    I worked at Sucampo as an intern

    Pros

    Warm welcome, wanted to get to know interns
    Decent amount of flexibilty
    Worked with my schedule

    Cons

    Not a ton of work or organization for interns. Wish there were more interns to get to know in each department. ORganzied intern events would have been great!

    Advice to Management

    Implementing a structured internship program would make this position more appealing. Events or other activities to get to know the other departments and see which we would enjoy most.

    Pros

    I have worked with the 'Gerard Group' in 2012 and they did more than any other Recruiter/Staffing Agency for me to make sure that I felt comfortable when going into an interview and relocate. They are a very detailed oriented team and work hard to maintain a relationship with their employees. Ernie Pineda who I had the pleasure of meeting and knowing always advised me on certain positions and recommended me for others. His work ethic is outstanding in my opinion. Ernie is a great person to work with. I am looking forward to working with him in the future.

    Cons

    nothing but praises to the Gerard Group

    I have been working at Sucampo as a contractor

    Pros

    Autonomy and good work-life balance. As a sales rep you have 2 levels of managers you deal with so if one is bad you aren't completely out of luck. Regional sales managers seem very good, at least mine is great.

    Great place to get experience.

    Cons

    I've come across/know a few offices that don't have product samples and would like them. However I can't get them added to my target list on request. I've been waiting for management to add them to my list so I call log more calls, and then they complain because I'm not hitting my goal.

    The original sales group who licensed the rights for the flagship product still have their sales team on it, and we were given the stuff they didn't want to deal with. You will have to fight for most of your calls on the few good targets you've received because the other sales force will probably still be covering them as well.

    You will only have one product to present to physicians in an office, and it isn't a blockbuster or anything most doctors are excited about so you won't have a very warm reception.

    Advice to Management

    Not all states are the same. Move faster to enable reps or adjust expectations to fit what they can reasonably achieve. There are some reps who are sitting at call averages way below expectations, and I doubt it is because they aren't capable.

    Pros

    Learn more about how a pharma company works.

    Cons

    Didn't give interns ID badges, so we couldn't get into elevator until 9am when they worked freely for everyone. A lot of us arrived to work earlier than 9am, so we would be forced to wait outside or in the parking garage when we could be working.

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

    Pros

    I was there 5 years and was part of an exclusive team that they recruited for their first sales team. It was great for the first half and then we went public....got in a lawsuit....lost all vision

    Cons

    company has no true leadership or vision...

    Advice to Management

    learn how to become leaders-you had an elite sales force-no one had under 7 -8 years experience and most had advanced degrees....we needed a team we could look up to and respect
