Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) October 24, 2011 A recent Medreps.com survey asked job seekers which company they would most like to work for, and respondents named Johnson & Johnson, Stryker, and Medtronic as their employers of choice. Multiple job seekers cited these companies as ideal employers, and current employees of Johnson & Johnson, Stryker, and Medtronic confirmed that they are, indeed, great places to work. When asked to explain why Johnson & Johnson should be considered for the top award, one happy employee cited the following reasons: “Best benefits around, brand recognition, competitive salary and commission, amazing training, most respected workforce, and very flexible.”
Brand recognition, stability, and comprehensive benefit plans were just some of the reasons the top companies are attractive to MedReps.com members, but other, broader factors influenced the results as well – starting with the candidate’s preference for the type of products they want to sell. Professionals seeking positions as medical device reps wouldn’t nominate pharmaceutical companies as their ideal place to work, so in this regard, medical device companies had the edge in the MedReps.com survey. Over two-thirds of respondents said they are seeking jobs with medical device companies.
When broken down by the top three product categories, Johnson & Johnson was the preferred employer for those candidates pursuing medical device sales jobs, as well as those seeking jobs in pharma. Allergan was the preferred employer for those seeking jobs with biotech companies.
“We were pleased to confirm that the top companies are already posting their jobs with us,” says Rosemarie Vermeersch, General Manager of MedReps.com. “And in our ongoing effort to provide value to our members, we will be contacting the nominated companies that are not currently advertising with us and inviting them to do so. We feel strongly that those companies will benefit from posting their opportunities for our qualified candidate members.”
The Best Places to Work in Healthcare Sales survey is the first of its kind for MedReps.com, but the company plans on making it an annual event. Read the full “Best Places to Work in Healthcare Sales” report on MedReps.com.
