Pros

It's a good entry level job to get experience in pharmaceutical and medical device sales.

Cons

The commissions are extremely low so it is hard to stay motivated and there is no incentive to overachieve. There is no training on products or proper product support. They like to micromanage to the point of feeling inadequate. Management demands products and information in untimely manner without proper guidance or explanation of the benefits. There is no employee benefits so good luck on retirement.

Advice to Management

Take some sales management courses and devise a commission structure that will reward your sales people for all their hard work. Make goals attainable and the pay out worth while. Come up with accelerators and Presidents Clubs and other incentives to keep sales people motivated. Offer constructive criticism and ask for feedback on making the company better.

    I worked at Medisca full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, decent insurance coverage, RRSP matching plan, growing company, provides extensive training, good for getting a foot in the industry.

    Cons

    Nepotism is rampant, management is immature with uneven leadership skills, the work stations are like cattle pens, HR is not very trustworthy.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions based on data rather than fads. Get rid of employees who are only valuable because they're blindly loyal yes-men. Show appreciation to the "little people". Stop playing favourites.

    I worked at Medisca full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Parking lot and colleagues. IGA close by. Nice little park close by. Premiere Moison close by.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY poor management; VERBALLY abusive; very uncomfortable work stations; Canadian holidays not respected; no flexibility whatsoever; manager who yells at you disrespects you constantly; management steals your ideas and claims it was theirs; threatening tactics; cameras everywhere; no team spirit. This is the 21st century and this should never be allowed. I was looked at everyday with an evil threatening look everyday by a psychologically unstable person who verbally abuses employees. It must stop.

    Advice to Management

    Please put an end to this behavior in order to be successful.
