Pros

-people at the bench level are pleasant to work with.
-people at the lower level are technical and knowledgable

Cons

-collusion between people in upper management designed to undermine others efforts;

-lack of accountability, responsibility by upper management "Lead by Consensus" philosophy;

-decision making is done by consensus. If you disagree with the consensus (2-3 people in upper management) you are labeled a "problem";

-management approach is to take the shortest, highest risk route rather than the "right" approach. Often make decisions predicated on time lines rather than "correct/industry standard"" or "ethical" approach;

--promotions through Nepotism

Advice to Management

Foster a culture of diversity in opinion & experience rather than going with the corporate "Bobble Heads"

    Pros

    Good products, decent salary and bonus, territories are manageable, training not to cumbersome, products are received well by docs. There is tenured reps so not dealing with young inexperienced reps.

    Cons

    Poor management lots of turnover, 401 k is not good, company is set to be sold just waiting for it to happen. Hard to sell product in heavy Medicaid and Medicare areas.

    Better manage care
