    I worked at The Medicines Company full-time


    Great people work here. For solid mentors, reliable colleagues, learning opportunities, and personal development, this company provides an excellent environment.


    Due to the size of the company, leadership is able to shift and change direction as needed to meet the needs of the business and the re-organizations can be taxing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive engagement with all levels of employees and transparent communications.

    Customer Solutions Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at The Medicines Company (Parsippany, NJ) in October 2016.


    I interviewed with the Human Strategy Recruiter over the phone. Next, I spoke with a manager from a different territory and another recently hired CSM. I then met with the hiring manager in person. I visited the home office and individually met with the Recruitment Coordinator, Director of Human Strategy, Human Strategy Recruiter, and Senior Director Change and Account Management. I finished interviewing with a phone interview with the National Vice President of Sales.

    Through the entire interview process, everyone was very professional, supportive, and genuine.

    Interview Questions


    I was very pleased with The Medicines Company offer. The company feels very different than other pharma companies, as it appears that they don't play games and work hard to present the best offer possible.
