Pros

Enjoyed my customers, liked the less stress sales model (only half as focused on numbers).

Cons

Too much extra work without given the time to complete it. For example, tons of extra learning modules and training/prep time required for meetings, but wasn't given any time to complete it. You end up working on weekends and nights very often.

Advice to Management

Managers all seem to be focused on one thing; how good do they look in front of their Regional Manager. It all seems like a big game. Not very sincere treatment of the reps.

    Pros

    Very smart coworkers. Opportunities to grow a career

    Cons

    Some managers only "manage up" and dont care about their direct reports Could use more senior employees with experience other than at Lilly.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the values of those you promote. A company is only as good as its managers.
