    Pros

    Products that require an Rx like pharmaceuticals, but are more of a natural, personalized form of therapy without all of the nasty a/e's of pharmaceuticals.

    Cons

    Since being acquired by Nestle Health Science, they are going thru some MAJOR changes while trying to align the small corporate culture that existed at Pamlab to big (actually humongous) company culture within the Nestle family.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know if you are empowered to do this but, push back on some of the initiatives that seemingly are intended to turn the sales force into synchronized robots and serve to undermine rep individuality.


  3. Too many false promises.

    I worked at Pamlab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The paid time off is great. There's not much more that I can say that was actually a "Pro".

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth. Horrible bonus structure for an inherited "white space" that will not prescribe. Seemed somewhat racist with the entry walls lined with pictures of slaves being used as guinea pigs for surgical procedures and what not. There are no pictures of successful black people on any wall. This was not inviting for ethnicities. This environment seems a bit hostile.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the bonus plan and take down the horrible pictures of slaves.

    Pros

    I loved my district manager, he was the reason why I stuck around. I liked the fact that when my day was done, I was done, very minimal admin work.

    Cons

    Lots of false promises, not much for career growth and development. I was there when "old southern boy" mentality and culture was the normal status, but after acquisition by Nestle new management seems well spoken, but still little hope for career. Seems like this is an experiment for Nestle in pharmaceuticals.

    Advice to Management

    Create better growth opportunities for those who strive to succeed. Create goals that are fair not based on a territory where someone came in brand new and is granted rockstar status based on limited work.

    I worked at Pamlab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Trying to get into sales, no competition, big name company to push resume.

    Cons

    Owned by company w little understanding of market, no R&D department, no future products, current products genericd many times over, no coverage for products, majority cash pay for products, company lacks strategy. Tries many options but no real answer to company sales issues, no opportunity for growth. CANDID AND HONEST REVIEW.

    Advice to Management

    No advice for management as this small company revolves old managers for new managers just in need of work. Winger tee is no longer CEO but straight forward.

    I worked at Pamlab full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company offers ample holiday pay and paid time off. Great products for patients with chronic medical conditions.

    Cons

    The company has recently been acquired through Nestle Health Science. They have had substantial layoffs so future of sales force seems a bit uncertain. The products are not typically covered by insurance so getting clinicians to prescribe is challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Honest and more frequent communication.

    I have been working at Pamlab full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been developed by my managers and could walk if I chose to, but why would I? I have been with this company through thick and thin, I am going to stick around for the thin. Everything happens for a reason. You can't always be on the up swing. It will make me appreciate the next time we are. My company wouldn't abandon me if I had problems. Why would I abandon them?

    Cons

    Every company has a con. Mine for them is new product/pipeline....please get moving!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your middle management and worker bees. Act on the advice and just don't listen. They know more about the company than you do.

    Pros

    The company was just bought out.

    Cons

    Old management style is still in play.

    Advice to Management

    The best thing that could happen to this company is for the nestle people to come in and blow out all the good old boys in management.
