    Pros

    Benefits
    Profit Sharing
    Small family feel
    In depth knowledge of niche market
    Good managed care training
    Very reasonable working hours

    Cons

    Senior management vision resulted in poor product launch resulting in various sales force reductions.
    Aging product turned smaller and smaller bonuses.
    Weak pipeline.
    Medicare 'bundling'
    Job description and responsibilities constantly change and increase.
    Specialty injectable salespeople not utilized to their best qualities.
    Specialty injectable sales force eventually reduced to office based capsule sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SPIFFS and career advancement was not potent enough to warrant motivation.
    Frequent sales direction changes and ineffective product launch weakened confidence.
    Injectable business was the steak and capsule sales was the sizzle.
    Bonuses dried up while responsibilities increased.

    Pros

    great benefits...great medical and dental...cash profit sharing is awesome right before Christmas

    Cons

    lots of politics not rewarding employees equally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't make promises you know you can't keep. Reward your best sales reps or you will lose them.
