    Pros

    The organization gives everyone utmost liberty to manage the territory and its distributors. The division that I work for - ST is known to have a very strong team with high calibre individuals. Hence, there is always a healthy competition in the division.

    Cons

    There are not too many cons here. However, working for a long time at any medical devices/healthcare company may limit your chances outside the industry. Well, that applies go all sectors, ain't it?

    Advice to Management

    The organization is run by highly qualified and well-established leaders. I do not feel the need to advice them.

    Pros

    Only salary is good in this company and basics facility ie hotels stay and meetings are good, other than no extra benefits

    Cons

    No time to get your personal needs and family, not even Sundays. Instruments are not up to mark, just fools the patients ,, that the device is good, simply an example, a Continuous Glucose Monitoring device shows blood glucose level 180 , but if u go for lab test at that time the reading will come 120-125 , even the sales person doesn't have any words to say which is correct reading, Even the working area of sales executive is very big ie. half of Delhi and complete haryana

    Advice to Management

    think that how to get the accurate device for glucose monitoring devices, otherwise there may be some hectic problems
