    Pros

    A lot of freedom, management is patient with the long sales process. They don't bust your chops often with your expenses.

    Cons

    Compensation plan needs drastic overhaul. Under average salary and commission resets every year after increasing throughout the year. Hard to maintain a lifestyle. Way too many repetitive spreadsheets.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the sales force more. With such a long term sell, long term employees would be hugely beneficial to making headway in the market. Way to much turnover. Quit wasting so much time with pointless and repetitive reports and spreadsheets.

    Pros

    Unlimited Expense Account without any accountability. Great atmosphere if you think free lunch on Friday and Semperfun days are great company benefits.

    Cons

    The list of Cons resembles a company on the path to arrogance and socialism. The inability to hire effective leadership is record breaking. They continue to hire from outside the company and outside the direct industry. Many directors are clueless to develop any sense of leadership and understand what distribution is truly about. They micromanage and hire military graduates whom demand and dictate versus develop leaders to either advance careers or skills. The training program is absolutely useless and the marketing department will train you to adhere to the sales strategy they employ or you will be banished from the inside clicks that exist in the corporate office. The Executive leadership acts like everyone is family till they turn on you and limit your financial success through devious corporate house account schemes to take commissions away from you and pad their own pockets. The company in the past 3 years has hired and fired or driven off countless sales leaders who could have made an impact if the executive team was aware of their true market potential and not blinded by their lack of vision.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to look around and understand what the market can provide. Don't let your inept directors run the show as if they know what the true direction is within the market. Hire competent people who truly care about building people and actually know what a true leader is designed to do not what some book said they should do or some DISC assessment said they should be like. Open your minds to the reality that gloves are insignificant to the world but a required necessity. Once you realize how a true market share program and strategy should be rolled out hire as many talented leaders as you can don't rely on phycholgist babble with DISC assessments and truly drive business and pay their their true worth not what you think is your idea of fair. Until then you should fire all sales people and justify the incredibly low salaries you offer and reinvest that cost savings into a real marketing program and sales strategy.

    I worked at Sempermed USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company brings in lunch on Fridays. They provide detailed training for new hires. This company likes to drink and party. They give out an award each year to the person that can drink the most, stay out the latest and still perform at their job the next day. (Big dog)

    Cons

    This company lacks goals and direction from upper management. If you work here, you have to be comfortable with chaos and constant contradiction from management. Overall Employee morale was very low at this company. The working atmosphere lacks professionalism and Is negative. There are frequent yelling outburst and even the use of profanity in meetings. There is a very high turnover rate each year at Sempermed. The overall income is also much lower than promised. The Sales reports are also off. Sales reps complain about missing sales tracings and lack of compensation for their account closes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new managers. It is a bad sign if your entire team quits within 1.5 years. This is a common theme amongst all divisions of the company. The managers here have big egos that interferes with the way they communicate.

    Pros

    At Sempermed, we are provided a friendly and cooperative workplace. They bring in lunch for the employees every Friday and we have Semper Fun Days as well as other company events. They provide great benefits as well as being a charitable. We are a growing company especially in our capacities for production over seas.

    Cons

    I do not see have cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great training of your employees and rewarding them for their efforts.

    I worked at Sempermed USA full-time

    Pros

    Very understanding management team when it comes to family. Fun atmosphere. If you work hard, you will gain a lot.

    Cons

    Most of the management is great and can be trusted, there are a few that seem to be very rude, somewhat manipulative and only out for their own self interest

    Advice to Management

    To keep morale up, be sure to keep your eyes open on some of those unstable "managers". While it is good that you support and back your management team, you should really listen to what other colleagues and employees are saying about them and take some corrective action. It will help you retain good, hard-working employees who care versus the others. These managers are causing major turmoil both in the field and internally and causing good employees to leave your company. It's a shame because I know others who have left would have liked to have stayed, but couldn't.

    Pros

    Very good compensation and benefits. Enjoy the people I work with. This company does a lot for the community via charitable donations, etc. And for employees by way of company events and recognition.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement depending on the position you are in but that could change down the road. Small company mindset will not work as well as the company continues to grow. There is a bigger need for structure, including policies, procedures and training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the feeling of "us and them" (Leadership Team and everyone else). Start communicating more to everyone else and listening to what everyone else has to say and then institute positive change that may improve employee morale, results and the bottom line.

    Pros

    This is a growing company with a desire to move forward in the industry. They do offer benefits, excellent perks, and a competitive salary. They want their employees to succeed in their business.

    Cons

    There are clicks at SempermedUSA. If you do not conform to these clicks, they can make your work experience very difficult. This type of work environment lent itself to gossip and backstabbing, which for a smaller company makes for unhappy employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management only listened to their Managers, they should listen to the little people who actually performed the work and this company could go far.

    Pros

    There are not many companies where you get the opportunity to truly work with the CEO and CFO, both of whom are brilliant, and meet the CEO of your parent company and share a few cocktails. They truly want you to love your job, and if you do well, they will treat you pretty well. There is a very fun atmosphere, and you make decent money.

    Cons

    A very volatile market and ever changing market, and a very bad level of communication on the market. Many backorders and price changes, but mainly this is due to the market. Unfortunately, they tend to hire negative people, which brings down the team atmosphere. a little behind the times, and they make trends, they follow them

    Advice to Management

    Pay better salaries, offer raises, and be an HR person would do you wonders.
