    I am fortunate to have upcoming face to face interviews with both BMS & Otsuka.

    If extended offers from both, which is the better move?

    Thanks for your insights and advice!

    I think BMS is probably a mistake. Been downsizing for years.

    OTSUKA...unless you want to stock up on immodium every November with BMS during realignments..yes EVERY year. And if you have 4 pinnacle wins your BMS RBD probably won't even know you from your partner.

    How about neither company. Its selling the same drug (Abilify) with beat down mgmt tactics. BMS has violital culture and Otsuka has a cut throat jap culture who only values the almighty $. Ask yourself the question is there really a difference between a donkey and a mule?

    I agree.

    I have seen far too many reps get laid off from BMS. Otsuka is a much better organization. I won't go to BMS unless I'm desperate.

    Yes, but the Companies are FAR different. I say OTSUKA. They treat their employees well.

    I sat by the phone 6 different times while working for BMS. Micro tracking with no concern if it improved outcomes. If you can put up with the complaining from the "legacy" people who have little incite past being paid for years with no expectations of them.

    I sat by the phone too with BMS. It was awful with terrible micromanaging. OTSUKA isn't as bad but getting there.
