    I have been working at Depomed full-time (More than 3 years)


    The executive team walks their talk.


    Although we have stock with the company they limit their stock & bonus at time of performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    They should revisit how much stock they offer with raises and bonus at review time.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Depomed.


    Straightforward questions. Make sure you know the products and specialists, even better if you can get a direct referral from one. Understanding of Specialty Pharmacies, Prior Authorizations, and Buy & Bill is also helpful. Close hard for the next step in the process. Ask about Training, Territory, Previous Rep, etc... to show you are invested.

Company Updates

  • As part of Migraine Awareness Week, Depomed has teamed up with the American Migraine Foundation (AMF), a non-profit foundation supporting innovative research aimed at improving the lives of those who suffer from migraine and other disabling headaches. Depomed has created a 90-second video animation titled “Demystifying Migraine” that depicts what people living with migraine go through, including debilitating head pain, missed work days and lost time with family and friends.

    Demystifying Migraine

    It's estimated that ~ 36 million Americans suffer from migraine, but only 1 of every 3 people talk with a doctor about their headaches. Of those, only half get the right diagnosis. For more than 90% of those affected, migraine interferes with education, career and social activities.

  • Migraine Awareness Week - September 6 – 12, 2015 Annual worldwide event created with the goal of generating a wider understanding of migraine as a serious public health issue, its effects on millions of sufferers and to reduce the stigma.The week aims to encourage people with migraine to seek information and advice and to help those who do not have migraine to understand more about the condition.
