da Vinci Area Sales Manager

4 months ago

Is this job still a good place to be within Intuitive? I know reps were making bank back in the day selling systems. Now it seems like it's more upgrades and account maintenance. Can you still make money and is the pipeline strong enough where accounts will be increasing system placements in the future?

Is it necessary at this point to get a news article done about a new robot that basically does the same thing as the other 5 that this hospital has on site? This kind of marketing was great when no one had robots but now everyone has at least 2. Kind of a waste imo.

The New Hiring Standard at Intuitive Surgical

8 months ago

I see nothing wrong with this strategy. The kids get good sales training at companies like Enterprise and come in willing to learn. We teach them our way of doing things and they aren't jaded by previous device companies who may not train their reps very well.

It could be much worse.

I'm a new CSR and some of the tenured reps and mangers have been saying Boomsauce and apparently it's has an internal meaning. Little help for the newbie?

da Vinci Improves Outcomes and Saves Costs
