Leading the Industry?

Senior Executive Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat big pharma experience at the local level due to tenured colleagues and managers. Excellent salary and benefits. Superb initial and ongoing training.

ConsNumerous recent changes in policies have seriously impaired sales reps ability to serve customers. Not incentivized based on sales but a convoluted system of test taking and manager reviews. Rumor mill is rampant and managers lead from behind rather than providing a clear vision based on reality. Big disconnect between corporate management and sales reps and not all local field managers do a very good job of supporting their teams.

Advice to Senior ManagementPharma is certainly going through some tough times, however, you have a lot of great people who are dedicated to doing the best they can for their customers and ultimately patients. Demonstrate true leadership and morale will rise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A corporation that has great ideas, but can have trouble putting them into practice if they are outside of pharma.
