    Pros

    Middle management and employees had a great work ethic. Initially it was a fun place - work hard, play hard. The technical expertise was very high.

    Cons

    Too many changes in executive management and strategy led to demise. The venture capital groups had too much politics and made some strange decisions on financing, executives and m&a activities.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should have acted quicker to get the IPO done before the economy took a dive. All of the M&A activity was not kept quiet - too many visitors to the HQ - should have held meeetings offsite.

    Pros

    Great benefits. DM was solid and was great at communicating honestly with the district.

    Cons

    Goals and promises of new products never came to fruition. We kept hearing about company IPO and new products in the pipeline. Instead, we sold me-too drugs.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the sales team.

    Pros

    Company sustained the shareholder values and Natasha gets the CEO job.

    Cons

    Natasha made critical mistake when she laid off nearly 2/3 of specialty sales force without any warning a few months after her promotion to CEO position. A lot of good managers (District and Regional) along with good representatives lost their jobs a month before Christmas.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget who got you to the place you are at; Sales reps/managers are the bloodline of any profitable business or companies. They should be the first to hire and the last to let go.


  9. Great experience...while it lasted. Company has sold.
