    Pros

    Many quality products, lots of great people, people care about the companies success. It's great knowing that every day someone benefits from our products our customers and their patients.

    Cons

    Management not always committed, willing to stay the course. Amount of reporting has grown considerably, for a sales rep it seems like a tracking system that takes precious time from each day. Training requirements are sometimes out of line for positive growth, 1-2 years out of date. Lots of evening and weekend time spent in field to make quota. Company has tried hard to promote from within recently, about time to recognize your team properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the time commitments it takes to be a successful rep and lighten the load when and wherever possible. Limit training to pertinent growth objectives related to what's happening in the field now not 2 years ago. Look at your people to see what they are doing what they are capable of there are many outstanding employees in every area. You must find better ways to recognize them or risk losing them to another company.

    Amazing Products, Great Pay, very Stressful

    I have been working at Nobel Biocare

    Pros

    Very good Pay, good benefits. Name recognition. Top of its industry. Amazing products that almost sell themselves. Amazing incentive trips. 1st class!

    Cons

    Lots of reporting. Not so good Regional managers. Bad customer service. Horrible Territory Support. TS is always rude to the reps. Rude to its customers. Ed & Training short staffed. New bone product is a tough sale. Did I say lots of reporting?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more of a coach/mentor so the team is motivated to work for you to get through the sometimes tough days. Don't let your reps look bad in front of customer.
