    I have been working at ACIST Medical Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A growing, competitive company. Friendly staff. Great benefits.

    Cons

    From a field service stand point, it is not easy to take time off from work. There is no after hours or weekend coverage so you're on call 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful for field service and better for our customers if we had more field service coverage.

    I worked at ACIST Medical Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small company feel (in a good way)
    Everyone knows everybody
    Family Feel
    3 Unique Products
    Very fair compensation
    Good 401k

    Cons

    Although I didn't have to used the health benefits (I'm under my wife), I personally dislike the new age health insurance plans with HSAs and high deductibles. This isn't a knock on ACIST. I think most insurance providers are moving in this direction. My wife is a more traditional plan with co-pays and very low deductibles.

    Small companies come with large territories. If you can deal with the travel its really not an issue. I have a growing family and travel eventually became an issue.

    Pros

    I really enjoy the company culture and the management team.

    Cons

    The lack of people to cover some of the evaluations and follow up is a little difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Looking into adding a few more head count.

    I have been working at ACIST Medical Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is my first Industry job coming out of a Cath Lab setting, but so far it has been great! Working for ACIST has brought me in contact with lots of amazing people....not only within ACIST, but through traveling to other states and other labs. The people at ACIST have been nothing but friendly, helpful, encouraging, and positive in every aspect. Being new to this field I needed a lot of help, and my team, and the people at the home office, have always been available and happy to answer my questions.
    Also, working for ACIST has been very rewarding. Not only in the sense of bringing value to the company and other labs, but also with contests and prizes for hard work.
    ACIST has been a great start in the Industry side, and I don't see myself leaving or even looking for another job anytime soon.

    Cons

    Being that ACIST is a smaller company, there has been a lot more travel than I expected. Trying to cover evaluations and lab time with limited resources can be tricky....which sometimes leads to last minute travel plans, and extra time away from home.
    Also, it would be nice if our significant others were invited to the Global Meetings that happen once a year. it would ease up some of the travel tension and allow for our spouses to meet the people we work with and get a feel for our company.

    Advice to Management

    So far I feel that our management team has been great. I feel lucky to work with an amazing team and manager in my Region.

    Working at ACIST Medical has been the best decision I have made in my over 20 year career in medical device sales. The people are genuine and very committed to making their employees feel like family.

    I have been working at ACIST Medical Systems full-time

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers.
    Excellent pay and lots of vacation time and paid holidays. Full week off with pay during Christmas holiday week. Love it. Great workout facility on site!

    Cons

    Would like to have more cross training opportunities. My commute to Eden Prairie isn't fun . . . hate 494 construction!
    Wish we had a small cafeteria on site for lunches instead of bringing my lunch in every day, but it's ok I guess.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about a new location . . . we are growing out of this space. Thanks for everything! Love it here!!

    I worked at ACIST Medical Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Generous Paid Time Off (for US based company)
    2. Competitive Compensation
    3. Competent Colleagues (many of whom have left since late 2015)

    Cons

    1. Lack of Accountability - Company repeatedly downgraded outlooks between 2012 and 2016 with zero changes to senior management; Responsibility lies in part with parent company Bracco
    2. Listless R&D Organization - Company repeatedly failed to refresh primary product for >10 years; New product introductions were repeatedly delayed due in part to lack of urgency and direction; R&D roadmap was unstable
    3. Unproductive Culture - Regulatory organization had abysmal record of securing regulatory clearances; Operations organization made only timid changes to support shift to catheter-based products; Sales and Marketing organization promoted an uninspiring and anemic growth strategy
