    I worked at Smiths Medical ASD full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Not a whole lot. The people were nice and the sales team were dedicated.

    Cons

    Company goes through layoffs and does this by giving undeserved poor reviews then puts the employee on performance plans while simultaneously assuring that the employee has no way of actually clearing the activities. This gives them the opportunity to refuse any severance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people right or close the business. You already have a very poor reputation

    Pros

    Regional Managers are great but squeezed in so many directions.
    Benefits are good and work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Prior senior management was mostly eliminated after several poor decisions. It took the board three years to get rid of them Unfortunately, they left behind a mess for everyone to clean up. No Growth here because they have no new products in the pipeline. Previous senior management fired the R&D engineers. Morale is terrible There is no real money to be made for salespeople within the organization. The comp plan is designed for entry level sales reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smiths Medical use to be a great company but now focuses only on saving expenses rather than investing in R&D and human resources. New senior management has a big task to clean up the mess. It will take about three years for Smiths Medical to regain growth in the market.

    New leadership is trying to make Smiths a great place to work. Time will tell if it will be successful, but I salute the effort.

    Departmental silos make it difficult to work together. Not everyone is working toward the same goals.

    Get everyone moving in the same direction.
