    What are your thoughts about leaving a pharma job to come to Exact Sciences? Do you get a co car or car allowance? If car allowance, how much do you get? How are your medical benefits? Are the benefits expensive?

    Please share anything and everything--Good and bad!!

    stop....stay where you are at as you will regret joining Exact. It is a cesspool of managers and people who are either relatives or past butt buddies of someone on the executive level. It is a NIGHTMARE! You will hate your professional life every day that you work for them. Fair warning. You asked for the truth.

    Happy employees (the majority who are currently employed) don’t post on this site. You’ll find the same five disgruntled and miserable posters. Connect with people on LinkedIN and find out from them. Don’t believe anything on this site.

    There must be something positive here, right? If So, please share!!

    Co car or car allowance?

    Thanks

    $500 a month car allowance.

    It is not a bad place if you are entry level or mid-twenties. Exact is not a place for the ambitious or those who value talent / intelligence over corporate politics. That being said, may of the sales territories achieve quota with minimal work by the rep, so if you're looking for an easy paycheck it is not a bad option.

    100% true.

    And I will say that if the only way you can find this type of info is to post on Cafepharma, you may want to stay in Pharma.

    The truth is it’s the same thing as Pharma. It’s run like a big pharma company. The VP of sales brought in her big pharma buddies to the senior sales leadership team and it feels like working for big pharma. The culture is toxic and does not value innovative thinkers. If you don’t drink every cup of Koolaid they serve you will be managed out. The benefits are subpar. The health insurance premiums are sky high and hardly anyone is in network if you live outside of Wisconsin.

    It would be interesting to know how many field reps and managers have been here and then left. I know a whole region that has completely turned over and many others that have very few, if any original reps. The people who are still here are the ones that are the favorites...period. The poster who said that happy reps don't post here and most are happy... that is complete bs. Unhappy employees and former employees post here because they want to WARN sales reps form coming here. The management is toxic, horrific and childish. On the outside, it seems like a really cool place to work...small, great technology diagnostic product, good future, one product...but then you realize that they employed sales ops from Merck and the picture should become clear. This is a small diagnostic company with big pharma management.

    The reason no one should work here is Cologuard sucks! I have spoken to over 100 GI doctors that state almost every test is false positive. They received a positive form Exact, perform the colonoscopy and find nothing. Cologuard was approved by the FDA on a trial basis for 5 years. Tehy have to submit data each year to the FDA to prove the test works. In 2 years this test will be off the market as the biggest scam every committed. It is nothing more than a simple fecal dressed up to collect $500+ per test!

    You are a moron and a complete waste of life!!! There is no such thing a sending data to FDA every year...you must be a salesperson of an inferior FIT or FOBT test, who has no business hocking their wares!!! Beat it back to swamp Shrek!!

    What part of the country is all this turn over happening in? I can not think of one rep who has left out of the 30-40 I personally know in the last two years.

    Bitter Bob or Betty I guess...

    You’re kidding, right?

    Maybe if you are a rep in Florida or Texas, there may be low turnover.

    The entire Cali teams have turned over. Same with New York City.

    These are highly entertaining to read. There is a lot of truth to both sides, good and bad. But everyone forgets, if you think the grass is greener elsewhere, think again. Almost Never is, and usually worse. They all ran about the same with same types of people with same background's.

    When your own grass turns brown, it's usually greener on the other side.

    Check your joint FDA/CMS approval. You have a 5 year approval and must submit data yearly to both FDA and CMS on the products efficacy. The approval is up in 2020! Cologuard is the inferior FIT or FOBT test you idiot. Ask 90% of the doctors how awful the test is. Your company us ripping off CMS and will be bankrupt when your data proves your test is shitty (pun intended)
