No Bubba Watson but I did shoot a 77 today! Nice to be back at the club with my buddies and knocking a little winter rust off the game. Have a great weekend everyone!

It really depends on who your current supervisor is.

At this point, I believe that there is no place worse than Merck. I wouldn't have said that ten years ago. Then, I would have said there is no place better.

Look, the company is huge. We little folks really cant do much damage, we just don't have the firepower needed to do it. Merck isn't going to go out of business due to the 15 X 15 Guy's exploits. Although The 15 X 15 guy isn't taking much of a bite out of Merck's ass, what he does have is the personal satisfaction of knowing in a very small way he fucked' em back. Bravo!
Thanks!

I no longer understand the loyalty to this company. They have no vision, no products, no pipeline, no leadership..... All they have are suck up managers & upper management looking to stick around and suck as much as they can off the corporate tit. Seeing this, why not do the same? I have for a couple years now and it's VERY satisfying! Mother does not care about you so give it a try.

I hope your 'buddy' has other 'customers' as generous as Merck to make his eatery a success. The countdown to get rid of nearly all reps is on thanks to the strategies of our peers. I'm sure you could care less about losing your 15x 15 lifestyle but can you say the same about your 'buddy'?

I'm so glad I was strong enough to see that working for Merck is just one big charade. It's not really what you do as a rep but it's what your manager thinks you do. All that you have to do is create that image that you are that Kool-Aid drinking hard working rep. I was that rep in the past and have that reputation still today. Since I have that solid reputation, it was so easy for me to apply and maintain my 15x15 strategy.

Let's face it, management has and will continue to make up lies and put pressure on the older reps in order to make them leave. These are the same reps that were award winners in the past. The only thing that has changed is that we had innovative product to sell then. Look in our bag now. There is nothing in there that is new or innovative. Merck is dying a slow death. The best way for them to keep looking good for Wall St is by reducing the expense side of the business. Less reps = less expense.

I'm gonna keep doing my thing and cashing these nice checks with Merck as long as I can. Upper management does it on a large scale so I don't feel guilty at all. I seriously worked about five hours last week. If people want to make fun of me and judge me, they need to take a long look in the mirror and ask themselves what do they do for Merck that is so special that Merck won't give them the same horrible treatment?

Take care everybody. Hey, it looks like more snow is on the way for us. Great, more snow days!

The 15x15 Guy
You're right, it is all about how management perceives any given employee. I've seen many phony's advance up the corporate ladder even though they were completely worthless. What they really were, was a great bullshitter that had management completely hoodwinked.

You're also correct that try as they might, management cannot and will not save their way to a profit. They can ONLY grow the business by selling more of it's goods and services. They can temporarily fool Wall St by swinging the axe, but eventually they will run out of things to cut. The true test of any given executives ability is NOT simply pruning the rosebush. Any fool can do that. The real test is can an exec restore the pruned rosebush to it's former glory. Frazier isnt that guy.

Re: My version of 15 by 15

Soy question is how do you do it if you have a horrible bitch of a counterpart who asks you where you are everyday? Tesla you what docs are I. And then tells your manager who is on vacation and oh by the way that doc was not in that day how did you call on them? What a bitch! She is a Merck robot and I cannot stand her! I mean get a life and don't worry about me! I tell you she is trying to get me fired? Do you think she can actually do that? I really do work and get sig's on almost every call but maybe a call or two a day ya know you say yea I was there! That is part of the job. How do I get around this bitch?

It's fun to check in on you once in awhile. I'm at another Big Pharma company and the story is so (pathetically) similar. Can't quite manage your 15x15 lifestyle physically, but working on it in my own fashion and mentally am totally with you! Milk these stupid, immoral fatted-calfs for all they are worth....

And that will be among the best days in my life. Until then, I follow the 15 Guy. My second job is going well. I'll enjoy doing that full-time…eventually. I'll take tens of thousands of additional Merck dollars between now and then, however.

How much fun is it to sit in a local sports bar all day watching college hoops, entering a few calls, eating and drinking with friends and having Merck pay for all of it? That's gonna be my schedule the next few weeks of March Madness. I even have a couple of my doctor friends that join in on the fun as well.

I really love my 15x15 life style. As Flounder from Animal House said, "Oh boy, this is great!" Gotta love it!!!!!!!

Wow, I'm reading that in some areas of Merck there will no bonus and VP approval for better than a 1% raise. Really? I'm so glad I saw this coming a few years ago and began my 15x15 journey. Anybody who doesn't see this now is blind. I'm gonna just keep cashing these checks as long as possible. Keep warm everyone!
