    Is this company that bad? The pay is great, and you sell in the orphan space. Is the new territory a black hole?

    These boards are troubling for one reason. I am a Neurology employee and have been for 8 months or so. I LOVE ALEXION. It’s a great place and I’m so happy (and fortunate) to be here.

    We get compensated more than fair, and our product makes a difference in patients lives. It’s a challenging role, as we are trying to change the way a disease has been treated for 60 years, so if you want a cake walk then don’t come here. But if you want a challenge with GREAT benefits and a GREAT culture then you can’t go wrong coming here. Best of luck to you in the interview process.

    Definitely take the advice of somebody who has been at the company for 8 months, LOL.

    It’s losers like you that the company restructured to get it right. Somehow they missed getting rid of you. Or didn’t they? Alexion is awesome.

    I also applied for the position in Chicago and did not hear back. I am currently selling in the orphan biologic neurology space. I also live in the norther suburbs as the position requested. Does anyone know if the position was pulled and not going to be filled?

    Thank you

    The intensity and number of hours you will work will not equate to anything better than the average biotech start up at $/hour invested.
    It’s all about your manager. If he/she “gets it” and allows you some space to grow, succeed and at times stumble and recover... you may stay a while. If your manager smothers you, and most do!, 2 years will become an eternity.

    The stock has taken a beating. So the “equity pull” should be offset by $160K-$170K on RAM base if you’re wise. (Trust me. They’ve got the dough.)

    I would hunt down as many current and former Alexites as possible. Do yo’ due diligence. ;)

    Good luck. And remember... it’s a career, not a religion. Do not sign the billion year contract when you get to initial training.

    Will they do cash sign on bonuses or is it stock only? Casje is preferred and the last company I went with gave me both. Just curious because cash dign on may make the devision for me if they are in range on salary.

    They only do cash sign-ons for people with a current version of spellcheck.

    Well when you used to be a sr regional manager and you decide you dont want to travel 4 days a week, the negotiated rate was 162k. That was only a 55k pay cut to demote yourself at new biotech company. I'm actually happy where I am, but was reached out to by a recruiter for the RAM role and was told base could go up to 170k for qualified candidates. Sounds like it's not worth the 8k raise and headache to join at this point.
