Why do medical device reps wear scrubs all day?

2 weeks ago in Medical Device Sales

Spent years in sales, the OR (incl. Robotics) and currently selling devices meeting with docs and the c-suite, in a suite. I hate suites since they’re extremely uncomfortable, high maintenance and what pharma reps wear. Btw, if/when an OR worker goes to a public place in their scrubs it’s highly frowned on given the possibility for blood born path being spread. Think of the blood and all else on your shoes and that soccer mom’s kid on the Starbucks ground. Puddles of blood all over the flo…

While Amgen and others in the industry are lowering drug prices, J&J decided it was in their best interest to raise prices on 12 drugs today.

Most of the J&J increases were between 6 percent and 7 percent and the increases will come from the psoriasis treatment Stelara, prostate cancer drug Zytiga and blood thinner Xarelto,

J&J said the average list price increase on its drugs will be 4.2 percent this year. However, it expects the net price it actually receives for its medicines to drop. That is…

Brotox

2 weeks ago in Allergan

Is business that bad where GP’s are now marketing Botox to men in their offices? Brotox is an awesome meme and all but a good business play? I can’t imagine the men’s Botox market will make up for the revenue loss once the competitors hit the market.

Nothing like the early retirement Lilly offered to over 3,500 employees in 2017!


Did Jacksonville Lose Medtronic's Number?

2 weeks ago in Medtronic ENT

No "real" new products. No excitement from corporate or sales and marketing. I mean, if Jacksonville had the phone number to Minneapolis you would think more would be coming down the pike. For the new products that have been introduced, has the needle even moved on marketshare? The balloon is a good example.

There's literally nothing in the pipeline except a new Nerve Integrity monitoring system which no one cares about.

Time for Medtronic to **** or get off the pot...

Avoid this company unless you are looking to build experience and leave lowest compensation in medical device

2 weeks ago in Ethicon

Read here for an excellent synopsis of the differences between the two companies:

Applied does sell "medical devices". Their gel is a device and the GelPort is actually much better than Dextrus. But that's pretty much where they stop. The rest of their products are knock-off's or me too products that they sell based on two things. Low prices and the fact their owner went and cried before Congress that JnJ and Medtronic bullied him out of the market so they are on GPO's.

Their salaries are very lo…

Applied Medical vs Ethicon

To think there are suckers who would go work for Applied. Newsflash. Don't do it because even as bad as Ethicon is, Applied is twice as bad. Great post about the two here:

Risperdal. Hip implants. Baby Powder. But Teflon Alex will never see the stand. What about the CrAYdOH?
