Found this by googling. They put doctors on e-detailing. What will they think of next?? They call them physician advisors or something. Looks like they're screwing them over. Makes you feel lucky to be a field rep. I'd stay a mile away from this company! "Pros -Medical degree and an American accent is all you need to get hired. -Previous job experience is not necessary. -You can leave your job temporarily and get rehired easily, revolving door. -Flexible schedules. Cons - Job candidates are misled and not given a clear idea of what the job entails when hired. -Micromanagement on a microscopic level. Employees are watched, recorded, assessed and measured continually in an unfair manner. -Call center atmosphere, no cell-phones, no talking and you have to ask permission for a bathroom break. -Zero chance for job growth or opportunities, employees are treated as transients. - Extremely passive/aggressive and hostile work environment. Management acts fake and they freely lie. -Office gossip and unprofessional behavior is rampant. -Unhealthy competition, jealousy and backstabbing is the norm here. The walls have ears. -Physicians are expected to talk like pharmaceutical sales reps. Not allowed to speak like a real physician and speak off-label or off the script. -Company has questionable ethical practices, will do anything to make a buck. -Projects seem to not have no clear direction/plan. -Nature of the work is VERY monotonous and extremely illogical. Calling 100s of doctor's offices everyday??? They don't want to talk to you!! -Department specific strict rules are enforced like a prison environment. Other dept. do not follow the same rules. -The most strict dress code than anywhere else in the company. -It is a fear-driven machine. Submission is the only way an employee will survive here. This leads to perpetual cynicism towards management. -Management puts unreasonable expectations on the Physicians. Their goals for numbers are unreachable and unrealistic. -The only one motivation to do the work is for FEAR of losing your job. -Teamwork is clearly discouraged, employees are not even allowed to interact with one another. Thinking like an individual and feedback is also ignored. -Physicians are exploited according to their individual talents. -Physicians are not given opportunities for full time positions. That = no employee benefits as well. All other positions throughout the company are offered benefits and career promotions. -Extremely high turnover rate, employer takes full advantage of a bad job market and an overflowing pool of candidates desperate for a paycheck. They USE people with no mercy till they burnout and can’t take it anymore. -Management shows clear favoritism towards certain employees. Their requests are the only ones fulfilled. -A very select few are chosen for important projects like "video-detail" (inbound calls). The rest are relegated to "phone-detail" (outbound calls) with limited opportunity to advance. Very unfair. -Certain employees are overloaded with work but the low part-time salary still applies. -Job requires a medical degree but the pay as that of an associate degree salary. The salary is nowhere near fair competitive compensation for doctorate degree holders. -There is no such thing as bonuses or commission here, you are selling for free! The company reaps the profits. -Training is extremely inadequate, employees rely on educational background to train themselves. There is no one with any kind of science or pharmacy background. They are just salespeople. -Zero communication, information sharing and knowledge with management. -No warnings about important changes or updates in a timely manner. Many employees kept in the dark. -Individuals in management not looking to change methodology and real business growth. They seem more interested in keeping their jobs and getting a fat paycheck above all else. -Spontaneous massive layoffs can occur at anytime with no warning. -Projects are set up for failure by salespeople who deliver false promises. When things tank the blame game begins. -Other employees in this company with less qualifications make much more money. -Employees from other departments are extremely unfriendly. -ALL executive decisions are made to benefit the company at the expense of putting employees at a disadvantage. -Many people in management obtain position purely because of tenure and influence vs. real qualifications, ability, talent and experience. None of these people have done the job of physician advisor and know how to do the job. -Senior management looks down on the Physicians in a condescending manner. -Job offers no resume credibility for a future medical career. -Very limited recognition and praise. -Very incompetent management on various levels. Many managers are totally detached from the department and just read the numbers delivering ignorant criticism. Who is Steve Simcox?? I dare him to spend a day in this department. - The most relieving day is the day you leave this job. There is much, much more to list but this list is already exhaustive and meant to give disclosure to Physicians who may be considering a position here. You have been warned. Advice to Senior Management -The entire company needs to change management top to bottom. In terms of the Physician department it needs a total revamp in the way it approaches it's projects. Calling medical offices while physicians are attending to patients is a formula that Medimedia knows doesn't work and they are not willing to change. As a fellow physician you don't want to annoy a fellow physician, it's not right. -The work environment makes it a place that makes you daydream about where you actually want to be someday. And that place is not MediMedia"
