    I have been working at Depomed as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good products but few indications that primary care can write for.

    Cons

    Fear based employment is not the way to succeed. they want you to sell off label to make the numbers and even commit Medicare fraud with their copay card.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The revolving door needs to stop! Support your employees instead of putting their careers in jeopordy. PIP on employees but management needs to be on a performance improvement plan!

    I have been working at Depomed part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good product offering with Gralise but Zipsor is just another me too.

    Cons

    Poor Managent and no clear sales direction. If ram my own business with the same lack of direction I would be bankrupt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A culture of fear to drive performance will never get the best performance from your employees.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Depomed

    Pros

    -people at the bench level are pleasant to work with.
    -people at the lower level are technical and knowledgable

    Cons

    -collusion between people in upper management designed to undermine others efforts;

    -lack of accountability, responsibility by upper management "Lead by Consensus" philosophy;

    -decision making is done by consensus. If you disagree with the consensus (2-3 people in upper management) you are labeled a "problem";

    -management approach is to take the shortest, highest risk route rather than the "right" approach. Often make decisions predicated on time lines rather than "correct/industry standard"" or "ethical" approach;

    --promotions through Nepotism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a culture of diversity in opinion & experience rather than going with the corporate "Bobble Heads"
