District Sales Manager

District Sales Manager (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsSmall company environment allows you to gain experience and exposure to many different areas of the pharmaceutical industry. If you work hard and build advocates you can be a part of many different committees i.e. sales compensation, sales training and development etc. and build your skill sets

ConsWhen times are good you can be lulled into thinking that you are a highly valued team member. Like most pharmaceutical companies there are challenges i.e. products going generic, lost court cases etc. Hard work, self sacrifice, and top performance will not save you if a patent is lost etc. There is just not enough revenue streams to endure a product miss.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore attention needs to be given to the field. Home office rules all here and the people on the front lines will usually take the brunt of any cutbacks, failed marketing plans etc. Additionally, the leader of HR and Sales Training has way to much influence over sales operations and the organization. Additionally there is a surprisingly high amount of gossip originating from the top. Because of this the home office does not have the trust of the front line employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
