    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

    Great products. A lot of bright focused people to work with.

    Revolving door, lots of lost knowledge due to poor management. Management is quite cumbersome and lacks experience.

    Do some work! Everyone's a manager yet all you do is go to meeting and push around reports that someone else ran for you.
