Territory Business Manager II (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 28, 2018
Everything in my career was fine with Purdue. I had a great manager, territory, and had just been promoted. The decision by the board to cease the promotion of the opioids in the portfolio (strictly a business decision) led to a major downsizing. C'est la vie.

Company is under siege due to opiod crisis. Management doesn't know how to downsize as they promise people it is over and then continue to announce layoffs. Everyone is petrified and can't do their jobs effectively.
Territory Business Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – April 23, 2018
No pipeline, no future. I would not recommend anyone work for this company. There is no long term plans and the future looks bleak. They have had multiple rounds of layoffs over the past year and more to come.
TERRITORY BUSINESS MANAGER II (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 16, 2018
A typical day of work would be to go visit assigned customers throughout the territory and discuss appropriate patient types for the products I was selling. Also worked with staff and provided resources for patient education or formulary concerns.

Territory Business Manager (Current Employee) – USA – March 6, 2018
Purdue could be so much more, but poor decisions and years of reliance on one product to pay the bills have put the company on shaky ground. The only product being promoted now is a late-to-market me too (the money maker isn't even promoted now). Upper sales management reads too many books on how to manage instead of leading. Territory Business Manager is a joke of a title, as district managers often live to micromanage and are with reps far too often. No rhyme or reason as to how job performance played into a recent layoff, as recent award winners were let go while average to marginal representatives were kept.
Good pay; cannot complain about this aspect.
lack of management accountability, no vision by upper management
IT Lead (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – March 4, 2018
Aside from the political lightning rod that the company is, it started off really well, with a collaborative IT department where everyone was friendly and helpful. But as the economic landscape has changed, some people started shifting focus to themselves, and trying to protect what they had. Groups became silo'ed and pressure was put on the remaining people to accomplish tasks and projects at expedited timelines, regardless of conflicting priorities, workloads or manpower. The company itself offers great benefits, both in terms of healthcare as well as work/life balance. And it pays well too. But for the IT department, the focus is to cut, cut, and cut, outsourcing as much as possible. Being on the inside, the outsourced vendor is no where near as good as the FTEs, and it shows - all other end users I speak with about it tell me as much. If you are not looking to join the IT department, don't expect even moderate support quality; expect lower thresholds.
high salary, good benefits, telecommuting available, week between Cristmas and New Year's is a company holiday
political lightning rod, financial instability, poor management, lack of collaborating environment
Territory Business Manager (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – February 26, 2018
I was a part of an excellent team as well as a great manager who knew how to encourage good work life balance. The culture of the company was applicable always stressing the importance of hard work so that you could have a good quality of life.
Great place to work, great people always make the difference.
Territory Business Manager (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 7, 2017
Great place to work. Great local and regional managers. The company has good direction and goals. The company is agile and adaptable with changing market conditions. There is a positive culture of success, good collaboration and willingness to be successful.
Purdue continues to create an opiate epidemic worldwide by launching non abuse detterent formulations outside the US via Mudi Pharma, even though they manufacture Oxycontin in an abuse deterrent formulation that was substituted in the US in 2010.
A typical day at work included entering literature/sample orders the SAP system and follow up to be sure the person received the correct material. In general, the colleagues were pleasant and easy to work with. I learned Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access. I became more accustomed/comfortable and proficient in the Microsoft suite of programs.
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – September 3, 2017
I have no comments on the current company or management staff. When I worked there a long time ago. It was great. Excellent management and fair compensation. The shameful abuse of the good products by suspect individuals ruined a good thing.
Still, keeps the old culture of corporate America. Traditional, people dress professional and casual Fridays. After Memorial day till Labor Day. Fridays off after lunch (12:01 PM) One week off after Xmas. Easy pass and yet can be rush-rush when timelines and projects date lines need assistance., Smart people.
Still keeps the old corporate culture of the past...very nice
