    I worked at Sun Pharma full-time

    Pros

    Decent Compensation and work location.

    Cons

    Have had several people in the role in the last few months as Management team is
    not skilled previously in Pharma and over their heads.

    Tons of Turnover!!

    Advice to Management

    Find professional Pharma Talent Acquisition Managers to lead who do not micro manage. Try to get an ATS tracking system and move into the 1990's.

    Best to hire those who have worked in pharma and not previously for HR for a toy store.

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

    Pros

    N/A I have no Pro’s to share. I think this is a sinking ship.

    Cons

    Leadership at Sun is poor. They perform in a very transactional mode. Extreme nepotism and sad recruitment process. Not ready to play in the same ball park as legimate Dermatology companies. Not well respected among Dermatologist community and less respected among their own employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please don’t waste time with qualified, respected employees during recruitment process. Managers are not honest, advice is to be straight forward, do not make agreements you have no plans in keeping , your word is your reputation. I can see why I was told by KOL’s not to take a job with Sun.

    I worked at Sun Pharma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, when they actually pay you on time. Flexible work hours in the field. They have messed up our commissions 3 times this year.

    Cons

    The company has zero leadership, HR is atrocious, home office won’t return emails or calls, compensation continues to change in favor of not paying representatives (mid-year changes) RUN! just ask someone who still works here if you can find them. 75% turnover in less than a year in my division. Or ask a dermatologist about their oponion of Sun Pharma

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like they are replaceable...stop raising the price of Levulan

    I worked at Sun Pharma full-time

    Pros

    Overall atmosphere is employee friendly and productive.

    Cons

    It's HR's responsibility to understand the dynamic of the organization and work in a manner and fashion in the company's best interest, and to remember the Human in their department's title. Although the entry level HR employees seem to embody that spirit, it seems that the people who control policy are far too busy playing politics.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better understanding of what's going on.

    Pros

    Some very bright individuals associated with the company
    Entry into company is not hard
    Sun has a very diverse portfolio of Dermatological branded drugs

    Cons

    Significant amount of turn over at ALL levels
    Small company with large pharma goals and metrics
    Lack of overall direction from management

    Advice to Management

    No advice for upper management. They do their best with the resource at their disposal. I can say I honestly don't know what intermediate management does...
