pharma sales is just a higher paying dead end job. It's no more relevant or purposeful than working at Taco Bell. And that may be an insult to Taco Bell. I am actually kept from achieving sales goals by metrics that are completely divorced from reality. If making burritos paid as much I would do it because it would be less depressing. Pharma needs a new idea. My company needs new leadership. And about half of the reps need to re-released into the wild.
I give it a 3 only because the company is so dysfunctional and my boss is so checked out that no one knows what anyone else does all day long. I could go on a 2 week vacation and honestly do not think anyone would know I was gone. If not for this I would give it a 1.
Sanofi sucks. They blame every failure on the field. They have this magical thought that if we meet our reach and frequency goals, the money will pour in. Not true duh. Shitty products, shitty coverage, shitty launch tactics
Management at all levels are inept. They are blind to the realities of the marketplace. They are deaf to the crys of the field to the needs of the workers on the ground that are continually asking for assistance in their efforts.
Because inept upper management hires inept lower level (District Mgrs) who hire inept sales reps who struggle to understand the word 'contraindication" (example) because rep has a degree in 'Public relations" (example) instead of one in a medical related field. One of several reasons physicians have locked us out of the office.
