    Pros

    Good product pipeline, respected in MS specialty area, Above average salary and benefits, good reward program and work / life balance for Sales Reps

    Cons

    Too much change in Leadership team. Some directors are not honest and truthful as per the credo of the company and will lie to protect themselves. No support to help whistle blowers who are dedicated to the company's values. No respect for opinions of long standing employees. A bad egg in a powerful position can destroy the career of loyal and trusting employees and it seems that no one cares.
