Pros

Hospira is a growing company. There are a lot of former Abbott employees so if you are looking for pharmaceutical and medical device industry experience this is a good place to work. Hospira offers the standard benefits package and has a starbucks in its lobby! Chris Begley is an inspiring leader.

Cons

I can still feel the old Abbott Laboratories culture.

    I have been working at Hospira

    Pros

    The products represented at Hospira allow the medical sales person to operate at a higher more consultative level than the average representative. The uniqueness of Hospira's products elevates the representative to more than just a detail rep, you can actually become a consultant if you know how to position yourself. Most of the managers for the sales teams are fair and encouraging.

    Cons

    Some of the things in Hospiras portfolio do not receive as much attention as others. It is questionable whether some of Hospira's products and sales force will be around much longer. The regulatory department at Hospira is like the gaustapo and rules and regulations are taken to the 10th degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time with the field salespeople to get a pulse on what is really going on inside hospitals. See what the challenges are for healthcare providers and for the sale representative.
    Give more reasonable and attainable sales quotas.

    Chris Begley has a wonderful vision - needs to be filtered down to the day to day operations
