    Micromanaged call center

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ParMed

    Pros

    You can earn decent money. You have the opportunity to work for Cardinal after one year. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    You are micromanaged to the T. The compensation plan is designed to make it impossible for you to reach quota. You can't voice your opinion to management without being reprimanded. Management lacks accountability. The compensation plan can dock you up to 10% a month, depending on vacation time and call metrics. Middle and upper Management has a military background, so you can imagine how they run things. The call metrics are too high and will burn you out. The sales training you receive is limited.

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

    Pros

    Part of Cardinal Health so benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    Management is sneaky, unprofessional and lies a lot. Don't believe the line that you will be making a 100k in a year or two. They start you out at $12 and hour plus commission, still haven't figured out how they come up with 100k. No one in Dublin office making anywhere near that! Lucky to make a couple hundred in commission. Management just says these things to get you to take the job and then they string you along with a lot of lies. They like to hire people right out of college because they are naive and just lucky to have a job. They think if they hang in there for a year or so they can go somewhere else and be a real pharmceutical rep. The accounts you are given are not distributed evenly. Some people get several actively buying accounts averaging several thousand dollars and others are given one or two accounts with maybe a hundred or two average. When you confront them about how unfairly the accounts are distributed they get defensive and act like they don't know what you are talking about. If you question anything with management you are on their targeted list and they will get rid of you. I have never worked in such horrible place. Atmosphere there is very tense and everyone still working there just trying to hang in there for a year so they can apply elsewhere within Cardinal Health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure who you think you are fooling, especially uppe rmanagement. You say that accounts are distributed fairly because "you supposedly don't look at how many and how much of buying accounts each rep gets." It is so obvious that before you even get out of training you have your favorites and they are given the best accounts. Anyone that you don't want to keep you just give them the crap accounts. It is so easy to manipulate accounts so that you can get rid of anyone that you label a troublemaker or don't like. You aren't fooling anyone with your lies, everyone just afraid to say anything for fear of retaliation.

    Pros

    I worked with great people, but there are no other Pros

    Cons

    Management is uneducated and unwilling to accept change no matter how beneficial it is to the company. They lied about salary and tried to hide the truth by presenting "annualized" reports. If that doesn't sound scary... let me explain: Try annualizing the McRib Sandwich. Yea, the numbers look good for a month or two. Far from the 100K they said. Turnover is worse than any company I have ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to school. Unless your goals are to hire people that will find other jobs, you are destroying yourself. Respectable salespeople demand respect and reward for their sales. You provide non of that. You can't expect people to come from 60k/yr+ to 25k/yr and be happy. If you weren't so untruthful, perhapse you would have better sales from your employees. Happy employees mean more money for them and the company. I learned that in High School, just in case you were wondering.

    Pros

    Sales Manager at Parmed is amazing. She is a professional, helpful, and a intelligent women.
    Great benefit package and is available to you on your first day employeed

    Cons

    Employees at parmed are all out to get each other. Never worked at a company where so many people attack one another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the people who cause problems even if they have been there for years. It will help your turn over rate with new employees. Also promote the employees who worked hard, and are good.
