    Pros

    recognize people for doing good work
    Will do anything to keep their commitment to the customer
    Great comrade among field employees
    Fabulous products that truly enable clinicians to take better care of patients

    Cons

    tend to be disorganized and just send anyone anywhere to get the job done so that they can collect the check
    field employees do not get any regular home office days--most travel Mon-Fri almost every week
    Some upper level sales do not make Professional Services feel that their role is valued and Professional Services are rarely recognized by sales for the hard work they do
    too many clinical people involved in projects. Projects are much more successful if the same clinical person does all of the work from beginning to end. Customers suffer due to this.

    Advice to Management

    Don't commit to ridiculous timelines that cannot be met
    Commit to make every effort to have same team on project from beginning to end, especially the clinical consultant
    Look at how Professional Services does things now compared to 5 years ago and try to go back to the way it was. Much better for the customer and the employees.

    Pros

    Great products and technology with a vision to integrate other technologies. CEO who does care about the ability to help others.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional sales model and questionable sales management

    Advice to Management

    Find a direction and employ appropriate sales management team in the healthcare capital equipment market. The hunter farmer scenario is not setup appropriately.

    Pros

    People are great, good company, good benefits.

    Cons

    There are some things that can and should be addressed to get the company moving along better than it is, get rid of people who aren't doing what they should and are making things worse.


  10. Can be a good place to work depending on which department you are in.

    Pros

    The support Department is probably the most organized team. Credit to very smart and capable mid management.
    Outlook for the company is stable, very loyal customers.
    Work/life balance seems to be very good.

    Cons

    Company is small but moves really slow. Outdated technology is here to stay.
    Upper management doesn't know how to manage the new acquisitions, just making things more confusing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on product. Focus on the users. Stop acquiring company that have little value or with immature products.

    Pros

    Long term employees seem motivated, but it's going to be tough for them to transition to new products.

    Cons

    Company is set up to design, build, and sell legacy product in a changing market.
