Pros: car, gas card, autonomy, creativity, c-suite on speed dial
Cons: managed care issues, not being able to speak directly to patients
A typical day at work involved planning your route, arranging breakfast & lunch meetings to gain quality time with HCPs and staff in order that they may understand the product and benefits to patients.
I learned that many patients are non-compliant.
Management was very supportive and allowed for our creativity in the field and meetings.
My co-workers were spread all over the nation. Regardless, we all communicated on a weekly basis to share our experience in the field and make suggestions for areas which we were having challenges in.
Hardest part of job...not being able to speak directly to patients.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when a patient enrolled in our program and saw the results is a short amount of time.
