    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis

    Pros

    The facility was very nice.

    Cons

    Management was very out of touch with the competency of the contract workers with respect to daily performance and productivity of the team members. They did not display any desire to gather input from the supervisors of the department when determining who was to get laid off and who was to be retained. This resulted in the loss of a number of outstanding performers while a few of the biggest slackers in the group were kept.

    Advice to Management

    Rely on feedback from the supervisory staff when it comes to making staffing decisions.

    Pros

    Good products. Physicians feel they are good

    Cons

    Very low salary compared to industry

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at salaries and adjust. Hiring an outside person with a higher salary than current employee is not fair

    Pros

    Great benefits, company car, good commissions. Everyone I worked with in the local territory was great and helped one another. Made many good friends for life.

    Cons

    After the regulations were put in place the company and managers began to micro manage everything. Use to be here is your quota and your territory. Go do your job. Ten it became here are the doctors in your territory you must see this one x amount of times per month. Some of these doctors didn't even use the type of pharmaceuticals we sold so there was no benefit to do that. If you didn't you got less than expected on your year end review. Even if you were well above quota.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to give a quota does it really matter how your sales people attain it, stop making them check the boxes for reasons that don't grow business. We know what we are doing!
