    The least respected and least qualified guy is now running the company. We are all doomed.

    Exactly! Just goes to show you that who you suck up to is more important than skills and experience. What experience does he have in sales? A year or two as a rep period! The only thing he can sell is himself! He is an arrogant, self centered, unqualified, egotistical jerk who has surrounded himself with friends who stroke his ego and who think everything he says is brilliant. His promotion doesn't say much about the people who made the decision either.

    Let's not kid ourselves we are all a job. Think of the products that we sell and where are we going to go and make the kind of money we do in Pharma. All the derm companies are being bought up. Frankly some of the reps at this company that haven't sold outside of derm are pretty dumb, can't even pass a promius test. DH in CT need I say more! So stop complaining we have it good!

    You are correct my friend! This promotion is embarrassing for this company. He is not a leader of any kind he only cares about himself. That's why no one respects him. They just suck up to further their own agenda. Its a sad day at Promius.

    Please leave RD alone. He is the most tenured guy here. He knows our company and our products. In his own way, I do think he cares about the company and how we do. Granted, he is not by any means a sales person, but he did carry a bag for a short time. He's not stupid like some that they could have brought into that position from the outside. How long did DA last in that job, a couple of months? Better we have a person that has been here since the beginning than a newbie that doesn't know us from Adam. Besides, India will be calling all the shots anyway. I say, GO RD!!!!!! Make us proud!

    Thanks Rob D for the response. The fact that you are running this company is another reason that it is a sinking ship!

    Typical quote from one of his minions who suck up to him every day. He doesn't care about this company he only cares about himself. The last thing he will do is make us proud.

    I am not one of RD's minions as another poster was accused of being. But, I say give him a chance. He is still here with us while others who were in management positions have left. A new person was brought in and that did not work. RD has been here since the start and knows our business. Now it is either sink or swim for him. Do your best in the field everyday and let's all make this company great. He deserves a chance like anyone else. I admit that I am not his biggest fan either, but I love this company and want it to succeed. So I will be keeping an open mind and letting RD show us what he can do. Hopefully he will prove us skeptics all wrong.

    The fact that they gave him the job means that India is done with this company. My guess is that our products are now up for sale like all the other small companies that have been sold, Triax, Graceway etc. If they really wanted our company to grow into a player in the derm marker they would have brought in a experienced professional who had the ability to make this company work.

    Good point. What experienced senior executive would take a job here working for the Indians unless they were unemployed and in desperate need of a job? Nobody in their right mind would leave a good job to come here. The appointment of RD is the easy way out.

    Well said. We had experienced senior executives and they all left. Need I say more. I guess we shall see what the future holds. But I am getting my resume updated as a precaution.

    DA left because he could see what a joke this company is. They proved him right by putting RD in his place. Ridiculous! He's never even been a manager. He's managed the marketing "department"-an intern and ES. Great job! So impressive.

    First off it is DH not DA. Second, he was not even here long enough to make an impact. The people that started the company, the ones that really cared about the people and actually hired alomost all of us, they are the ones that left. And can you really blame them? One can only take so much from an overseas management team that doesn't know squat about the branded dermatology business in the US. If you bang your head against a brick wall long enough, you are bound to get a major head ache. I think that's what happened to the original management team. Except for RD and his side-kick MD that is. Why whould they care. RD is the golden child and the rest just go along and keep kissing his ass. Oh well, this is the hand we were dealt and we will just have to see how it pans out. At least we have mostly good people in the field even if RD and his cronies may not think so. Best of luck to all of my fellow sales reps.

    Rumor is that they are trying to bring in a new head of marketing. Sounds like they are investing in our company if they are.

    A new head of marketing. I seriously doubt that. Maybe a new Director of Marketing to replace RD. But he is now Head, Sales and Marketing. So he runs the show on both sides. Wonder why he didn't get a VP title. That just seems a little weird to me. Isn't that what he really is doing? Maybe the Indians don't have to pay him as much if they call him "Head".
