    Pros

    Great Hours.Pay rate is not bad.

    Cons

    Management is very Toxic, dishonest. and things are swept under the carpet, lot of backstabbing goes on. But, Like the Los Angeles office.Management repeats confidential information that should remain in the Corporate office. However, Great Parties when supposed to be working.

    Pros

    You have lots of freedom, you own your own business and have respect from buyers and others at hospitals.

    Cons

    It can be a challenge to grow your commissions each month due to so many GPO contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel management is doing a good job at local DC, however C suites might need to rethink their goals and objectives for Wall Street investors.

    Pros

    Pay very well! Lots of over time!

    Cons

    No life! Expect employees to work 12 plus hours everyday! Management has no communication amoung employee's. In other words a high turnout rate of walk outs!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start thinking about employees and not your pocket!

    Some great people, but out-of-touch senior management and outdated, paternalistic culture.

    Pros

    Lots of awesome people willing to go the extra mile! Beautiful HQ building and lots of in-house classes at company "university" to expand your knowledge.

    Cons

    Although touted as a place for career growth, there are actually few internal promotions. The culture is focused on teaming, but there is considerable back-stabbing. Top management is out of touch with current employment practices. Still very much a white-male-dominated culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees by preparing them for future roles and taking promotion risks, so people don't have to leave the company for growth. Evaluate top leaders objectively to see where changes could drastically improve the culture.

    Pros

    Great people to work with in a pretty laid back environment most days. A lot of fun to be had while completing your duties. Travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Not a good work-life balance, long hours with no set time to get off. While management preaches teamwork there is nothing at all done to promote it. They are constantly trying to pit you against one another. Your pay will basically stay the same forever unless you get a promotion to another title, witch will only happen if you suck up to the right person. No matter how you perform or what sacrifices you make for the company in the end do not care about anything but there bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach!

    Pros

    If you enjoy working In filth, having you job threatened everyday, working 12 hours a day then this would be your dream job.

    Cons

    L.A. street gangs are more organized, drug dens are probably cleaner and crocked politicians have nothing on the stuff that goes on here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up and let someone else run this company! Or rent a bulldozer
