I don't work at Dynasplint and never have. I don't know the company that way. I know Dynasplint as one of the most upstanding companies in the area I live in. I see Dynasplint sponsoring local events like the 4th of July Parade, helping the local Severna Park Assistance Network with canned food drives, and donating lots of money to charity and worthy causes like the University of Maryland's School of Medicine.

I know several people that work at Dynasplint, and I grew up knowing the owner and his family as kind, generous, and caring people. At that time I didn't know that there was even a correlation between them and Dynasplint.

So that's where I'm coming from. Anyone that talks about Dynasplint ownership being greedy or selfish, just doesn't know what they are talking about. Those people should look inside themselves for those characteristics, before they plaster Dynasplint with that kind of unwarranted hyperbole.

If you are adept at sales, and have some experience or an interest in phisiology, this is a great place. The product is top notch and sales support getting better all the time. Like any company the top 20% do 80% of the work, but I know one rep who is there in under a year. Give it a shot!

The Dynasplint device actually is quality-and it works. Good rep. with PTs, OTs, and Ortho Surg that know it. Getting new docs on board and prescribing is the sales job. Bottom line-you must be good at sales and like working with patients.

For those on here with knowledge of Dynasplint, can you tell me about the foot/ankle division? The recruiter told me that insurance coverage isn't very good on these products. True? What else can anyone tell me about this division? I have reached out to some current reps but haven't been able to connect with them yet. Thanks for the help!

Who is Dynasplints major competition?

REAL ANSWERS
10-27-2008, 01:30 PM
Answer 1- You do custom-fit patients, but not at their residence- usually at PT or Dr.'s office.
Answer 2- Yes, $50K and up depending on the part of the country is 1st year compensation.
Answer 3- About the Ankle & Foot Division. Insurance contracting is different all over the country in dynamic splinting, but you may want to know that the top sales consultant in the company actually is an A&F guy. You can contact Todd Domangue at Tdomangue@dynasplint.com. He is the Managing Director of the Division and will be glad to talk to you.
Answer 4- Top competition is probably static progressive splinting by Empi. Not nearly as good as dynamic splinting-check out the research on this.

It's like a franchise opportunity, but they pay you a salary instead of you having to take out a loan to buy into it yourself - if you are looking for a great long term opportunity Dynasplint is great! Don't think about $50K-$65K the first year ... think about growing the business and creating $100K earings the next 1-2 years, then growing it more from there ... all while helping people. Consider yourself lucky to get such a rare opportunity with out having to dig into your own pockets to get it started. Instead you'll actually get a paycheck that YOU can increase by doing well!

I believe that the poster was making a comparison between running your own territory at Dynasplint and a franchise. You do not have to purchase your inventory, collatoral materials, and you are provided back office support and a base paycheck. Are you crazy for considering Dynasplint? There are always going to be nay-sayers on boards who didn't do well with the company and are bitter. Ask the Regional Manager at interview time for a sales consultant to talk to, and ask your hard questions. You would probably not be looking here if you didn't like sales, and want to be part of helping people restore theor range of motion and improve their lives. Dynasplint is a good company, and you are not crazy!

Everyone who works for DSI is held to the same standard of performance. The President of Dynasplint has placed key people in whom he trusts and believes will do the right thing in leadership positions. Therefore, if a sales consultant (including a daughter) is not performing in the way that they should, and has given PLENTY of coaching and the opportunity to succeed and still does not improve, then they must be terminated. That is just best business practice.
I respect a company that has morals and standards to not ďhand-overĒ success to someone just because they are a family member. Fairness dictates that thatís the way it must be. Most people look for a company where everyone is treated fairly and favoritism is not based on your last name.
Cleary you have heard gossip, but rumor mills are dangerous as you only hear one side. I couldnít agree more with Concerned Citizen, that it is a shame that you have such a mission to be nasty and try and destroy someoneís reputation. If you REALLY knew who and what you were talking about you would be appalled by how far from the truth your claims appear.

Actually, there are far more NEGATIVE comments and experiences about Dynasplint than positive. Search Dynasplint and read through them. 95% of the posts portray Dynasplint as a company that does not take care of its employees well - period. DSI does not have a very good compensation/benefits package and is merely a "stepping stone" to a better medical device sales employment opportunity.

Re: Answer # 4. Do check the research but get Joint Active Systems SPS bibliography. Like DSI, EMPI sells dynamic devices and has no research to support efficacy. Most of DSI's recent research is authored by an in-house PhD, not an M.D. and the older stuff consists mostly of case studies i.e no significant patient census, no control, randomization, etc. Both loading techniques (Static Progressive and dynamic) provide results but SPS is documented to work in much less time and has significantly better clinical research backing it up.

We have found that the number one competitor to Dynasplint is the lack of knowledge about the splint and the indications of use. There are so many people that say they know Dynasplint but only a small percentage of all therapists and physicians understand all of the indications. Thatís why the sales force at Dynasplint is growing- to get the word out to doctors and therapists. The technology of low load prolonged stretch is shown to be the best way to restore range of motion, utilizing the Creep Phenomenon and the Tert principle. The splint is more comfortable and tolerated better by patients because of the LLPS and the patientsí ability to increase or decrease the amount of stretch they feel during their treatment. It is also important to point out that Dynasplint can accommodate the wearing schedule for the patient to make it fit their lifestyle.
We are happy to point out that there are several studies that are not related to Dynasplint that help support this information. Here are two significant studies to check out;
Rehabilitation: Focused exercise aids shoulder hypomobility (Davies and Ellenberger)
and
The use of splints in the treatment of joint stiffness: biologic rationale and an algorithm for making clinical decisions (PW McClure, LG Blackburn, and C Dusold)
Happy reading!

"Stepping stone?" I'll have to DISAGREE! As a current sales consultant of Dynasplint, I am very happy with my chosen career path. I have been working with Dynasplint for three years and have the utmost respect for the company as a whole. In fact, I have recruited my closest friends to come and join Dynasplint, as sales consultants, and they too share my position. "Stepping stone?" Over the past three years I have been able to rapidly achieve the President's Club level. I am more than satisfied with my compensation/benefits package...And my husband is too!

The Real Facts
11-13-2008, 09:09 PM
I love the positive spin on everything, sounds like a Northern Div mgrs kool aid. There is a lot to love about Dynasplint like the product, hands on patient care, and feeling good about helping people. But again this is sales and if you are in sales you are here for the money. This is a stepping stone to a bigger and better pay day. They have predetermined packages basesd on how many patients get fit each month. So avg base is 45-70 plus an avg of 8-20 k in tier bonuses. 100k and up is unrealistic. Plus you work like a dog, which is fine, your day flys bye, but you re not compensated coorectly compared to the workload. Plus you will spend over your gas allowance. I guarantee that. Franchise comment is a joke. They can cut your territory at any time, decreasing your earning potential, and hold you to same quotas.

I just read all the comments and I don't recall anyone in this thread saying "Dynasplint has never done anything wrong." No company is perfect, but I have seen the good that this company does first hand. A significant majority of their staff enjoys the work they do, they take ownership of their contributions every day.

As for the management positions . . . I'm sure that there are examples of people attaining those positions through hard work. Hard work and networking are two key components of self-advancement. Very often, the people that move up are those that are both qualified AND connected. This sentiment, "It's not what you know, it's who you know," has been around for a long time, and exists (to some extent) in every workplace.

Sales Consultants at Dynasplint do have about an hour of paperwork an evening depending upon activity. New tablet computers are rolling out in the first quarter of 09, and this will make a huge difference. They make about 8 to 12 calls per day to doctors and therapists, and fewer when they are fitting patients. The territories average about a one hour's drive from the radius of their area, but there are bigger territories out in the country and and tighter ones in the cities. In the end, the top producers work hard. This work is all about what you put into it. Good luck!

My physician ordered me a Trisma splint and told me the sales rep would handle everything and come to my home to fit me. The physician left the country for a month. After almost a month, I was "fitted" with a Dynasplint trisma splint by a local rep today. Unfortunately s/he placed the splint in my mouth and did not have me redo it. She spent less than 10 minutes with me and met me at a non-medical place. I was told that there were full instructions including how to remove the pads for cleaning. She put it in the box and left. When I called to have her return (less than 5 minutes after she had left) to show me how to clean the device, she did not return my call at first, then refused to come back. I now have several questions.

1. Which way do the pads go----less transparent plastic towards the teeth or away from them?
2. How does one remove the pads for cleaning?
3. Are the pads at the back of the mouth or the front (she did not tell me that)
4. Who is in charge of sales staff and customer satisfaction at corporate? I previously left a voice mail for the managing director (I was told he was in charge) and that was not returned.

Thank you. A very disatisfied customer

As an ex-employee, I cant remember the answers to your questions. I used the trismus unit 2 on ENT cancer patients with great success.

I would stop calling the rep. On monday, call the corporate office and speak to the director for that division to get your answers.

You waited a month for the unit, 2 more days wont kill ya!

Thank you anonymous. I am going to call the corporate headquarters, as I suspect that the standard of service I have experienced so far is far from what the company expects from its employees. I copied "Info@dynasplint" on my response as I have so far been unable to find out who overseas the California region. If not I may have to try to reach the head person who I believe is George Haupman.

Inferior outdated devices, but sounds like a good company nonetheless.

Just from experiance, I worked for Dynasplint for almost 2 years, yes they maybe a repital company, and the owner is a very upstanding individual as well as his family, but the people he has in potitions of athority treat the employees like crap, they are stable company with good benefits, that is what drew me to them in the first place they pay somewhat adiquately but they will present to you in an interview a bunch of crap all lies, do not think you can move up in this company because that is nearly impossible, if you are not in the click!!! yes there are only a few that are in this click and they are treated in a competely different manner, never give them any idea's to change a process that may improve your job or make a process of your job more efficiant, because it will be taken and you will be told it will be given considertion, but then you will see it was implimented and put into effect and another person will get the credit for it not you.
I may seem a little harsh or angry but trust me I am not the only one that feels this way. So go in with an open mind and make your own oppinion but trust me you will see what I am talking about I will give you 6 month. Oh and one more thing they treat the Minority employees even worse.

George is a fantastic person on a personal level...and he is nice in the work place he is not mean to anyone...but why is it that the sales consultants are pulling money out of their OWN pocket for in services etc...why is it that they barely get a car allowance...the goals are outrageously unattainable...think before you speak! Why is it that you only get a manager position in corporate if you KNOW someone or are best friends with someone? That is all favoritism...think about it people. Why is it that they fraudulently bill insurance companies...hmm I wonder...Money Hungry?? I think yeah! This would be a fantastic company...if they only had the right people running it.

AMENNNNNNNNNN!!!!! I am so glad that someone else sees what I see and the click if you are not in the click you get nowhere OMG I thought it was only me and yes they need to redo the management find good people that are fare and honest that do not steal other employees Idea's and implement them as there own.

Yes the owner is a good man but he is not in all places at all times he has put the wrong people in the wrong positions and has lost a lot of real hard working good honest people that could have benefitted the company, but becuase of the favoratism that is shown for only a few this will continue to happen over and over again and the turn over will continue, you think the money that is put in to the training of these employees that has been lost would have put up a red flag to the owner and say something has to change weather that be a change in management or some training courses need to be implimented. OH another thing if you do work for this company do not ever trust anyone because there are people that are paid and given extremely differant treatment ( by meeting there goals every month and make there bonuses off of others who have busted there buts) why becuase they are paid to snitchon everyone and everything. and after they have received all the info that has been requested from them they are somehow put back into the same catagory as every other employee that is not in the click, just document everything and leep a paper trail of all you accomplishment because trust me they seem to dissapear if they do not want to give you what you deserve after you bust your but for this company and if this happens pelase go directly to the owner with all the documentation he is a good honest man and will listen to you whole heartedly.

You may be correct in thier philanthropic community events but you never worked for the company. It sucks they treat the employees like shit. If they took just .001% of thier community events and directed it toward thier employees they wouldn't have 80% turnover.

Heck they just started giving out cell phones and it only took them 8 years to do that. This company is so far behind the times they need to sell to someone who can actually run the company correctly with integrity.

Interesting that you decided to post this twice yesterday.

Don't be fooled by these posts the positive posts are from the corporate people scanning them and adding thier positive spin on it. Word of caution if it's positive it's a corporate person if it's negative its one of the current or previous employees...

And that's a particularly interesting perspective considering that you have once again tried to play yourself off as multiple people by posting multiple negative comments . . . but you haven't quite figured that out yet have you?

Something from one of your previous attacks:
Look at the time stamp on posts 43 through 46. They all come within 10 minutes of each other. There is some serious negative manipulation going on here so beware of the information contained within this thread and on these boards.

And now look at the time stamp on posts 44 through 49 of this thread.

Same thing. Imagine that!

Nothing positive or negative, just an unbiased observation of the information presented on this board and nothing more.

People are free to read and form their own opinions, but they should at least be aware of bitter individuals like yourself that waste their time trying to smear companies as a result of some perceived injustice that they have experienced.

Do not work for this company. Seems like a good company when you visit the website, go through the interview process, and even go to training. The truth is that Dynasplint is a good product to sell. You probably won't complain about the decent salary and car allowance either. But the reality is the company doesn't know how to train sales people and you won't be around for long. If you don't hit your numbers no matter how unrealistic they are you will be gone. There is no sales training if you're not hitting your numbers. If you don't hit they fire you and hire someone else. Put it this way...I went to my first quarterly district/team meeting recently and I realized something when we all went around the table and did introductions. We said our name and how long we had been with the company. Listen to these results. Eleven reps total. 1 rep with the company 7 years, 1 rep for 5 Years, 1 rep for 2 years, 1 rep for 9 months, 4 reps for 6 months, 3 reps for less than 3 months. Eight out of eleven reps have been with the company for less than 9 months. What does that tell you about turnover??? Since that meeting I was let go along with two other reps who weren't hitting their numbers. In the past I have worked in sales and never had a problem hitting numbers, but the numbers Dynasplint expects are unrealistic because they do not properly analyze territory potential (all you current employees know what I am talking about). If you get a high producing territory you may make it as long as the reps at the meeting I went to (anywhere from 2-7 years). I would look for other jobs where you can grow as a professional and/or salesperson. Check Medzilla.com for real jobs. Just trying to help out...

Interesting that you decided to post this twice yesterday.



And that's a particularly interesting perspective considering that you have once again tried to play yourself off as multiple people by posting multiple negative comments . . . but you haven't quite figured that out yet have you?

Something from one of your previous attacks:


And now look at the time stamp on posts 44 through 49 of this thread.

Same thing. Imagine that!

Nothing positive or negative, just an unbiased observation of the information presented on this board and nothing more.

People are free to read and form their own opinions, but they should at least be aware of bitter individuals like yourself that waste their time trying to smear companies as a result of some perceived injustice that they have experienced.

Who is the manager in NC?

I currently work for Dynasplint and so far I really do enjoy it. One thing people need to remember is that he/she is going to have to work. So many people think they get a sales job and just show up somewhere and sell. You have to educate people on your product, any product you sell, Dynasplint included. Now, the only problem I see thus far is that they only hire from within the company. That usually sounds great if you are looking to join a company... except, often times a great sales rep, is not a great manager. Usually these two jobs require different characteristics, now sometimes it works, but often it doesn't. However, if you understand the product and the principles it was built upon you will realize that it is the best there is.

All things considered thus far things are going well but if you are considering working for Dynasplint you are going to have to work, the orders will not just be handed to you. For many people that is going to be a problem, for others with a good work ethic you shouldn't have a problem. Best of luck to whomever you are.

I have applied for an opening and we will see if I am contacted. I should be contacted, but who knows. Thanks for the information. Do they use the in-house recruiters or do they use an outside recruiter? I have applied online and send my information to the DM.

That is all that this company is a stepping stone if that. It's a horrible company to work for with twisted culture that benefits no one. Read the posts and see that there are lots of unhappy people associated with this company. Also know that corporate trickles in thier positive spin since the reality is that the company is shit. Heck with a turnover of 78% why not give it a shot you have nothing to lose...

Get re-encourage by post 27 by a Sales Consultant who loves her work with Dynasplint!

"As a current sales consultant of Dynasplint, I am very happy with my chosen career path. I have been working with Dynasplint for three years and have the utmost respect for the company as a whole. In fact, I have recruited my closest friends to come and join Dynasplint, as sales consultants, and they too share my position. "Stepping stone?" Over the past three years I have been able to rapidly achieve the President's Club level. I am more than satisfied with my compensation/benefits package...And my husband is too!"Nice post corporate!!People don't be fooled by this.

This is a message board and place where truth and accurate facts are supposed to be found. Unfortunately, much of what is written is completely skewed and extremely far from the reality that Dynasplint Systems is and stands for as a company. Many people are wasting their time blasting a company for actions and claims that are false and downright slanderous. Before spewing stories itís usually a good idea to gather all the facts and make sure they are true, as many of the postings are extremely mislead.
For those wanting to REALLY know about Dynasplint, I would start talking to people that work for the company and let them share their experience. You will more than likely get an honest answer of what they like and donít like rather than asking a disgruntled and miserable person on their one sided view.

So approximatley 8 out of 10 people lose thier jobs with Dynasplint. So I would have to find 2 employees to talk with that probably have a tenure of less than 1 year. See the previous post #53 "Put it this way...I went to my first quarterly district/team meeting recently and I realized something when we all went around the table and did introductions.

I don't work at Dynasplint and never have. I don't know the company that way. I know Dynasplint as one of the most upstanding companies in the area I live in. I see Dynasplint sponsoring local events like the 4th of July Parade, helping the local Severna Park Assistance Network with canned food drives, and donating lots of money to charity and worthy causes like the University of Maryland's School of Medicine.

I know several people that work at Dynasplint, and I grew up knowing the owner and his family as kind, generous, and caring people. At that time I didn't know that there was even a correlation between them and Dynasplint.

So that's where I'm coming from. Anyone that talks about Dynasplint ownership being greedy or selfish, just doesn't know what they are talking about. Those people should look inside themselves for those characteristics, before they plaster Dynasplint with that kind of unwarranted hyperbole.Gotta make themselves look good to someone. We all know that the company doesn't take care of it's employees.

Dynasplint is for entrepreneurial type professionals. not for your average joe looking to show up, do the min, and collect a paycheck.But they sure pay like you're the average joe. Expect 30-40k per year for selling medical equipment. I wouldn't get out of bed for less than 80k and don't!!

I am sure the company reads this thread and they very well should because they need to make major changes in how they manage their sales force which will hopefully help the next generation of reps. Hope this helps... I was employed for the company for 2 years in PA and actually enjoyed my job and working with my regional mgr, but I think realignment has occured so could be some different faces. But the division upper sales mgmt is clueless they have no idea how to sell, respect, and motivate their sales force. Bush League! The company has an excellent product and solid plan with customer service. But they do not nearly compensate you enough for the amount of work that goes into marketing then babysitting each order from start to finish. And at times it could be a very long process. YOU WILL NEVER MAKE 100 thousand. I laugh when I hear that they would promise you that potential. If you could do you think every rep would leave after 1-2 years. They almost act as if they are not expecting you to stay. You can gain some experience in medical sales but thats about it. I will be the first to say I actually enjoyed the job and working with patients but when you bust your butt for $65,000 their are greener pastures elsewhere. This is an entry level postion into sales and will never be more unless the company makes major changes in how they view their sales force. They usually cut your territory which makes you piss off your accounts because you are constantly begging for business instead of building relationships, they have unrealistic quotes setting you up to fail instead of just paying you a % of sales allowing you to establish your territory, the pay is crap, and its takes forever to get splints approved or you end up losing the order b/c of noncoverage.

The only thing I would say about Dynasplint is their customer support or lack there of. It is possible it may be just one person but I have been fighting a billing issue since 2007. I have called our "rep", sent emails, write letters. Even wrote notes on the bills which I assume would go back to the billing deparment but yet not one call, not one letter or response to my request over and over again to get a billing issue resolved.

Found out today that a manager had the info that I was disputing but yet NEVER made any attempt to contact me in any way to help resolve it.

Learned today the local rep was not honest with me.

They may have some good folks working there but it is clear on several levels there are serious customer service / management issues but that is 100% IMO.

I used to work for Dynasplint and they trained us to make it difficult for patients to understand the billing so that you would just get so frustrated that you would pay. Also they are quick to send people to collections even if its thier lack of follow up. Send certified letters and record names of everyone you speak with. Also let your doctor and therapist know all of the trouble you are going through so they can make a decision on future use. Good luck.

It seems like everytime I've ordered one the rep lies to the patient about the copay or patient portion and then my clinic has to deal with it. I have even had Dynasplint reps go behind my back and fit patients with splints I or the doctor didn't even order. That's not an ethical practice by any standard. I have recently stopped ordering this product since my patients get better without it. In my clinical opinion I don't think the patients benefit from it and can get better on thier own. If your a patient save your money for therapy and don't waste it on a Dynasplint.

I am a therapist who actually loves the product, but I will say all my DME orders from splints to estim always have billing issues. We even as a pt clinic have to deal with those same horrible insurance carriers. As an advocate for my patients I have my office verify dme coverage also, its a 2 second call that goes a long way. But as a patient myself you have to be your own advocate I have had bills for my own dr visits and delivery of a child so the insurances will make you jump thru hoops to get claims paid. Hopefully someone sets these insurance companies straight. I think it is a excellent product with some shady reps in areas of the company in 2 years I had 3 different reps. Finally I have a rep that has been here for 2 years that isnt going anywhere. I actually have a great relationship with the regional mgr who was my first rep, 4 reps back, so she is my go to when all else fails. As a therapist I chose my canidates wisely and hate a rep badgering me. SO THAT CAN STOP!

In the end I could survive without the splint but it is a nice adjunct to therapy and a way to combat capitated and high co pays that the insurances are throwing at my patients.

You need 2 splints to work both directions which is a burden to the patient and excessive billing on behalf of the insurance. My patient was a self pay for 2 splints at $790 monthly rental each month. This is way too much for something that looks like it costs $100 to manufacture. I could take that same $790 and benefit my patient much more. My last order the rep tried to get $1305 a month as a rental from one of my patients with a wrist issue. They needed 3 splints. I was able to get another week out of the insurance company and save them that cost. What if any of the previous patients needed the splint for longer than 1 month? 2 months we would be talking about $1580 or $2610! The cost isn't worth the benefit. Especially for a product that is inferior. We can work a little harder with the patients, give HEP's, and motivate them a little more rather than line the pockets of greedy companies.

As a previous rep....Stay far away from this sinking company. They treat thier reps like badly that's why they have 70% turnover. Doctors and therapists are done with this company in many territories. They are sick of the turnover and lack of insurance coverage. The splints shouldn't cost as much as they do. Better yet why don't we get the patients to pay more than they should for a splint that isn't worth it. Patients do well without the splint. They charge patients thousands of dollars for a product it costs hundreds to produce. Then when the patients are done with it they have to return it. Yes even if they have paid for it.

There ARE other splinting manufacturers out there guys??? Dynasplint just happens to be the largest player in the market because they've been around the longest. 78% turnover ratio is pretty bad. There's a reason for this. And it is a hard sell to your patients trying to talk him/her into wearing the splint 8 hours while he/she is sleeping and the monthly bills are stacking - yeah right...?

Make a splint in the clinic for your patient. Save you patient the headache of a huge DME copay, dealing with Dynasplint corporate and making your referral doctor mad by ordering. He expects you to work closely with the patient and get solid progress. If you have a solid POC for the patient you will never need a Dynasplint dinosaur!! The product sucks. As far as 50% improvement that's a joke. All of their studies are old from the 80's and done inhouse with a small group of patients. The product doesn't have solid research behind it only articles written by people with pockets lined by the company. It's therapy that helps the patient not some dumb splint. Come on guys get with the program!!

Our company is the worst of it's kind. Another rep I know is on probation due to his numbers. He has taken a territory and increased the numbers every month he's been in the territory. So why is he on probation? Who knows? His manager says it's due to his numbers but when he says "I've increased my numbers every month I've been here" nothing more is said after that. Confusing huh? He's in line with the company averages and actually is producing more than the territory has ever produced. Stay away from our company it seems like whether you do well or not they're going to find something to get rid of you if they don't like you...

My physician ordered me a Trisma splint and told me the sales rep would handle everything and come to my home to fit me. The physician left the country for a month. After almost a month, I was "fitted" with a Dynasplint trisma splint by a local rep today. Unfortunately s/he placed the splint in my mouth and did not have me redo it. She spent less than 10 minutes with me and met me at a non-medical place. I was told that there were full instructions including how to remove the pads for cleaning. She put it in the box and left. When I called to have her return (less than 5 minutes after she had left) to show me how to clean the device, she did not return my call at first, then refused to come back. I now have several questions.

1. Which way do the pads go----less transparent plastic towards the teeth or away from them?
2. How does one remove the pads for cleaning?
3. Are the pads at the back of the mouth or the front (she did not tell me that)
4. Who is in charge of sales staff and customer satisfaction at corporate? I previously left a voice mail for the managing director (I was told he was in charge) and that was not returned.

Thank you. A very disatisfied customer
Don't overpay for a substandard product, you don't need a Dyansplint. Plus once you're done with it you own it and don't have to return it like a Dynasplint. Just think someone else has has your trismus unit in their mouth. Do you trust it's been cleaned effectively??? You'll be better off check this out: The OraStretch Press and TheraBite jaw motion rehab systems are handheld units designed to stretch a user's jaw to treat trismus, dysfunction and hypomobility. The devices use passive motion to stretch the user's jaw, joint and facial tissues for increased mobility, flexibility, and function.
The OraStretch Press and TheraBite devices provides a curved, anatomically correct stretch for patients to treat or rehabilitate their jaw and temporomandibular joint. By utilizing a jaw motion rehab system, a user can increase their range-of-motion, improve their jaw and joint function, and reduct swelling and pain.

You'll be better off check this out: The OraStretch Press and TheraBite jaw motion rehab systems are handheld units designed to stretch a user's jaw to treat trismus, dysfunction and hypomobility. The devices use passive motion to stretch the user's jaw, joint and facial tissues for increased mobility, flexibility, and function.
The OraStretch Press and TheraBite devices provides a curved, anatomically correct stretch for patients to treat or rehabilitate their jaw and temporomandibular joint. By utilizing a jaw motion rehab system, a user can increase their range-of-motion, improve their jaw and joint function, and reduct swelling and pain.I agree as a patient why would you rent a product from Dynasplint at $495 per month? You could just buy the TheraBite for less and insure that it's sanitary since it's new out of the box.

WOW!! I'm sure glad I did my homework and found this site before I accepted a position with Dynasplint. I could have made a HUGE career mistake. I'll be looking elsewhere now...Thanks everyone!!I wish I found this posting board before I decided to take a position with this company!! But it allowed me the freedom to collect a paycheck while I looked for another job. The best thing I ever did with Dynasplint was give me resignation!!! They screwed me from the beginning right after I signed my employment agreement. Words of wisdom...STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!

I just left this shit ass company and thank god. I did well but the fact that I was under compensated, underappreciated and micromanaged did it for me. So as a sales rep I'm all about the numbers. So here it is: I worked 65 hours per week for 52 weeks which equals 3380 hours per year. I made 50k that year with bonuses. So I was technically making $14.79 per hour.(People without degrees and certifications make this hourly.) Now I got a $450 car allowance and after getting an additonal amount of $200 per month for fitting patients my average car allowance was $650. Or $7800 per year. Pretty good, huh? Well I drove 3000 miles per month on average. With no gas allowance or mileage reinbursement.(according to the IRS allowance I should have received $1500 monthly or $18,000 yearly) My car payment was $550 per month ($6600 per year) for a Honda Civic plus gas. Gas was $150 per week on average or $7800 per year. So add my yearly car payment plus gas and it equals $14,400 per year. So on my travel expenses/car allowance I was minus $6,600 per year. Not to mention oil changes, insurance, tires and other maintenence. Now tally it all up, after expenses I made $43,400 per year selling medical equipment. This is totally out of line with industry standards. I just took a job doing marketing for one of my old clinics and make 65K base, $600 a month car allowance, paid mileage and bonuses. Dynasplint isn't the place to work if you want to make money. Now if you want to work for a company and have your job cost you money be my guest but you were warned.

After experiencing the management from past employment.....NO. As far as territories they all have had loads of turnover and that always hurts business on every level no matter what you do.

Wow. You all have it all wrong. DSI is probably the best company in the history of companies. I have worked for DSI for almost five months now and plan on besting the six month mark to become a seasoned veteran. The management is fantastic, they are always there for you and always know where you are as the fancy new phones have a GPS system. So if I forget how to get to my next appointment, I simply call my boss and she tells me exactly where I am and how to get to where I am going. The training is unparalleled and held in the beautiful city of Cincinnatti, OH. I have gone twice and it is like a vacation! Oddly enough however, most of the people I went to the first round of training were not in attendance . . . weird.? I think that my background has helped me immensly with my Dynasplint success. I started selling Rainbow vaccumms door-to-door, then I hit the big time when I scored my first of three car sales positions. I am an experienced sales person so I may be in a different league that the rest of the posters on this thread. I would not trade anything for my success with Dynasplint. I figure that if I keep up the hard work I will soon be able to buy a new pair of tires for my car and my kids can have Kraft Mac and Cheese instead of store brand.

So dealing with the same issues that all of these posters are I decided to start looking for a new job. So here's the Dynasplint run down as far as compensation 30-40k salary, bonus, $450 car allowance, no gas or mileage, and $125 expense account for lunches and office supplies. I might make total compensation of 55k this year.(I'll have to buy a new car if I was stupid enough to stay since I have put a ton of miles on this one) And right now the territory is badly abused, used and pissed since I'm the 4th new rep in 1 1/2 years. I just started submitting my resume to other companies and recruiter and this is what I've found: "Our client would like to be at a base salary of 75K with a realistic annual commission of 75K that is paid quarterly from dollar one and uncapped plus stock options, $700 car allowance and mileage and unlimited expense account" another good one "Our client would like to be at a base salary of 100K (flexibility DOE) and the commission/bonus is paid quarterly with a 20% of base salary realistic annual commission/bonus target that is uncapped and a 4K/quarter non financial metric related quarterly bonus incentive (calling on the customer..doing your job, etc.) plus a $650/month car allowance + all expenses" I have about 1 year of sales experience and I'm being offered this? Not that I think I don't deserve it but why am I making so much less at Dynasplint? I know why...because they have no idea how to run a company...I wish I started looking sooner. I'm outta here ASAP

I'm a therapist and I have stopped using Dynasplint for this reason. It seems like everytime I've ordered one the rep lies to the patient about the copay or patient portion and then my clinic has to deal with it. I have even had Dynasplint reps go behind my back and fit patients with splints I or the doctor didn't even order. That's not an ethical practice by any standard. I have recently stopped ordering this product since my patients get better without it. In my clinical opinion I don't think the patients benefit from it and can get better on thier own. If your a patient save your money for therapy and don't waste it on a Dynasplint.

I don't blame you for not ordering anymore because this company sucks. I have seen mostly good people work as sales consultant for this company, and people that have made a bad decision on taking the job. Please be courteous and understanding to the rep. 98% of them hate their jobs, and end up in a worse financial situation than when they started due to extremely low pay, horendous gas reimbursement etc. The rep does not lie to the patient about benefits. Benefits are simply "quoted" on the phone. Insurance companies and actual coverage can in fact change at the time of the fitting. So when you see a new Dynasplint rep come into your clinic every 3-4 months, help them find a new job. Keep your eye out for them, because most of them are good people that care.

Dynasplint is sort of like a joke that only the person telling the joke laughs at and covers by saying, "I guess you had to be there." As a "Sales Consultant" for Dynasplint, my most pressing decision after six months was whether to insert the barrell of my .38 in my mouth or put it to my temple. Stear clear of this resume scarring black hole.

Dynasplint is the biggest bait and switch company out there. They promised and showed me actual figures that I could be making in my 2nd year which none are true. I did exactly what I was told, built my territory, sold more units and still I fell short. When I asked why I didn't qualify for a salary increase they had a list of reasons. They said I didn't sell enough of the high dollar units and needed less Medicare business. Well if the company had 40% Medicare business and I have 17% I should be all set. They were just looking for a reason to not give me a salary increase like they originally promised. If you are interviewing with Dynasplint look elsewhere unless you like not being rewarded for your hard work.

This company is very behind the times they are just now getting thier reps cell phones. The used to allow reps to submit thier cell phone bills but wanted to cut costs and have more control. They now monitor your calls, look at you calls and what time you make them and how long they are, have GPS on the phone to track you and have thier corporate leash around you. I think that was thier biggest motivation for getting us phones. They still make us do all of our paperwork by hand and have been promising laptops for the past 2 years since I've been here. I've talked with other reps and they have been promising laptops since 2000. Talk about behind the times!! Be very careful with this position they treat you nice in the beginning and then turn on you like rabid dogs. If I could give a potential canidate any advice it would be to look elsewhere.

That's funny. I would agree about training. My probation cycle was a three month cycle of not meeting my goals. My goal was 45. The first month I did 13. The second I only did 12. I was trying to grow a notoriously dead territory during this time. You know by building realtionships, inservices, follow ups, and demonstrating a good reputation for the product. Or what what you would call in the real world, "sales." The following month I did 26. Next thing you know I was let go. Without any formal probation by my manager. I actually was 6 over my quarterly goal with a great furture of growth. The best part is, without my knowledge that my "team leader" was interviewing behind my back he already hired someboby else! When I asked him about this he stated that he did not believe that my progression was at Dynasplint standards. I replied that I was ahead of my goals. He then stated that I could remain at Dynasplint as a fitter! It is funny because I now work for another medical device company and I am making more than him now for a reputable company where I have hands on sales with doctors. I never let the docs know that I worked for DS but I still poke around for their information in regards to DS and they have zero trust in the company nor the product.

Here's something I grabbed a copy of from my old manager that explains a managers protocol with thier reps:
The variance of salary depends on the specific market conditions of the territory as follows:
- Economic condition of the territory - cost of living
- The availability of appropriate candidates
- Their background and experience
1) There should be a tendency to make the quotas higher in areas in which the salary is higher.
2) In virgin territories, no minimum will be in place for the first three months (includes training month) i.e. minimums start fourth month. In established territories, minimums will be in place the first month after training i.e. second month.
3) 4th month = minimums in place Ė if not reached, placed on POA. If minimums are not reached at Quarter end, place on a PIP. If minimums are not met 2 consecutive Quarters (this could be 5-7 months), give salary reduction or terminate. If reducing salary, evaluate for 30 days and if minimums are not met terminate. Minimums must be met at end of third consecutive quarter or terminate employment.
4) You may terminate employment at anytime if minimums not being met.
5) If starting in mid-quarter, bonus will be pro-rated.

HA!HA!HA! You all are so funny! Why or no I'm sorry...How could you sit here and say that Dynasplint has never done anything wrong? No favoritism..haha! George is a fantastic person on a personal level...and he is nice in the work place he is not mean to anyone...but why is it that the sales consultants are pulling money out of their OWN pocket for in services etc...why is it that they barely get a car allowance...the goals are outrageously unattainable...think before you speak! Why is it that you only get a manager position in corporate if you KNOW someone or are best friends with someone? That is all favoritism...think about it people. Why is it that they fraudulently bill insurance companies...hmm I wonder...Money Hungry?? I think yeah! This would be a fantastic company...if they only had the right people running it.

Sounds like you can't sell and don't want to work. I am also a presidents club rep for Dynasplint. Over the last 3 months, I have spent $0 on inservices. If you want to be the donut delivery boy or contantly be taking lunch orders don't work for Dynasplint. We don't do that! If you didn't get enough car allowance, you weren't selling. Sorry you couldn't hit your goals. I think that your performance had something with you not getting considered for management as well. All of your complaints point right back to you. Why were you fraudulently billing. Dynasplint doesn't bill unless you turn it in! Go cry to someone else. You must have gotten fired! Oh by the way you really have to be bad to get fired.

I'm calling B/S on this one. You said that your probation cycle was three months of not hitting your goals but you were never put on probation. Huh? Look at it this way. You were given 90 days to find another job. A least they didn't just cut you like a lot of other companies would have. Congratulations on the new job but I think you are just bitter. It is definitely a different type of sales. It's not for everyone.

Do not work for this company. Seems like a good company when you visit the website, go through the interview process, and even go to training. The truth is that Dynasplint is a good product to sell. You probably won't complain about the decent salary and car allowance either. But the reality is the company doesn't know how to train sales people and you won't be around for long. If you don't hit your numbers no matter how unrealistic they are you will be gone. There is no sales training if you're not hitting your numbers. If you don't hit they fire you and hire someone else. Put it this way...I went to my first quarterly district/team meeting recently and I realized something when we all went around the table and did introductions. We said our name and how long we had been with the company. Listen to these results. Eleven reps total. 1 rep with the company 7 years, 1 rep for 5 Years, 1 rep for 2 years, 1 rep for 9 months, 4 reps for 6 months, 3 reps for less than 3 months. Eight out of eleven reps have been with the company for less than 9 months. What does that tell you about turnover??? Since that meeting I was let go along with two other reps who weren't hitting their numbers. In the past I have worked in sales and never had a problem hitting numbers, but the numbers Dynasplint expects are unrealistic because they do not properly analyze territory potential (all you current employees know what I am talking about). If you get a high producing territory you may make it as long as the reps at the meeting I went to (anywhere from 2-7 years). I would look for other jobs where you can grow as a professional and/or salesperson. Check Medzilla.com for real jobs. Just trying to help out...

This is funny. you are complaining about getting let go because they didn't hit your numbers. That's pretty much how it works. This is not rocket science. The training is fine. Either you are cut out for it or not! You were not!

I love the positive spin on everything, sounds like a Northern Div mgrs kool aid. There is a lot to love about Dynasplint like the product, hands on patient care, and feeling good about helping people. But again this is sales and if you are in sales you are here for the money. This is a stepping stone to a bigger and better pay day. They have predetermined packages basesd on how many patients get fit each month. So avg base is 45-70 plus an avg of 8-20 k in tier bonuses. 100k and up is unrealistic. Plus you work like a dog, which is fine, your day flys bye, but you re not compensated coorectly compared to the workload. Plus you will spend over your gas allowance. I guarantee that. Franchise comment is a joke. They can cut your territory at any time, decreasing your earning potential, and hold you to same quotas.

Okay, There are many reps with Dynasplint making over 100 K. The more you sell the more you make. If you manage your business properly and have sales ability, you will do well. If not you will be posting negative comments on this board.

Are you kidding me? You definetly should not be in sales. You understand nothing about it!Really? Are you kidding me? Have you ever worked for a real company? If you're at Dynasplint the answer is no. At a real company you get salary increases for being top in sales and meeting your goals. At Dynasplint the more you make the more they ask for. So it's not a reward for meeting your goal. It's simply them milking you for everything you've got until you get so sick and tired of the bullshit and another company scoops you up and treats you like never before. So until you get a real carrer then you clearly know nothing about how sales works.

This is so far from the truth it's not funny. By leaving I have increased my salary by 1 1/2 times and my bonus will be more than I made at Dynasplint last year. Take my advice if you are thinking of hiring on with this company keep looking you'll be happy you did.

Hope this helps... I was employed for the company for 2 years and hated my job and working with my regional mgr. But the division upper sales mgmt is clueless they have no idea how to sell, respect, and motivate their sales force. The company has a marginal product and spotty customer service. They do not compensate you enough for the amount of work that goes into marketing then babysitting each order from start to finish. And at times it could be a very long process. YOU WILL NEVER MAKE 100 THOUSAND. I laugh when I hear that they would promise you that potential. If you could do you think every rep would leave after 1-2 years? They almost act as if they are not expecting you to stay. You can gain some experience in medical sales but thats about it. I busted my butt for $65,000 belive me their are greener pastures elsewhere. This is an entry level postion into sales and will never be more unless the company makes major changes in how they view their sales force. They usually cut your territory which makes you piss off your accounts because you are constantly begging for business instead of building relationships, they have unrealistic quotes setting you up to fail instead of just paying you a % of sales allowing you to establish your territory, the pay is crap, and its takes forever to get splints approved or you end up losing the order because of noncoverage. I wouldn't recommend this position to my worst enemy.

A killing you can't make at Dynasplint. Approximately 3% of the sales force makes 100k per year or more. These reps won't leave these territories. You may kill yourself trying to make money here. If you don't make it here, that does not mean you suck. 80-90% turnover per year, would mean 80-90% of the people out there suck.

Dynasplint truly is the worst medical device company in the nation. They pay thier reps between 30-40k and work you to the bone trying to attain thier unrealistic goals. Work extra hard and you might bonus if you sell 120 splints per quarter that would be a $1000 bonus. If you need 40 for your bonus and the company average is 25 per month how do they expect you to bonus? Management is out to get you. Miss your minimums by even just 1 and you're on probation and looking for a job the next month. Minimums are just as unrealistic as the bonus goals usually 80 per quarter. So start, month one do 10, then 15, then 25, good growth right? Not so fast you're fired for not reaching your minimums. Finally get a doctor to order....guess what? Splint isn't covered by insurance. Get it covered by insurance...splint backordered for 6-8 weeks or more. Need to sell more splints, increase sales.... no marketing material. Corporate is so disconnected from the sales force this company is destin for doom. I wouldn't take a chance with Dynasplint, there are plenty of other choices out there, like Mc Donalds or Taco Bell.

Now I got a $450 car allowance and after getting an additonal amount of $200 per month for fitting patients my average car allowance was $650. Or $7800 per year. Pretty good, huh? Well I drove 3000 miles per month on average. With no gas allowance or mileage reinbursement.(according to the IRS allowance I should have received $1500 monthly or $18,000 yearly) My car payment was $550 per month ($6600 per year) for a Honda Civic plus gas. Gas was $150 per week on average or $7800 per year. So add my yearly car payment plus gas and it equals $14,400 per year. So on my travel expenses/car allowance I was minus $6,600 per year. Not to mention oil changes, insurance, tires and other maintenence. Now tally it all up, after expenses I made $43,400 per year selling medical equipment. This is totally out of line with industry standards. I just took a job doing marketing for one of my old clinics and make 65K base, $600 a month car allowance, paid mileage and bonuses. Dynasplint isn't the place to work if you want to make money. Now if you want to work for a company and have your job cost you money be my guest but you were warned." Need I say more?

These are the kind of memos Dynasplint loves to give their new people:

"You only confirmed 15 contracts in which is 5 below your minimum of 20.

The fact that you are not producing at a significant level is frustrating. I appreciate the effort you are putting in to improving yourself as a sales consultant so you can better grow your territory. The time is now. I hope you can continue the momentum and grow your business even more.

Your sales activity sheet shows 11 carryover orders, 14 new orders and 15 fit to date. The productivity of your territory is extremely low. There is no reason for such low productivity. Remember, significant improvement from one month to the next is imperative! "

I've only been here for 2 months!! The territory was doing 4-6 per month before I got here. I think management has a grudge against me....

I use to work with DynaSplint. I did well, top 15% and still never topped 85K. There is to much hands on and follow up. The more you sell the more follow up you have with patients and it limits you ability to sell more. DynaSplint is a good for some experience if your desperate but not a retirement planner.

Dynasplint is the biggest bait and switch company out there. They promised and showed me actual figures that I could be making in my 2nd year which none are true. I did exactly what I was told, built my territory, sold more units and still I fell short. When I asked why I didn't qualify for a salary increase they had a list of reasons. They said I didn't sell enough of the high dollar units and needed less Medicare business. Well if the company had 40% Medicare business and I have 17% I should be all set. They were just looking for a reason to not give me a salary increase like they originally promised. If you are interviewing with Dynasplint look elsewhere unless you like not being rewarded for your hard work.

Dynasplint is a horrible company to work for. The salary is super low for the medical industry and the work load is way above and beyond what you are getting paid. The car allowance is awful especially since you don't even get mileage reimbursement. They expect you to reach your quota each month but don't give you the materials to do so. Inventory is backordered umugust other things, yet somehow the sales reps are still held accountable for their numbers. Why don't they make any changes or take action at the corporate level. Obviously someone is slacking off up there or just doesn't know how to run a business. So many customers don't want to use Dynasplint anymore because it takes too long to get splint authorized, the splints are covered, and lets face it, $700 a month for a shoulder unit, yeah right, who the heck want to pay that. That is what some people pay for rent each month. Give me a break. Oh and someone mentioned training. What training. If you transition to pharma then you will see some good training! Dynasplint is not a company I would ever recommend for anyone. It seems to be going further and further down hill. Someone needs to get it together and realize what the reps do for the company and start showing them some respect like the people up at corporate get.

She was my manager for a short time. All she did was bitch at me over the phone. And to top it all off I begged her to work with me for 6 months....she never showed....Well, she worked with me and be careful what you wish for. It was a miserable day and my accounts hated her. I took my account profile book and moved on after that grim day......

Cut the whining and do something about it. Become an independent distributor for Dynasplint's main competitor Joint Active Systems?? They pay straight commission with no micromanagement and the sky is the limit on your earning potential.

Easy also since I brought all of my contacts with me. I thought I would mind the commissions only but the sky is the limit and after this year I will double what I was making at Dynasplint.

Some people say these boards are biased but it a good place to find candid, no b/s information to help you make choices. One wish is that I skipped over Dynashit and went where I'm currently. Hope you guys can make the same decision. Trust me you'll age at a less rapid rate..

Thanks for the info.Save yourself the headache. They only pay you 30-40k base salary with a $450 car allowance and no gas or mileage. They also only give you $125 per month for inservices which doesn't help at all. After the 2000-3000 miles you drive every month fitting patients, marketing and doing follow ups you don't make any money here. Don't be fooled by these posts the positive posts are from the corporate people scanning them and adding thier positive spin on it. Word of caution if it's positive it's a corporate person if it's negative its one of the current or previous employees. Would a company with a turnover of 80% and rep tenure of less than one year be lying...don't think so. You can get hired on and in about a year if you stay that long you would be a senior rep since everyone leaves at that point. It's filled with incompetent managers and a sinking ship. Stay away there are plenty of real companies to work for out there..

Thanks for the info. On the job description it states that the salary is between $40-$50K. I know you said the base is only $ 30 - $40K. So is the info incorrect or have the changed their starting salaries?

Dynasplint is by far the worst career mistake I have ever made. I took a pay cut leaving my previous position thinking that I was getting my foot in the med. equip. sales door. Instead I received a pink slip after about eight months. There are two routes Dynasplint should explore if success is the ultimate goal:

1. Hire two reps per territory at the beginning, one to sell and one to fit and follow up.

or . . .

2. Cut sales reps all together and allow MD's to order direct.

I only wish I would have found this thread before signing my contract with Dynasplint. Which by the way, if you are consideing a position take notice of the negativity that the contract exudes. The word "termination" is stated no less than once per page and the contract is five pages long.

So they advertise $40-50k get you to the interview and say "based on your experience we would like to offer you $38k and its a starting point and you can get salary increases along the way during your first year". All lies. They say that but never do it and you end up getting screwed. They say it costs them money and your first year is like a gift from them. Yeah, right. You work for every penny of whatever salary they give you and then after that should have been paid double of whatever you made. Be very careful if you are even remotely thinking about signing on..If youcould wait for something better I would if I were you.

I don't even think Dynasplint knows where there salary range is. The posting I saw varied like so:
$40-42k
$35-45k
$35-42k
$42-50k
$37.5-42.5k
$40-45k
$36-42k
$40-50k
A company in despairity has ranges like this for the same position. They don't really know what to pay but know that they need people bad. They are all over the board and have no consistently. The more they pay you the larger your numbers will be. So don't think they are doing you a favor by paying you more. They set all of thier new people up to fail. Heck with there turnover at 80%, 8 out of 10 new hires will.

I don't even think Dynasplint knows where there salary range is. The posting I saw varied like so:
$40-42k
$35-45k
$35-42k
$42-50k
$37.5-42.5k
$40-45k
$36-42k
$40-50k
A company in despairity has ranges like this for the same position. They don't really know what to pay but know that they need people bad. They are all over the board and have no consistently. The more they pay you the larger your numbers will be. So don't think they are doing you a favor by paying you more. They set all of thier new people up to fail. Heck with there turnover at 80%, 8 out of 10 new hires will.I just saw on Fox Business that the average individual income in the US is $48k. So how can you sell medical equipment and make less than the US average? Something is wrong here. I would run as fast as you can....away that is!!!

Dynasplint is going in the shitter, and my suggestion to you is to look at other opportunities. I feel that they are much better positions out there to get medical experience to move onto bigger and better things. Let me put a few things in perspective: Both the ortho and the podiatry divisions( both replaced 88% of their sales force respectively last year and they are on track to do the same this year. Nobody stays at this hell hole for mainly two reasons: it is impossible to make 100K and when you do you will never duplicate it in back to back years due to chickenshit pay structure, and the intense micromangement and big brother mentality that management has. Which leads me to my rant on management. In Dynasplint they would never hire qualified managers. Their definition of a qualified manager is a manager from Russel Strovers or a manager who ran a sprint store while they have been many qualified reps who have years of experience in medical getting passed up. I was ranked in the top 10% back to back years and was actuallty written up in the 4th qtr and put on a plan for not hitting my goals. Finally, they have no compassion for any of their employees. When you ask in your interview if anyone from New Orleans got any assistance for Katrina. While other great companies where giving out money, placing them and their families in temp housing, adjusting their qutoas etc. Not Dynasplint, not only did they not get one dime in help, but they left their qutoas as they were and did not make shit in 2005. Some where put on plans Sorry ass company with no heart, if you ask me. There was another rep that lost his wife and grandmother in a month, obviously the rep was distracted fell behind on a few things, and his sales sufferred, they fired him two months later. Again, just another example of no compassion for their employees. Again, I can not reinforce enough of my utter dislike of this company. There are much better opportunties out there than Dynasplint. Best of luck.

I just ran into a Dynasplint rep on friday in a doctor's office.. I wanted to share my experience incase anyone was considering this company.

This rep HATED his job. he had been there a little over a year, and was still making the same money as he started. they wanted to move him into his second year "package" but decided to wait it out a little longer, and not make the change just yet.

He has described the job as working 50-60 hour work weeks. constantly calling/following up with patients, and correcting billing errors. Not to mention doctors think you have the same budget for doing in-services. the reality is the company is too cheap for that, and only give the reps $125 a month to market (and this NEVER changes!!!) what a sad amount of money!

this young man has been applying all over the place to get out of this train wreck of a company, but it's a diffculy job market, and it's better to have a job then to have no money coming in.

I asked about manager ride along, and he signed and said he dreaded those days the most. spending 2-3 days with a manager you can't stand. evidently his manager has "napolian syndrome" i feel for him...

just thought I would share my $0.02 on the topic. sounds like there are many better choices out there!!!

If you work here and are going to give your 2 week notice, don't. I gave my notice to my manager and he told me that my last day would be the day I gave my notice. So if your trying to be professional, don't. They won't even extend you the courtesy of 2 weeks. So after I start my other job then I'll give them notice. The last rep in my territory told me that he went to training for another company and when he came back he quit. Smart cat!!

How many people enjoy starting their work day, wondering...hmmm am I going to get fired today or are they going to miss the big target they put on my forehead! NOT ME! I have respect for George, I have respect for this company in general...however I do not have respect for some of the people running this company! Sometimes I wonder what were they thinking hiring them or promoting them as managers...if they can't do your job than how on earth are they going to manage you while you do your job?!? This company is a crock of SHIT! They are not consistent with anything...they tell you what you need to do to get your job done and then you do what you're told...and then wa'bam..you're doing it wrong...make up your mind! I work for this company for almost 2 years and not even 6 months into it I had to be put on anti-anxiety medication because of all the stress. Im sure there are people at corporate looking at all of this right now...because they can't find anything else to spend their money on...hmmm lets hire someone to look online to see who's looking for a job and what's being posted on these blogs. HAHA well no matter what they see on these blogs...do they try to improve anything...NOPE! They need to start paying attention to how their employee's feel and how they are being treated rather than OMG lets con this doctor into signing this form. What comes around goes around...you treat your employees like shit and like they are some kind of Dog...it will come around one day...and when that day comes...i will honestly feel bad for George and his family because they do not deserve it...they are good people...but they probably dont even know half the shit that goes on with this company.What happened with w/c? I am in the middle of a workers comp case here and its looking like I will be losing my job over it. I feel like DSI is treating me like a con because I happened get hurt on the job- ER trip and all! And I also got the PIP notice of term/ salary reduction following the accident! When I started, I, like others, took a leap and cut in pay, for a company I thought was ethical and profitable. Its been 6mos for me, and I am wondering "What have I done? I should have stuck with my clinical background!"

I had a successful territory and was with the company for a long time. I made good money but worked for every bit of it. I was approached by a large company that offered me a sales position that doubled my current salary. Yes, you read correctly doubled. So I here I was at Dynasplint working long hours dealing with all of the situations that went with a multi sales product and boom someone offered me this. In Dynasplint you have to sell to the therapist to get the order, then the doctor to sign off and then the patient to pay and wear the splint. If any of this breaks down your done. The order would go away and you would have to start all over again. So I decided to say goodbye to a company that I worked so hard for and thought I was getting taken care of financially by but that couldn't have been further from the truth. It sickens me to think of all of the money I made the company the years I worked there and then another company that doesn't even know me offers me double. WOW....I guess the new job was the best thing that ever came out of Dynasplint.

Not to mention the dynasplint is totally a piece of crap. This is an insurance scam and should be investigated thoroughly. As well as The woman in the billing dept that calls herself a patient account rep. I would never refer this device to anyone and have told my surgeon about my experience in dealing with this company. You can rest assure I am spreading the word in Fort Worth Texas about this disastrous product and the company that stands behind it.This information was taken right off of the Better Business Bureau website:


Customer Complaint History-Dynasplint score C+
When considering complaint information, please take into account the company's size and volume of transactions, and understand that the nature of complaints and a firm's responses to them are often more important than the number of complaints.
BBB processed a total of 13 complaints about this company in the last 36 months, our standard reporting period. Of the total of 13 complaints closed in 36 months, 7 were closed in the last year.
These complaints concerned :
6 regarding Billing or Collection Issues
2 - Failure to correct billing errors
2 - Improper collection practices
2 - None of the Above - Credit, Billing or Collection Complaint Issue

4 regarding Customer Service Issues
1 - Failure to provide promised assistance or support for products or services
3 - Failure to respond to phone calls or written requests for assistance or support

1 regarding Sales Practice Issues
1 - Sales presentation used dishonest sales practices

2 regarding Service Issues
2 - None of the Above - Service Complaint Issue

The stats speak for themselves. Hummm....also Dynasplint goes by the name Landmark Medical. I wonder why they do that? Trying to hide something? Or run away from something?

I am facing unemployment as my current job is closing. I have an Ex Phys background and sales experience with NO budget - all cold calls and just showing up to businesses. I had a phone screening for a position with Dynasplint. After reading through all of these posts, I'd love to know if it is worth it to take this position. I am searching fast for something to get me through, so I don't have to go on unemployment. Any further thoughts on using Dynasplint as a stepping stone?

Any further thoughts on using Dynasplint as a stepping stone?If you are absolutely desparate then take the job. Dynasplint is desperate for employees and have an 80% turnover rate. Which translates to 8 out of 10 people leave within 1 year. It's easy to get hired, training is a breeze and go fluff around and get paid while you interview elsewhere and find a real job. Just know that it's a temporary means to an end and you are just collecting a pay check. It's a difficult sell and sometimes management can suck but if you can take it go ahead.
Then again sometimes collecting unemployment pays more than working for Dynasplint. At Dynasplint you'll pay for your own gas and car repairs and will have a limited budget for inservices/lunches of $125 month. Office expenses are in the $125 also so you'll be shelling out cash for inservices/lunches and offices supplies out of your own pocket. You don't get mileage either so don't plan on it. Its a tough decision because no job is almost better than Dynaslint. Good luck.

6-24-2009 7:09pm...Thats some funny stuff. I had some pretty strange things happen in my interview also. First off we met at a hotel lobby then the manager wanted to go up to his room for the interview. I felt uncomfortable and really insisted that we do the interview in the hotel lobby. What manager of a company does interviews in thier private room that they are staying in? Anyway, there was also a role play and we did it about 5 times and he was totally distracted by his cell phone. Then had me sell him a pen. What the hell? I then had to write a letter to a doctor that I couldn't get in front of. I was like are you serious? I asked what for and he said to check my writing skills. I thought was this a medical sales job not a creative writing position? They asked me to call the divisional manager and after speaking with her I made my decision to go with another company. They were putting me through all of this for a mere 42k? I don't think so...

Don't they realize that without sales there wouldn't be any corporate?I have been at Dynasplint for 2 years and its always been like that. The reps in the Southern Division do all of the work and the managers went on a cruise to the Bahamas. The managers always go away and drink and party while the reps are left behind to sell more so the managers can go on thier next trip. Hey since the sales force works so hard to sell why don't we make them work even harder? The company had added so many bogus corporate jobs over the years it makes me sick....Communications director, Inventory Specialists, CFO's, analysts, IT whatevers, you name it if it has a bogus title Dynasplint has it. Why don't they spend some of that salary money on the sales force and see if they can keep people around longer? Wouldn't take much and probably less than all of these corporate positions.

I saw this on another post and just wanted to comment on how backwards of a company Dynasplint is. "This is what kind of company Dynasplint is: I sent my weekly paperwork to my manager on Sunday night like I always do. (They don't believe in computers still in the stone age.) Then all of the sudden my manager shows up at my first appointment on Monday morning. I was totally put off by this. I asked why and he told me to make sure I was doing my job and calling on who I said I was going to. Isn't there any trust? My numbers are great....He said he often does this and if he doesn't find you where you say your going to be you can get fired. Huh? In a sales job things change all of the time and schedules shift. So if I'm not exactly at the place my schedule says I can get fired? This was HUGE for me in making up my mind to start looking for another job. I hope my manager see this post so he can see what an ass he is. What a backwards company to work for....."
This is total harrasment and should be looked into by an attorney.

Do not work for this company. Seems like a good company when you visit the website, go through the interview process, and even go to training. The truth is that Dynasplint is a good product to sell. You probably won't complain about the decent salary and car allowance either. But the reality is the company doesn't know how to train sales people and you won't be around for long. If you don't hit your numbers no matter how unrealistic they are you will be gone. There is no sales training if you're not hitting your numbers. If you don't hit they fire you and hire someone else. Put it this way...I went to my first quarterly district/team meeting recently and I realized something when we all went around the table and did introductions. We said our name and how long we had been with the company. Listen to these results. Eleven reps total. 1 rep with the company 7 years, 1 rep for 5 Years, 1 rep for 2 years, 1 rep for 9 months, 4 reps for 6 months, 3 reps for less than 3 months. Eight out of eleven reps have been with the company for less than 9 months. What does that tell you about turnover??? Since that meeting I was let go along with two other reps who weren't hitting their numbers. In the past I have worked in sales and never had a problem hitting numbers, but the numbers Dynasplint expects are unrealistic because they do not properly analyze territory potential (all you current employees know what I am talking about). If you get a high producing territory you may make it as long as the reps at the meeting I went to (anywhere from 2-7 years). I would look for other jobs where you can grow as a professional and/or salesperson. Check Medzilla.com for real jobs. Just trying to help out...

I just ran into a Dynasplint rep on friday in a doctor's office.. I wanted to share my experience incase anyone was considering this company.

This rep HATED his job. he had been there a little over a year, and was still making the same money as he started. they wanted to move him into his second year "package" but decided to wait it out a little longer, and not make the change just yet.

He has described the job as working 50-60 hour work weeks. constantly calling/following up with patients, and correcting billing errors. Not to mention doctors think you have the same budget for doing in-services. the reality is the company is too cheap for that, and only give the reps $125 a month to market (and this NEVER changes!!!) what a sad amount of money!

this young man has been applying all over the place to get out of this train wreck of a company, but it's a diffculy job market, and it's better to have a job then to have no money coming in.

I asked about manager ride along, and he signed and said he dreaded those days the most. spending 2-3 days with a manager you can't stand. evidently his manager has "napolian syndrome" i feel for him...

just thought I would share my $0.02 on the topic. sounds like there are many better choices out there!!!

This is how horrible of a company Dynasplint is: Most sales positions make you sign an agreement with the salary, numbers, compensation, etc. But Dynasplint brings it to another level. My manager e-mailed me a memo putting me on probation citing a paragraph out of my "employment agreement". Here it is: "Please refer to your employment agreement. On page two, paragraph 3, ďIf at any time, I or my designate determine that you are not producing a sufficient number of billed contracts for any given period of time, to enable you to fulfill your minimum quota requirements for any particular quarter, possible actions are probation, salary reduction, and/or termination. " What kind of company throws this in your face? I have been building my territory and numbers are increasing. So what's the problem? Everyone in the territory is angry at Dynasplint for various reasons and I have to work through it. I still can't believe that a company would throw a paragraph from an employment agreement at me. I wish I never got involved with Dynasplint. This type of frustration isn't worth it in an economy. My manager told me that I should start looking for a new job....

I worked for DynaSHIT for about nine months and hated it from the start. The employment contract left a bad taste in my mouth (the word "terminate" is mentioned on nearly every page). After being sent into the field I soon realized that the product and the service is viewed as a joke by most clinics. The splints are utilized as a last resort all too often and the patients being fitted are expecting a miracle product. The average time post fitting that most patients would call me personally with questions, concerns and complaints was at most one week. Quitting a job during a recession was a difficult decision but one that I never cease to regret, especially when I peruse this thread and read the vindicating posts. If you are considering a job with Dynasplint I hope that you have taken the time to research and hopefully stumbled across this long list of reasons NOT to sign on the dotted line.

I also worked for Dynasplint for a long time. I got out when the getting was good (sooner than later). They treat thier employees like crap and don't think anything of it. Their philosophy is "oh well we'll just get a replacement". No wonder why they have such high turnover. Last I heard it was around 80%.....yes you read correctly 80%. This equates to 8 out of 10 people leave the company. Oh, and another interesting stat is that most or all leave within 6 months. Check the posting boards they aren't expanding they are trying to fill all of thier open positions. Currently there are 25 open sales positions advertised on career builder. Out of the 125 total sales consultants having 25 open is 20% of thier sales force is non-existent. It's been that way for years and years as long as I could remember from working there. They are driving people away in droves and lose quality people all of the time. Once people get started with the company if they are smart they realize that it's twisted culture and screwed up attitude toward the reps isn't how a good company is run. And if you think that Dynasplint is a stepping stone think again. Other repuatable companies want to see real experience from a real company. Other medical equipment companies don't respect Dyansplint and rightfully so it's not a good company. So rather than having to expalin why you worked for Dynasplint it's better just to not have it on your resume. Heck my new manager told me he would have rather had used car salesman, copier sales, rental car salesman than Dynasplint on my resume. I'm glad he gave me a chance but Dynasplint on my resume didn't help one bit it actually hurt. Read the posts about the company and if you're smart you won't make the mistake that 8 out of 10 people did!!

I worked for Dynasplint and left after 6 months for the following reasons:

Salary is 40k/year base your 1st year with only a $450/month car allowance (be prepared to drive the tires off your car). They pay for cell phone up to a certain point, but do not re-imburse for fax or internet in spite of requiring you to have both to do your job. They will tell you that you can make $100k + your second year primarily from splints on rent, but you will never see that. You will have either already left or your patients will have died or could not tolerate the splint (the geriatric patient is your primary sale). Only managers will see the rent commission from the splints you sold, so in essence, it is a glorified Ponzi scheme.

Dynasplint emphasizes high pressure sales strategies. They call it being "pleasantly pushy". They require you to call on 8 -12 accounts a day, everyday and to talk with as many decision makers as possible. You are to walk in un-announced or without an appointment and attempt to speak with therapists, nurses, business office personel, and doctors. I personally know of reps who are not allowed in certain facilities because they were seen as harassing the therapists while they were treating patients. I now work for an othotics company and call on the same facilities that I did with Dynasplint and the majority of Rehab Managers have confided to me that they think Dynasplint is one of the most un-professional vendors out there.

The sales quotas are unrealistic and unattainable for all but a few Reps, so be prepared to be put on "Probation". My one time on probation, they started listing my job on Career Builder and Monster. Every person in my training class had by the third month either quit or were put on probation. That is why there is a 70% turnover rate at Dynasplint.

Finally, if you have a clinical background, I strongly encourage you to stay away. There are far better sales opportunities out there where you do not have to leave your professional ethics at the door. I am a therapist and my main concern has always been my patients. Dynasplint cares nothing about the patient, only the sale. My manager once questioned me on why the majority of my patients were only getting one splint. When I explained that the Therapist usually only requested one or the clinical condition warranted only one, I was told "all patients should be getting more than one splint" and "that was the only way I was going to get my numbers up". They have the ethics of a Used-Car Dealer. This may sound like a bitter rant from a disgruntled ex-employee, but I assure you it is not. You only have to speak with someone who has worked at Dynasplint or read other posts in this forum to see that this is a pretty accurate discription of the working environment at Dynasplint. I do not want anyone to make the same mistake that hundreds of others and myself have made.

At Dynasplint you have to sell the product to the therapist and then to the doctor and then the patient. So you could get the terapist and doctor on board but if the patient doesn't agree you just did all of that work for nothing. Usually if the patient's insurance doesn't cover it (which is common) the patient has to pay and doesn't want to. I don't blame them the benefits don't outweigh the costs. So you could have done all of that work chasing the order and get to the end where you contact the patient and bam...the orders lost! Patients often do research online and mostly all of them don't have anything good to say about the product...check this out:

Here's what patients say about this so called wonderful product. FYI- Patients don't like it and either do the doctors or therapists:

"I didn't start using it until Jan.16th. Almost 2 whole months after my knee surgery
. I am very unhappy with it. I even had to quit using the straightening splint as it pulled on my hip so bad I couldn't stand it. I feel like the flex slpint is just as bad, and I have not improved at all since I started using them. I am going to quit using the flex as they want me to use it at least 6 hours a day, and I can't sleep with it, and don't have that much time for it. I use it about 4 huors a day, and can hardly walk after I use it."

"Lynne, I used a Dyna splint for 3 months with a hand/wrist injury. Unfortunetly I was miserable using it and I benefited only slightly. I worked up to 10-12 hours at the highest tension so I gave it every possible chance. I hope you have a better results."

"Thanks for the reply. I've been unable to find much other info. on the dynasplint. I went to the podiatrist yesterday, he's telling me to wear it as much as I can tolerate but I'm having a lot of trouble wearing it at night. I think it would be fine if you sleep on your back but I'm a side sleeper. I seem to fight it and wake up sore and take it off? I'm making no progress but is that just time and not the splint? I've had pain in this foot for two years but this flare up is only 4 1/2 weeks old - I have a partial tear. My podiatrist mentioned that the people that tend to do well with night splints seem to have achilles involvement, I don't...will keep the splint for the month then return it if I can't tolerate it. The doctor was less than impressed with the Dynasplint. Also this was not covered by my insurance."

"The doc says it is the most painful of the knee braces. It is designed to place a constant torque pressure to pull your knee in to a constant state of flexion while you are relaxing..such as while you sleep. I have not made a night without major help...some time a club to the head would be more appealing....it is barbaric.... It is designed for stiff knees to help stretch the soft tissue to release scar tissue. You have to gradually build up to where you are able to wear it 8 hrs and when you are no longer stiff for at least an hour after removing the brace....you tighten up the struts and the pressure gets greater. I am trying to do it with tens, ice and lots of drugs. I feel it is not helpinng and it just hurts like hell.. "

Patient experience speaks for itself. You as a sales consultant not only have to sell it to the clinicians but also to the patients. With results like these there won't be much success there!!

This company sucks...here's why...they don't have the supply to back up your mandatory - unatainable quotas. Plus, if you build up your territory to the point where you can start to make some real money - THEY CUT YOUR TERRITORY IN HALF! Now you have to start all over again and LOSE all the accounts you just built up. This is how the company avoids paying you for profit sharing. Back in the day, reps had an entire state to sell any division, ortho, neuro, podiatry, etc.... with no boundries and no counterparts. Now they cut everything up and expect unrealsitic goals based on results for all divisions instead of just one. Long story short...THE COMPANY HAS A 70% THAT'S RIGHT A 70% TURNOVER RATE WITHIN 1 YEAR! OUCH! Do you get the picture now...I did... that's why I left after only 3 months. Good luck

Do you want to work for the worst company on the planet? Then work for Dynasplint or Dyna-shit as so commonly called. This company does everything it can to degrade it's employees. They start off by paying the sales force less than industry standard. They also belittle the employees and it almost seems like they try to get rid of people and that's thier goal. Heck with 80% turnover I guess they have that equation figured out! All of the accounts are really mad and frustrated with you as thier new sales consultant. I guess they should be since you many as well be the 5th or 6th rep that has been in the territory. They are on the fast track to disaster with all of the issues they have with thier sales force I wonder if they will get a bail out or just close the doors?

HA! I had and still have a lawyer! W/C denied me, Dynasplint backed them, claiming ideopathic injury. The lawyer had the nerve to introduce against me, the fact that I was on 'probation' citing my PIP. He didnt mention that this PIP was put into effect AFTER my accident. He tried to twist the circumstances around my accident to reflect me badly. That I injured myself on purpose because I was at risk of losing my job! UNBELIEVABLE! This accident was back in April. I since have had surgery, and I am in rehab after ankle reconstruction. Heres the kicker- I suffered a contracture after being in a cast post surgery. The therapists wouldnt have dreamt of putting me in a Dynasplint. And now- well they know the story and have formed their own opinions....
I was officially terminated June 30th. I had court today, and should know in a couple days if the Judge finds Work Comp liable or not.

Dynasplint is by far the worst career mistake I have ever made. I took a pay cut leaving my previous position thinking that I was getting my foot in the med. equip. sales door. Instead I received a pink slip after about eight months. There are two routes Dynasplint should explore if success is the ultimate goal:

1. Hire two reps per territory at the beginning, one to sell and one to fit and follow up.

or . . .

2. Cut sales reps all together and allow MD's to order direct.

I only wish I would have found this thread before signing my contract with Dynasplint. Which by the way, if you are consideing a position take notice of the negativity that the contract exudes. The word "termination" is stated no less than once per page and the contract is five pages long.

Well I see that nothing has changed except the turnover rate! I worked for Dynasplint for 3 months about five years ago. It was the same then as it is now. Funny they don't have any money to pay their sales reps (who by the way drive the business) but George and company can afford to advertise behind home plate at Camden Yards! Geez, I couldn't get out of there fast enough!

Amen brother!! I worked there in 2002 and the best day of my career was the day I left. It was funny because when I called my manager to resign she wasn't at all shocked, surprised or emotional. She actually asked where I was going and if they were anymore positions open!! Imagine that she knew it was bad and wanted to get out as much as I did!

The managers at this company are clueless. My manager worked with me after 6 months of "being too busy" and didn't have any advice fo me. He told me to keep doing what I was doing. Actually he told me one thing and that was to do more paperwork to track my patients. Which has nothing to do with making more money which has been the goal since the beginning. He brought me out to lunch and then I dropped him off at his car. We worked from 10-1 including an hour lunch. How's this going to help me? He told me to get less Medicare business, increase my shoulder and supination/pronation sales and to keep my splints in rent longer and then I could get a raise. I did all of that and called him after 4 months of success and nothing. He said right now I need to sell more and I can get more. My numbers are good over the company average and better than most. I know I'm bringing in way more for the company than they are paying me. I have seen the salary charts but my manager refuses to increase my salary. It seems like the harder I work the more the company and my manager make and I'm left out. I need to start looking for another company that takes care of thier employees.

This is one of the biggest scam companies out there. At the interview they show you how much money you can make and the potential of the territory. Well that all changes once you get in the field. See they pay you 30-40k per year plus bonus which you might get your first quarter since your numbers are low but forget about it after that. Your numbers increase every quarter after that which makes them unattainable. And then if you manage to stay around past year 1 you might get a salary increase but guess what? Your numbers increase with any kind of salary increase. That's no reward! Then year 2 you get commissions off of the insurance collections. Guess what? You have NO control over that. Some underpaid, careless, lazy person at corporate collects your money that your supposed to get bonused on. Guess what? Doesn't happen. They could care less about collecting your money so you can get the bonus you worked for. Most of the sales reps don't make it this far and usually are fired or quit at the 1-6 month mark. Once they get out in the field the accounts are so mad from the turnover and there is so much damage control you don't get orders. Then your manager rides with you and they are clueless on how to help you but assure you that "if your numbers don't increase we'll have to let you go". That goes real far when trying to motivate a new sales consultant to achieve their goals. If you have the opportunity to interview or get hired with Dynasplint run as fast as you can and keep interviewing...you can do better trust me

DON'T quite as an ATC or Therapist.

DON'T apply to Dynasplint.

There are MANY other jobs that will take of their employees better. Do you really think $38 k base with the potential to earn anywhere from $1-15k over the year is worth it?

Think about your car. you drive ALL those miles on it for a tiny car allowance?? your trade in value will stink!

Don't make the mistake of even applying to this company. it's nothing but a black hole...

How many people enjoy starting their work day, wondering...hmmm am I going to get fired today or are they going to miss the big target they put on my forehead! NOT ME! I have respect for George, I have respect for this company in general...however I do not have respect for some of the people running this company! Sometimes I wonder what were they thinking hiring them or promoting them as managers...if they can't do your job than how on earth are they going to manage you while you do your job?!? This company is a crock of SHIT! They are not consistent with anything...they tell you what you need to do to get your job done and then you do what you're told...and then wa'bam..you're doing it wrong...make up your mind! I work for this company for almost 2 years and not even 6 months into it I had to be put on anti-anxiety medication because of all the stress. Im sure there are people at corporate looking at all of this right now...because they can't find anything else to spend their money on...hmmm lets hire someone to look online to see who's looking for a job and what's being posted on these blogs. HAHA well no matter what they see on these blogs...do they try to improve anything...NOPE! They need to start paying attention to how their employee's feel and how they are being treated rather than OMG lets con this doctor into signing this form. What comes around goes around...you treat your employees like shit and like they are some kind of Dog...it will come around one day...and when that day comes...i will honestly feel bad for George and his family because they do not deserve it...they are good people...but they probably dont even know half the shit that goes on with this company.That's funny. I would agree about training. My probation cycle was a three month cycle of not meeting my goals. My goal was 45. The first month I did 13. The second I only did 12. I was trying to grow a notoriously dead territory during this time. You know by building realtionships, inservices, follow ups, and demonstrating a good reputation for the product. Or what what you would call in the real world, "sales." The following month I did 26. Next thing you know I was let go. Without any formal probation by my manager. I actually was 6 over my quarterly goal with a great furture of growth. The best part is, without my knowledge that my "team leader" was interviewing behind my back he already hired someboby else! When I asked him about this he stated that he did not believe that my progression was at Dynasplint standards. I replied that I was ahead of my goals. He then stated that I could remain at Dynasplint as a fitter! It is funny because I now work for another medical device company and I am making more than him now for a reputable company where I have hands on sales with doctors. I never let the docs know that I worked for DS but I still poke around for their information in regards to DS and they have zero trust in the company nor the product.

If you currently work for Dynasplint and are thinking about leaving make sure you do after you get your bonus and/or commission check. I got screwed and left before I got them and called up to corporate and they said "too bad you left, it was explained in your contract"....click...The contract they have you sign is very sneaky. How can you bust your ass and earn your bonus and commissions then not get it? Good question. Dynasplint is so shady and could care less about their sales consultants.

I left Dynasplint to work for a pharmceutical company making double what I was making. And as far as my bonus its like I get my bonus now just for showing up and doing my job. At Dynasplint I had to fight every step of the way to get my bonus and they were never really that great. As far as training there is no comparison at Dynasplint I only trained for a week. My current companys training is 6 weeks then I shadow another rep for a week and then my manager works with me for another week. The company I work for now really wants me to succeed and make money. Dynasplint just threw me out there and if I failed (which most reps do) they fire you and replace you. They don't even care if you are successful and make money. Its like Dynasplint prides itself on you being miserable. Excess conference calls, micro management from regional to divisional, inventory, technology, you name it....misery. At my new company I don't worry about any of these things. They truly want me to be happy and do well. That's more than I can say for Dynasplint. If you are still part of Dynasplint...I'm sorry. But there are better companies out there and once you leave you'll be truly happy.

I just ran into a Dynasplint rep on friday in a doctor's office.. I wanted to share my experience incase anyone was considering this company.

This rep HATED his job. he had been there a little over a year, and was still making the same money as he started. they wanted to move him into his second year "package" but decided to wait it out a little longer, and not make the change just yet.

He has described the job as working 50-60 hour work weeks. constantly calling/following up with patients, and correcting billing errors. Not to mention doctors think you have the same budget for doing in-services. the reality is the company is too cheap for that, and only give the reps $125 a month to market (and this NEVER changes!!!) what a sad amount of money!

this young man has been applying all over the place to get out of this train wreck of a company, but it's a diffculy job market, and it's better to have a job then to have no money coming in.

I asked about manager ride along, and he signed and said he dreaded those days the most. spending 2-3 days with a manager you can't stand. evidently his manager has "napolian syndrome" i feel for him...

just thought I would share my $0.02 on the topic. sounds like there are many better choices out there!!!

The managers at this company are clueless. My manager worked with me after 6 months of "being too busy" and didn't have any advice fo me. He told me to keep doing what I was doing. Actually he told me one thing and that was to do more paperwork to track my patients. Which has nothing to do with making more money which has been the goal since the beginning. He brought me out to lunch and then I dropped him off at his car. We worked from 10-1 including an hour lunch. How's this going to help me? He told me to get less Medicare business, increase my shoulder and supination/pronation sales and to keep my splints in rent longer and then I could get a raise. I did all of that and called him after 4 months of success and nothing. He said right now I need to sell more and I can get more. My numbers are good over the company average and better than most. I know I'm bringing in way more for the company than they are paying me. I have seen the salary charts but my manager refuses to increase my salary. It seems like the harder I work the more the company and my manager make and I'm left out. I need to start looking for another company that takes care of thier employees.

There are MANY other jobs that will take of their employees better. Do you really think $38 k base with the potential to earn anywhere from $1-15k over the year is worth it?

Think about your car. you drive ALL those miles on it for a tiny car allowance?? your trade in value will stink!

Don't make the mistake of even applying to this company. it's nothing but a black hole...Look, early on I got mixed up with shitty products like this. Here's the deal: 40k sucks. Bottom line. So you need to ask yourself this: am I doing this to get med sales experience for a year and move on? If you are, then fine. If you already have some experience, wait it out, because there are better opportunities out there.

As far as the "realistic" 60k salary: to answer your question, I would call BS on that one. Top rep earning 250k? Maybe BS, but I'll tell you, there's always one in the bunch who does OK because of variables in their territory, etc. I have never, ever talked to a company who did not use that line about a top rep making over 200k. The real question is "what did your average rep make last year?" Chances are it was around 55k. You can make that in pharma on base alone.

Think it through carefully.

Base is around 38 k with a very small market consisting of mostly podiatrists and a few ortho specialists.

To all the debbie downers & negative Nancy former sales reps of Dynasplint,

Just wanted to stand up for Dynasplint, and remind anyone reading these messages that those who talk trash are simply trying to make themselves look better.

So you were "let go" from Dynasplint? I'm assuming you are now bitter because you got fired. Those talking bad about Dynasplint are the people that did not maintain the job they were hired to do.

This IS a hard job, so those who didn't reach your numbers, quotas, get along with your team, had a bad attitude, whatever the reason... don't take it out on those who are making a difference and still with the company.

So my advice, don't hate the players...hate the game. This is a competitive business with high standards and expectations. Don't take it personal that for some reason you didn't make the cut, just step it up or else you will be bitterly blogging about every company that "lets you go"

Just grow up and find a new job.

It had to be one of you since you're the only ones that put a positive spin on the company. Put down your kool-aid and take your head out of your ass and look around. If you ever tried to leave Dynasplint you can't and that's why you're still there. Any by the way most of the posts if you read them seem like they are from current AND former employees. Once again step away from the kool-aid!

Dynasplint doesn't take care of their consultants that's why everyone leaves. You have people leave within 6 months, 1 year, 5 years and 10 years. The company just doesn't take care of thier people. I'm tring to get into surgical sales and have had some really great interviews lately. I'm just wating for the right opportunity. As far as bitter ex-employees goes they are usually bitter since they just have wasted thier time working for a useless company. But ask around and most if not all of the current employees having nothing good really to say about the company either. Now there might be 1 or 2 out of the hundreds but they're not qualified to do anything else. There are people with Dynasplint with associates degrees and random skills that other companies won't employ much less hire. All I can say is it does suck at Dynasplint and I'm here just for the paycheck and can't wait to get out. Hopefully it's soon because I can't take much more..

I used to work for Dynasplint for a while, and they have;

no respect for the sales force

unrealistic #'s

horrible management (who get richer on the backs of the sales force)

complete disconnect between sales force and corporate, they literally did not like sales people, despite sales force being the one's who grow the company

only company I've ever worked for in my life who do not supply the sales force with samples (we used to fit patients with products we've sampled on many Dr.'s or therapists), isn't this a sanitation issue, I think they could get in trouble for that in a big way)

no growth potential, limited earnings potential

very confusing territory structure, sometimes 4 reps are working the same area

sales force is way under paid and under appreciated

it's a shame, because it's not a bad product

The key word you ask yourself at Dynasplint is: WHAT? Dynasplint is such a second rate company in so many ways.

1)They pay you a car allowance and make you keep track of your mileage and submit it with your expenses but don't pay for mileage or gas. WHAT? Why go through all of the trouble and not get paid. If you don't submitt it they will not pay you the small car allowance of $450.
2) Also they make you front all of the money for lunches or marketing activities. WHAT? Don't worry you only have $125 per month and that includes: lunches, breakfast, dinners, offices supplies, etc. WHAT? Also it might take you 2-3 months to get reimbursed. WHAT?
3) Bonuses are paid every quarter and if you get a bonus Q1 (Jan, Feb, Mar) they pay you the end of June. WHAT?
4) If you leave the company after a quarter and earn a bonus they don't pay it. WHAT? Don't believe me look at the contract.
5)If your numbers slip they instantly post your position on Monster or Career Builder without even giving you a chance. WHAT?

I could go on all night with this so at this point I'll stop. If you don't mind working a whole lot for little to no reward maybe you'll love it there.

Even if you made 100k with Dynasplint the costs of making that bring you right back down. Car maintenence, gas, cell phone overages, not to mention the hours you have to put it to come close to that is ridiculous. You shouldn't have to put in 60+ hours a week to make 100k then minus your expenses you'll net income would be well under 75k. I think a previous poster broke it down: "I just left this shit ass company and thank god. I did well but the fact that I was under compensated, underappreciated and micromanaged did it for me. So as a sales rep I'm all about the numbers. So here it is: I worked 65 hours per week for 52 weeks which equals 3380 hours per year. I made 50k that year with bonuses. So I was technically making $14.79 per hour.(People without degrees and certifications make this hourly.) Now I got a $450 car allowance and after getting an additonal amount of $200 per month for fitting patients my average car allowance was $650. Or $7800 per year. Pretty good, huh? Well I drove 3000 miles per month on average. With no gas allowance or mileage reinbursement.(according to the IRS allowance I should have received $1500 monthly or $18,000 yearly) My car payment was $550 per month ($6600 per year) for a Honda Civic plus gas. Gas was $150 per week on average or $7800 per year. So add my yearly car payment plus gas and it equals $14,400 per year. So on my travel expenses/car allowance I was minus $6,600 per year. Not to mention oil changes, insurance, tires and other maintenence. Now tally it all up, after expenses I made $43,400 per year selling medical equipment. This is totally out of line with industry standards. I just took a job doing marketing for one of my old clinics and make 65K base, $600 a month car allowance, paid mileage and bonuses. Dynasplint isn't the place to work if you want to make money. Now if you want to work for a company and have your job cost you money be my guest but you were warned." Need I say more?

I used to work for Dyansplint and they instill fear into thier sales consultants. They put such a demand on you as a sales consultant that they tend to put you in dangerous situations. I would have to go to patients homes and other places to fit the splints so I would be able to hit my numbers at the end of the month or quarter. I understand sales and the importance of numbers but safety shouldn't be an issue. I'm a female and going into some patients homes I feared for my safety. I was in certain neighborhoods that you wouldn't ever want to be in, ever. When I spoke to my manager about it they said "too bad do your job or we'll repalce you". I was told to bring along some help i.e. my husband but he didn't want to endanger himself or me. I was mortified and left shortly after this. I couldn't believe that they expected me to endanger my safety to fit a splint. I know from experience that Dynasplint could care less about me.

Out of the 145 total sales consultants having 35 open is 25% of thier sales force is non-existent. It's been that way for years and years as long as I could remember.

After reading all of these posts and how Dynasplint treats thier employees and operates thier company I won't be accepting the offer the hiring manager extended me. I think people need to read these post thoroughly and not make a mistake to work for Dynasplint.
I just saw their ad on Career Builder, did some research on the company, and stumbled upon this blog tonight. I've known about Dynasplint, but I didn't know how they treated their employees, until today. I won't be applying now, having read all the complaints. Thanks! You can tell a lot about a company by the way it treats its employees. They probably think they have the market cornered in the dynamic splint industry. How sad.

Company treats reps like crap. 85% turnover, 20 reps terminated last month. 30-40k base, $450 car allowance, no gas or mileage, $125 monthly expense account including office supplies, quota way high based on salary, and territories too small. They think the more reps they add to a territory the more production they will get. Not true. Managers are clueless from the regional to divisional. It's a company trend though. Growth has been flat or negative last year or so. Patient don't want to pay for splints, doctors upset with amount of time it takes to get splints. Poor insurance coverage or if they are covered the patient copay is high and patients cannot afford. Spoke with another recruiter and he says some companies won't even look at previous Dynasplint employees. If you take the job keep looking....

Never has NEVER will...

From a customer service standpoint Dynasplint doesn't rank very well. If your going to sell products for a company make sure they check out with the BBB. If they have complaints the writing is on the wall the product will be a hard sell due to it's history. After looking at this I will be not taking the position with Dynasplint. Hope others see the writing on the wall also....
This information was taken right off of the Better Business Bureau website:

Customer Complaint History-Dynasplint score C+
When considering complaint information, please take into account the company's size and volume of transactions, and understand that the nature of complaints and a firm's responses to them are often more important than the number of complaints.
BBB processed a total of 13 complaints about this company in the last 36 months, our standard reporting period. Of the total of 13 complaints closed in 36 months, 7 were closed in the last year.
These complaints concerned :
6 regarding Billing or Collection Issues
2 - Failure to correct billing errors
2 - Improper collection practices
2 - None of the Above - Credit, Billing or Collection Complaint Issue

4 regarding Customer Service Issues
1 - Failure to provide promised assistance or support for products or services
3 - Failure to respond to phone calls or written requests for assistance or support

1 regarding Sales Practice Issues
1 - Sales presentation used dishonest sales practices

2 regarding Service Issues
2 - None of the Above - Service Complaint Issue

The stats speak for themselves. Hummm....also Dynasplint goes by the name Landmark Medical. I wonder why they do that? Trying to hide something? Or run away from something?

My grandmother had one of those Dynasplint and it never did work. After she was fit with the splint she never saw the rep again. She received a bill in the mail after the rep said it would be covered 100% by insurance. Now the company wants to collect $395 per month for a total of $2370 for something that never worked and sat in the box after the rep fit her. The company isn't helpful in clearing this up and has threatned to send us to collections. The rep, company and everyone involved lied to get us to accept it and was very quick to stick us with a bill. Very unethical...

Can anyone tell me what they know about the North Carolina district? ie how many reps throughout the state? where the reps are located? what the manager is like? quotas, etc. Also, are there different divisions based on disease state or reason for splinting (ie sports injuries versus stroke patients? I have read some negative things on here about the company..but I would like to hear some positives as well. Keep in mind the unemployment rate in NC is outrageous right now! (and my un benefits have expired) Serious replies only please:)

I am a former Southern Region sales rep. NC has five or six territories broken up by orhto and neuro. I only know of the ortho manager who is based in SC. He is a reasonable person but takes orders from the top. The Southern region manager (the top in this case) is un-cool to say the least. There are unfortunatley few positives to state regarding any facet of DSI. If you visit the DSI website and select "careers" you will see that there are roughly 3-4 new openings on any given day. The pressure is high and the insurance coverage (especially in NC) is extremely low. Blue Cross/Blue Shield is a major insurer in NC and does not cover Dynasplint. If you have a tenatious sales ability and are comfortable renting devices to patients for $395 / month then give it a shot. Personally, I would not recommend DSI unless you have other possibilities that may open up to you in the near future. Your future with DSI will be based solely on an increase in sales every month starting from the word go. This fact is obvious and should be assumed as a given with any sales position. However, with DSI you must keep in mind the immense amount of turn over and the effect that it has on the territory and the medical professionals you will be calling on. I hope my opinion helps, good luck.

If you wanted to take the job to build up your unemployment benefits get ready to be out of work in another 6 months. The manager in that area is new but a dumbass like the rest. The NC area is part of the southern division and I would recommend you stay out of that division. It has the most micromanagement and highest turnover rates 90%+ The company takes a territory that does 30 splits and splits it in 2 and thinks it should do 30 each. Then they split each of those 2 into 2 more and now have 4 reps in an area and they expect 120. Doesn't happen! They have no idea on how to split areas or regions and guess at it. Unemployment is bad all over but reach out to some recruiters and don't make the mistake of joining Dynasplint.

There are five pages of this thread full of reasons not to consider Dynasplint. There is no good division or worthwhile manager. Ortho, Neuro, Poditary . . . it's all the same product with all of the same headaches.

Not unlike many products in any given industry, Dynasplint also provides a service. The product aside, the service and interaction between sales consultant and everyone he or she interacts with is a very important component to individual and company success. This is where a well above average turn-over rate can be the undoing of a company. If the rep before you (in the territory you are considering) made any sort of impact either positive OR negative you will have a hill to climb. Keep in mind that you will be given a defined amount of time by your manger to climb this hill and repair any damaged relationships on your way. This could take months, unfortunately you will not be obliged this courtesy and will be expected to sell splints . . . relationships be damned. This is a difficult task to perform due to the fact that SUCCESSFUL outside sales demands solid relationships.

I personally enjoy reading this thread for its entertainment purposes. If I can help someone along the way avoid the mistake I made by signing on with Dynasplint then I have done my good deed for the day. If you however are seeking advice please take the time to read through the previous postings, they all ring true. Or simply call Dynasplint and ask for the numbers of local reps in your state (as if you are an interested patient) and talk to these reps personally. As long as you can convince them that you are not a corporate spy they will most likely spill the beans and help to close the chapter on your consideration of Dynasplint for a future employer. If you don't feel like taking the time then re-read my first three sentences, the pretty much sum things up.

Why do you assume that a poster is from corporate simply because a valid question is asked? That makes no sense. No, Im not from corporate. I am currently interviewing with Dynasplint and was looking for some legit information on which managers to look out for. I have a hard time believing that all of them are equivalent to satan and all of them are the worst managers in the world. And if someone on here truly believes that ALL the managers are like that, I would like to know what perspective those individuals are coming from? (ie what are your expectations of a workplace) Ive been in sales for years, and am considering a position here. I recognize that with EVERY company, there are ALWAYS negatives, and ALWAYS positives as well. I was just looking for an honest discussion here. Pros and Cons, and which ones to really be concerned about.

If you already have some experience, wait it out, because there are better opportunities out there.

I work for this company now and let me tell you I cannot get out fast enough. There is a huge disconnect between sales and corporate. Once I get my Q4 bonus in January I'm out of here. See if you earn a bonus but leave before they pay you they don't give it to you. Every other company I've worked for pays you what you earn. This is another reason why this is the cheapest company around. There have been 6 reps that have cycled through my territory and the damage is permanent. Take it from me folks the information on these posts are accurate and there's not anything positive I think I could say about the company.

Here's your honest answer.... The posts are true... In the beginning the job is decent, but after about 6 months you start finding all it's quirks. Of course in the interview process the people are going to be nice and paint this unrealistic picture of what the job actually entails. The managers in the south are all one and the same, incompetent assholes that never offer any advice or ways to help you build your business, they just keep pushing and nagging. Every sales consultant that works/worked for this company works extremely hard. You not only have to market, set-up patients, follow-up with patients and be at their beckoning call, you also have an excessive amount of paperwork to do because how else would your manager be able to follow your every move. Oh and believe me he will. If you love to be micromanaged by people who know less about the company than you do...then maybe this job is for you. If you like to work very hard for very little compensation...then maybe this job is for you. If you are a heartless bastard and don't care about helping people..then this job is definitely for you, you'll fit right in at Dynasplint. Otherwise, you should definitely look elsewhere. After you are fed up with the company and realize you need to get out, you will have a difficult time trying to find a new job. Many recruiters and companies know about Dynasplint and this is a blemish on your resume. Not only does this company make your life miserable, but once you are in, it is very difficult to get out. It is kind of like a black hole.

I worked for Dynasplint for 2 years and was worked to the bone. I was paid alright, but never was rewarded for a job well done. The company takes advantage of you from the beginning and it's like you're always trying to catch up. The job is all consuming your personal and family life suffer because it's a 24/7 type position. There's always something to be done to try to get a little bit ahead. Once you think you're on top of your business...bam some idiot at corporate that's supposedly responsible for negotiating contracts loses a major payor. Your business then suffers and you're unable to gain any ground and have to rebuild. But the catch is due to the fault of corporate contracting the table is turned and you are blamed for a decrease in business. It's a never ending battle. Maybe you sold the heck out of a particular splint and need 10 of them. Well all of the sudden manufacturing forgot to make enough of the splints you need and they are on backorder for 8 weeks. Once again you are blamed for this because your business isn't doing as well as it should. All of the corporate and management mistakes passed onto the sales force. So who really suffers? The sales force. I was recruited by one of my clinics to do marketing and they started me out at what it took Dynasplint 2+ years to pay me. Something is really wrong with that!

"It has been decided that Dynasplint will not cover additional bags, overweight bags or any baggage costs associated with flights. These additional costs will be up to the colleague to incur. We will update the policy and send out."

Are you kidding me? So if I have to go on a business trip for training the company isn't going to pay for it. Ridiculous!

I have been to lunch with my manager several times and it seems like every time he uses his Dynasplint corporate card it gets denied. From what he told me it happens all of the time from the company not having enough money in the bank to cover expenses. I laugh everytime it happens!! Pitiful!!

I don't know anything about Dynasplint and stumbled upon this post by accident. So Dynasplint is a real company? They must be run like GM and all of the other bailout companies.

I'm really glad that I found this posting board! I had an interview with Dynasplint and brought up several points from this posting board. They just floundered and didn't know what to say or how to respond. They probably wondered how I knew all this information about the company. They didn't have any responses or any justification so I decided to pass on the offer and I'm sure glad I did. A recruiter called me back with an opportunity that blows Dynasplint out of the water. That isn't too hard to do since they are pond scum and you can't get lower than that! Wish me luck!

For those on here with knowledge of Dynasplint, can you tell me about the foot/ankle division? The recruiter told me that insurance coverage isn't very good on these products. True? What else can anyone tell me about this division? I have reached out to some current reps but haven't been able to connect with them yet. Thanks for the help!

Working as an Ortho rep is challenging enough for Dynasplint. If your territory has the wrong insurance coverages for your patient population forget about ever succeeding in the Podiatry division. I was able to produce more orders than the ortho rep in my territory on a consistent basis. This person is in the Presidents club. The reality of the situation is at DSI, we were paid to fit patients. I was able to convert a significant amount of self-pays (average $276 monthly). However, when 60-75% of your territory has the wrong insurance coverage, long term success was damn near impossible no matter how strong the relationships were with my docs. Now I'm out of job in spite of producing great #'s for orders. Bottom line, ortho and neuro are divisions that people can succeed in with the right work ethic and talent. Podiatry is a huge roll of the dice no matter what your talent/work ethic is!

Dynasplint is full of people drinking the corporate Kool-Aid. Upon entering the company there is a huge smoke screen people don't even realize. Its all starts out good, happy and then all of the sudden it hit you with so much force it knocks you off your feet.......What did I do?....Why did I take this job?....Why am I being treated like this?.....They never told me this?....I though they said there was business in the territory?.......So I have to start from the beginning?........Wasn't there a rep in the territory before?......Dynasplint doesn't cover United Healthcare?......All of this paperwork?.......I though you said it was going to be better than this?......What do you mean I have to pay for my own expenses related to Dynasplint?......And most of all this starts to happen after month 1 and progressively gets worse and worse until you can't take it any longer and quit. They get you in with all of the promises in the world. Once your in all of the promises go away and the draining begins. They sell you into the company with promises of grandeur and them in one swift swoop they are gone......Beware would be consultant....BEWARE!!!

This was a letter I received from my manager:
"Your minimums are 54 or 18 per month. I hope you can continue the momentum and grow your business even more. Remember, significant improvement from one month to the next is imperative to your position with Dynasplint.
As we discussed, if you do not confirm at least 15 contracts, your position as a sales consultant with Dynasplint will be terminated. I keep telling you - I believe in you and your ability to grow your territory. Let me know if I can help."

Let me know if I can help? Well heck come work with me and give me some support. The day I received this letter my job was posted online. Do you think they think I'll make my goal? Apparently not! I have been here for a short time and getting this letter so soon is a huge shock. So I got a hold of the old reps card and gave him a call. Guess what? He got the same letter after 2 months. He also told me I was rep number 7 in the territory in the last 2 years. He told me the territory never did over 10 splints per month and it was so split up that there wasn't enough business to support a ortho rep. So now what? If the territory has never done more than 10 and they are saying I have to do at least 15 to keep my job I'm doomed. Much less doing 18 as a minimum. What did I get myself into? I need to see if I can get my old job back!!

Once Dynasplint gives you a letter about your performance or any other issue they are only telling you to look for another job and they don't want you any longer. Almost all of the reps there are set up to fail and the letter is standard operating procedure to get rid of the reps they don't want.

I guess I need to start looking for a new job forget about trying to make the failing territory better. It hasn't done well in 3 years!! I have only been here 3 months, so much for giving me a chance! I can tell now I didn't stand a chance here!

It's 3:20am and I just go done doing paperwork for my insane manager. He must be trying to get me to quit but still demands I work until I finish. He has threatened me with my job but at this point I feel like cutting my losses. He did the same thing to another person on our team and she quit that same week. No wonder why Dynasplint has such high turnover and angry employees.

Alright guys, can things really be as bad as you all make it out to be? I am unemployed and am contemplating a position in the Southern region, could Dynasplint really be worse than the expiration of my unemployment benefits? I would greatly appreciate an honest response from a current rep or at least not from a disgruntled ex. Thanks.

I do and can't wait to get out. Most of them are true, accurate picture of how the company treats thier employees. If I had to pick I would stay on unemployment if I were you.

File for an extension on your unemployment benefits. I am a former Dynasplint employee. The job is a joke...they are not taken seriously in the medical device space. You will not make good money here and you will have to deal with micro-managing sales managers who don't have a clue how to sell anything. A handful of the regional managers there have been promoted to management after only being in the sales field for 12 months with no prior sales experience than that. The blind leading the fucking blind.

I took this job as a filler between jobs and continued to look from day one of my hire there. Putting them on your resume', you better be prepared for your objection handling as you interview with other places...because as I mentioned they are not taken seriously at all. I wound up removing them from my resume' completely and interviewed marketing myself as having an employment gap and I had a much easier time landing a better gig.

There are tons of other avenues you can take in regards to unemployment (extensions, emergency funds, etc). Don't do it I would hate to see you ruin your carrer and screw up your resume.

As crazy as it seems these message boards are right on point. I currently work for Dynasplint and am looking for another opportunites feverishly. I can't get out of here quick enough. The company doesn't care about the sales consultants and will get rid of you at the drop of a hat. Management is clueless and have no idea how to help the sales consultants. Most managers failed as reps and knew someone higher up and became managers. They all micro manage you and ride you like the day is long. Take it from a current employee, look elsewhere when presented with a Dynasplint opportunity.

yes you read correctly Dynasplints turnover is more than 80%. This equates to 8 out of 10 people leave the company. Oh, and another interesting stat is that most or all leave within 6 months. Check the posting boards they aren't expanding they are trying to fill all of thier open positions. Currently there are 25 open sales positions advertised on career builder. Out of the 125 total sales consultants having 25 open is 20% of thier sales force is non-existent. It's been that way for years and years as long as I could remember from working there. They are driving people away in droves and lose quality people all of the time. Once people get started with the company if they are smart they realize that it's twisted culture and screwed up attitude toward the reps isn't how a good company is run. And if you think that Dynasplint is a stepping stone think again. Other repuatable companies want to see real experience from a real company. Other medical equipment companies don't respect Dyansplint and rightfully so it's not a good company. So rather than having to expalin why you worked for Dynasplint it's better just to not have it on your resume. Heck my new manager told me he would have rather had used car salesman, copier sales, rental car salesman than Dynasplint on my resume. I'm glad he gave me a chance but Dynasplint on my resume didn't help one bit it actually hurt. Read the posts about the company and if you're smart you won't make the mistake that 8 out of 10 people did!!

Let's bring 2010 in right and let everyone know that Dynasplint is the worst medical company to work for in the whole industry. If you doubt it read the posts...

Let's see what patients say:
Carol: "I didn't start using it until Jan.16th. Almost 2 whole months after my knee surgery. I am very unhappy with it. I even had to quit using the straightening splint as it pulled on my hip so bad I couldn't stand it. I feel like the flex slpint is just as bad, and I have not improved at all since I started using them. I am going to quit using the flex as they want me to use it at least 6 hours a day, and I can't sleep with it, and don't have that much time for it. I use it about 4 huors a day, and can hardly walk after I use it"
Jody:"I was advised 2 month out of total knee replacement to use the dynasplint. This was a total insurance scam. Impossible to sleep in, the pain from wearing it was crippling and it did not help my situation at all. I would never recommend using one of these.Dealing with the company regarding billing and insurance is an absolute nightmare.
I highly suggest you discuss the ramifications of using a dynasplint with your surgeon and not your therapist, you will not be sorry you did"
James:"the product is out of date and there are better options out there "

So if you are thinking about working for Dyansplint think again. The consumer is the biggest customer and if they aren't happy you won't be selling many of these devices!
