    I worked at BSN medical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I worked there, there was a fairly good work/life balance, fair management, pretty good benefits, and good job stability.

    Cons

    The company is/was private equity owned in which sometimes it felt like stretched targets were unrealistic. And some business units seemed to be in better favor with top management than others.

    Advice to Management

    I can't offer advice now as from my understanding, the culture has shifted and has new management from when I was there and would be unfair for me to judge or make suggestions for people I haven't worked for.

    I worked at BSN medical full-time

    Pros

    Company Car which was a Ford Explorer. Autonomy to manage my territory and manage my own business. No other positive aspects.

    Cons

    No direction from management. Products are "me too" products with no originality.

    Health benefits are horrible for a medical company.

    Career opportunities are available only for those with their head up managements rear end.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that has a clue... The Wound Care Business is on LIfe Support.

    I worked at BSN medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cutimed Sorbact (DACC) is a great product that should be everywhere in the market, but the strategy is lacking and the execution is even weaker.

    Cons

    Constant changing of leadership. No understanding of US health care business at the corporate level. Very weak year-end bonus program.
