Do FRMs work ?

    The FRMs main goal is to get a pay check while working from home and doing nothing but watching Jerry Springer reruns. My FRM openly brags about getting a pay check and rarely leaving home.

    Surely, a company that is struggling so badly and bleeding money would realize that this is a useless and not needed position. I hope they compare 2018 fulfillment rates versus 2019 fulfillment rates and show everyone at the national sales meeting. It will prove just how incompetent the FRM’s actually are .

    Don't forget about those valuable Hospital Business Managers. They really do a lot for our bottom line.

    Right up there wasting company money are the MSL's!!! The managed care MSL's attend P&T meetings where none of our drugs or drug classes are even on the agenda. Why? I want that job. Jet out to Columbus and get my frequent flier miles. Stay at an upscale marriott and get my hotel points. Rent my car and get my car points. Eat a good meal on the company, work out and hit the meeting for an hour and fly to the next city to do it again. Could someone please investigate this? Complete waste of company money. Don't they at least have to justify whey they are spending all that money to attend meetings where our drugs are not being reviewed and no other drugs in the class are being discusses? Shameful. Simply shameful.

    When writing to all the investors like mentioned in the previous post, don’t forget to tell them what a waste of money and resources FRM‘s and KAMs are. Imagine if we eliminated those positions it would be a huge influx of cash to the company that could be used in our pipeline. Again, they produce ZERO revenue and bring absolutely nothing to the table.

    The rank and file MSLs right up to Director-level are good people. As usual, the problem is poor leadership. Anyone who questions these nonsensical decisions is labeled a problem.

    So what happens? You voice your concerns once, get smacked, learn your lesson and go through the motions they tell you to go through.

    I’m just glad that all of the HIFT being utilized after ME selling it in all my hospitals is making my HBM their bonus $. Esp after they haven’t stepped foot into one of them! Money well spent Alkermes!!! Don’t get me started on the FRM... insert eye roll.

    You have to love being one of the very few companies to have stock prices dropping while the market is at an all time high. I guess the public sees the waste this company has, including useless positions like the ones mentioned above. I can’t wait to see the ‘Improved fulfillment rates’ from 2018 to 2019 that the FRMs have generated, lol.

    This is very true. They bring nothing to the table financially. They are worse than the KAMs which is really saying something since those guys are pretty useless as well.

    Apparently you are all coming to the realization that we are all pretty useless when it comes right down to it. Every time I talk to a rep their dog is barking or kids are playing in the background. USELESS!

    That’s still more than mine works, lol. And the KAMs that were recently hired are a joke!! What was PC thinking. The one is so on over his head that all he talks about is how he used to be a manager. When he’s not discussing that, he says some other idiotic thing that makes everyone within range feel very uncomfortable. Glad to see he has such a high opinion of himself, because NOBODY else does.
