Lost it's way fast - no chance of getting it back!
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Deerfield, IL – September 20, 2017
As a sales representative, the daily responsibilities are to call on medical professionals (MD's, PA's, APRN,s, etc) at these practitioners offices to discuss features and benefits of the products. Typically, I'd call on about 10-15 of these prescribers per day (average). The goal is to provide these prescribers with as much information (positive & negative) as possible, so they can make the appropriate decision on what product to give their patients.
I enjoyed working with these prescribers because I believed that Takeda had some really efficacious & safe products that could benefit patients. However, over time, things changed at Takeda and management somehow abandoned the "keeping the patient at the forefront" philosophy. My previous statement would be heavily debated by management at Takeda because it sounds completely ridiculous that a pharmaceutical company would not operate under that philosophy. Unfortunately, I've heard it first hand at company meetings and I've also seen it first hand in the field with managers. The most important thing was getting prescriptions, period!
