    Pros

    Great benefits, willing to give a chance to those wanting to break into industry, nearly unlimited expense budget.

    Cons

    District Managers are often less than 30 years old with little to no work or life experience. Unprofessional, unskilled at managing and bringing out the best in others - they manage with an iron club and have an arrogant condescending demeanor. They would most likely fail in any other management role at any other company or industry since their lack of professionalism is astounding. They usually have to skill set in management, they were at one time a sales rep with a few months of great performance and got promoted to manager, though they possess no management qualities.They endorse and encourage unethical sales practices. Leadership beyond DMs is also disappointing. Hands off, lack of communication, short-sighted. Awful training. Quality of overall sales force : abrasive, overly aggressive, loud, trashy, inarticulate, and education from less than impressive Universities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice...this place has been a bomb for quite a while.

    Pros

    Small company culture and excellent incentive compensation plan. Also, one of the few pharma companies that offered stock options and restricted shares as part of the incentive compensation plan.

    Cons

    No company support in negotiating with managed care for favored tier status of it's promoted products. Paranoia and fear based culture in the last year or two due to Dept. of Health investigations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a good lawyer.

    Pros

    More generous bonus structure than other pharmaceutical companies, employees were offered stock options. The better the rep, the more stocks you received.

    Cons

    They were acquired by Activas Inc. Upper management was always changing as well. Shortly after I was hired it seemed like the company was becoming more and more unstable.
