Former Employee - Territory Representative

I worked at Forest Labs full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Company car, one great drug(Linzess), good area business directors

Cons

Middle management micro manages sales reps. Reps are happy if they have a good manager and miserable if they don't. A lot of them are creepy just like many of the regional directors. In many regions Forest is a modern day, "Good old boys club." Large pod structure is a disaster. Doctors hate seeing several reps from the same company especially because they are not bringing the same value as they once did in the Lexapro days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of 1/3 of the DM's and the pod structure.
