    I have been working at Merck full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lead Exec Sales Rep Pros: High Profile Position in Sales Organization, Additional Leadership in Region, Responsibiity for high profile account management or peer to peer mentoring. Role is 80% field sales and 20% Leadership Role. Higher bonus potential.
    Company had a deep and rich pipeline of products for the future.

    Cons

    Large Company that is ultra conservative and weighed down by compliance policies and top heavy management. The Sales organization is slowed down many times by waiting to see if the legal department is going to approve our "messaging, marketing pieces, etc." This is likely a problem for all sales organizations -- but it is a challenge for sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your sales professionals by measuring with a sales incentive plan that pays out more than once a year. "The carrot" is so far down the road the workers forget that it is even out there.
