I have been working at Daiichi Sankyo full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits and pay, easy bonus structure - simply beat previous quarter sales bonus paid only on growth, no quota stress no goal stress, company car without limit to personal use and free gas, generous phone allowance, free mifi, laptop, ipad, good expense account, corp. amex, office supplies provided, car wash allowance is generous, storage unit paid, terrific resources to order on your own

day to day depends on your manager, definitely a plus to have good teammates who work hard and collaborate

great incentives and contests and the Hawaii trip every year for the top 10% is fantastic

Cons

No product pipeline for primary care, NOTHING

United States CEO has a financial background and represents himself horribly, I don't trust him

Physician offices and hospitals systems are more and more closed off to reps, insurance companies dictate everything the physician can do so they don't care to talk to us very often, need larger territories and better managed care

Crappy teammates can be draining, a micro manager is annoying, this company just had to go ahead and try all the things big pharma tried and dumped, bonus structure always changes but paid for growth stays same, product weighting changes mid stream and back again, had lay offs in 2010 and again now 2-11-2013

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The IC plan with the buckets is ridiculous, not fair, stop changing what isn't broken
Communicate corporate plans and objectives to the field, we are withering and dying on the vine out here with old products and no hope for new ones. Layoff Feb 2013 will there be another in 6 or 9 months??
POAs have gotten really cheap
What happened to edoxoban no one talks about it ever.

    I have been working at Daiichi Sankyo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good reputation in the industry and adequate training for the position. Benefits are comparable package to other pharma companies, and include profit and thrift sharing if company hits annual revenue goals.

    Cons

    Future pipeline is lacking for products in 2013 - a new product is expected to be approved in 2014, but nothing is definite until it launches. Some instability right now due to generic competition and decreasing revenue on a national level.
