EXECUTIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SALES SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Cherry Hill, NJApril 29, 2014
Pros: most enjoyable career which involves helping physicians manage their patients illnesses.
Cons: i really enjoy the health care business.
A good company but not the same company I joined 11 years ago.
Responsible for the sale of immunomodulator to neurologists.
I learned to plan an execute accordingly.
I learned early in my career that collaboration is key to success.
The hardest part of the job is to remain focus with your objectives/goals.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to compete – more... and sell. – less

Unrewarding and a struggle. Providing no real value
Sales Representative (Former Employee), New York StateApril 21, 2014
I would not recommend this job. Product pipelines were drying up and day to day activities seemed to cause more trouble for physicians than providing value

Campus Life
Associate Director (Current Employee), East Hanover, NJMarch 31, 2014
Pros: several company holidays
Cons: not all opportunities (i.e.telecommuting on occassion), are for associates outside of "pharma" division. yes, there is "corporate separateness"
For the most part, it's a decent company with good medical benefits. However, you find that associates in the Corporate division do not have the work flexibility allowed to other associates. (Flex-time, telecommuting, etc...)

Field Based Employee (Former Employee), East Hanover, NJMarch 28, 2014
Pros: field teams
Cons: inept management, management by fear and "box checking"
Over the last few years the culture has spiraled into a very toxic, negative one. Senior management down to field based managers have shifted to micro-management and box checking. Innovation and collaboration are no longer supported. Frequent, consistent lay-offs have many on edge at all times. On the positive side, In my experience the field level – more... sales teams are excellent and knowledgeable. – less
