Fair, but consumed with their own dogma.

Account Manager (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

ProsMajor player in the specialty generic injectables and infusion therapy devices. Name alone can get you through doors. Many GPO contracts in effect.

ConsAverage compensation at best. Hospira is not an aggressive company and is reactionary to the marketplace when it comes to devices. Injectable contracts and GPO agreements not strongly enforced at the customer level to the extent their competitors do.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe aggressive and don't believe the hype that because you are Hospira (or the old Abbott HPD) that you are automatically guaranteed a place at the customer's "table". Take a look at how your competitors write and enforce their customer contracts. Hospira is too soft with customers for their own good. Stop letting customers sign up for multi-line discounts and then just let them go free, while keeping their leveraged prices, when they decide to jump to a competitor with a "me-too" product.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Very Backstabby
