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

Pros

Executives ready and willing to travel and help in the field
Management clearly defined expectations and gave me the tools to exceed expectations
Annual Sales meeting was a blast. Classes were informative and helpful.
Good starting salary, was a great bonus system when I worked there, but I know those change every year.
When I was there I put in 6% for 401k they would match and gave a quarterly bonus 5% match so 11% added to 401k.
The industry is growing with the aging population
Industry leaders

Cons

Government is cutting reimbursement which puts pressure on price which is not Invacare's game
Insurer's capping DME purchases on policies
I had quite a bit of overnight travel which I would have preferred not to do
No CPAP business to speak of.

Advice to Management

When they cut salespeople, they tend to go to the bottom of the annual sales list. I've seen them cut high quality based on a single year performance.

    Pros

    There are some amazing people I will continue to call friends there.

    Cons

    Poor management. No communication from the US side. Risk adverse. Price wars never work.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your accounts. Don't always give in because there is something cheaper. Work on adding value to customer and accounts. Don't just depend on pricing and bundling to always get the sale.
