Excellent benefits, great people, but terrible management
Receiving Associate/ Order Fulfillment specialist (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJune 19, 2016
Great company with great people.
Just a lot of bad communication between management and employees. Fast paced environment. Supervisors notify about overtime at last minute. Warehouse employees can't use vacation the last two weeks of the year

Great people to work with but not a lot of room for advancement
material handler (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJanuary 4, 2016
Co-workers were fun and easy to work with. Gained knowledge of receiving systems. Fast pace and ability to memorize numbers to do job successfully. Hired many from outside the company limiting opportunities for advancement and growth from within the company. Management was unsupportive and was not good at keeping moral high.
Pros
Co-workers
Cons

VERY low salary (sales), confused upper management, negative growth market.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  St Louis, MODecember 20, 2014
Aesculap has the best instruments in the industry hand's down and tells a remarkable story in terms of their company history. Unfortunately though, Aesculap has become a "reactive" company in the market the last 5 years or so and it is starting to cost them. Upper management, although talented, can't think outside the box and continues to sit still as competitors in this market continue to acquire, merge, create new offerings and become larger while Aeculap sits still and does nothing as they wait to see where the dust settles. No new products, a complete lack of marketing, and the inability to take risks and create new portfolios will continue to limit Aesculap's growth potential.

Unrealistic goals have been set for the company in terms of growth, and without a change in upper management it's just not realistic to achieve it with the same "bag" of product for roughly 30 years. Combine that with a deteriorating sales force morale due to commissions cuts, a laughable base salary, territory realignments/chopping to expand the sales force and unfortunately you are left with the "glory days" being a thing of the past.

It's a shame Aesculap refuses to get creative and be the innovator instead of a follower in a market that's staying steady in size if not decreasing every year.
Pros
good work/life balance
Cons
very low base salary, commisssion plan changes occuring yearly now in the wrong direction, stubborn upper management that won't change with the industry

Stressful environment but a great since of accomplishment when a good day is over.
Set World Customer Service Rep 1 (Former Employee) –  Hazelwood, MOJune 2, 2013
It is a very fast past work environment trying to get out Implant & instrument sets out as they are requested by the sales team. If we do not have the sets in house we have to look for them in the field and get them from another rep. Enter restocks and billings for the implants that were used in the surgeries. I have no response on the management as it is very questionable.
My co-workers were and are the best group to ever work with, we also have each other's back in every day situations.

There are a few to talk about-
*Not having the implant or instrument sets that are needed for surgery as they are all out in the field either being used or Sales reps do not want to let the one's they have go to help out another rep.
*Management is always in meetings never around when you need them & if you do not agree with them and have your own thoughts well you just signed your walking papers.

Knowing that we are making a impact on a patients quality of life and giving them a better longer life.

Employees make the company, HR management ruining it.
Management (Former Employee) –  stlDecember 17, 2012
Any company that is allowed to be run by incompetant HR people is headed for trouble. Corporate mgmt. is as much to blame for supporting or allowing it. Core values are a waste, speak the truth, although encouraged, will cost you more than your job. Living a lie costs much more.....
Pros
some very good people, benefits/salary
Cons
human resource cripples company; destroys morale
