I'd have to agree that Boston Sci sounds bitter. Bitter that they lost reps to the competitor and bitter that their company performance is going the wrong way. Overpaid babies re-directing attention away from their poor performance and lack of any product pipeline.

St Jude has been hiring away BSC (Guidant) reps since the merger years ago. Hiring two more is no suprise to anyone. They probably will be working not only with their same surgeons, but with their former Guidant co workers too.

Hey, the reps were lucky to get a job when their old employer chewed on them. Not many people are lucky enough to be in that position.

St. Jude is the only large company to pull out of Advamed and no longer be bound by the code of conduct. Coincidence? They have been the loose and fast CRM company for some time. This is not a surprise

We all know that St. Jude is dirty. They will not stop at anything to make $$$$. Why be part of Advamed if you do not follow the guidlines?

The guy was a jerk when he was at Zimmer. Once a jerk, always a jerk.
