    I have been working at Terumo BCT full-time

    Pros

    Easy job as most accounts are tied up in contracts or are large national accounts. Mostly account management, not sales.

    Cons

    Declining market, constant reorganizations, no sales training

    Advice to Management

    Mentor account managers, pathways to advancement need clarity, improve the culture

    I worked at Terumo BCT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great customers, and they still love BCT. Lots to build on.

    Cons

    Inability to adapt to changing markets. Atmosphere of fear and adrenaline. Innovation discouraged by example. You can move sideways any time and anywhere. They are loathe to promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Hire strategic thinkers and actually listen to them. Reward and promote those who perform.

    Pros

    Huge company with lots of opportunities for advancement and lateral movement to other fields. Great pay. Great benefits. Great work environment.

    Cons

    Since it is such a large company, there is a lot of bureaucratic layers to get anything done. Slow moving machine and the systems in-place are very particular.

    I worked at Terumo BCT full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Had decent pay but that is it and nothing more

    Cons

    One of the most hostile management I have ever had to deal with, manufacturing staff works on the whole 'bully the manufacturers to get quality and quantity' is one of the many problems this company has. The constant harassment, belittling, threatening, blaming of problems and many more. The fact that some people who have done acts that would have done acts in the workplace, that would otherwise get them arrested and...

    Advice to Management

    If I could, I would love to speak with one of the administrative staff about what goes on in that clean room. Even the president if I could because I get a feeling he has no idea what goes on in there, and some of his lackeys try to hide it from him. My advice is to actually do an anonymous observation on how your trainers, area coordinators, and supervisors handle the clean room because you need to be aware of how...
