    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.
