Default Strativa

So how are all the newbies who just got out of training liking their jobs so far? Is it what you thought it would be?

Nice attempt to stir the pot. Go fuck yourself and leave us alone. If you are here and you don't like it, then leave. If you have left already, then move on. We don't want you.

No part of the country is better than the rest. RP rules with an iron fist and cares NOTHING about family life. You want specifics? How about printed reports that show what time your first and last calls of the day are and what the interval is between calls. How about documenting whether or not you log in each night? How about weekly reports that show how many programs you did the previous week and how much budget money you spent? How about constant phone calls from your manager and text messages on top of that? How about weekend calls from your manager? I could go on and on. This company was founded on principals of sales management and professionalism that no longer exist. You are no longer an Area Business Manager. You are a sales rep responsible for doing everything and anything your manager asks. Raise share immediately..regardless of how many call panel changes you have been through...or you are out. Heard enough?

RP is a loud mouth, drunk, and a bully. He got fired from his last job at Cardinal Health because he couldn't produce sales and LePore wasn't there to protect him. He had to go to work for his wifes company until he found a new job. I heard that RP's knees were skimmed up by being on them for so long begging PL for a job with Par.

I am currently interviewing for a rep position with Strativa. I would like to get honest feedback from reps about the position and the company. I know this may be a lot to ask on Cafe Pharma, but thought I would give it a shot... Any honest replies would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

look if you dont know how to sell or manage a territory without holding hands with 5 other conterparts then you will fail miserably. this is fast paced, intense and a progresive company. those that joined are either succeeding or seeing the writing on the wall. we just hope the one interviewing you will see through the bullshit on your resume and capture your fony numbers you photoshopped to make you look like you were #1 from you past company.

So check this out fatboy. we dont want you here if you cant produce. and thats what it boils down to.

Be VERY careful. If you are in the Philly region....RUN AWAY. The RBD there is a nutcase who chews reps up, ruins their lives...then spits them out. Families and all. She will tell you she wants the very best for you...but the minute she can cut your legs out from under you, you will be gone. They will tell you you need to improve Nascobal numbers within your 90-day probation period or you will be gone. Trust that word. They cut me within days of my 90th. They make unrealistic goals for you to meet...12-15 calls a day....working 12-hour days.. Programs several times a day....plus 2 conference calls a week...plus 2 weekly reports...and a monthly report. If you are desperate for a job....take this one if you must. Just keep looking for a better opportunity. Sorry to be so negative....but the Philly manager just cut three people from her team...and one was second in the nation in sales. And if you are a guy...buy a cup. You'll need it. Again...sorry. These ARE the facts.

The above message is spot on. Managers will not be held accountable for the sales numbers of a so so vitamin option. They will fire you if ask too many questions or critisize upper management. Every manager is like RR.

I don't know that any other manager is as bad as RR, but look who is leading them. The pressure they are under from the superbly underqualified BH is phenomenal. And RP is no better. Just a bigger ass. That doesn't excuse RR from being a cold-harded bitch. The three she cut were good people...GOOD PEOPLE. That's what this company was founded on. It is a shame that qualified people are staying away from this company because of our severely poor management philosophy. This puppy is dying a slow death....and they still don't seem to care.

Post Re: Strativa

Think of all the money this company has wasted on training alone! In part because of below average leadership. Management is aware of this, but have too much pride to admit weaknesses and fix it. Not only have they wasted money on training but also on a number of monetary settlements to reps across the country for a miriad of reasons. It starts from directors down to dsm. Some directors are clueless on how to filter information in order to keep a sales force motivated. This inability creates a lot of collateral damage. That is why we have vaccancies all over the country. Please wake the Fuck up! Oh yeah. One more thing. We are checking boxes like a mother fucker out here. So BH, catch me if you can. Sincerely, 4 days and counting

Here is what it boils down to. You couldn't manage for any other company or you would be there. You have lost 50% of the sales force 6 months after each expansion. How much did that cost your fast paced organization? The products suck and are way under plan. Reps who are still there aren't trying to manage their territory or grow business but are faking sigs on a daily basis to make it look like they are working. Weekly fire drills are considered "fast paced" and in order to max bonus you have to be over plan for all 4 products which less than a quarter of the sales force is doing. Any of this making sense to you Mr. Tough guy. I quit this piece of shit company and am now making more money, have more vacation and not dealing with any of this horse shit anymore. So who is the smart one? Are you going to write back and tell me I couldn't hack it. Keep something in mind. When you tell people that you work for Strativa nobody knows what the hell you are talking about, have never heard of any of the drugs and don't really care. The place is not Goldman Sachs and can't be run like it is.

Is that really the best you have for me? I wrote that before half the sales force was laid off. Now the poor slobs who actually didn't get cut are quitting every week. What is the sales force down to now, 17 people? Are you still there? If you are then you know. It's all over. This is total vindication. Everything failed. We were at the Dolphin and Swan just a year ago with that lightweight, Dick Painter, telling us how bright the future is. What are you going to write back? How great management is. How great the products are. How "cutting edge" the company is. Try and put a full sentence together and tell me how wrong I am.

Here is some honest advice. Keep selling copiers until you are 24 and then try to find a nice contract job making in the mid 50's. You'll thank me later.
