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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the opportunity to grow my territory with the encouragement of my DSM. The company was responsive to my suggestions in a difficult, technical field. I appreciated the clinical excellence and the selling support too. The best part? The patient focus that drove every call every day. What a relief to focus on helping people to get better!

    Cons

    The last year I was with the company it became more concerned with call numbers rather than effective calls. The sales results were not coordinating with the new emphasis but the company still seemed to direct their efforts away from what had worked before in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Drive to meet the needs of patients through excellent education, support and expansion of the base patient understanding of products. Let the Reps run!

    I have been working at Jazz Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Sales and Marketing teams are amazing

    Cons

    Research and Development team are not seasoned to the degree that most other companies. Not a place to learn and develop

    Advice to Management

    Your R&D survey is low. Look at the catalyst in the group at the VP level

    I worked at Jazz Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Executive Team with proven ability to raise needed capital

    Cons

    Almost bet the ranch on extended release Luvox and expanded the sales team on unrealistic assumptions leading to a NPV that was at least a full order of magnitude higher than reality. Better performance after those missteps.

    Pros

    Jazz has a good mission, is growing, has good benefits and is overall an OK company to work for.

    Cons

    There is a lack of leadership in IT that means it is always running behind the business rather than being in front of it. The company is struggling with how to work globally which means lots of early mornings leading to long days.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CIO

    Pros

    Interesting products, great benefits, very smart colleagues
    The company has products that do help patients and that's the best part about coming to work.

    Cons

    Highly political, very much who you know and not based on merit
    Tough environment that is overshadowed by lots of factions and power dynamics. Managers are unsupportive and have no problems throwing their staff under the bus both overtly and covertly.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a better and more supportive culture where collaboration is the focus. Stop monitoring your staff and allow flexibility in schedules. Also offer more growth opportunities and punish those who aren't competent in their work instead of rewarding them with more headcount.

    Pros

    Never a dull moment always busy. Location is in Palo Alto California which is south of San Francisco but worth the commute.

    Cons

    The benefits could have been better for the employees. Contractors sometimes had better benefits than regular employees had in a year
