    Pros

    -You earn great money if you work hard (speaking as a sales rep). It's that simple.
    -Take a negative review written by a disgruntled driver/technician who can't spell or use proper grammar with a grain of salt.
    -Management is excellent. The "good" employees know this.
    -We are always one step ahead or real close behind the daily changes of insurance companies.
    -Additionally, we won all our bids, meaning we made it through the hardest times Medicare could throw at us. There are very few DME companies around with our reputation

    Cons

    You have to be incredibly thorough with each patient, from referral to delivery. However, that's the job. Frustrations lie in the world not revolving around you, but diligence with follow ups and relationship-building solve these problems for the most part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Kicking the butts of the few people who go through the motions and/or don't understand the urgency of our top products (PWCs and Back Braces)
    -Same day preauth PWC submissions or pay for approvals.

    Constantly striving for better ways to do things. If any company will make it (see "Cons"), they should.

    Lots of troubled waters in this industry - many companies going out of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful to not be more loyal to a pet-project employee that the interests of the company as a whole.

    This job is a stepping stone to get your feet planted. Keep looking if employeed Besure to now get stuck in the same position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the drivers its the front line of your company. Ask employees for advice on methonds and actually consider the good one. Acknowledge the good workers and value them. Get some engineers out and get some standard times on standard procedures. Also teach Schedualers how to schedule. Company has potential of alot more and is growing but be careful of losing good workers who can help instead of losong one who can also help you go under. Stay away from possible fraud is my last statement.

    Pros

    Good place to start your medical device career. Nice people that work there who mean well. Unique strategy. Potential to make more money (if you can afford to gamble your time). Nice company values.

    Cons

    Low base salary, continuous changes with government laws that will directly affect you regularly, high insurance rates with lousy benefit options (especially for families), it's a small company so your job could be terminated within a sneeze without a heads up. As you'll be in charge of all of your own paperwork so you getting paid on a sale can sometime depend solely on how fast a doctor will sign your paperwork (which can and will takes months sometimes). Takes 2 months for you to receive your commission payout from months ago. You should already know already that in this industry, you work sun up to sun down! Company value don't mean squat when your not bringing in the bacon (and, you should already know this about the industry lol).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your sales force and better adjust to market changes in the different markets (which in most markets, there are a lot of outside forces and politics involved).

    Pros

    The potential is there to make good money.

    They give you the freedom to be creative while finding your leads and marketing your brand.

    Cons

    Poor training and sales support

    They don't tell you that power wheel chairs have a very poor reputation in the medical community. A majority of doctors look at Power Wheelchair companies as "middle men" that are over charge Medicare and try to take advantage of senior citizens.

    Healthcare reform saw that Power Wheelchair companies were getting paid too much to be middle men, so they cut the reimbursement for these companies. Because of this the compensation plan for sales reps changes frequently, usually unfavorably.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your reps the tools they need to win.
