Pros

Base salary and company car, all expenses are paid for. Products are great and do work. Majority of the folks are good people.

Cons

Company doesn't take care of the good sales talent, cannot retain top performers. Bonus structure breeds mediocrity. Company doesn't keep their word on future promises.

Advice to Management

Reward your top reps with a bonus structure that makes them want to go out and work hard. The bonus structure is horrible.

    I have been working at Pamlab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and I feel like my contribution to the team makes an impact on the business. Would happily stay if I could.

    Cons

    Not enough contracts with different manufacturers. Our primary manufacturer is having rumors go around about moving OTC and they own our pharmacy so it seems BDH may be closed or who knows what. No response from Pamlab but the writing has been on the wall with their lack of response. It's really a shame as BDH has exceeded sales goals consistently. But insurance changes are still putting Pamlab deep in the red despite the phenomenal double digit growth of BDH.

    Advice to Management

    Pray the doors stay open.

    I worked at Pamlab full-time

    Pros

    Middle management mostly good leaders. Some very talented brand leaders as well as sales managers. Many hard working sales representatives. Solid individuals who work well as a cross-functional team in the Covington, LA home office.

    Cons

    Formerly a local, privately owned company. In a 2013 acquisition, Pamlab was purchased by Nestle Health Science. This turned out to be unfortunate for employees and the community, although this was no apparent immediately. NHSc dismantled the organization in just 3 short years: hundreds of employees affected by personnel layoffs, withdrawn support for local community projects (i.e. Habitat for Humanity, etc...), and Nestle Health Science VPs who commuted from New Jersey providing.no real sense of commitment to the people or the organization. Nestle Health Science sold the company this year to an Italian company, Alpha Sigma

    Advice to Management

    Nestle and some Pamlab executives appeared to be disconnected from the employees. Employees, those in the trenches, can be your greatest asset. They have lots of ideas. There was understandable concern over the company P&L but much less concern around employee motivation and company morale. Employee surveys revealed enormous interest on the part of employees to work as a team to address/resolve these problems. Lots of positive soundbites from executives but very few actionable objectives to do so. Losing Rx status and insurance reimbursement for products was the nail in the coffin. Pamlab and Nestle executives just could not turn the business in a positive direction and therefore sold the company.
