Medical Information Specialist in Gaithersburg, MD

Job Work/Life Balance, Compensation/Benefits, Job, Security/Advancement, Management, and Job Culture is overall great, and if you are interested in healthcare definitely a great place to start your career.
Sales Representative in USA

When I started the pay was a little lower than competitors but the benefits were significantly better (coverage and personal cost). Over a few years though and the competitors caught up while the out-of-pocket costs kept increasing. They claimed to encourage a "speak up" culture but I and my colleagues watched several people express their opinions and subsequently get fired for reasons "unrelated" to their dissent. Everyone quickly learned that if you speak up or disagree, you will be looked at very closely and risk getting fired for cause. The CEO publicly said that they are focusing on biologics and oncology and after that, morale in the other divisions took a hit. If you can find a place in one of those divisions it might still be a good place to work. Good luck in your search!

Good company to work for. Well supported but the monotony of the job and lack of control of outcomes is frustrating. The industry is just getting tougher to be effective.

The work is rewarding, management is willing to support you based on your career goals, and there is a great sense of collaboration for employees depending on your group.

It takes a few seasons to get permanent if you get permanent at all the culture is terrific and the pay is fair. I like that they appreciate their employees and offer lots of assistance for you to strive in company.
