Amazing opportunity

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

ProsGreat Benefits, Great Compensation, if you work hard you will succeed. Management is amazing, as well as counterparts. Great Car Program, Cell phone and internet reimbursed.

ConsMerged with Merck, never ending lay offs, micro management. Access to rebates and vouchers in a city where they were highly needed were not available.

Advice to Senior ManagementUrge your employees to use creative outlets to get to the decision maker. The doctors see 20 reps selling the same thing everyday. Sticking to the corporate way will never get you in the door.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
