    Former Employee - RAM in Woodbury, MN

    I worked at Cubist Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great espirit de corps.
    Strong business acumen development.
    Creative problem-solving and innovation highly rewarded.
    Great financial reward for hard work and smart planning & execution.
    Excellent coaches in the regional business management team!

    Cons

    Lots of travel due to relatively larger territory sizes.
    A few bad eggs in mid-level management that can have a profound impact within the spheres of influence.
    Low tolerance for below-quota sales for any period longer than 90 days and even then an exit strategy is a good plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting the innovators and great coaches in the sales team.

    Pros

    Culture of accountability - if you're not performing to quota, ASK, and you'll get the help you need.
    Rewarded for performance - lots of perks for 100-120% of quota attainment
    Excellent compensation - may be able to get more with a few other companies, but I was very satisfied with a 6-figure base.
    Excellent team enviroment - lots of espirt de corps.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can get thrown-off if you let it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the healthy competitive environment and rewarding folks who get AND maintain the business.
