    Pros

    If you are connected to the right person, promotions come fast and easy. Some decent benefits.

    Cons

    Adversarial environment most of the time. Leaders are task managers and parrot talking points. Good people have left. Bonus structure is rigged.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't be intimidated to promote people that are smart and innovative thinkers. They will make your company better. Try to focus sincerely on those that support your bottom line.

    Pros

    Structure, support, great products. Excellent reputation among customers.

    Cons

    Pharma industry has changed a lot and unfortunately all pharmaceutical companies are victims. Like other companies, corporate meetings are a dog and pony show. Nobody can really speak their minds or give their 100% honest opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest

    training is completely unrealistic to real world situations with doctors

    have DM's figure out a way to help new employees sell in a short amount of time versus not showing sight sellers
