    Pros

    Able to work your own schedule and manage your territory. Great training for new reps - well thought out and provided a great deal of knowledge based on what we were selling.

    Cons

    Mgmt changes regularly; comp plan changed 3 times in 18 months making it impossible to hit goals, let alone exceed them. Starting base pay was........a pittance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your reps like "dime a dozen" employees. Set a commission plan that is actually achievable and don't punish your reps for things they are not responsible for - patient turnover especially.

    Had the opportunity to give patients a better quality of like.

    Pay is terrible. The company doesn't invest in there people. Office was a joke and never had of pulse ox to take care your patients in a timely manner. Equipment they use is very low quality and causes a lot of issues. Upper management over promises and under delivers.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your team and let them know they are respected and appreciated. Pay your staff better and you will get better quality employees and less turnover.

    I worked at Pacific Pulmonary Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience networking with health care providers and other reps in the medical industry. You learn a lot about the healthcare system, especially insurance companies and Medicare.

    Cons

    Your success depends on your territory. If you are in a region where the company has solid insurance contracts, you can be highly successful. On the other hand, if your state lacks solid insurance Contracts you're doomed no matter how hard you work. Insurance dictates the punt of business you can keep and the company does not take that into account when measuring your success and coming Up with a fair compensation plan. Do research on your territory and insurance contracts before taking a job with PPS or any DME for that matter. Also, company lacks services competitors provide which makes it hard to stay ahead of competitors. Wouldn't recommend DME industry of you're in sales. Too many outside factors you can't control limit your success. No chance of making presidents club if you are in a state with no contracts and good luck earning commission at that.

    Advice to Management

    Work on gaining solid insurance contracts nationwide. Contracting team is severely lacking. Also, hire RTs to do patient set ups like other successful DMEs are doing. Evaluate each state and state individually. Do not compare states/reps with hardly any insurance contracts to those with multiple solid contracts.. Of course a rep will have great numbers if they can take every plan thrown their way. Come up with a fair compensation plan for those in territories with hardly any insurance contracts.

    Pros

    If you have good relationship with a scribers and get business you have a job. Sell enough service and you could be promoted.

    Cons

    Push for business. At all costs. Thousands of miles on personal car. Produce quickly or else. Little useful training and focus on tactics that felt it bordered on badgering physicians.
