    Pros

    Great coworkers and open communication from specialist to specialist. You are able to create a relationship with your coworkers and sites, bringing a unique social responsibility to your work.

    Cons

    Management can be focused on numbers and not aware of a situation. Hard to receive support until the flames are licking at the "right" person's feet, even if you've been in them above your head for awhile.

    -Many manager and supervisors are not qualified and only got that position due to tenure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing all your highly skilled employee leave for greener pastures. Increase pay raises based on performance not on only allocating a certain amount to each group. Could be a great place but you decided to live with mediocracy.

    Pros

    Not a high-pressure sales environment - no quotas will be a positive for some. Great co-workers, great cafe, year end bonus for all employees.

    Cons

    Sales territories are getting smaller, which means sales bonuses, which were already decreasing with hospitals settled in with current vendors for ARRA, are also getting smaller.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for sales staff to naturally decrease over time, and stop hiring additional sales reps - at least until business picks up after ARRA.

    Pros

    The workplace is an open environment. The annual bonuses are nothing to sneeze at and the bonuses only grow dramatically every additional year you stay with the company. The people in management actually care about the quality of our product.

    Cons

    The proprietary language is a little difficult to work with at times. Initial pay is not competitive.

    Pros

    The profit sharing and stock options are impressive if you put 30 years into the company. I've never felt fear of layoffs or termination. Management will listen to your input and try to move you into a position that best suits you.

    Cons

    Pay is very low... Raises are almost nonexistent. Hours are flexible as long as you want to work 9-530. Promotions are also poor, they are promotions of responsibility and often not worth it. Being a "Senior Specialist" offers no more cash or benefits for the title. The positions are made up titles to compensate for zero vertical movement available in the company. All moves for those coming in unless some one dies or quits are horizontal movements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a disconnect between upper management and the troops on the front line. Middle managers are extremely hit or miss and can make or break your experience at the company. Most managers in my 7 year tenure are just above useless. They get in the way more often than not and love creating process/red tape.

    Pros

    The best health coverage-90/10, bonus every January.

    Cons

    Very low pay, raises not based on performance, big company that they try to run like a small company, no human resources so if you're unhappy there really isn't a neutral party to turn to. Way more travel than they lead on. Your happiness here depends on your group- some are great and some will treat you very poorly as a new hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More competitive salaries will help with retention. Promote based on ability and hard work rather than tenure or who outlasted others.
