The company is not going to fold but everything else you mentioned is 100% accurate. I am so pissed off right now at this company. I'm sure someone is going to chime in and say we complain, but the reality is that when you are treated well and then all of a sudden the carpet is pulled from beaneath you, it is not easy to accept.
This bullshit with this Aricept goals has a lot of people furious. I am looking to get out of this company as soon as possible and I know I'm not alone. Eisai just likes to make its employees angry and screw them with money. And its getting worse.

First off, your final sentence is just silly. But I won't slam the entire post because you're pretty much right on about mgmt and this company. They're not going to fold though.
Attention to Representatives who were part of the Eisai expansions in 2001 and 2003:
Now is the time to leave. I'm sure you realize that companies know just how long they want their reps to stay on board. It costs them X amount of dollars to fly you out to training, ride with reps and your manager, etc. They understand that retaining people early on in the process is critical so they get a return on investment from you. I imagine that you've fully paid off their investment in you after after 2 years. That's a ballpark figure. Go ahead and extend that to 3 years if it makes you feel better about it....
Think back to what Eisai management did to you right around year 3 with the company. It was so obvious that mgmt considered you "paid off" at that point because of their blatant move of adjusting the promotional amount awarded to those who went from MSR to MSS. It was a 10% increase in addition to the 3-4% annual increase. The 2001 expansion reps were given a letter explaining that it was decreased substantially.
This is not the sort of thing a company does with retention in mind. It was a pure cost cutting measure. And they didn't really have a concern about an exodus of reps. Shit, they already bagged a good 3 years out of you. And they could replace you with another rep with 0 to 2 years experience. Hell, it's a buyers market. Wyeth and several other companies laid off, so Eisai could get someone for cheap at this point.
I post this not to be hurtful toward these good people. I'm a friend. And sometimes it takes a good friend to kick you in the ass when they know it's the right thing to do. I know many are keen to what's going on at Eisai, but also see plenty who still somehow manage to drink every last drop of that Eisai kool-aid and come back for more. WAKE UP!
2003 expansion reps: I was there when you were hired and left shortly after. Don't know you folks well at all. But read the writing on the wall. It's been almost 3 years for you. You've probably heard the older reps lamenting about the good ole days. Well, I don't know how many reps from those good ole days are left, but I have to think the number is small. You've got a good 2 years under your belt. Why the hell should you stick around if Eisai, a mid-tier pharmaceutical company, treats you like a big pharma company?
I'm told the company never suggested that a generic Zonegran was in the works. All the sudden, 3 companies get approved in December?!? Puhleeze. These homos in mgmt will lie to their own mamas if it helped them. Don't believe a word they say about their pipeline.
You want a true representation of the Eisai pipeline?
Go to clinicaltrials.gov
You'll see a shitload of studies that they're recruiting for. Of course, it takes about a year to fully recruit for studies. Many are not even started recruiting. In short, Eisai is several years away from actually bringing an oncology product to market. That's right. Several years.
The purchase of Zonegran and Fragmin make this company a laughing stock among industry analysts and executives. The company has one strong business mind left and he's virtually handcuffed. Sorry EB.

I agree the time is ripe to leave. Eisai has too many reps and not enough products. This means crappy payouts or lay offs or some combination. As soon as I find a real specialty position without numerous counterparts and with a decent bonus plan, I am out of here. The kool-aid is getting too sweet!!!

This message has been written to respond to time to leave company it's going to hell. This is so true Eisai will not fold but it can't keep function with just Aricept and Aciphex. They do not want keep people because no work for them. Mangement told me that the bonus will get even small so more and more people will leave. I would advise everyone to start getting the resume together and leve before its's to late

I would totally agree. First of all who would buy Fragmin and Z-gram. Bonus will get even small until there are not any. The writting on the wall LEAVE WHILE YOU CAN

The company will still profit nicely from Zonegran and Fragmin. Once again the reps, if not smart enough to see the writing on the wall, will sell them and make nothing.
If the company does not fix this Aricept goal dilemma and everyone suffers a small bonus, then that will be their way of making us leave/quit. Now we just have to wait and see what happens. NO goal changes for Aricept and you will see a mass exodus for sure.
