Pros

I think the salaries, in general, are very competitive. Good bonus structure as well. There is a very good work-life balance and the benefits are good too.

Cons

The IT organization is one of the weakest groups in the company. There have been 8 CIOs in the past 6 years. The latest IT reorg has been poorly handled.

    Pros

    Co-workers were excellent; time off and company holidays were a plus. Depending on the manager, management was good. Leader in ADHD and the doctors knew it.

    Cons

    Lack of formulary coverage, can make or break you as a representative. Unrealistic goals and expectations. And I had a micromanaging Regional Director...too much drinking of the Kool-Aid.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and be realistic. People are laughing at you behind your back.

    Pros

    The culture and past contributors have been fantastic

    Cons

    Uncertainty due to reorg and new corporate culture

    Advice to Management

    The next time you reorg learn the laws in specific countries that impact how you proceed in the US.
