Once great company that lost their way

Regional Business Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Sepracor full-time for more than 10 years

ProsHigh pay - pay for performance culture

ConsPoor pipeline - lack of accountability of senior leadership

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should not tell managers to "do whatever they need to to get right" about laying off their people. Think about the words that come out of your mouth - people matter. We used to be compassionate even in tough times - now you close an entire division and layoff top performers who are highly respected and who have been loyal - then in the next layoff you make this ridiculous statement about getting right. You are no longer respected and need to leave so that real leaders can rescue the financial, R&D and performance mess you have created.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Respectful environment. Good growth until the downsize of the respiratory division.

Pharmaceutical Sales (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sepracor


Pros: Corporate location and positions are great. Cons: May be downsizing again due to loss of Xopenex. Advice to Senior Management: Downsizing should be conducted on merit not sales team. More
