since the take over by Actavis, the focus on growth has gone to an extreme. Budgets are cut, salaries have dropped, bonuses are only paid out if you exceed an already inflated quota. There's little to no focus on employees and zero benefit to sticking around. A bummer.
I noticed that the Bel Air Pain territory for Depomed is now open. I wouldn't even consider interviewing for it unless the District Manager changes. She takes micro-management and crazy to a whole new level. I personally know the rep that was in the position and anyone considering should reach out to that individual before interviewing.
Lied to in interview, Micromanagement, too many conference calls, poor business model, Messed up CRM, hostile work environment, when you make above quota you frequently are not paid for the difference (others have said the same things to me so I am not the only one who feels this way).
The job paid well, and that is where the love story stops. The company is going down the tubes. Management is awful and the pipeline is consistently failing. Upper management doesn't know how to motivate or keep the right employees, and lower management has turned to extreme micromanaging to cope with the stress of territory failure. Not a happy place to work and I'll take a pay cut to get out of the company so that I can work for a place that values their employees.
Love the job just wished the territory was smaller. Cover multi states. Company is slow to release budgets. Base should be higher than $90K plus bonus of $28K. Our competitors starting base pay is $125K plus bonus and smaller territories. It can be hard on you and families.
Production facility at RTP is a 3 ring circus. In 1 ring is management using a Ouija board to run their teams and day to day operations while getting Pat on the back by their favorites. In ring 2 is a large portion of employees with "senior" in their title acting like they know better than everyone else. In ring 3 is a handful of people like me trying to do their job and navigating the politics, while watching a once great company burn.
