    Pros

    A great place to work. People know each other and care about each other. Job security. Advancement opportunities. Wide range of therapeutic experience opportunities. Competitive pay and bonus. Active interaction with senior management. Good benefits. Leading contract company in the industry. Huge recruiting department.

    Cons

    The company is getting so big it is beginning to lose some of the "family" feel. Difficult to transfer between divisions such as commercial to clinical

    Pros

    Quick and thorough during the hiring process.

    Cons

    They are contract company so it depends on whom you're hired under. In this case I'm employed in a startup company called Vernalis. Upper management has no idea what they are doing unfortunately.

    Pros

    A good way to get your foot in the door for medical or pharmaceutical sales. Large network of parent companies that they will help find new opportunities if your contract comes to an end.

    Cons

    Still a contract company with contract resources. Depending on the parent contract you may have limited resources as compared to full line reps.

    Pros

    Once you have worked for them they will try hard to get you another position when your contract ends. They also conduct direct hire interviews.

    Cons

    Be aware that this is a contract company and that contracts end. It isn't personal it is business bear this in mind.

    Pros

    This a great company that offers excellent benefits. The managers are very supportive and encourage you to work your best.

    Cons

    This is a contract company which means your job could end at any time. They handle layoffs very well and even try to help you locate a new opportunity within the company.
