No opinion of CEO

Pros

They have a great benefits package and you get the typical car, bonus can be made if you live in the right area.

Cons

Communication with the company is weak, managed care coverage is terrible, and expect to do 3-5 dinners per week in order to meet company expectations. 8am-8pm is standard, ideas on how to grow business change bi-weekly, and bonus structure is tough. Reps ranked at the top in trimester 1 were ranked at the bottom in trimester 2 which means no bonus.

Advice to Management

Really trying to be honest... this company doesn't look good on your resume if you want to stay in pharm but if you get the job and it pays the bills... Do it for a year (if you don't get fired) and move on.

    Pros

    Small pharma attitude but growing. Upper management has experience and seems to know what they are doing. Company should be around for a long time.

    Cons

    Cut-throat environment. Even though the company has a bright future, if you don't hit your numbers you will either be fired or forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Pharma sales is dead. Invest more marketing energy on online presence and direct to consumer advertising. More and more patients research drugs, especially your current portfolio.
