    Pros

    Good Reputation in the industry.

    Cons

    Poor pipeline. Poor ability to launch a drug. Micro-management escalated to drive out tenured reps to be replaced with an unexperienced lower paying rep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop micromanaging employees to the point of scripting the calls and focusing only on the metrics. forcing tenured reps out isn't the solution.

    The high level mangement team is really good, but the junior managers are so so...
