    Pros

    The great satisfaction to help patients improve the health and QOL. Exposure to the rest of medical devices industry, which is hard to get in

    Cons

    In comparison with the industry in SJM (now Abbott) Puerto Rico we have moré responsibilities, territories twice or triple the size and smaller compensation in the base salary. The turnover is high in big part for what I just explained

    Advice to Management

    The territories should be reviewed and considered being smaller in order we can be more effective against the competitors. Also base salaries are way lower than the industry (around 35% in average)our turnover rate is way higher than the industry rate.
