Co-workers were friendly

Executive Sales Specialist (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – July 10, 2018
Patient focused corporation that has a diverse culture and follows the science of medical needs. Management values employee feedback and continuously tries to make adjustments and improvements to make our work most efficient.
The most difficult part of the job is frustration with things we cannot control, i.e. insurance coverage. The company does its best to offer coupons and vouchers to help patients get the medicines most appropriate for their disease state.
