Be Careful
EndoTherapy Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  MinnesotaJanuary 22, 2019
Excellent products, great sales reps. Where the company fails is with transparency with their training protocol upon hired, as well as their compensation. Hiring managers conveniently forget to mention the way bonuses work as well as they conveniently forget the whole training protocol. Even when you get your compensation in writing and your training expectations - these are not always the truth. Culpability and accountability are places for growth with the management. They always preach about promoting from within, but there seems to be some nepotism going on with personnel from another company???
With all the changes going on right now and the distant future - from changing their model- going from 5 business units to 2 business units, as well as the changes within the upper management - I would pause before talking with this company.
Pros
the products and the reps
Cons
management/leadership, benefits, training, support from managers, open to new ideas

Great technology and products
Exec. Director (Current Employee) –  PADecember 14, 2018
Great technology and products which have gained the respect of the surgical and GI community. Dominant player in GI. Workplace culture is collegiate and, for the most part, merit-based. Senior management lacks "big business" management experience.

Great place to work, if you actually want to work!!!
Receiving Clerk (Current Employee) –  Bartlett, TNOctober 13, 2018
Work for supply chain in the receiving department. If you actually want to work every day and actually want to earn a pay check this is a very great place to work. Other reviews I see don’t point out that the workforce is all colors and races. You just have to want to work and not take off a day every week. As a temp employee I know that is a sure way to get fired. Come to work and actually work and you will do fine.
Pros
Management very helpful, great pay, keep busy all day
Cons
Some bad apples that spread drama

Low Salaries and Confused Managers
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Waltham, MASeptember 17, 2018
The managers don't care about their employees. They micromanage and will make you redo you work if you don't do it their specific way (even if their way is not correct). Middle managers don't do any work themselves and constantly distract you with meetings and small pointless tasks. There are no talented engineers in the building. All of the talented engineers seem to quit after a year or two.
Cons
Poor Management, Poor Pay

Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZSeptember 11, 2018
If there were questions the managers were there to help. They also allowed you to work without micromanaging the employees. The pay was comparable to other companies and the benefits were good.

managers, lots of meetings, poor management of human resources
