    I worked at MAQUET full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, new facility, pay is good

    Cons

    Under consent decree, over compensating for poor Quality system by adding too many checks and balances. Cannot get anything done due to constantly changing and overwhelming documentation requirements. Cannot get out of their own way and at this point they will come to a screeching halt if they continue down this path. QE's translate SP's per their personal preference and project QE's are shuffled constantly which eliminates continuity. Upper management constantly changing, no consistency...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what's going on at the street level, stop worrying about creating catchy slogans.

    Fire yourselves.

    Pros

    Great benefit. Base + commission + Medical +Dental+Vision benefits, company car, credit card and perks, strong company

    Job is very challenging especially working with hospitals are not the most collaborative group and when you're selling a highly commoditized product that's considered the ugly step child of the group

    Advice to Management

    Create a stronger and simpler system to penetrate into the hospitals armed with targeted questions with the target contact for optimal results

    Marathon meetings . Middle managers inept.. If you are looking for a quality performance improvement plan, then this is the place. Culture of selfie taking hipsters.

    Advice to Management

    Retire early before you ruin what is left. Take the money and run. By the way take your toadies with you.

    Pros

    Some great people working with world class products at the operational/sales level.

    Consent Decree with the FDA has resulted in 2 years of continual turmoil and senior management turnover in the business units (including at global headquarters in Germany).

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and figure out who you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. You know, the "vision" thing.

    Good pay. This is the only pro. Good company car. Good group of guys to work with in field. That's it.

    Stretched too thin. Poor management. Too many product lines. Guys have to work on way too many different types of equipment so many are not very good at any.

    Advice to Management

    Get proper amount of engineers in the field
