Smart, effective, yet human. Focused on success for their employees

They are rigid when necessary for the success of the work being done, but recognize when they can be flexible for the benefit of the employees without affecting the final product.

Always focuses on the needs of the patient.

Their wish to spot and promote talent

What does the leadership team need to get better at?

Leadership Reviews

Listen to employees and change

Not playing favorites among employees

The leadership team appears to be high up on Mount Olympus, disconnected from people doing the work. Little care for employees versus dollar signs. John L was very good at connecting, Dave R is much less so. However, I have confidence in our stock price.

Stop putting personal politics first and focus on product innovation and employee satisfaction

Streamlining bureaucracy in a large organization

What is the best part about your compensation package?

Compensation Reviews

Good pay when compared to the job requirements.

The pay, retirement and helath insurance benefits are very competitive.

Time off is great, especially the company wide shut downs

Awesome growth and stock options

Compensation, bonuses, and retirement packages

Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?

Compensation Reviews

Pay is terribly low. Way too much favoritism.

Underpaid compared to other pharma companies.

financially it's one of the worst multinational companies

Management plays favorites, promotes personal friends rather than based on performance

The bonuses, even at plan are pretty small. So as a newer representative with a lower salary, it is a bit disappointing to see that three months and thousands of prescriptions later, you only earned $3000 for the quarter. Give us bigger bonus opportunity or allow greater than a 7%(pres club) raise.

Management needs to stop Showing favoritism toward personal friends

We are not very efficient and bureaucracy is painful to some. The company does a good job of letting us balance and not overwork. If we get to a point where we need to compete instead of increasing price, we will need to get serious and unwind a lot of the useless checks we have added over time.

More ability for the better people to work remotely.

merge with a company with a more favorable culture

Management needs to stop showing favoritism towards personal friends

Too much work and too many levels.

Nothing wrong with the company culture, but there is outside pressure by consumers for pharmaceutical companies to lower their drug prices.

Culture of micromanagement needs to be changed

Review from Product Dept

What do you like best about your company?

Outlook Reviews

The opportunities given to me that help me to learn new skills. Also, loved that I had the freedom and management support to take on opportunities that I discovered on my own.

What would you most like to see improved at your company?

Outlook Reviews

Unfortunately, leadership seems to think that laying off people will help the company be more profitable. This seems to be the current trend for a lot of companies. I survived a couple of layoffs and the third one, I didn't. After 16 years, I went to my 13th boss. Unstable for me.
