    I worked at Eisai -New Jersey full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Base pay is ok. Tenure reps are good to work with until they leave for better opportunity.

    Cons

    Bonus is a joke, upper management will change your goals every month to make sure you hardly get a payout. Turnover is among the highest I ever experienced. They track your driving through the car GPS and don't allow you drive the company car on personal time. Last minute decisions on POA leave you scrambling to manage home life. HR is clueless and seems to be unaware on its purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new President or do something that revamps the company as the current situation is dreadful. Culture is at industry all time low and nobody trust leadership. Things need to change or else you will continue to be a company that is simply a stepping stone for reps always looking for a better opportunity.

    I worked at Eisai -New Jersey full-time

    Pros

    The people. I worked there for two years and had the honest pleasure of working with some of the best people I have ever worked with. People I will consider part of my family forever.

    Pay and bonus were at industry standard, although don't count too much on your full bonus

    Cons

    Sadly- almost everything else. Upper management are completely insane and have no idea how to run a company. Everyone with real knowledge has left. They don't understand oncology or neurology- from the science right up to how to predict revenue. The CEO of Oncology is a loud-mouthed, foul bully. BD is completely inept and have no experience or idea what they're doing.

    The company is a serious sinking ship

    Advice to Management

    Change everything. From The CEO Mr. Naito to every single executive across the board. Since it won't happen, there's not much to say that will save this company in the long term.

    Pros

    Good salary and bonus. Manageable workload. Balance of life/work. Could be a dream workplace if you are incompetent, or not motivated.

    Cons

    Bad corporate culture. incompetent management. Top management are prone to take high risks with negative returns. The results: waste of money and talents.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your talents at home. Bring your knee pads to work everyday and you will be fine.

    I have been working at Eisai -New Jersey full-time

    Pros

    Most coworkers are nice and helpful even though they are also stressed out.

    Cons

    Most levels of Management & HR do not care about the people. Use to be a better company but now run like a prison! Doing the work of 4-5 people!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be more flexible -if you treat your employees better, they will return that 10 fold!

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Eisai is its people. There are truly some really great people here. The company has a very good benefits package as well.

    Cons

    The company has been in a constant state of flux over the last 6+ years. Leadership is not as strong as it used to be and needs a lot of work at all levels of management. The environment has become very demanding with no real reward.

    Advice to Management

    Value all your employees and empower them to succeed.

    Pros

    Great product and a few good work colleagues.

    Cons

    Impressed during the interview process but a landslide nightmare afterwards. Manager went on aggressive rage filled rampages rather than use constructive words. Very unprofessional way to express his frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the bad managers. FYI to managers - Sales reps are NOT "born", they develop skills through many years of learning and hard work EARNING their right to be considered a successful sales representative. Management designed and falsely completed performance reviews to justify firing reps regardless of their success, skills or actual performance. System designed to discourage their sales reps rather than build them up for success. Do not design a process that sets the rep up for no successful way through the process the successful ones will only want to leave.

    Pros

    At the beginning, I was really impressed with managers that I met during the hiring process. I really hit it off with the district managers that interviewed me and the regional manager. The entire interview process lasted less than a week. Even the on-boarding was relatively smooth. The company provided a vehicle, gas card and even bought me the latest iPhone at the time.

    Cons

    However, it was during training that the wheel started to fall off. The training program was disorganized and there was very little support from within the company. Then when I met the rest of the team, I realized why. At the first POA meeting, it was like high school all over again. There were cliques, high maintenance personalities and just incompetent sales people. When I went back to the home office in New Jersey, the internal staff was no different. In fact, almost everyone there was either rude or ineffective. Listening to senior management talk was an early indication that the future at Eisai was not bright.
