1. IMPORTANT: In the next few weeks, we will be upgrading the message board software. We expect minimal downtime during the upgrade, and we will attempt to complete this during low-traffic hours. We will post an exact time several days ahead of the switch.

    In preparation for the upgrade, we will be performing board maintenance, such as moving boards to Lost Civilizations where appropriate. Lost Civilizations is a category for companies that have either been dissolved or acquired. The boards serve as both an archive of the old company posts, as well as a place for former employees to reminisce or reconnect, as they will remain open for posting. We may also remove some board threads that have been inactive for several years.

    I thought I would bump this thread up again as I come back to it every once in a while. Searching desperately for a way out of the industry, but like this poster, every opportunity I have found pays almost 1/2 of what I am making now. However, the toll of the constant stress and pressure we are under these days is sometimes just too much. Any ideas for someone with over 20 years of sales, including B2B, ortho and pharma? I could suck it up and get my MBA and have my current company pay for it but that would mean at least 3 more years here.
    Looking for some success stories for those who escaped...

    Construction sales pays better once you get in and build up a network. The people are more real.

    If you are into your 40s, and still working in medical/pharmaceutical sales, you are truly a sucker.
