Pros

Name recognition of the company. Has numerous products in various disease state, gives you many areas to transfer for promotions. State of the art computer technology.

Cons

Large company with many reps in same territory. May find yourself tripping over each other in physician's offices. This could cause "overkill".

Advice to Management

As with any large pharma company, decisions or direction of sales does not seem to match the needs of the reps that our out in the field.

    Pros

    Location across the bridge from Manhattan. The pay is very good however. The company was recently purchased by Merck. It maybe a risky time.

    Cons

    Very expensive housing, I found my 2-br apartment for $2000/month. The company was recently purchased by Merck. It maybe a risky time.

    Advice to Management

    this is not my area of expertise. I am not sure. The company was recently purchased by Merck. It maybe a risky time.


  2. OK company to work for, if you like pharma.

    Good benefits, such as generous 401(k), health and dental, and tuition reimbursement.

    Seem to get into a lot of trouble with the government. New management was good, but not sure now that they have been taken over by Merck.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck dealing with Merck!
