Pros

Smith & Nephew has great employee training and field support. They offer great products and are highly competitive. This makes working easier, than with some smaller competitors.

Cons

It is a highly competitive industry. Sales can be up and then down. The nature of your clients is to always look for the next best thing. You need to have thick skin and an iron stomache to be successful.

Advice to Management

The corporate website needs much improvement. Demo needs to be increased. A service line would also be helpful. More collaboration between divisions is needed.

    Pros

    The company had very good benefits. No micro managing from direct manager. Employees are allowed to take vacation time with no hesitation.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care that the cost of their product is too high in a highly competative market with a lot of competition. Losing alot of accounts across the board because they are not willing to budge on pricing.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at the economy and where hospitals are cutting costs. It is often times out of the Reps controll when the company cannot or will not compete with lower prices from competitors.
