Pros

Nice atmosphere, relaxed atmosphere in my area.

Cons

Can be difficult to get people on-board with some projects. The relaxed atmosphere is nice, but it can feel a bit lethargic at times. A bit of an 'old boy' network in the top echelons with the older (mainly men) enjoying excellent salaries, with a bit of a difficult climb for talented younger people. Most of the really talented people move to other companies in order to get ahead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better talent spotting at the junior levels. Too stultifying at the top levels.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A full bag of products. Managers seemed to genuinely care. The sales training program was robust for the pharma industry

    Cons

    Overall, I did not like the pharma sales process irregardless of the company. Not much room for advancement within AZ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be prudent to look at another means of accessing physicians. The old model of waiting for the physician does not work anymore.
