So, what makes these companies great?

When it comes to evaluating prospective employers, medical sales professionals want to know, most importantly, that the company has a strong product line. But in this fast paced, ever-changing industry, it’s not enough to have great products today, med reps want to know the company is committed to research and development so that they will continue to offer a strong products in the future. Brand recognition is nice too, and strong financials of course, but when asked what’s most important – it comes down to a solid product line.

As it relates to corporate culture and employee growth, survey respondents overwhelmingly ranked competitive compensation and commission structure as the most important benefit offered by a prospective employer. Emphasis on work-life balance was a close second though. While a commitment to promoting from within and paid, on-the-job training opportunities were a fairly distant third and fourth. Commitment to social responsibility and employee wellness initiatives  came in at the bottom of the list.


From small start-ups to industry giants, medical sales and marketing professionals can find opportunities with a wide variety of healthcare companies – selling everything from devices and pharmaceuticals to home healthcare, IT services, and more. Job seekers who know what they want can pursue a more targeted search, but it’s important to remain flexible. Not every job seeker will be hired for Medtronic jobs, Johnson & Johnson jobs, or Stryker jobs, but this is no reason to be discouraged. There are thousands of other growing healthcare companies willing to pay for top talent. Could they be looking for you?
