    I got laid off.

    Specialty Sales Representative (Current Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsGood benefits, good pay,

    Consbonus structure was not fair

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

     

    Warner Chilcott was a company focused on performance driven results.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe compensation scale for performance at WC was excellent.

    ConsVery little clinical focus or training. Very little focus on managed care coverage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe key to great success in pharma so often is guided not only by the quality of the product and the relationships developed by the representative, but also, in the current environment, by the ability of the physician to somewhat easily write the product and by the willingness of the patient to fill it.

    Better increase sales fast or your out the door

    Specialty Sales Representative (Current Employee) Lubbock, TX

    ProsIf you increase market share you will get rewarded very nicely with their bonus structure they have in place. Salary is okay compared other companies. Great health benefits, company car, and free gas.

    ConsDepending on your manager if you don't perform quick you will most likely be gone within the first nine months if not sooner. Know for their high turnover because they get rid of people so quickly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to communicate with other management. Different parts of the company were always against each other. If you would all come together you would probably accomplish a lot more.

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

    Awful company, unprofessional, terrible leadership and management

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, willing to give a chance to those wanting to break into industry, nearly unlimited expense budget.

    ConsDistrict Managers are often less than 30 years old with little to no work or life experience. Unprofessional, unskilled at managing and bringing out the best in others - they manage with an iron club and have an arrogant condescending demeanor. They would most likely fail in any other management role at any other company or industry since their lack of professionalism is astounding. They usually have to skill set in management, they were at one time a sales rep with a few months of great performance and got promoted to manager, though they possess no management qualities.They endorse and encourage unethical sales practices. Leadership beyond DMs is also disappointing. Hands off, lack of communication, short-sighted. Awful training. Quality of overall sales force : abrasive, overly aggressive, loud, trashy, inarticulate, and education from less than impressive Universities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice...this place has been a bomb for quite a while.

    Stress filled working environment without much structure

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat compensation for consistent high performers. Quick promotions

    ConsNo job security ever and inexperienced management

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore management training

    Less than ideal

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWC offers big bonus potential of up to $75k per year. This is one of highest potentials I'm aware of.

    ConsThe management team (for most part) are not trained to be managers. More like babysitters. It's unfortunate. Most managers have zero skills on training and retaining people.

    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.

    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
