Pfizer is making a huge mistake by having the Eliquis launch in Vegas. It's not the 80s and 90s anymore when the pharmaceutical industry is thriving. The industry is struggling now and the company thinks it's a good idea to spend that kind of money on a national launch meeting. Look at this: Cut in company cars choices and value of cars Cut in monthly budgets Cut in storage unit costs Cut in dinner program Cut in resources Cut in merit increases Cut in severance package Cut in team building, district trips, etc Yet the CEO earns a nice raise and we're sending a 2,000 to Las Vegas to launch a drug. Ridiculous!! It should be a regional launch. No one going to Vegas wants to be going there. We're not drinking the kool aid anymore and chanting We Are Pfizer at launch meetings. We're all worried about the next RIF...we know it's coming. Why invest the $$ when we're cutting every where else. It's a poor business decision. Oh...and let's have grown adults be forced to room with complete strangers for 3 nights. Awesome!!
