    I worked at Cyberonics full-time

    Pros

    small enough to be heard if you present yourself in a way management respects. East Coast vs West Coast mentality can sometimes be an issue for work/life balance and goal setting (very populated areas vs less populated areas and much more windshield time)

    Cons

    Seems like most of upper management all came from Forest Pharm. It's a little weird.

    Advice to Management

    Goal setting is an ongoing deal, in concert with reps. Gaining or losing 1 phsysician in a less populated area can make or break that quarter and the next several. I transitioned several seasoned physicians, trained at Med schools, out to other areas of the country which benefited the reps who 'caught' them but never benefited my numbers yet I spent time grooming them. It's a team effort, some way to encourage/recognize that effort would be great way to encourage communication across territories and not lose a physician ready to really spread their wings after finishing training.

    I worked at Cyberonics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Product management were solid. Products are some of the best found in the cv or's. The equipment has always been regarded as the best.

    Cons

    Pathetic sales management. They have ruined a once great company and now manage by intimidation. Upper management have lost customer trust and trust of field sales. Arrogance now rules.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the upper level CP management and get folks in that actually have a realistic approach to working with people.

    Pros

    The Houston office is full of helpful, friendly people with above par administrative skills. They were always cordial and would go an extra mile to help you if necessary. The pay is good and the work-life flexibility balance aspect is exemplary.

    Cons

    Working in the field with 2 of 3 mid-managers with prima donna attitudes creates an environment of non-communication, miscommunication and distrust. Chastised for actually doing my job per spec by those 2 managers who should've but never reached out to me first and one of them would either have me wait longer than necessary to coordinate our efforts or not respond at all. This was typical as we all worked on a project with a deadline as exaggerated self-importance overruled common sense with a condescending arrogance.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to stress "working together" and timely responses to inquires during seasonal projects. Hard working contractors with a project completion deadline deserve to be treated with more respect and consideration in the field by middle management prima donnas.
