    I worked at RS Medical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There isn't much I can say about pros. Some people there are nice to work with. They use to have a descent benefits package, that they've removed many of the benefits as time goes on.

    Cons

    Very unstable and unprofessional company. While I believe the company is professional with their customers, internally this is a very unstable company that crosses the border in terms of discrimination, work place harassment, and a host of other issues. Company is one of the most mismanaged companies I've ever worked in during my 25 years in the workforce.

    I worked at RS Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people, what's left of them. Nice campus.

    Cons

    Bad business. The DME business overall as an industry is NOT doing well. With that said, there are targets that need to be met and that's just not happening. Too much political maneuvering for a company of what 250. It's not a global company, so the maneuvering does not make sense. Robust dialogue? How about doing your job. Work/Life balance is not there. I don't recommend this place. It's sad, really. What could be a good to great. is going from fair to worse. The looks on everyones face says it all. Not a place to start your career. But a great place to end it…because they'll end it for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. Stop the political maneuverings. There's not much left for you to maneuver. Too many chiefs, not enough indians.

    I worked at RS Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -- Provided me with a lifetime's worth of anecotes about bad management.
    -- Salary was strong. (Only reason I joined)
    -- Apparently was a great place to work ca. 2000.

    Cons

    -- Outdated business model that simple fails in the modern regulatory and reimbursement environment.
    -- Frankly shocking lack of ethical standards, resulting in DOJ investigation and settlement.
    -- Core TENS product losing medicare reimbursements.
    -- Family owned and operated for most of its existence, nepotism and cronyism saturates every nook and cranny of its campus.
    -- Nastier and nonstop politics in a company of ~200 than in a Global Company of 60,000.
    -- Total lack of IT expertise or execution. Approximately 100 % turnover in the IT department.
    -- Hopelessly outdated processes and billing procedures.
    -- A HIPAA audit waiting to happen.
    -- Crippled and demoralized salesforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jon K. was a terrible move. Frankly, Meagan Medical and its patent portfolio may be a viable business entity. Put resources there. Abandon the core.

    The Current President has no idea what he is doing. He is quickly running the company into the ground.

    I have been working at RS Medical full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you have the relationships and desire, you can make good money with RS. The new direction of capital equipment and DME, is interesting and challenging. This job is about relationships. It does require setting up protocols and taking care of patients.

    Cons

    Bad customer service. Recently the company switched to an outside vendor and the results are poor. Also, the DME options are usually the most expensive per code and ICD9. Maximizing reimbursement. Not always the best for insurance and patients out of pocket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve customer service and widen the DME offerings to compete and offer alternatives at different prices.

    Pros

    Flexibility and a lot of activity.

    Cons

    High pressure, and especially when you work under someone else, they tend to take the blame out of you. Also, the corporate bigwigs change things all the time without giving any advance notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRAIN YOUR EMPLOYEES!
