    I have been working at Biotronik full-time

    Pros

    Small company which is nice.

    Cons

    Very unorganized. Training is sketchy.

    Advice to Management

    Training is key. I feel as though it is pusned aside and something to finish as fast as you can.

    I have been working at Biotronik full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many pros... they have horrible benefits and have been in constant financial turmoil. People at the top still make money everyone else is disposable.

    Cons

    Unorganized company who have lots of financial issues. Many litigation issues as well. They pay about 20% under market and do not value employees

    I worked at Biotronik full-time

    Pros

    Repetitive and laid back if you are not interested in a challenge. The learning curve is steep for the first 9 months.

    Cons

    Poor management that do not treat employees with respect. Poor pay. Exhaustive on-call with poor compensation. Limited mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as adults. It is a salaried position and people are treated as hourly employees.

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

    Pros

    Commissions are high as a sales representative (if you can sell any of their products off-contract). Their products are also reliable. Can be a good stepping stone to get you to a better company like Medtronic, Boston Scientific, or St. Jude Medical.

    Cons

    Biotronik is unable to compete in today's landscape of medical devices. Since the days of real Doctor Choice are long gone...Biotronik must compete on a regional/national contracting basis. Considering the formidable competition out there they are losing market share and that directly affects the abilities of their sales reps to make money. Add to that the fact that they have terrible sales management in most markets and the future just doesn't look good for them. If you really want to be in the Cardiac Rhythm Management business for a long term career then Bio is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to contract regionally/nationally.
    Fire your Regional Sales Directors.
