drugs in pipeline seem cool, but the managers are the same types everywhere else. big pharma, constantly claiming they arent. kind of hard to shake of 20 years at Bohringle and claim you arent big pharma....sorry kirk.

Lately, their actions speak so loudly, I can barely hear their words. Thought things were looking better when bought by Kadmon but 3RP folks are still running the show.... into the ground. Too bad.

Banghead Re: Kadmon

so true. insane emails from abms about the number of calls being made and being recorded daily? checking how many time reps log in to inview? asking for itemized receipts all of the sudden, when for years it was never needed?

and these are just the examples from this week...

and if you hear anything about a hospital anitbiotic that you will be getting in a month or two....thats being sold by a contract sales team. you will never touch it.

oh and at the managers meeting a lot of discussion about people making too much money in base salary...seems like a nice way to spend a meeting. wtf?

Cool Re: Kadmon

if you are currently selling ribapak for $100k+ base salary consider yourself the luckiest person in the world. of course it wont last forever, because they can get people for half that amount but take it while its good.

its just a place to lay your head and steal checks each week. every single person i talk to here just laughs at this place but is grateful to be so overpaid.

this is why companies are beginning to hire msl's and not sales reps - keep it up and the sales function in pharma will be gone

isn't one of the managers a nurse - she was part of the clan that came over as a unit

Just joined Kadmon and got back from my first NSM. Overall, it was pretty good. Heard there was some drama at meeting involving some guy named Blake. Anyone have any info? Is it true that he has a mugshot online? How does he still have a job after causing a problem at the meeting and being arrested? Are these the kind of people Kadmon hires?

i heard the rep wanted to work in managed access so took a position at specialty pharma - is this true - heard they could not fill trenton territory - why is this - can you be more specific - appears there is no moving up in the company - are you all not afraid of the background of the founder of the company....................the pipeline looks good - is it? thanks for any input.....

DB isnt bad i hear...shes pretty typical of most managers. most people on her team dont seem to mind working with her. im at HQ so its kind of hard for me to really tell. but thats my impression.

Met her - wasn't impressed. A primary care manager masquerading as a specialist.

Most of us started in PC, I have worked PC, specialty and biotech sales and I find DMs are pretty much the same across the board.
The sales expectations are not.

Banghead Re: Kadmon

This is def a PC product....and a generic at that. 90% of the managers and reps here couldn't even give you the dosing of a DAA or stopping rule. CP used to make sure we all knew the data inside and out, but now he just works with EH and can care less. If you cant see that HCV is NOT a part of Kadmons future...you must be blind.

Oncology will be here down the road....way down the road. However, most of us will not be able to get those highly technical sales jobs bc we sell (sell is a strong word) ribapak.

sorry...i thought they were layed off...turns out they were fired. just in case that wasnt clear in Brad P. email today. we have had tons of reps leave and never once have they ever sent an email saying they were hiring in a specific area...guess this is the way mgt wants to "share" that they canned three people.

In my opinion, everything will improve as long I can continue to see the words "Good Selling" at the end of each and every email. So motivational, isn't it? Brilliant! Where does that kind of talent in leadership come from?

soooooooooo.............what are the chances that anyone here will be selling a cancer drug for kadmon in 3-4 years? i say 0%. no one on this sales team has what it takes. sure you may have sold infergen, but this is not hep c. oncology is the hardest clinical sell out there and its ALL about current relationships and knowledge. sorry to say it, but get out or stay and collect 12 weeks of severance upon termination in december

Jester Re: Kadmon

Agreed! This company is going down.... The management here sucks! Poor business decisions have been made. No oncology drugs will be approved for at least 5 years. This is the lie they sell! Stay far away from this sinking ship! I'll be givinig notice after my home study period. Might as well milk it while I can.

Hi its me again, the totally bored out of my mind ribapak rep! The only thing this places needs less than reps are managers...on a serious note...what does an ABM do here to make the compnay money? They are a cost strain on an already poor company. The 2 days a month my manager rides with me is a joke and the other 4 weeks of the month I do whatever I want and that is NOT visit offices and sell RP.

I don't think they would do layoffs over a conference call. i bet it's just ron letting us know that we need to stay in the field all day. i bet there is nothing new or exciting.

maybe a realignment of territories or something too.

Sorry folks....layoffs are 100% happening. I'm an ABM and know for a fact. No one feels good about it, it's always a tough thing. But business is business, and it will always be that way. Good luck to those that are let go.
