    Pros

    -Great bonus potential if you are at the top
    -Decent salary
    -Nice car, free gas, great benefits
    -Left alone to do your job, managers stay out of your way unless of course you aren't performing

    Cons

    -Force ranking system needs work, you are constantly trying to beat yourself from the previous trimester. Also if you have negative growth with a product you receive no bonus even if you are at the top of the ranking report.
    -Bottom 30% receive no bonus no matter what
    -Middle of the line products, poor formulary coverage in many areas.
    -Required to do 2 medical education programs per week, little work/life balance.

    Pros

    Good base salary, company car and great expense allowance

    Cons

    Training was horrible, management was too young and green, changed bonus structure and selling techniques multiple times and products are not the best on the market by far. Also known in the industry as the "shady" company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they have questions

    Pros

    Great pay scale, ability to make a lot of money if you are at the top of the rankings. They use a sliding scale, so the bottom half doesn't get paid commission.

    Cons

    Poor management, they use a blanket style that doesn't always work in the midwest. you are penalized for having a smaller territory, they look at raw number of scripts more than market share. If you have a large territory and ability to get more scripts you will do better even if the market share isn't as high.

    Advice to Management

    Get local managers that understand the docs in the area. All managers are from NY, NJ area for midwest, CA for west coast.

    Pros

    Nice office in the UK next to Brooklands race track.
    Small company so you get to join the dots more easily if you want to (the UK company is about 50 people all in 1 open office area)

    Cons

    Company was extremely money conscious (seemed a very cold company - interest in staff satisfaction seemed non-existent) and lots of people were contractors. There wasn't a very good atmosphere and people seemed down trodden. Staff turnover was high. I didn't look forward to work, feedback always seemed to be negative (as if management were deliberately trying to put staff down). Traffic to the UK office is extremely bad, I wouldn't accept a job unless flexitime was offered. Some aspects of the company seemed unpleasant - there were some concerns about drugs being priced low to increase market share and then prices jacked up once patients were dependent.

    Advice to Management

    Give attention to staff satisfaction - have regular staff satisfaction surveys.
    Conduct 360 reviews of managers - there was a lot of unreasonable pressure put on subordinates and senior managers seemed to not care.
    Address any ethics concerns - have anonymous surveys to find out any concerns people have.

    Pros

    Great way to get your foot in the door. Bonus payouts are high.

    Cons

    Company is only concerned with growth. If you are not consistently growing the business, they fire you. I started in Oct. 2011, by Dec. 2012 only 1 person from my 12 person training class is left. They are happy to replace you. DMs often suggest questionable ethical/legal practices.

    Advice to Management

    Take more pride in your employees. Don't get rid of someone just because they had one bad trimester. Appreciate the relationships your reps have built. Invest in training those who are struggling. Don't always blame the rep first...could it be the DM? Could it be a territory specific issue? Do you really think a $125 per person dinner is going to earn you the business? Don't punish reps for not meeting the ridiculous amount of "medical education" events. Perhaps those providers have families and would rather spend their time with them.
