Pros

Compensation can be good but you have to sacrafice values and work life balance to get to that point.

Cons

Incompetent middle management, no opportunities for growth, highly political work environment and unethical leadership.

Advice to Management

Start training your people rether than promoting them. Take responsibility for lack of leadership and hold middle management and sales representatives accountable for unethical behavior instead of rewarding it. Think with your head, instead of letting your ego guide you in decision making.

    I worked at Medicis Pharmaceutical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job growth was great, salary and bonuses were great too. Manager was competent and fun to work with. Creativity was encouraged and my ideas were taken seriously. Flexible work environment and great culture. The people were phenomenal and competent in their job skills and level. Employee training and support were superb.

    Cons

    It was sold to another pharmaceutical company and all of the great aspects of the company went away.

    Advice to Management

    It's too bad the company was sold, I enjoyed my time very much.

    Pros

    Great commission structure, employees are quality people, great products.

    Cons

    You will NEVER hear a word about anything you did well on, but you WILL hear it immediately if you do not perform well, or simply make your goals. You will be asked multiple times throughout the day by your manager where you are for sales when you're close to a kicker date, you will be micromanaged & your job threatened constantly. Medicis does NOT value their salespeople- they truly believe you are completely replaceable & that there are tons of others waiting for your job. They also do not invest in marketing their brands. Look at Dysport- not even a real player in the toxin market after 2 years!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Put some $$$$ behind your products (Dysport) & get in the game or sell it to someone who will. It deserves a bigger piece of the market- its a GREAT product. Dr's don't want to be your salespeople- Do DTC!!!!!
    And read a book or two on modern management & how to get the most out of your employees. Its not through constant negativity & threats. Its through positive reinforcement & development.
