Medical Device Recruiters

3 days ago in Medical Device General Discussion

A number of them have of never had a discussion with a physician about what's important to them in a customer driven sales consultant, much less ever even seen the inside of an ASC or an OR. Yet, they have all the capabilities and intuitiveness to determine what successful reps, Directors, VP's and CEO's do to become successful??? Crazy!

X became everything everyone said he couldn't be! I love it. His drive, his eloquent and very sincere bullshitting always put him in good graces with customers and his reps. The consummate relationship builder and problem solver. He's the sales guy's sales manager and proved that in three different companies, successful in all of them. Kudos to the man, he deserves all that he has achieved in both recognition and financial rewards!

Virtis Submission

3 days ago in Nuvectra

Virtis was the best hope to save this company. Now that Virtis will be third to market and up against a superior system that matches/exceeds its main advantages relative to Interstim, it's going to be a hard row to hoe. Even if you subtract out the R&D spend, the current levels of sales can't sustain the SG&A cost. Sales and revenue fell Q1 compared to Q4 as did gross profit. Unless there's an imminent follow-up coming for the SCS family or some other revenue stream it's already game over. Stock…

Zimmer Biomet Surgical Division

Would a Zimmer Biomet surgical rep be able to provide thoughts on the sales job with the surgical division? Pay, culture and products

Inferior products, underpaid reps who have always over-delivered, toxic culture. If you're going to pay me at 50% of what I was expecting then at least be honest about it.

Why should surgeons trust Globus Medical?

Almost all products are "me too" these days which is why contracts and the local rep are the most important thing for a company.
