AstraZeneca is a solid company to work for.

Pharmaceutical Sales Specialist (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsStrong products and product recognition from our customers. AstraZeneca provides so many tools to help you plan and sell. I appreciate their high standard for ethics and emphasis, "Do the Right Thing".

ConsOveremphasis on personal development which is a distraction to business planning and selling in the field. There is no uniform way how to sell pharmaceuticals or selling in general. Different managers I worked for had his/her own sales theory which made it confusing for the whole team and customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementField Reps are paid to create and work a business plan in support of marketing's brand strategy. Let us do what we do best, sell in the field. Don't distract our business planning and field time with the individual development plan and confusing scorecard template.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
