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.
I would like a manager who has business acumen and skill outside of pharma. Managers don't have that in pharma, while reps are expected to.
Because inept upper management hires inept lower level (District Mgrs) who hire inept sales reps who struggle to understand the word 'contraindication" (example) because rep has a degree in 'Public relations" (example) instead of one in a medical related field. One of several reasons physicians have locked us out of the office.
