    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to move up. Pay was pretty good and I felt the bonuses were attainable. Management seemed to be pretty responsive to feedback from the field.

    Cons

    The main way to succeed is being in a territory with good managed care but that's pharma I guess. It seemed a big managed care win means that the team involved would definitely hit presidents club and areas with poor coverage were just dismissed as being bad reps.

  8. Helpful (1)

    Generally very positive though because of the structure it was hard to move upwards to new opportunities.

    Pros

    Good benefits, co-workers were great, lunch was provided, and the pay was reasonable.

    Cons

    Poor communication between certain groups led to problems in how issues were prioritized, some of the equipment was antiquated, and promotion opportunities were limited.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on better upper-level communication so that different areas of the company can work with greater synergy. Often it seemed that each section of the company was acting independently and didn't understand what was going on outside a specific area.
