    Pros

    You are given great products to sell so it is easy to get excited about their benefits to patients. You have great support and incentives to improve your skills, grow in confidence and achieve success. Success is rewarded well with excellent benefits. Barriers to success are identified and worked on as a team so you continue to feel confident.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be a challenge. While the company does not demand a Sales Specialist work hours of overtime, many providers who see sales specialists, do so before and after office hours; on weekends; as well as on their lunch. Bonus pay is dependent on the ability to achieve face to face meetings with your customers several times a month as well as growth in market share.

    Pros

    One of the best benefit packages in Pharma. Dental, Vision, Medical. Vested in 3 years. Flexible work schedule is attractive.

    Cons

    .Promotions are slow. Qualified employees are often overlook. Too much restructuring and reorganization, Seems to occur every 2 years this clearly impacts company morale.

    Advice to Management

    Employee personal development has been lacking for some time. Investment in employee growth within the business comes slow if at all. It's been promised, but yet to see in place.

    Pros

    Work with highly intellegent scientists.

    Cons

    Long term term contractors who are highly experienced are not treated as equals. Those who are rewarded are based on favoritism instead of hardwork and dedication. Highly stressful at times, high expections with little possitive reinforcment. Promotions are rare and contractors get taken advantage off.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who deserve it and not someone who feeds your ego.

    Pros

    the people at the astrazeneca/ amylin site was great and very easy to work with

    Cons

    Being in a transitional company, from Amylin to BMS to Astrazeneca, room for personal development was not there as the group was in an ongoing company transition.
