    Pros

    Well structured organization, with great sales training. Lot of support provided from managers and other team members.

    Company merged with Janssen, and split the focus between test strips and medication. As a result, reps were forced to sell a pharmaceutical product as well.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer the coaching support and training that you currently offer. Reps there have great support from managers, and it helps get strong results in the field.
