    Pros

    Great technical support group, most people outside of sales and marketing are competent

    Cons

    No ladder to climb, terrible inexperienced marketing group, technology is very outdated and will never keep up with new molecular technology

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where to start?? If you like being treated like you are not valued in a company and you understand you will be fired if you give your opinion, than you might like it here

    Pros

    Awesome atmosphere, smaller company, family type setting, everyone is nice and friendly. So many bad reviews on here, mostly from sales reps that couldn't sell, don't let that scare you away. Awesome benefits, i couldn't be happier.

    Cons

    Few issues with upper management, one senior director for sure should not be where he is. I''m not even sure what is job entails besides signing paperwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to re work upper management, directors and senior directors. Don't play favorites, be fair.

    Pros

    You will bond with other reps because only those who have lived through this nightmare understand how bad bad can be. Friendships made have become great sources of counseling and support.

    Cons

    Things are as bad if not worse than reviews posted on here. Any of the positive reviews we've been able to figure out which manager wrote to help boost the rating score. PTSD is very real.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit controlling everyone and allow people to do their jobs.

    Pros

    You get a company car.

    Cons

    Every negative review on this site is accurate. Sub par target products, inexperienced sales management, reactive to market, pay is ridiculous and most reps not making commission. Getting crushed by the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all sales management. Hire people who have experience managing sales people.

    Pros

    The rank and file are really great people. Those that are not tied to Sales and Marketing really love the company and are passionate about it.

    Cons

    Poor products and pipeline. Sales and Marketing are blamed for everything. The company pays poorly and is very cheap. Sales leadership is inexperienced in most cases, and do not know how to treat people. High turnover. You are only as good as your last sale. Very few people make bonus. Don't believe the total package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top level change is necessary. Stop over reacting to everything. New top sales leader needed asap.
