Accountability is crucial
Regional Business Manager/District Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXFebruary 16, 2015
Its a small company with a global mindset--run by a large organization (DPS). You must perform at a high level consistently.

Worst company ever
Specialty Markets (Current Employee) –  TexasDecember 1, 2013
Culture is horrific. Reps constantly afraid of being fired. Communication is poor and upper management leads by instilling fear in reps. Anywhere else is better than here.
Pros
none

The Worst. Terrible Culture Poor Management that goes from expansion to contraction without a care for those affected. No loyalty to employees. Avoid at all costs.

Company has progressively gone down hill
Rather not say (Former Employee) –  Marlborough MAJuly 10, 2013
This company was bought out about 3 years ago, since then it went progressively downhill. It used to be a great company to work for but has since been decimated. Company was bought by a Japanese organization and leadership is based on their business model now. There have been layoffs every year and are you will be constantly challenged to do more with less. No one seems to care anymore, they are losing great people to try and save a buck by outsourcing in all areas. In the long run it’s going to cost them dearly, definitely lacking leadership and direction. The company does still have pretty good benefits but it’s not worth the constant threat of losing your job. Some of the management is absolutely horrible. What used to be a great place to work is now a joke.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Constant restructuring and layoffs

Good place to work; as in any other pharmaceutical company, there is a lot of unrest.
Senior Medical Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Pleasanton, CAFebruary 15, 2013
Sunovion has been throught quite a few changes in the 10+ years I have been with the company. Right now, overall I feel it is a good company to work for.

Mid size pharmaceutical company with excellent products
Regional Business Manager (Current Employee) –  Wisconsin, Illinois and MichiganFebruary 12, 2013
This company had best in class type of products that appeared to late in the market place they were in to realize the sales potential they had. Non-aggressive managed care direction and understaffed sales forces also contributed to sales not reaching their full potential. Sales force was well trained by excellent sales department, quality managers on my level. My manager was excellent, knowledgeable about the industry, markets and products. My role consisted of coaching representatives to surpass quarterly sales goals. This company had the most fair quota setting system in place of any company I have worked for. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the success of the team I coached. The hardest part of the job was knowing the potential the products had when compared to the competitors, but the strategies used holding them back.

You will regret coming here
Therapeutic Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJanuary 19, 2013
This is a joke of a pharma company. Management is inept, lots of cronyism, game playing. Fear and intimidation is how the company is run because the management is immature and irresponsible. Reps are ok but work ethic overall is lacking. Pay is decent but it will not compare to what you have to put up with from management here. Quotas are unrealistic and the criteria constantly changes to ensure most don't meet their quotas. Me too products with horrible formulary coverage. Only consider working here as a last resort, you will be miserable if you have any level of intelligence as they only want "yes" people.
Pros
pay, vacation
Cons
everything else

Grew company as 1 of 157 reps to more than 1500
REGIONAL BUSINESS MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 13, 2012
Great experience and growth opportunity for professional development. Had a great time and run while there. It was very hard work but great fun. I worked long days and nights to make my numbers.

The best part of this was having ownership in the company and thus being invested in what you are doing!
Pros
autonomy and sole propriety
Cons
job security once purchased
