Medtronic Diabetes Customer Service

A diabetes customer service rep has to be the most thankless job in the company. They have nothing to do with how the product works but they take all the blame. Good for them because I would go crazy listening to all the btching all day.

Will the products sold at these clinics help front line sales diabetes reps? Will they get credit for the sales?

Medtronic warns older insulin pumps could be vulnerable to hacking

I am so glad you wrote this because it is exactly what I am thinking. They are desperate to make it appear that their new pump the 670G is popular. I have an older pump on the list and am not giving it up. Do you have any details on what the recall involves? Do patients have to pay for the new pump? Do we have to send our old one back? What makes these pumps more susceptible to hackers than the new ones? Something is very rotten here.

The products in Diabetes are not the problem. Worry about the culture and bad executive decision. I would also be very concerned that no one is making any money because the sales targets are so high. Until they get that figured out, the culture will continue to be bad.

Ridiculous goals in the Diabetes endo division. Nobody is going to make any money. Betting many top reps leave. Senior leadership seems to only get worse and more clueless. Despite changes at the top strategy, morale, and incentive comp plans laughable.

Medtronic Diabetes T1D Tandem Diabetes Facebook Troll

This is the exact reason why Tandem cannot compete with us. We are like 20 times the size of them and everyone else except Abbott. We could literally hire the worst customer service reps and not train them and patients would still use Medtronic products.
