    Pros

    Pay scale, health benefits, car allowance, flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Instability, inability of upper management to communicate to what is happening with future contracts

    Communicate what is happening with future contracts and work harder to place displaced representatives

    Pros

    Great management, company car, full benefits, travel,phone,internet expense reimbursement, minimal meetings, no micromanaging. The overall experience at NovaQuest was very positive.

    Cons

    The con at working here is that despite all of NovaQuests efforts, they are still viewed as a fee-for0service contract sales force. The average salary can be slightly lower compared to the Big Pharma companies.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the leadership was strong. I would recommend they try and retain their employees a little more by offering job placement after a contract has expired

    Pros

    Excellent first line management. This company has excellent benefits. The salaries are not extremely competitive. The salaries are not super low though.

    Cons

    There is currently very minimal room for growth. When your contract ends, there is typically not another one for you to work.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise the leadership to develop their employees more. I would also try to place internal candidates on new contracts first rather than hiring new employees.


  5. "happy until laid off during maternity leave (hard to get over)"

    Pros

    While employed, felt like company was great company to work for. Fair pay, fair direct management, reasonable work expectations from NQ managers.

    Cons

    They make minimal effort to place laid off employees on new contracts. Was told my position was eliminated when I was laid off my last week of maternity leave, only to find out it was filled with a person from another territory. Not a working-mother friendly company. It's hard to argue that a company has a good work-life balance when you get laid off while on maternity leave and find out your position was filled with another employee.

    Advice to Management

    You create a bad company image when you lay off an employee on maternity leave.

    Pros

    Pros

    Nice pay, treats employees well. Management understands that your hands are tied since you are only a contract sales force.

    Cons

    Contract can be terminated at any time

    Advice to Management

    Negotiate better contracts so reps can actually influence, and are not simply support for contract company.

    Pros

    There is Decent Salary & Support.

    Cons

    No current employee loyalty when it comes to placing them in new contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Do not make promises to current workforces that you can't keep with regard to placement in new contract opportunities.
