    Pros

    Lot of Perks. Annual meetings were fun and the company gave out lots of gifts and annual stock options.

    Cons

    Bonuses are force ranked. You can grow your territory 1000% but will not get a bonus if you were the last one to ranked.

    Advice to Management

    Manage people based off their territory and numbers as opposed to other regions without the same obstacles.

    I worked at Salix Pharmaceuticals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great drug. Direct leadership, district manager and training manager, were awesome.

    Cons

    Overall, leadership is terrible. Comp plan is a game, one quarter you're up and the next you're down, which makes it impossible to consistently make good bonuses. Some territories are incredibly large, mine stretched over 3 states and 7 hours from one end to the other. Moral is pretty low.
