    Pros

    Great salary, great coworkers. Can live where you want.

    Cons

    Expected to work 60-70 hours a week sometimes more depending on how much travel is involved. Worked on an east coast schedule- management that supported the west was on the east coast.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the field and do the job a month..or a couple weeks. Understand the territories and factor in time spent driving, flying, etc.

    Pros

    Benefits were good, including on site gym, awesome cafe, good pay, beautiful facility

    Cons

    Devious local HR, manager plays favorites, director is oblivious, bosses on both sales and marketing sides. Work is like going to high school everyday with "mean girls" running the show.

    Advice to Management

    Bard Care is the "Hotel California:. You can check-in but you can never leave. Promotions to other sections? Forget it. Lateral move request? You're out!

    Pros

    Travel, interaction with hcp, great colleagues, they believe in a work hard play hard culture. Sales appreciates the clinical aspect tremendously.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, too many non tenured in leadership, while advancement is great it comes with a price when those in charge are insecure about those they manage and want employees who only say yes.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about yourselves and focus on the team.

    Pros

    Salary is decent, benefits are good. That is it for the pros, but I need twenty words to fulfill the minimum.

    Cons

    Way way too much work and no process documentation in Supply Chain to train with. Everyday is a new adventure in learning how bad the process' are and how much manual work is done to compensate for it. Forget about having a life out of work, I work every night until 9 or 10 just to barely keep up. They are interviewing for positions in Covington now, they will say what they know you want to hear to suck people in. Be smarter than the rest of us, say no.

    Advice to Management

    It is not always everyone else's fault. You as management are primarily responsible for the current situation you are in. Take responsibility instead of covering your own butt.
