    Was a great place

    I worked at MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Casual dress, managers trusted employees, if you got your work done - go home & enjoy the day. Great people, nice offices.

    Cons

    Went bankrupt & everyone lost their job. Partly mgmt fault, part economy. I was sorry to see it go but we all knew the risk from the start

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    diversify

    Pros

    Capability to mkae a lot of money, but you will need previously developed relationships to do so. Nice benefits to the job.

    Cons

    Very poor communication lines and very top end heavy on bonuses-which is fine, if you are on the top! Need to have relationships in place to do well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stronger commissions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a spine and honor your word. If you say you will do something do it. Do not hide behind conference calls on mute to get you out of a jam

    My Worst Career Decision

    I worked at MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    While you do receive a car and a laptop that is where the pros of working at Middlebrook Pharmaceutical ends.

    Cons

    You have two very expensive drugs to sell. Both of these drugs have generic equivalents. Most doctors will laugh at the prospect of writing either of these drugs for $60 when you can have its equivalent for $4 at the pharmacy. To make it worse, most pharmacist will not stock either drug because of the pricing and coverage. WIth more that 45% of the sales force recently laid off, I would suspect that this company won't make it much longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people instead of a number.
