Pros

Good location. Excellent training. Proud to sell the product. The employees really care about their patients. Monthly incentives. Casual Fridays.

Cons

Far under appreciated. Far under paid. Would be a great job if you made 10k more.

Advice to Management

Combine the DTA & DTC position and pay them 50K base. Your employees will take the position more seriously and feel more appreciated. Your employees are poor.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Company is interested in community-based work, encourages employees to volunteer. Good pay unless you're in customer service. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Here we go again--another round of layoffs and cronies running around trying to figure out how to protect themselves and their favorite followers. Another round of subjective "fair process" (there is no process) on who gets let go this time. Employees are forced to spend time again worrying, and protecting their turf-- instead of adding value to their jobs. This (now) annual process is not a result of true leadership--it is just picking low-hanging fruit (heads) to make the numbers look good for a time. How about some true leadership and totally reorganizing this fat, top heavy, bloated, inefficient mammoth of an organization? Seriously, stockholders, ask how in the world this organization is going to be able to sustain itself in the long term? What is the span of control for leadership---how many (all levels) VP's, Directors, Program Directors are in the organization? I'm surprised the company doesn't implode on itself with all the weight at the top!

    Advice to Management

    Need to reorganize the entire company--it is completely inefficient. Too fat at the top--not sure how anything ever gets done (unless it's recreating the same projects year after year by the same leaders who have been with the company for many years or entire careers). Decision making is insanely slow and innovation is adversely affected to be competitive with other med device co's. Too much turf protection, not enough sharing of information. How in the world can this continue. Stop using the bandaid fix every year.
