Managers play favorites. Selling ways is a subjective. You can have a bad manager who spends 1/2 a day with you and will write all the things they didn't see in 2 hours over breakfast talking about themselves.
My manager is unfair, creates a horrible work environment and culture of in-fighting and lack of teamwork, upper management lacks the ability to explain a clear vision for the future and a why behind our goals.
I am very disappointed with the management and how they were not supportive to an individual who is on a medical leave.
I understand it is all about business and how business comes first but being supportive will give a personnel like myself a sense of loyalty and dedication to the company; especially in pharmaceutical industry. I guess this is what everybody says. "You live and You learn." I spoke to my parents who were Ivy league graduate with multiple master. To get their perspective and they have stated it is what it is.
Management Lies, They do not treat Reps good Micro Manage. DBM critical and a liar. Plays favorites in the district. Makes promises and doesn't come thru. Getting rid of good reps because company wants to trim down sales staff without laying off so they finds reasons to get rid of you. Company keeps charging more money for products and this pisses off Dr.s. Feel threatened and scared everyday. Afraid to say anything because of retaliation. The company used to be a great place to work. Not anymore. People leaving right to left. Discrimination occurs. Don't work here unless you want a job from hell.
Have tried to get promoted/moved into another division for years. Have good evals, but company culture is very incestuous(?) when comes to jobs. Would rather hire a mgrs. spouse/child/cousin than a current employee for a position.
Shire leadership has archaic ideas for growing business. Metrics, call averages, impulsive decisions. They bought some bio-techs (I was at one of them) and they have no idea how and why biological are different than pills/eye drops.
