    I should have listened to reviews before taking the job....

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Rockaway, NJ

    ProsI had a great drug to sell and hit bonus every trimester. Great opportunity to make money, great benefits and vacation etc. Management is okay....

    ConsI read on several boards before I took the job that they have the highest employee turnover in the industry but thought its just disgruntled employees, it couldn't possible be as bad as they say. I placed in the top 20% and hit bonus every trimester and still got layed off with one day notice right before Christmas along with a couple hundred other people. They require two dinners a week, no exceptions which was a little exhausting. When you work your butt off for a company you expect more respect than a one day notice (the day before payday, which means you don't get paid the next day because that will come a month later in your severence package...Merry Christmas!)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    great way to get foot in the door to pharma.

    Specialty Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsIt gives you a chance to work in pharma with little to no experiene needed. There is a great oppertunity to make great money, if you willing to put in some long hours.

    ConsUn-realistic expectations, uncomfortable situations with doctors at dinner programs, micro managed, very unprofessional, stack ranked, lack of leadership, direction changes every trimester, I have yet to have 6 months in a row where I have been reporting into the same manager.... YOU have to QUALIFY to get the pay out you earn and its a moving target.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on developing and maintaining talent, would be nice to have a consistent message to promote in offices. As a sales rep, you talk to others in the division and no one will have the same idea as to whats going on, communication could use some work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pharma Sales

    Pharmaceutical Sales Person (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsHigher than industry average bonuses.
    Value good salespeople.
    Little to no bureaucracy.

    ConsNo work life balance encouraged.
    High turnover.
    No emphasis on collaboration makes the job lonely.
    Management is young and inexperienced.
    Salaries are low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more forgiving when salespeople have a bad quota.
    Hire more seasoned managers with industry experience.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Churn and Burn Company

    Specialty Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat way to get your foot in the door. Bonus payouts are high.

    ConsCompany is only concerned with growth. If you are not consistently growing the business, they fire you. I started in Oct. 2011, by Dec. 2012 only 1 person from my 12 person training class is left. They are happy to replace you. DMs often suggest questionable ethical/legal practices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more pride in your employees. Don't get rid of someone just because they had one bad trimester. Appreciate the relationships your reps have built. Invest in training those who are struggling. Don't always blame the rep first...could it be the DM? Could it be a territory specific issue? Do you really think a $125 per person dinner is going to earn you the business? Don't punish reps for not meeting the ridiculous amount of "medical education" events. Perhaps those providers have families and would rather spend their time with them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not Trusted

    Pharmaceutical Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsGood way to break into pharmaceutical sales either right out of college or if you only have a few years of outside business sales.
    Good bonus structure, based on forced ranking system but has a high potential.

    ConsVery shady company. They really break not only pharma code but also ignore FDA policy. They bribe doctors and reps get in trouble if they don't.

    They don't treat employees with any respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wish Senior Management would retire

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmall enough to know almost everyone
    Nice office building
    Most of the people working here are very dedicated to the company and proud to work there.

    ConsConstant changing of priorities
    Too many decisions at the lower level go through senior management; people are not encouraged to think for themselves. No cohesiveness or fun as almost everyone is afraid they may be terminated at any time,

    Advice to Senior ManagementBack off and give your people some responsibility

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Brief, after being trained and hired I was laid off 2 months later due to territory re-alignment.

    Osteoporosis Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsSalary and bonuses are great.
    Great budget to take out physicians, RNs, PAs, NPs

    ConsRequire at educational events at least twice a week.
    Little management assistance.
    After training people for over a week, they laid off over 100 people. Little time to prove ourselves in two months.
    Training wasn't representative of real world experience, only taught to get around problems, not solve them in the work place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to pay train someone, give them at least six months to prove themselves.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
