If you want to make exec type payouts, go get an exec job. But based on the time you spend on this site I think all know why that will never happen. Also how many shares do you think startup rep get? In case you didn't know, the answer is not as many as you think. Some reps at startups may think they are getting rich off equity, but that is just being uninformed. The only ones that make big money in startups today are those who have huge exits (rare) or go public. You are going public which means some opportunity for you. The real concern would be that with you in the field the stock probably doesn't have a chance to grow because you spend your days on this website. Another reason why F&F would be a waste on you. And yes I do spend my days here as well but that is because I don't feel entitled to an exec payout and it is fun for me to spend time making fun of people like you who say things that have no worth.

new to the conversation and so confused to where this is coming from. i'm a rep and we can make 250k here and got stock to come. not crazy options but who cares. we are in device not google. i havent heard of people being as unhappy as being stated here. so this talk of pathological lies is confusing to me. who came here as a rep and expected to walk away with google type money. the investors put up the money. we didnt.

Extremes and insults (previous poster) are often used to deflect from the actual issue-no one ever said Google money was the expectation and no one feels

It's an anonymous board so you'd think someone would have agreed with you by now. Seems like those unhappy reps may be a little fabricated.

Speak up on here if you really are upset!

They've spoken and are still speaking but not here. And any board can be broken with a court order (which I've discussed with them) and I guess you hadn't really thought about that or about who started this board (and why it was likely started)? It's been said and I agree these are some of the best reps in the industry- trust is earned -No one wanted Google money but being manipulated into thinking it was going to be more than one month's check is pathological-and with that-loyalty and trust were lost.

The fabrication is not on my end and if the company would just break down what the options would pay out at at their curren rate and if you're feeling lucky double it-show them what they'll make --show everyone what's really fabricated. Betcha that's not gonna happen though because how else will the company manipulate people into submission? Up next fear and threats?

Why does your tone sound so similar to this article below?

www.killingmycareer.com/the-sociopathic-business-model/intersect-ent-ipo-filing-made-public-show-propel/

It sounds like you're a former/current acclarent rep. Not attacking but why is everything you're saying mirroring this article?

I guess the better question is any medical device company who goes the IPO route absolutely kill it and open at 50 dollars a share? Doubtful, we're not sales reps for Facebook or Google.

Nice response. I'm still trying to understand how we somehow got screwed.

hummm if reps weren't comfortable with telling their managers (who didn't understand the options) their concerns....maybe some facts in that story checked out;) The Facebook/Google comparison is tiresome and meant as nothing more than a distraction from the reality of the situation. Perhaps you were correctly told it would only be about $10K others were lead to believe it would be closer to 10 times that amount (that's not Google or Facebook money but again it's pathological).

Once again, what medical device company in the past 5 years has killed it in the stock market?

Do you think that by joining a startup that goes public you should be granted 100,000 right off the bat? Once again, the tech market is very different that the business we're in. I wish medical devices companies were valued more than tech companies who don't really sell anything tangible, but that's not the world we live in.

I see your frustration, but it's unfortunate that a status update is worth more than a device that could save your life in the stock market.

I think you should drop this crybaby the company deceived me bullshit. What's done is done, it sucks, we all had dreams of wishing it was worth more.

It's that roll over and play dead attitude that's killing the industry-the woe is me-can't change it so just better to sit back and accept it-shows lack of character, drive or ambition. Yet, this faction of uneducated reps will likely be the first to ***** when (not if) things start to go south. Please keep the comparisons on the same level-people in device (although the little sister to tech) have made money on options-but keep believing what's fed and don't question why LE signed away rep options just two weeks before the IPO.

The reverse split was for the entire company you dingus. Not just us Sales reps. To play it off like Sales was the only one to take a huge hit is misleading. Would you rather have 4000 shares at a dollar each or 1000 shares at 4 dollars each. What looks more attractive to a potential investor at face value? It would be the same amount of money either way.

That poster you responded to is very misleading or just very uninformed. It's like they are trying to pull anything they can out of their *** to have their gotcha moment.

Let's not kid ourselves though, a reverse split is not looked upon favorably in the investment community. It may look more attractive to retail investors at 13/share vs 3, but the ones with the money know the real scoop.

Either way, good post.

Agreed, not going to defend the reverse split, but sick of hearing baseless claims. This is a great place to work right now and having the freedom to do your job is why I'm here. I can't speak for everyone but I hope this culture carries on for a long time.

Agreed. I wish more companies realized that process is good to a degree but the most important thing you can do is give your reps and team freedom to do their job. It will be hard to keep the culture as the company grows. It literally takes one bad apple to start infecting everyone and it is hard to get rid of them if they are a performer.

Us-you want to get rid of us the reason the company excels; but, keep being average and riding coattails it will end fabulously for you.

I'm completely lost as to what that post even means or how it relates to what the other person wrote. A little too much vodka in your orange juice???

Small caps starting to get smoked. Get out while you can.

hummm if reps weren't comfortable with telling their managers (who didn't understand the options) their concerns....maybe some facts in that story checked out;) The Facebook/Google comparison is tiresome and meant as nothing more than a distraction from the reality of the situation. Perhaps you were correctly told it would only be about $10K others were lead to believe it would be closer to 10 times that amount (that's not Google or Facebook money but again it's pathological).

Once again, what medical device company in the past 5 years has killed it in the stock market?

Do you think that by joining a startup that goes public you should be granted 100,000 right off the bat? Once again, the tech market is very different that the business we're in. I wish medical devices companies were valued more than tech companies who don't really sell anything tangible, but that's not the world we live in.

I see your frustration, but it's unfortunate that a status update is worth more than a device that could save your life in the stock market.

I think you should drop this crybaby the company deceived me bullshit. What's done is done, it sucks, we all had dreams of wishing it was worth more.

It's that roll over and play dead attitude that's killing the industry-the woe is me-can't change it so just better to sit back and accept it-shows lack of character, drive or ambition. Yet, this faction of uneducated reps will likely be the first to ***** when (not if) things start to go south. Please keep the comparisons on the same level-people in device (although the little sister to tech) have made money on options-but keep believing what's fed and don't question why LE signed away rep options just two weeks before the IPO.

The reverse split was for the entire company you dingus. Not just us Sales reps. To play it off like Sales was the only one to take a huge hit is misleading. Would you rather have 4000 shares at a dollar each or 1000 shares at 4 dollars each. What looks more attractive to a potential investor at face value? It would be the same amount of money either way.

That poster you responded to is very misleading or just very uninformed. It's like they are trying to pull anything they can out of their *** to have their gotcha moment.

Let's not kid ourselves though, a reverse split is not looked upon favorably in the investment community. It may look more attractive to retail investors at 13/share vs 3, but the ones with the money know the real scoop.

Either way, good post.

Agreed, not going to defend the reverse split, but sick of hearing baseless claims. This is a great place to work right now and having the freedom to do your job is why I'm here. I can't speak for everyone but I hope this culture carries on for a long time.

Agreed. I wish more companies realized that process is good to a degree but the most important thing you can do is give your reps and team freedom to do their job. It will be hard to keep the culture as the company grows. It literally takes one bad apple to start infecting everyone and it is hard to get rid of them if they are a performer.

Us-you want to get rid of us the reason the company excels; but, keep being average and riding coattails it will end fabulously for you.

If you want to make exec type payouts, go get an exec job. But based on the time you spend on this site I think all know why that will never happen. Also how many shares do you think startup rep get? In case you didn't know, the answer is not as many as you think. Some reps at startups may think they are getting rich off equity, but that is just being uninformed. The only ones that make big money in startups today are those who have huge exits (rare) or go public. You are going public which means some opportunity for you. The real concern would be that with you in the field the stock probably doesn't have a chance to grow because you spend your days on this website. Another reason why F&F would be a waste on you. And yes I do spend my days here as well but that is because I don't feel entitled to an exec payout and it is fun for me to spend time making fun of people like you who say things that have no worth.

new to the conversation and so confused to where this is coming from. i'm a rep and we can make 250k+ here and got stock to come. not crazy options but who cares. we are in device not google. i havent heard of people being as unhappy as being stated here. so this talk of pathological lies is confusing to me. who came here as a rep and expected to walk away with google type money. the investors put up the money. we didnt.

Extremes and insults (previous poster) are often used to deflect from the actual issue-no one ever said Google money was the expectation and no one feels

It's an anonymous board so you'd think someone would have agreed with you by now. Seems like those unhappy reps may be a little fabricated.

Speak up on here if you really are upset!

They've spoken and are still speaking but not here. And any board can be broken with a court order (which I've discussed with them) and I guess you hadn't really thought about that or about who started this board (and why it was likely started)? It's been said and I agree these are some of the best reps in the industry- trust is earned -No one wanted Google money but being manipulated into thinking it was going to be more than one month's check is pathological-and with that-loyalty and trust were lost.

The fabrication is not on my end and if the company would just break down what the options would pay out at at their curren rate and if you're feeling lucky double it-show them what they'll make --show everyone what's really fabricated. Betcha that's not gonna happen though because how else will the company manipulate people into submission? Up next fear and threats?

It's been said and I agree these are some of the best reps in the industry- trust is earned -No one wanted Google money but being manipulated into thinking it was going to be more than one month's check is pathological-and with that-loyalty and trust were lost.

The fabrication is not on my end and if the company would just break down what the options would pay out at at their curren rate and if you're feeling lucky double it-show them what they'll make --show everyone what's really fabricated. Betcha that's not gonna happen though because how else will the company manipulate people into submission? Up next fear and threats?

Why does your tone sound so similar to this article below?

www.killingmycareer.com/the-sociopathic-business-model/intersect-ent-ipo-filing-made-public-show-propel/

It sounds like you're a former/current acclarent rep. Not attacking but why is everything you're saying mirroring this article?

I guess the better question is any medical device company who goes the IPO route absolutely kill it and open at 50 dollars a share? Doubtful, we're not sales reps for Facebook or Google.

hummm if reps weren't comfortable with telling their managers (who didn't understand the options) their concerns....maybe some facts in that story checked out;) The Facebook/Google comparison is tiresome and meant as nothing more than a distraction from the reality of the situation. Perhaps you were correctly told it would only be about $10K others were lead to believe it would be closer to 10 times that amount (that's not Google or Facebook money but again it's pathological).

Once again, what medical device company in the past 5 years has killed it in the stock market?

Do you think that by joining a startup that goes public you should be granted 100,000 right off the bat? Once again, the tech market is very different that the business we're in. I wish medical devices companies were valued more than tech companies who don't really sell anything tangible, but that's not the world we live in.

I see your frustration, but it's unfortunate that a status update is worth more than a device that could save your life in the stock market.

I think you should drop this crybaby the company deceived me bullshit. What's done is done, it sucks, we all had dreams of wishing it was worth more.

It's that roll over and play dead attitude that's killing the industry-the woe is me-can't change it so just better to sit back and accept it-shows lack of character, drive or ambition. Yet, this faction of uneducated reps will likely be the first to ***** when (not if) things start to go south. Please keep the comparisons on the same level-people in device (although the little sister to tech) have made money on options-but keep believing what's fed and don't question why LE signed away rep options just two weeks before the IPO.

The reverse split was for the entire company you dingus. Not just us Sales reps. To play it off like Sales was the only one to take a huge hit is misleading. Would you rather have 4000 shares at a dollar each or 1000 shares at 4 dollars each. What looks more attractive to a potential investor at face value?

It would be the same amount of money either way.

If you want to make exec type payouts, go get an exec job. But based on the time you spend on this site I think all know why that will never happen. Also how many shares do you think startup rep get? In case you didn't know, the answer is not as many as you think. Some reps at startups may think they are getting rich off equity, but that is just being uninformed. The only ones that make big money in startups today are those who have huge exits (rare) or go public. You are going public which means some opportunity for you. The real concern would be that with you in the field the stock probably doesn't have a chance to grow because you spend your days on this website. Another reason why F&F would be a waste on you. And yes I do spend my days here as well but that is because I don't feel entitled to an exec payout and it is fun for me to spend time making fun of people like you who say things that have no worth.

new to the conversation and so confused to where this is coming from. i'm a rep and we can make 250k+ here and got stock to come. not crazy options but who cares. we are in device not google. i havent heard of people being as unhappy as being stated here. so this talk of pathological lies is confusing to me. who came here as a rep and expected to walk away with google type money. the investors put up the money. we didnt.

Extremes and insults (previous poster) are often used to deflect from the actual issue-no one ever said Google money was the expectation and no one feels

It's an anonymous board so you'd think someone would have agreed with you by now. Seems like those unhappy reps may be a little fabricated.

Speak up on here if you really are upset!

Nice article. So the executives had a conversation like this one day?

Yep-but it's missing the evil laugh and the fact it was done to the reps two weeks before the IPO. That's cold and calculated.

What was done to the reps a couple of weeks before IPO?
