    I worked at Meda full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people, culture, and management at Meda were great. A job I will truly miss. Hope to find a similar company to work at.

    Cons

    Sadly Meda was recently acquired by another pharma company and the decision was made to close the Somerset office. All jobs went to Pittsburgh.

    Pros

    I learned a lot while I was there and my managers were great to work for, very helpful. I enjoyed my time working there.

    Cons

    They were bought out by another company and many jobs were lost. The salaries and bonus plan could have been better.

    I have been working at Meda full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a feeling of family at Meda, the leadership exhibit an interest in every employee and want to provide all of the tools necessary for success.

    Meda was just purchased by Mylan and there have been massive lay-offs. There seems to have been a quantum shift in management philosophy.

    Pros

    If you want to be changing people's lives on a daily basis, MEDA is the place for you.

    It's a bit burocratic and old school in some ways, but I think they're trying to become better at it.

    Keep embracing change and technology

    Pros

    Salary is decent. I had a great manager when I was hired, then he left after 3 months of being hired. The training was extremely long and difficult

    Cons

    Management is not good. They do not trust their employees and check up on them all the time. They are about to be bought out by another company, so you have no job security.

    Advice to Management

    Stop checking up on your reps.

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. My experiences with district and regional managers were very positive. Employee growth and advancement is encouraged.

    Cons

    Company has been acquired by Mylan Pharmaceuticals. Major uncertainty as to what is going to happen to North American employees.

    Advice to Management

    The culture and values at Meda have a positive impact on employees. Career opportunities are available and a good work/life balance is possible. Compensation is on the lower end.

    Pros

    Excellent team of people who work well together. Very good training program. A Small enough company that is capable of making changes happen quickly.

    Cons

    Does not offer a high enough financial incentive (commission is low) Some territories require an excessive amount of travel.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the territories smaller and allow reps. to see more physicians within the small areas.
