Pros

Good company to work for

Cons

Some district sales managers are better at selling than at managing and should maybe go back to being a sales rep

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to develop a system/method to evaluate their district sales managers...just because they have a proven sales track record as a sales rep doesn't mean that they can manage. Sales and management are clearly two separate things.

    Pros

    Laid back environment, competitive pay, wonderful geographical location

    Cons

    Company has financial results dependent on just a few products protected by patents, which will eventually expire. New blockbuster drugs are not that easy to come up with anymore. As a result of the current patent protection, company struggles with a very relaxed approach to business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a professional company as if it had cut throat competition in the market place.
