Pros

Management does not want to see you fail. There is a supportive network of employees/friends who will encourage you to do your best and strive for success.

Cons

Very strict start times and lunch hours with very little flexability unless you've worked at the company for 15+ years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Separate cubes so that managers do not always sit behind subordinates. There's a micro-managed tension in the entire building at Ross Park. The less managed someone is, the more they strive to succeed on their own. When an employee is under the microscope, they WILL fail due to increased tensions and stress.

    Pros

    Solid Fortune 500 company with tons of resources, quality products, marketing, and training to back you up. You will become a better Sales Rep and Businessperson. Numerous condition specific products and healthcare call points that prepare you for better sales opportunities in the future.

    Cons

    Culture changed very quickly in the past 5 years. What once was stated from management as "you manage your territory", it is now micro managed for you by them. Big Pharma mind-set is now the way of life. Get on the "Blue Train" or be gone. Older Reps with a record of success are now targeted for dismissal if not seen as "dynamic" or willing to roll-over and learn corporate's new tricks. Pay is good but below that of Abbott Primary Care samplers and caterers. Tons of busy work to be done "before/after-selling-time" and ride-withs that in reality take away from face time with customers. Not fun anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoy your success and get off the Reps' backs, particularly the proven Reps who established their territories and have made you Number 1 in the market.
