  1.  

    AZ seems to be drifting and management doesn't understand how to sale pharmaceuticals and depend on experience.

    Pros

    Finally adequate IT support for the field. Fringe benefits such as health care insurance are superior, but the employees are having to make greater contributions for their coverage.

    Cons

    AZ has made serious missteps in launching and pulling-thru their products. Middle and upper management seem to turn a deaf ear towards representatives and DMs that have good and sound advice to help the company and sell specific products. The influence network is still alive and well at AZ and that is unfortunate for employees that really care about the company and the patients that could benefit from its products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with the influence networks at AZ, they are not looking out for the interest of the company, but their own careers. Listen to the annual survey from employees and don't just pay it lip service so that you can check off that paragraph in your annual review.

    Pros

    Ethical company with great products that made a difference in peoples lives.

    Cons

    Became process driven instead of sales driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your sales staff to do their jobs instead of tracking the things that do not matter.
