Depends who and what department you work for.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Andover, MA13 June 2018
Overall it's a good company. Lots of favoritism. If you're in with the in crowd you will go far but even if you're a great worker, responsible, work well with others but you're no ones favorite you will never get anywhere.

Benefits are awesome. The company as a whole tries to make it fun for everyone but it's no fun when you're the odd man out.

Inexperienced young managers running a start up company with a very poor sales training program with unrealistic sales quota sets you up for failure.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Arizona8 May 2018
Pros:
Good product at a good price
Great teammates on the sales team

Cons:
Young, inexperienced and condescending management from VP level on down.

Unrealistic sales quota - no paid commission unless you hit quota EVERY month. Worst comp plan I’ve ever seen in sales.

Big brother monitoring day and night

Tons on sales reports every night & weekend

Wonderful company to be part of
Consultant (Former Employee) –  North Andover, MA2 January 2018
Straumann USA is a dental implant company. I was allowed the privilege to learn from educated colleagues, have freedom to develop programs, educate new employees, and travel to Switzerland to experience and tour the manufacturing facility. I spent ten wonderful years with Straumann. I began my career there as a customer service representative and ended it as the Technical Support Manager to our doctors and lab technicians. I had a team of ten dedicated men and women who continued to educate our customers with ease and patience.
Pros
Teamwork
Cons
relocation of the company

Excellent Product

The product is excellent, the company invests in research and development all the time, customers are most of the time the most qualified dentists in the country, so it makes the work seems easier.
Pros
Benefits like car all the time
Cons
Relationship with the board is hard

Zakelijk omgeving met weinig waardering van het management
Teamleader Logistics Benelux (Current Employee) –  IJsselstein1 December 2017
Het leukste van de baan was het samenwerken met de collega's van hetzelfde niveau. Er was een ongedwongen en humorvolle omgeving van de gelijken. Vanuit het management was er geen waardering en werd er vooral benadrukt wat er fout ging. Communicatie vanuit het hoofdkantoor bleef hangen bij de managers waardoor er veel wrijving en frustratie op de werkvloer was.

Product development engineer view
Product development engineer (Former Employee) –  Basel, BS13 July 2017
Extremely political, no interest in doing the right thing, rather get something to the market no matter at what cost (especially if it is an IDS year!).
Management plays along with "rising stars" employees, even if they reach goals by stepping on others. Not a team working place, rather "first me, then I'll consider helping you".
Dental should not be a medical device business. The devices are simple and with no real clinical risk. The work of an engineer is mainly paper work.
Research & development have the same head which often creates compliance issues (regulatory is often seen as secondary and exists just because regulations force it, not to make the devices safer).

Do yourself a favor and stay away!
Full Time Employee (Current Employee) –  Andover, MA1 June 2017
Do yourself a favor and stay away! Management and HR are clueless! They have no idea of the workload they put on their employees nor do they care. This place will set you up to fail. The worst training I have ever experienced because there pretty much is none!

Awful place to work!
Event Planner (Former Employee) –  Andover, MA4 March 2017
I was told during my first week on the job that they (meaning management) drop you in the water and see if you can sink or swim.

There are some great people that work here..but then there are the management team who pretends to care and take what you say seriously and then totally don't listen to any recommendations to improve situations. There are also many people that just don't do their job but some how get away with it.

I agree that this is a completely toxic environment. The work load is ridiculous and if you are a hard worker they pile on even more. They provide little to no training on systems but expect you to know everything.

They pretend they are going on this cultural journey but if the leaders of the organization can't follow this journey then whey would their employees.

This is the worst job I have ever had! I loved what I did for this company but hate the way management doesn't appreciate good work and allows people to work in silos instead of working together.
Pros
Some of the people
Cons
Work load, management, communication between different departments

Definition of a toxic environment
Internal Employee (Current Employee) –  Andover, MA25 February 2017
If you are a hard worker, you will drown in this environment. You'll be surrounded by those who draw lines and phrases on a white board and little else and get rewarded. You will have more work piled on you while others sit by and twiddle thumbs and search YouTube for videos. Straumann takes the hard workers, and it's like running on a treadmill at max incline - they will keep turning up the incline until you drop, then laugh at you on the way out and find someone new to run to the ground.

The walls between different departments here trying to collaborate are so high Donald Trump would be envious. There's more flip-flopping and changing of decisions here than you'll find in politics. Collaboration and culture are two "in" phrases that get tossed around but don't actually mean anything here.

The environment is the definition of toxic - people who leave comment how their quality of life improves upon leaving, people who work in manufacturing don't even want to walk over to the corporate side of the building because you can feel the toxicitity and drama in the air.

Upper management lives the glass row and rarely ventures out to mingle with the common folk. They are so far removed out of the day to day operations of the company. The company has grown exponentially in sales and sales force but without the same growth in the back office to support the hard workers. You cannot speak your mind here. The company is not what it used to be a few years ago and might be headed up in terms of sales but is a downward spiral internally.
Pros
Health care
Cons
Culture, workload, work-life balance

Pros

CSR working holidays or working on days for Company Events

Run Away From This Company Quickly!!!
territory manager (Current Employee) –  Field Sales20 January 2016
This company has created a very toxic environment over the years; they don't value their employees and there is zero loyalty, unless you're willing to play 'office politics'. They'll mislead you on opportunities for advancement and there's no clear indication on what each departments initiative is. It's ironic that the logo is green because they should switch the company name to "Straumann Snakes" because they're all snakes in the grass. Beware!!!
Pros
Very little
Cons
Too many to mention….

Gezellige werk sfeer
Account Manager & Customer Service (Former Employee) –  IJsselstein12 October 2015
Een mooi bedrijf maar waar wel het één en ander misschien iets anders zou moeten lopen.
Ik heb er een hoop geleerd qua de dentale sector.
De directie was niet echt merkbaar aanwezig
Maar de directe collega's waren meer dan fijn om mee samen te werken.
Pros
goede secundaire voorwaarden
Cons
