Business Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Vista, CA – January 9, 2019
Being a contractor is always a difference experience but working for the department that I worked for was a blessing. From what I heard the rest of DJO was not like my department. We worked hard and as a team, we were also rewarded with a lot of fun activities and great team memories.
Product Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Vista, CA – November 29, 2018
When I started at DJO I was very excited and my first year was amazing. I moved to the corporate office and everything went down from there. Environment was toxic, management encouraged an almost juvenile atmosphere. Then the lay-offs started and continued till after 5 years my job became eliminated and I was not able to move-up through the company.
SENIOR HUMAN RESOURCES BUSINESS PARTNER (Current Employee) – Vista, CA – September 27, 2018

Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Plainfield, IN – September 12, 2018
DJO started out as an interesting place to work. The longer I was there the worse it became. There was a lot of drama, pay did not really change. They outsourced our jobs to another location, then outsourced them again.
HR was nice and supportive. IT guys were great
Managerial drama, lied to about jobs, Never knew when anyone was going to get fired because they always used that as a scare tactic, No tolerance for individuals, wants a hive mind
Team Lead - Reimbursement Specialist (Former Employee) – Shoreview, MN – September 7, 2018
There was lack of communication between upper management/leadership team with the lower management/leads. The company was having hardship financially however it was not communicated till we were informed that the company was being dissolved.
Warehouse Production Lead (Current Employee) – Plainfield, IN – August 30, 2018
DJO Global has a productive atmosphere but a fun place to work, I have learned most every position in my company over the 12 years I have been here. The culture is every order is for a patient not just a box to ship.

Analyst (Current Employee) – Vista, CA – July 31, 2018
Your experience is very much dependent on the management. Small enough to make an impact but large enough to have opportunities to learn. The company is going through many changes which will hopefully impact employees and customers positively in the future.
Area Sales Director (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – May 23, 2018
Typical day would be to maintain & grow business within my given geography. This would be coupled with managing direct reports and mentoring them to be successful. I learned that a large company tends to thin out on resources needed for a very profitable division of the company...the company is too spread into too many areas. New management came to DJO from another top player within the ortho space. The problem is these executives did not fully understand our business and may have set us back. As a result- the workplace culture is a bit of a tense environment right now. The hardest part of the job is having the necessary R&D that has been needed and still is needed to produce at the top level. The enjoyable part of the job would be working for a very recognized, credible company and having the autonomy to generate the daily business decisions necessary.
Strong name in ortho field
Poor decisions not to provide the necessary R&D with clinical evidence
The manufacturing and operations is run by people who have never worked in this environment. They refuse to reinvest in their equipment. A large majority of equipment is over 20 years old and not maintained.

PCS REPRESENTATIVE - INSIDE SALES (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – April 11, 2018
I liked helping the patients, but the company was going through a lot of changes trying to become public. We had a capped bonus we could make each month and in almost 8 years we never received an increase on our base salary and the health benefits went up every year and we got less benefits from them. They closed the Empi part of the company and laid off more that 1000 employess.
