    I worked at The Medicines Company full-time (More than 8 years)


    I worked at MDCO from 2007 - 2015 and enjoyed the experience. I worked in technical development, manufacturing and supply chain. What I enjoyed most was the faith by the company in me to do what I was hired for as well as offering me opportunities to work outside of the direct areas of my job. Chaos is a good thing in this company, as it is fast paced and innovation that drives this. The innovation is the heartbeat of this company. The only reason I left this company was that I traveled 60 miles each way on a daily basis and after 8 years, it became difficult.


    Because MDCO is a small company, it manages its budgets very tight. In a fast passed innovative environment, sometimes the budget approval does not move as fast as the projects.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more closely to the people in the trenches doing the heavy lifting. This is a comment i make knowing that ALL companies could do this better. My experience is that I had access to the president/CFO and was heard.

    CSM Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Medicines Company (Cleveland, OH) in May 2015.


    Interview was tough but was a very relaxed feeling. It developed more into a conversation than just being drilled with questions. My initial interview was with the hiring manager and another CSM in the territory. The interview lasted about an hour and a half with an opportunity for me to ask question after. This was the first step of the interview and the next step would be to fly to their home office for a 5 person panel interview in which they stressed would be very challenging.
