Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Smiths Medical full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I have learned a lot by observing the poor management, it is actually entertaining now...

Cons

Management and the way they treat employees, it is a company that doesn't care. The compensation plan is designed to withhold commission. The territory state and commision plan are misrepresented during the interview process.

Advice to Management

It takes employees to run a company....everyone is leaving and new hires arn't staying. Take a step back and reward your hard working employees.

    I have been working at Smiths Medical as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    As the local campus is only 500 people or so people, you can better see the "works" behind everything and have good exposure to processes that affect your department as well as processes your department could possibly affect.

    Cons

    Paperwork tens to move slowly because none of it is electronic. Because of that, everything else in general moves slower.
