Lightbulb Serious Job Questions

I'm currently in talks over a position w MTM/Roche. I'm a little confused as to what to expect and was hoping someone on the inside or outside field force could help me out.

What have you heard in terms of acquiring MTM and the new P16 test? (who is going to sell it, etc...)
I know Ventana has its own sales force...have you heard you are getting it or is nothing changing?

I have a decent job however this does sound interesting to me with some long term benefits. Do not want to go into this eyes closed

Serious Replies only please!!

How far are you along with the talks?
What have they informed you on regarding the position?
What geography is the position covering?


This would help...

OP Here,

The second post was not from me. Was already told what the salary range would be. I'm more interested in what the structure of the sales force is going to look like once the two companies combine. From what I've been told I would be selling the P16 test.
-What do ventana reps carry?
-Have they mentioned any changes?
-How many reps are you nationally?

Any of this info would be greatly appreciated

Didn't give a salary range.

Was more curious about the structure of the field force, what you carry and what you've heard about any changes w/ the new test coming in from mtm

Are you kidding, you are considering a job with mtm labs...look at the big picture, dumb a#@. You are selling one product that is used at the sole descretion of the pathologist. Good product but Ventana sells a whole line of good products and reagents. Do you really think that Ventana will keep you on after the full integration. KS states, "We are a clinical sales force, Ventana cant sell like we can." I have news for you Kevin, Ventana has a good sales force and they can sell, I would not bite the hand that feeds you. I interviewed with mtm labs and ran for the hills once I spoke to my Ventana and Roche friends. Enjoy the one year guarantee and you future unemployment.

No, it's only because you couldn't get a position with the company. We are unique!

Ventana currently recruitinng a bunch of morons and failures as Medical directors. These loosers know neither science nor business. They soon drown this company with their unscientific methods. They eataway monies as long as they can then move on to the next victim. With this kind of leadership and management practices in American Biotech if continues further in recruiting scientific and technical personnel, soon talents go into drain and ultimately we reach to Dark ages again atleast in for Botech sector within next 10 - 15 years.

This gentleman you hired has delusions that he can quantify optical illusions and believes that these illusions can predict the cancer treatment outcomes- a kind of modern day soothsayer. For the best description such charecters you must read 'Asterix and the Soothsayer by Albert Uderzo and Goscinny'.

The use of chemotherapy sensitivity and resistance assays to select chemotherapeutic agents for individual patients is not recommended outside of the clinical trial setting. Oncologists should make chemotherapy treatment recommendations on the basis of published reports of clinical trials and a patient's health status and treatment preferences."

This guy from northeast u recently hired helped to melt $120 millions like butter but poured it in drain in 8 years . He told stories like a soothsayer, hurt feelings of the several research scientists when questioned about his scientific concepts and his integrity. On the top of it your company recent press release says he was hiresd because same old stories he told in northeast.

Keep drinking the cool-aid Jim Jones....We are unique, Ventana cant cell like me...idiot. Mark my words, reps will be pulled in as specialists working under the regional managers, you will have to produce double digit growth which you wont be able to do, KS will be fired and Chris will take on a larger position in Tuscon. Oh, by the way....class one IVD, can you say ....titration 1:50......dumb ass. Can you also say...E6/E7......double dumb ass.....

so sorry p16......elevated levels of p16 in a tumor were not especially informative on their own, though they did correspond to better oropharyngeal cancer survival when found together with positive blood tests for E6 and E7. From the journal Cancer Research

P16- Does it really make any significant difference in diagnosis and management of pharyngeal malignancies. Of course u can publish a paper with the data, however therapeutic approaches currently available are same old ones did not change much for past 20 or more years.
