  1. Very money focused, poor staff satisfaction and little career progression.

    I worked at Warner Chilcott Limited

    Pros

    Nice office in the UK next to Brooklands race track.
    Small company so you get to join the dots more easily if you want to (the UK company is about 50 people all in 1 open office area)

    Cons

    Company was extremely money conscious (seemed a very cold company - interest in staff satisfaction seemed non-existent) and lots of people were contractors. There wasn't a very good atmosphere and people seemed down trodden. Staff turnover was high. I didn't look forward to work, feedback always seemed to be negative (as if management were deliberately trying to put staff down). Traffic to the UK office is extremely bad, I wouldn't accept a job unless flexitime was offered. Some aspects of the company seemed unpleasant - there were some concerns about drugs being priced low to increase market share and then prices jacked up once patients were dependent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give attention to staff satisfaction - have regular staff satisfaction surveys.
    Conduct 360 reviews of managers - there was a lot of unreasonable pressure put on subordinates and senior managers seemed to not care.
    Address any ethics concerns - have anonymous surveys to find out any concerns people have.

  5. Warner Chilcott was a company focused on performance driven results.

    I worked at Warner Chilcott Limited

    Pros

    The compensation scale for performance at WC was excellent.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 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.

  6. Better increase sales fast or your out the door

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    Depending 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 ManagementAdvice

    Learn 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    District 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 ManagementAdvice

    No advice...this place has been a bomb for quite a while.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
