Sales Representative in Reston, VA
on August 31, 2017
I really enjoyed pharmaceutical sales. The perks and training were amazing and they took great care of their employees. I learned a lot about the medical industry and enjoyed working closely with the Doctors in my territory. I became a trusted resource for them and got to know most of them on a personal level as well. The hardest part of the job was getting past the gate keepers but I quickly learned how to charm them.

Great pay and opportunity for overtime Teamwork makes up for some training. Hard to miss family life because of overtime Shift jobs are difficult to balance. Turnover of management can also create a work environment that is stressful. People seem to be under stress which makes everyone else to feel the same way.

Was a fair place to work pre pandemic. Like most corporate pharma jobs, some depts offer good work life balance, others that were deadline oriented, did not.

They are not inclusive of all employees, although they will push diversity and inclusion all the time. Employees need to know their state and federal rights to work there. They will push the limit.

I interviewed for a consultant job at Merck. I feel the interviews for consultant jobs are more casual than the normal corporate interview.
