Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Regina, SK – June 7, 2013
Pros: great people and perks
Cons: very little work load
A typical day at work included data entry, assisting where needing and covering reception (once a week). I worked with some very nice people, who made everyday fun. The hardest part of my job was the fact that I didn't have much work to do, my work was project based but my manager didn't always get me a project to do right away. The most enjoyable was – more... the community of people there, the company treated everyone well, including fishing trips, golfing days, bbqs and other team building activities.
The first year at Bayer I was in a different department where I was busier, it included maintaining customer data bases where it be updating information, adding a new customer or deleting a customer. I set up pricing for products, as well as tracked reports and assisted the Customer Service Reps with projects. – less
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – June 11, 2012
Pros: glad to be gone from there.
Cons: wasn't gone soon enough!
Not very well organized - subsidiary company that I worked for was a very successful and a great company with respect for their employees. Since Bayer took over and swallowed up the little company, the 'blue chip' HUGE international imposed their corporate 'culture' on the little company that could, and in the process killed all originality and everything – more... good that once existed at very successful small company. – less

Quality Lab Technician (Former Employee), Goose Creek, SC – August 20, 2014
Pros: great place to work
Cons: plant closed
A typical day was productive. I worked in a team environment where we test the quality of our product and inspected each product that came off the machine for deficiency's. I keep record of product testing, communicated by email, phone, or face to face with issues that needed to be address. I learned how to use excel for making graphs for products we – more... tested. I learned how to do customer complaint testing. Management was great, if you had an idea to make the process more time efficient there was an open door policy. My co-workers worked hard and we all had the same agenda to be productive. The hardest part of the job was the stress strain test. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the team and management. – less
1)A pharmaceutical Rep, or Medical Representative in the Pakistan starts reviewing his call plan for the day (which should include doctors to be called on for product promotion, drug stores to be visited to ensure stock availability including finding out who is using his products and his competition) then, makes sure that his promotional materials (samples, – more... prescription pads, clinical reprints) and other materials committed to the doctors on his previous visit are available and ready to handed over to the MD after his sales call.
The hardest part of the job is Increasingly difficult to have meaningful interactions with doctors As the workload of doctors increase with greater patient volume as well as the demand of patients for more interaction and attention from their doctors, it is becoming nigh impossible for pharmaceutical sales reps to get a piece of the doctors’ time. Very often, any form of interaction lasts for mere minutes, hardly enough time to provide doctors with the information that helps shape their prescribing practice. The most enjoyable part of my job is, Feeling like I’m self-employed, because I have flexibility in my job. Not seeing my boss at the office is a perk. Traveling is another benefit to the job.”
income potential in medical sales is an important benefit to working in medical sales secondly the fact that the harder I work the more I make. – less
