    I worked at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many avenues for advancement

    Cons

    Too volatile of an industry. I achieved 54% market share, and was let go without warning or reason, due to territory restructuring. Also, training was ill structured for people who are new to pharmaceutical sales.

      I have been working at AstraZeneca full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Good company, some real bad mangers in tough to fill geographies

      Cons

      Lower salaries, bonus getting harder to make. Lots of fuzzy

      Advice to Management

      Some micro management issues killing sales/reps...time consuming trackers tracking information already being captured and tracked by the database. Many great leaders but some really poor ones in geographies that are tough to fill.
