Clinical Study Associate (Former Employee) –  Edison, NJAugust 23, 2017
As a contractor you are not treated as an employee just a number. Did not enjoy working here no room for advancement, even with experience. No mentors given to help you. People are overloaded with work and wearing many hats without praise.
Pros
compensation
Cons
non-flexible, just a number, not valued

Once a Great Place
Specialty Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Knoxville, TNAugust 2, 2017
Averaging about one layoff every year now. Territories restructured even more often. No formulary wins in years. Typical pharma day in field with 8-10 calls required. Both managers I have had have been good. Bonus payouts are pretty much below par due to unbelievably high goals. When you produce well they reward you by increasing your goals to where you don't make a good bonus again. Products are good but managed car is difficult. Health coverage is very good.
Pros
Good Managers and health coverage
Cons
Unabtainable Goals, several recent layoffs

Daiichi Sankyo was a good place to work. The company supplied you with ample resources to be productive in your sales territories. Most members of upper management were accessible.

Unreliable leadership
Specialty District Manager (Former Employee) –  Sioux Falls, SDApril 4, 2017
The uppermost management doesn't seem to understand the US pharmaceutical industry and therefore is not prepared for the "unexpected". Every year they have to adjust the sales force size, which causes talented people to leave and others to lose focus.
Pros
Great colleagues and immediate managers.
Cons
Lack of direction and any security.

Very poor organization with low morale and trust levels among the entire field teams and sales leadership. Very low compensation compared to industry. Many are looking to leave as the pipeline is very weak / little potential.
