Managers ride with you on average of 25% of your sales time (4days a month). They use an extensive matrix to evaluate you that isn't designed to help develop you but to document any and all perceived inadequacies subjectively to your manager's need to appear valuable. Everything is about HR, documentation, follow up and evaluations. Territories are 4-5 hours wide and most require multiple overnights each month. Bonus is largely unattainable as goals are impossible given managed care access and marketing strategies. STAY FAR AWAY IF YOU VALUE YOUR CAREER AS A PHARMA REP.
The company treats you like dirt. Managements attitude towards people on the first floor is obvious discust. I have never felt so unappreciated in my life. They crowd you in one giant noisy room. The moral is terrible. 90% are temps that they never hire. Oh but there are free snacks. That should make up for the slave wages they pay. One more thing, they don't seem to like women to be promoted. They bring in middle age men to be in charge and demote women who are supervisors. They lay off/get rid of older fulltime employees and bring in more temps. If you want to develop stress related illnesses and you really don't need a competitive salary then this is the place for you.
Challenging work and, making a difference in lives of patients.I dont love it because individual managers are too focused on hitting their bonus targets, which drives short term wins, but strategic failures
Always on egg shells with DM who thinks she knows everything but when you ask her a question she never has an appropriate answer. Thinks b/c she is a minority and a manager that she is better than her team. Makes up lies in field contact reports. Where is this integrity in that? If you are older and non-minority she gets rid of you and hires younger, African American.
MS Division is dying, 27 year old drug. Absolutely the worst RSM I have ever worked for. This manager is a loafer and treats reps, especially female reps, disrespectfully. Managed by fear and intimidation.
