Current Employee - Sales Representative in Indianapolis, IN
Current Employee - Sales Representative in Indianapolis, IN
Approves of CEO

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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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
