    Like asking what's worse--being killed with a knife or being pushed out of a window.

    I think the better question is whether there are any companies left where working is a pleasant experience. Big, Medium, or small? Anyone??

    Sunovion has to be in the top ranks of Worst Pharmaceutical Company. No leadership, manage via fear tactics and if you don't make your quarterly goal then you'll have three more months to look for your next job cause you'll be on a PIP. Oh and in case I forgot to mention 99% to goal will not cut it. No pipeline and no one wants to sell them their product- it's an embarrassment.

    Unichem. Terrible company to work for. Pay is only 1/3rd of of industry average. Senior management employees really gets the stick for no reason whatsoever. Increments are pathetic lower side of single digits. sack threatens are quite often. Drunkards. They drink and shout at employees anything they feel like. You will be piled with 3 or 4 persons work and treated like a dog. No culture. Uncouth language being used for silly and routine matters.

    They had some good pussy in their ranks - that's for sure. And they kept their mouths shut.

    You can look at their cheap looking Viagra ads with the Bimbo and determine just what types of management are running this company.

    Totally accurate. It's like being in kindergarten. Managers are puppets and most are fools. If you have no brains or common sense, this is the place for you.

    Pharma sales jobs are dwindling. You now have the contract work which can be anywhere from 55k to 100k in salary but typically more toward the low end and we have the specialty and hospital reps at about 120k with a glut of managers (overpaid). There are some device jobs that will start at 35k and tell you how much you will make in commission. Then they work you to death and never pan out. I have had the fortune to work all sides and get out after I could no longer stand the bullshit, only to work my ass off at a "real" sales job and then to get a management job out of pharma but in science. Stay in pharma as long as you can is my recommendation. Any other sales job is going to bust your ass. You will work from 7 am to 10 pm five to six days a week for 1/2 the money and NO, no you won't one day make more than pharma. Your benefits will also suck. Pharma is like the teat of the overfed hog. Enjoy it. If you cannot, suck it up cupcake there is not much out there . . . . I make more now but with a specialized technical degree and managing a global sales force. It took me years of networking to land this good gig. Most who got out and did not land something right away are now selling cars or suits.

    Yep, by far the worst. Management just unbelievably stupid and childish. Compare it to a fraternity/ sorority. Dumb fucks that have no clue which way is up. Had one bimbo ask me what a formulary was! She gave great head but had no brains. Guys were worse. Everyone is "dude".
    Great gig though . Work 2 days a week for a six figure salary, another 20 k on the expense account, dinners with the babes, and all the tail you want ain't bad.

    He hasn't held a management position since he left Pharma - he's been a device rep for the past 11 years. I know of many stories like this where terrible managers eventually left the industry and/or returned to being a rep again. And that's a good thing!

    If we are talking about mid size biotech companies then Unchained is the worst of the industry in my opinion, it appears from Glassdoor only 20% approve of the CEO and they’re a cult like company with tons of turnover and NO respect for employees.
