The most enjoyable part of my job is helping patients. I LOVE when I hear a success story that has improved someone's quality of life. Also, I really enjoy conference calls with my peers. I enjoy giving ideas/tactics that have worked for me and utilizing their ideas as well.
Company with good vision and commitment to the patient they serve

Best part of the job was people work with. Most co-workers take pride in the organization and are in it for the patient. Worst part is that at times that vision gets lost in the fire-drills of daily activities. Priorities can change on a dime without much forethought leading to poor outcomes.
Small pharmaceutical company that manufactures a great product. Management changes happen quite frequently--some good/some bad. Compensation is okay but part-time reps must compete with full-time reps for goal attainment--no breaks. Bonus is only 60% for a part-time rep if you make your goal.

no possibility of advancement; management changes quite frequently
Noven is a great company to work and get job stability, good benefits and safe place. The gray areas where Noven shows some difficulties are planning, cost analysis and professional development. A typical day at work is drive for changing in the production schedule which impact QC and Product Release generating rush samples. This situation require extra-work at no compensation in time or money for salary employees. The hardest part of the job is to dealing with lack of vision for improvement, and persistency in follow up effectiveness of changes, actions items, etc.. The previous improvement efforts were not well planned and the results are not satisfactory to the user in the daily work. The management strategies are not well understood by employees and town meetings are so slow with nothing of interest for the basic employees. The opportunities for professional grown are very reduced and the trend is to hiring people from outside rather than give opportunities to the qualified insides.
Materials Administrator (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – August 27, 2015
I enjoyed going to work each and every day. The local team and the Miami team was simply "The Team" to work for. Another special part that I enjoyed was being a part of the United Way and actually being a part of the city by volunteer work.
Training available and I did not take advantage of it.
Time difference when working with the corporate office in Miami.
A typical day would include supervision of one or two packaging lines with up to 7 operators on each line. My responsibilities included training operators, daily shift control and OEE, safety and quality of the product. Job was performed in a clean environment in accordance with FDA regulations. An important part of my job was to make sure that production goals were met or exceeded, which I did accomplished everyday.
