I have been working at Zogenix full-time for more than a year

Pros

Zogenix offers extreme autonomy when it comes to sales and running your territory. Management stands behind each employee always asking that employee what they need to become successful. Zogenix has a great company culture and they reward hard work and great performance.

Cons

Currently, the company has only one product to sell. The territories tend to run large due to the niche market they have carved out in Neurology. Zogenix will live or die by the sales of Sumavel this year so one has to have an appetite for big risk/reward in order to be successful here.

    Pros

    Really nice people who genuinely care about each other. These are very talented folks.

    Cons

    There is always a lack of money, belt tightening, cost cutting, do more with less going on. It's never ending. It's a small company, so the HR support is not what it should be. The IT department is not what it should be. The overall access to resources to do your job is...not what it should be. However, the lack of money dictates all of my listed cons. Is it a 'con' to not have enough money? It can be when it affects your ability to get the right tools/people for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can only do what you can with the money you have. Considering how many hard times this company has managed to survive, I give management a lot of credit for being able to stay afloat.

    Pros

    Small company with the ability to get things done without all the layers of management

    Cons

    Management not prepared for obstacles during launch. They expect SAMs to get unrealistic results and turn a blind eye to violations of Pharma code. Management says one thing but expects you to do whatever it takes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach! It was suppose to be a "pharma for adults" type company; you are the CEO, etc. If you want sales done appropriately, then you should have been prepared to give the appropriate time and support for the launch of your new product. You started make jobs cuts before the end of the first quarter of launch. It is understandable that you cannot anticipate every possible scenario, but it would have been better to respond immediately when controversy started surfacing instead of taking a wait and see approach.
