnings can be quite good. Benefits are excellent. Changes in CEO, COO, VP are making the company more employee-friendly.

    Cons

    Management is on-call 24/7. Very little encouragement from Corporate personnel. Focus is always on what was not achieved vs. what was achieved. Not enough employees per center to complete all of the daily work required.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be required to spend at least two weeks per year in the field or in a center so they understand the challenges faced when staffing is kept to a bare-bones minimum.

    Compensation, accessibility, expectations, authorization on special equipment

    If you want your reps to be like Pharma reps, pay a better base salary, and drop the commission, do a bonus structure instead.

    Pros

    Great experience in the medical field and learning the ins and outs of this type of sales.

    Cons

    Every office is ran differently. Your manager can basically choose your income potential by choosing what accts you get and what "qualifies" commission.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to oversee more of whats going on in the offices ---- especially how territories and commissions managed.

    Pros

    - Uncapped commissions (requires detailed follow up to actually get paid)
    - Flexible work schedule
    - Good Entry Level Sales Experience
    - Paid Holidays
    - Minimal Supervision

    Cons

    Territory placement can make or break you. This company mandates internal competition within their monopoly, so you are calling on the same accounts, selling the same services, the only true variance is where your center is located. Management is not supportive (starting at the center level and marching all the way up the corporate ladder), they demand results, but can not offer any feedback on solutions to obtain these goals. i came to my manager on multiple occasions to brainstorm on ways to improve my numbers, and the only advice he could ever give was, 'just get out there and sell".

    Advice to Management

    Please take the time to not only train your employees but also continue to train and support them throughout their employment. An essential duty of management is to actually manage your employees, not just the business. Take the time to create positive relationships with them and work with them to constantly improve and become the best.
