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

    Pros

    Shionogi has a fantastic culture. You really feel part of something meaningful. They have great products that will make an impact on healthcare.

    Cons

    I think they have taken time to identify their business plan. There may have been too much focus on short term opportunities. However, with a long range plan now in place, the future looks very bright.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your present culture and focus. It is what attracted many of us to the company and will keep us productive for years to come.

    Pros

    Small pharma with lots of potential.

    Cons

    Upper management with great ideas, but not able to stick with a plan and execute it. Then they become micro managers about things that do not grow business.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing and trust that you have the right people to do the job and let them do it. You have to trust them and let them have room to grow professionally and do their jobs.

    Very bright group of coworkers. Management needed to be a bit more involved but seems they have rectified that issue.

    Pros

    This was a dynamic place to work, largely because of the creative and energetic workforce. Pay was good to very good. There was a lot of talk about development and some action, particularly in the Sales and Marketing Group.

    Cons

    Internal politics, particularly in the Sales group at the top level. The head of Sales was a condescending, abusive bully. Now he's the CEO........ Draw your own conclusions.

    Advice to Management

    Use the creativity and ideas of mid-level leaders. They are bright and motivated.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They hire representatives without previous pharma experience.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than other pharma companies. When management makes bad decisions, layoffs occur so you pay the price.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge territory issues outside the representatives control. It's very defeating to work harder and other territories benefit from location.
