    I have been working at Clarion Medical Technologies

    Pros

    I have been with the company for 4 years and believe that the Senior Executive team is honest and transparent. They truly know how to balance their drive for a sales/profit driven organization with their strong people focus and desire to create a positive team environment. In the past 2 years they have done more for their employees than I have ever seen any company do in this industry. They have engaged an outside...

    Cons

    Some sales tools/resources are still missing to fully enable the sales force but it is moving in the right direction and getting better every quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you have been doing in the past 12 months. Your are on the right track to growing a very successful organization with happy employees.

    I have been working at Clarion Medical Technologies full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Comprehensive benefits and compensation package. Low to average salary compared to industry average.

    Cons

    Having worked at various companies with multiple levels of executives, departments and seniority, I haven't quite experienced a company dynamic like Clarion's. There's an overwhelming divide of culture that's dictated by one's position and department, down to the type of product a sales rep is responsible for. Almost like the cool kids (sales reps) colliding with the isolated group in the school cafeteria (support staff)....

    Advice to Management

    Support staff need to be recognized, empowered and viewed as an equal player. A mention on the intranet from leadership/sales rep is a start but also enables sales teams to view individuals as servants instead of as an equal team player.

    I have been working at Clarion Medical Technologies full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some managers really care about employees and growth. However they are often halted by senior leadership.

    Cons

    Minimal vacation time with no signs of changing, pay structure seems to be based on years with the company rather than quality of work. Pretty much no room for growth. Senior Leadership pretends they want to see you grow but provide no opportunity to do so and in fact limit growth when requested. The company is growing significantly but does not reward its employees or commpensate them who are now overworked as a...

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership should give employees a reason to stay with compensation or vacation time if they are performing above average consistently.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Clarion Medical Technologies full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I have mixed feelings about working here. Clarion is undergoing enormous growth and success which reflects positively on the morale. The company is lead by a vibrant president who cares about his employees as much as he does the business. The total compensation package is one of the best out there: profit sharing, performance bonus, wellness account, 100% paid benefits and competitive pension matching.

    Cons

    I'm hesitant to give Clarion a high rating because of the disjointed company culture. It's odd that almost half the in-office staff are in leadership roles yet the company is structured in a way where it's difficult for one to develop their career or receive a promotion. There's a clash of personalities between the in-office staff and external sales team. And the worst of it - bashing, gossip and down-talking of fellow...

    Advice to Management

    A strong compensation package is a great basis for a retention strategy, but in the end employees don’t leave companies, they leave management.

    I have been working at Clarion Medical Technologies

    Pros

    Company is involved in bringing innovative new technologies and services into the Canadian Healthcare market

    Cons

    It is a distributor so there is always a risk that some of distribution contracts can be cancelled but this has not been an issue so far.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep you eye on the market and make sure we are bringing the latest and newest proven products into the market

    "Big changes in the company culture"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Clarion Medical Technologies full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Great innovative and unique products that truly make a difference to patient's and doctor's. The company has worked hard to change the culture and create a great work environment, both for the inside and outside team, like it had been in the past No micro-managing and leaders trust the employees. A huge change compared to 2 years ago. Those who are not happy and engaged are now the small minority. Love what I do...

      Cons

      Smaller company means less resources, especially an active and passionate sales organization like this one. A lot of information/products to know and a lot of self-learning expected. Not like a big medical company that gives lots of regular training BUT also not like a big medical company that over-manages and cuts layers of people regularly.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on the same path that has allowed you to re-shape the company's culture and gain loyalty from your employees.

      I have been working at Clarion Medical Technologies

      Pros

      I've worked for several other companies (small to large) and although the company isn't perfect its a good company. They are constantly looking for new technologies. At times they are too new for some technologies but I'd rather be first than last. The company cares about its customers. My co-workers are nice and try to help as much as possible. The managers don't micro-manage and give me enough freedom. The pay and...

      Pros

      Since I started at Clarion my experience has been fantastic. I read some of the negative reviews and wonder are these people working for the same company. From top to bottom the people here are a joy to work with. Given it's a smaller company everyone has a voice and can make a difference if they have the right attitude. A number of people take this opportunity and thrive. Others don't and end up being negative...

      Cons

      This company has been around for a long time and continues to grow so there are always some areas of improvement. Has there been turnover. Yes. Has the turnover been voluntary or involuntary? I believe it's mostly involuntary due to performance or attitude and the executives are just trying to clean up things to make it better for others and are succeeding in this.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on the same path. Continue to listen to employees and customers and recruit the best talent into Clarion while weeding out any remaining negative and under-performing people not trying to make a difference I see in some of these reviews.

      Met some great people along the way.

      Cons

      The culture in this company is the worst I have ever seen. It shows in everything that you will read in the reviews: from employees being asked to post comments to increase their score to employees being let go for voicing concerns about internal processes and how to improve things to employees who have no empowerment to get things done because they fear consequences. Their customers even refuse to do business with...

      Advice to Management

      Stop blaming others for their toxic behaviour and look at yourselves as the owners of the culture. Your behaviours drive the culture!! Time to take a hard look at yourselves and get feedback on how to instill an work environment that nurtures team work and empowerment. The success will come after that happens. Unfortunately. Your egos are your biggest roadblock. Good luck!!
