    I remember when the number of MDs you reported seeing was actually the number you saw!

    I remember launching Lantus. Nobody thought it would take off. They had some silly 24 hour diner theme at the launch.

    I remember douchy Lionel spinning records and the bloated blotchy Brit Chris Cann promising us that Soliqua would “profoundly change diabetes”

    I remember laughing hysterically (& out loud) in front of my RD when Jen Mills was enlightening us with all of her pearls of wisdom during a Toujeo POA.

    How about Coach Carter walking through crowd pushing people in the chest. We were waiting for somebody to clock him as he was about 5 ft 6

    I remember when Billy B completely botched the veeva rollout & then threatened to sue the consultant firm he hired to tell him how to do it. He was completely unqualified for the job before, during & after & the ops team saved his ass. He’s now been promoted like 2 more times!!! What kind of message does that send? Wonder if his wife knows about his extra work ‘hobbies’? Then again the last time 2 senior leaders participated in similar ‘hobbies’ one jumped ship REAL fast & the other still runs the salesforce.

    I remember when Scott was introduced the concept of "managed chaos". It was at that point I knew he had one foot on the platform and one foot on the train.

    I also remember the French dude who looked like Dracula at the Toujeo launch. He basically told us we were not allowed to say anything. It was at that point I realized we had crossed into a downsizing posture.

    I remember Jerry B. threatening to crack down if our result didn't pick up.

    This is an interesting thread.

    Here’s a few memories:

    -We were going to launch the GLP-1 as a stand-alone product. We trained on it and were ready to go & they called an embarrassing webcast to tell us the idea was scrapped. They never rolled it out.
    -Acomplia.
    -Actonel with Calcium.
    -Getting sued by the oncology reps when they screwed up the bonus so bad they had to take money back.
    -Afreeza
    -HIHO
    -Challenger (actually take your pick with pointless sales models)

    Good times

    You forgot Auviq. The dipshit twins that previously owned it and they trotted around at launch like a couple of tweeps. No managed care coverage and priced higher than EpiPen. The beatdowns on salesforce was unbelievable.
    The anti-depressant they launched in 2006 where they took 300 hospital plavix reps and through them into calling on shrinks.
    The In the Zone launch of Uroxatral. Again took 500 plavix reps and avapro and ambien and made them call on urology for 11 months only to throw in the towel. Again priced higher than Flomax.
    Accomplia was epic. Hired 7000 extra reps to only send them all packing when Accomplia got voted down by FDA 14-0

    Jackie Joyner Kersee embarassing motivation talk
    Dom Delouise drunk on stage
    Francois DeHeq running around the stage at MGM with his hands in the air

    Kristin Fink dressed in all leather screeching Praaaaluent!!!
    Kristin Fink yelling "Right Right Right""

    Kristin Fink yelling " let's have another round of applause for the brand team"

    Kristin Fink yelling " we got this launch right this time". Only to fail again

    Scott O - his many stupid comments . His most stupid comment ' were the most envied salesforce in the industry"

    We could go on for.hours with this.

    I remember the Toujeo Marketing team calling Lantus the enemy and wanting to blow up a Lantus pen on stage at the Toujeo launch. Absolute geniuses!!! Funny how those on the Toujeo launch have seemed to forget that ever happened and wished we’d forget it as well. Isn’t that right Shannon? LOL!!! You really cant make this up!
