    Pros

    Great management, company car, full benefits, travel,phone,internet expense reimbursement, minimal meetings, no micromanaging. The overall experience at NovaQuest was very positive.

    Cons

    The con at working here is that despite all of NovaQuests efforts, they are still viewed as a fee-for0service contract sales force. The average salary can be slightly lower compared to the Big Pharma companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall the leadership was strong. I would recommend they try and retain their employees a little more by offering job placement after a contract has expired

    Pros

    Excellent first line management. This company has excellent benefits. The salaries are not extremely competitive. The salaries are not super low though.

    Cons

    There is currently very minimal room for growth. When your contract ends, there is typically not another one for you to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise the leadership to develop their employees more. I would also try to place internal candidates on new contracts first rather than hiring new employees.

    Pros

    Nice pay, treats employees well. Management understands that your hands are tied since you are only a contract sales force.

    Cons

    Contract can be terminated at any time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Negotiate better contracts so reps can actually influence, and are not simply support for contract company.
