    Pros

    This was a dynamic place to work, largely because of the creative and energetic workforce. Pay was good to very good. There was a lot of talk about development and some action, particularly in the Sales and Marketing Group.

    Cons

    Internal politics, particularly in the Sales group at the top level. The head of Sales was a condescending, abusive bully. Now he's the CEO........ Draw your own conclusions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the creativity and ideas of mid-level leaders. They are bright and motivated.

    I worked at Sciele Pharma

    Pros

    They hire representatives without previous pharma experience.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than other pharma companies. When management makes bad decisions, layoffs occur so you pay the price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge territory issues outside the representatives control. It's very defeating to work harder and other territories benefit from location.
